The Victory Services Club (VSC) today re-opens its El Alamein and Trafalgar Suite following a £1.5 million investment to refurbish the space.
The new space, with a capacity to host between 10 and 250 guests, will be used for conferences, awards ceremonies and corporate functions and will be supported by a state-of-the-art, high specification kitchen. The refurbishment has seen the suite fitted out with contemporary flooring and energy saving LED lighting as well as the latest audio visual equipment which includes wireless microphones, two displays that connect to AV wall plates and a Crestron control panel set up to regulate the technology for both rooms.
As part of the refurbishment, the military members club has created two separate entrances to the El Alamein and Trafalgar rooms enabling the two spaces to be used together or independently, according to the requirements of the event planners and delegates.
The newly refurbished suite will be showcased on Thursday 29th September at the venue’s VSC Vineyard event. Clients and event planners are expected to attend the evening showcase which will include wine tasting, food samples and a tour of the new spaces.
The VSC’s CEO Nigel Beet says: “We’re very excited to offer a fresh new look to the El Alamein and Trafalgar Suite. At the VSC we pride ourselves on keeping all our facilities up to date in order to deliver the best possible service to our members and delegates. It is wonderful to finally be able to showcase the new suite after spending six months transforming the space.”
