The Food WorksSW is the region’s only food tech and innovation centre. Its fully accessible meeting rooms, conference rooms with audio visual capabilities and networking Business Lounge have now fully reopened. They offer the perfect environment for food industry and other professionals to hold meetings, events and more.
Rachel Goff is The Food WorksSW’ new Senior Technical and Site Manager. Rachel said, “I’ve joined the fantastic on-site team at an exciting time. Our business units are almost fully let to a diverse range of food companies, and we’re ready to welcome people back to hold their meetings, workshops and conferences in our contemporary facilities.”
Simon Gregory, The Food WorksSW’ Commercial Manager, said, “Our location is ideal, just ten minutes from J21 of the M5 in North Somerset’s Food Enterprise Zone. Business people from any profession – they don’t have to be in food – can book one of our fully equipped spaces or hold an informal meeting here in the Business Lounge.
“Our meeting rooms seat from six to eight people currently, due to social distancing – normally it’s around double that. They range in size and are flexible so they can be combined to increase delegate capacity. We also have a video-conferencing room for hire, and the on-site kit available to room bookers includes new audio-visual equipment.
“Refreshments are available throughout the day for those using the Business Lounge to catch up with work or to meet colleagues or clients. High-quality catering for our meetings and events is provided by our on-site Moorlander Café. We’ve got great Wi-Fi throughout and lots of free parking, plus covered bike shelters for those cycling, and Weston Milton Station is a 15-minute walk away. Everything is on one level making it an inclusive and accessible environment for everyone.”
Kerry O’Neill is a local freelance copywriter who uses the Business Lounge for lunches and meetings. She says, “It’s an airy and sunny space, with comfy leather sofas and high tables with bar stools for when I need a break from working at home. It’s a unique environment – both in terms of the building and its tenants – that I often recommend to my clients in the region for their own conferencing, product launch and events needs.”
The business area is open from 09:00 to 17:00 Monday to Friday. All Covid guidelines will be followed for those planning meetings or events, with sanitiser, face masks and hand-washing facilities available as appropriate.”
Rachel emphasised “All business users are welcome at The Food WorksSW. You don’t need to be in the food and drink industry to use our Business Lounge or to book meeting rooms, events and workshops…though you might discover a few fantastic new food brands while you’re here!”
