A conference event at the Runway Visitor Park

Meetings & Conferences

The Centre incorporates our purpose-built super hangar containing the Concorde G-BOAC, legendary flagship of the British Airways’ fleet.

The hangar is ideal for large meetings, dining and exhibitions under the wings of the world-famous aircraft. With 1600m2 of space and seating capacity for 700 people, this is an impressive venue to stage your corporate event.

Within the main building there are two smaller meeting rooms for 40 and 50 delegates (theatre style), ideal for breakout sessions.

For a real aviation flavour and a memorable event, you also have access to the aircraft and cabin interior of a DC-10.

The Concorde Conference Centre at the Runway Visitor Park caters for product launches, gala dinners, team building events, exhibitions or meetings - all taking place around one of the world’s most famous icons.
