"I was recently (4-8th January) at a WTC conference at the Telford campus. This is the second time that I have been to one of these and both times I have been blown away by the service and the staff at the site. I just wanted to write to you to thank you of this. The catering staff, especially, were always helpful and gave the impression that nothing was too much trouble. The staff on reception (although I had less to do with them) were, likewise, helpful and patient.
Basically I wanted to ask that you pass on my thanks to them for their part in making the whole conference experience so pleasurable."

“I would like to thank the catering staff for providing alternatives for me so I was able to eat full meals because of my egg and nut allergy. It is appreciated.”

"Thank you for all of your help from Sunday to Tuesday with our summer school. It all went really well. Big thanks to your catering team who did such a good job accommodating all of our different requirements."
Catherine Wilks - Explore University Activity Worker
"The accommodation was comfortable and the staff looked after us really well - an impressive venue."
"On the staff, I would say that they were very accommodating and had a lovely "can do" attitude - I asked the catering staff a couple of times for things (e.g. bucket for the raffle) and they just calmly went away and sorted it out. When Pamela Butchart arrived very late, the Reception staff were lovely - one of them even walked her over to the accommodation because he didn't want her to be walking on her own."
"I have nothing but praise. Whatever I asked for was dealt with immediately and at no time did anybody say 'sorry we can 't do that .' The catering manager ran a very tight ship - and I thought the food was excellent. On Friday the gentlemen shifting the boxes were so pleasant. As for Karen I found her very professional and helpful throughout the weekend."
"Everything ran very smoothly and all the staff I met were very accommodating."
Feedback from the Federation of Children’s Book Group
“Firstly and most importantly thank you for your hard work yesterday. The venue and food had good scores.
I especially would like to thank Jamie who as you know we think is magic also the catering team who were both professional and friendly. They dealt with the large number of delegate very efficiently and we are very grateful.
The conference was a great success and due in no small part to yourself and your team.”

"I would like to note that the room, facilities, food and service was of a very high standard and we shall use this service again for future meetings. Thank you again."

"Ricoh have hired the main lecture theatre at the Telford Campus for several years. It's a great venue as everything you need from reception arrival, drinks and theatre is all in the one building. The tiered lecture theatre seats 300 people and your presentations look great on the large cinema style screen for all the audience to see. We will be using the theatre again this year."
Pauline Hayward, Ricoh
"AGA Rangemaster have used the meeting room facilities at the Telford Campus on several occasions. Its great on price, location and it's a modern fresh meeting environment. The social lounge area with free-flowing coffee is a great space to meet in, first thing prior to the start of the meeting. I would definitely recommend the conference centre if you are looking for a central location in Telford to meet up."
Shane Ross, AGA Rangemaster
"Our group has always been very well received at the Telford Campus and we all look forward to returning each year (this was the 10th!). Suzie and the rest of the staff could not have been more helpful in organising the accommodation and meals and we certainly intend to return in September 2012!"

"Telford Business Partnership have used the conference and catering facilities at the Telford Campus on several occasions for day meetings and breakfast networking events. I have used them several times as their AV equipment is really easy to use, the staff are friendly and will go ‘the extra mile’ to help. The University is excellent value for money and is an ideal venue for rail and road access in Telford with plenty of free car parking and free wi-fi. We look forward to our next event there."
Jaclyn Kitson, One Telford
"A group of us have been attending the Scale Model World exhibition since 2000. This event is held at the Telford International Centre, and we find that the Telford University Campus provides reasonably priced and clean accommodation. The location is convenient - either by walking or driving, and having a good pub within walking distance is definitely a bonus. The communal kitchen becomes the centre point for socialising before going to one of the pubs in the area, and we have always found the staff and janitors to be welcoming and helpful. We keep returning each year, and can definitely recommend staying at the Telford Campus if you are visiting the area."
