ROBINSONS VISITORS CENTRE CELEBRATES 1 YEAR IN BUSINESS

Robinsons Visitors Centre celebrates 1 year in business

Robinsons Brewery in Stockport are celebrating 1 year in business for their Visit England accredited Visitors Centre with the launch of a new conference room called ‘Frederic’s Room’; such is the demand.

Since its launch at the end of March 2013, the Apsley Street conferencing and educational centre has welcomed over 10,000 people from all over the world, from local MP’s to the Finnish ambassador, as well as beer fans from Sweden, China, Brazil, and America.

Over the last 12 months, Robinsons have accommodated over 100 conferences and meetings for local businesses and groups in their Old Tom meeting Room, taken over 6000 people on a tour of their brewery, plus they have hosted over 40 bespoke evening tours with between 15 and 80 people. The feedback has been universally positive as can be seen via their Trip Advisor reports.

Robinsons have also hosted a number of pub trips from across their estate; giving customers an insight into the effort that goes into creating the perfect pint.

The restaurant and bar area is proving popular with both regular visitors for lunch or coffee and customers enjoying a meal before or after doing the brewery tour. Over the Christmas period over 400 Christmas meals, incorporating a tour, were enjoyed (that’s a lot of steps when you have just had a turkey dinner).

Commenting on the first year of trading, Robinsons Retail Operations Manager, Simon Taylor said: “The feedback we’ve received to date has been overwhelming. In-between brewery tours, sell out Simon Rimmer events, and mixing business with pleasure, we’re delighted to be able to offer our customers another new conferencing facility, complete with disabled access.

The Frederic’s Room is a more intimate meeting space and perfect for smaller groups of up to 20, whereas the Old Tom room is superb for larger bookings of 70. Conducting a meeting or seminar in a brewery, and a working one at that, will certainly give business guests something to talk about. We pride ourselves on offering flexibility and a memorable experience and once you’ve got the business side of things out of the way, you can end the day with a brewery tour and a pint (or two) at the bar. It you haven’t visited yet, what are you waiting for?
