British Motor Museum prepares for return to market with a Safe Spaces commitment to customers

 

Warwickshire-based conferencing and event venue, the British Motor Museum, is preparing to reopen once the green light has been given by the Government, with a new customer commitment to ensure delegate safety.

Located on Banbury Road in Gaydon, the British Motor Museum boasts over 2,000sqm of internal conference and exhibition space offering a flexible and bespoke event experience for a wide range of delegates – in the midst of the very best in British automotive heritage.

Whilst the Government is yet to announce a date for conferencing and event facilities to reopen, the British Motor Museum team has devised a new Safe Spaces – Safe Meetings commitment to customers, which outlines the steps which will be put in place to ensure the safety of staff and clients alike. This five point commitment to customers includes flexible bookings and contracts, strict social distancing practices, revised catering provision, increased cleaning regimes and enhanced technology including video/relay conferencing which will be available to enable more guests to attend conferences and exhibitions safely or remotely.

The Safe Spaces – Safe Meetings commitment, which will be regularly updated in line with the latest Government guidance, will be delivered by the British Motor Museum’s new managing director, Jeff Coope, who took over the position in April amidst the Coronavirus crisis. Previously director of operations, Jeff joined the British Motor Museum back in 2002 and has been an integral part of the senior management team responsible for building a stable financial platform for the Museum.

He recently negotiated a long lease on the venue which has provided an opportunity for a hotel and second Museum Collections building to be delivered on site, as well as leading the venue’s recent £2 million conferencing refurbishment to include its new breathtaking rooftop ‘Sky Suite’, offering panoramic views across the Warwickshire countryside.

Jeff Coope, managing director at the British Motor Museum, said: “The British Motor Museum has invested heavily in its corporate social and environmental policies over the years to minimise the effect it has on the local, regional and global environment, and amid this unforeseen global pandemic, our commitment towards supporting and ensuring the wellbeing of our guests and staff is paramount at this time.

“Once we are in a position to reopen our meeting and conferencing facilities following the go ahead from Government, we want to ensure that we take each and every precaution to ensure the safety and peace of mind of all delegates. Our customer commitment outlines the measures that we will be taking to ensure guests have an enjoyable and safe event experience at the British Motor Museum.

“For those already thinking about planning their next big event, we have a new virtual tour which enables event organisers to safely and remotely view the venues facilities from the comfort of their electronic devise. Our talented events and marketing teams are also still on hand and happy to discuss how future events could best work at the British Motor Museum as we look ahead to the future.”
