Peterborough Arena can be many things to many people – and that includes a smart and efficient conference centre!

We can offer an impressive portfolio of conference facilities to suit any conference, seminar, workshop or meeting.

Whether you’re organising a business or corporate event or hosting a trade conference or public meeting, our flexible space and conference room hire will work for you.

Size is not an issue, and you are guaranteed the same high level of service whether you are booking an event for a handful of delegates or 1,000-plus people.

We have seven unique indoor spaces – from smaller, more intimate, dressed rooms with matching furnishings to larger modern, dynamic glass-roofed event spaces.

All have access to or can be served with full catering facilities and most are equipped with projectors, screens and PA systems. We are one of only a handful of venues that can offer FREE WiFi in the main areas of the venue – for a small charge, a faster broadband connection can be arranged for use in the exhibition halls and suites if required.

Our vast outdoor event space can also be utilised for conferences where machinery or vehicles are an integral part of the event – and is a key feature for some of our established national conferences.

Any event organised will also benefit from consistent communication from a designated member of our dedicated event management team and full technical support before and during the event itself.

Should catering be required, our in house chef and his team can meet a range of dietary requirements – ranging from a three-course lunch to breakfast pastries and rolls. We pride ourselves on using fresh, seasonal local produce where possible.

On behalf of everyone at the Peterborough Telegraph I would like to thank The Peterborough Arena most sincerely for your generous sponsorship of the cheese course at our recent annual Peterborough Telegraph Business Awards 2012. I really am very grateful for your support; I think that the event itself was fantastic and your help beforehand and on the day by you and your team cannot be thanked for enough.
