Fully accessible and totally flexible
Finding a place to hold a meeting, conference, training session or other event can be difficult if you need fully accessible facilities. Our conferencing facilities are tried and tested because we use them on a day-to-day basis.
The ecdp conferencing team has recently organised a number of high profile events, including a large conference for Essex County Council, hosting the Disability Rights Commission and a visit by the Minister for Disabled People. Our experience in conferencing and event management is not only specially focussed on the needs of disabled people, but offers superb facilities to all organisations at competitive rates.
