This one was at the BT conference/Echo Arena in Liverpool. http://www.accliverpool.com/ . I have attended concerts there before but wasn't aware of the excellent conference facilities. If you are looking for a NW based venue I would highly recommend this one. After drinks overlooking the River Mersey we were ushered through to the main auditorium - wow! Plush red seats in an usual lay-out. I immediately had a desire to speak from the platform one day!
Today though we were lead onto the stage to be served a wonderful breakfast by Heathcotes http://www.heathcotes.co.uk/ . I have never had a starter course for breakfast before!
My fellow diners consisted of
- Peter Roper of Bovis who had designed and built the arena and also the MEN.
- Pat Murphy, the director of fundraising and communications from St Joseph's hospice http://www.jospice.org.uk/
- Kate Nolan, Sales executive of BT convention Centre http://www.accliverpool.com/
- Dave Potts and Eric O'Callaghan from Select Security Services www.selectsecurity.info
