You Say top 10 Uk Conference Venue Hotels 2006

The conference market seems to be on the up and up for UK Hotels. "Hotels, universities and other academic venues, and conference/training venues typically hosted more conferences than other venues (hotels an average of 546 conferences; universities and conference/training centres an average of 507)" (British Conference Venues Survey ď published Monday 18th September 2006 by the British Association of Conference Destinations).
