Customer Feedback from Doosan Bobcat EMEA

We are a Construction Machinery company, so for us the Heart of England Conference and Events Centres location is ideal. Centre of the country, so accessible to dealers from GB. Local airports, Birmingham and East Midlands. The grounds allow us to test and use our machines (digging, lifting, moving). There is accommodation, conference rooms, the Boat House is great for Service Training.

We worked together with Lucia to tailor a schedule for what were two events on successive days with different scopes. Her patience with the ever-changing requirements was admirable. A pleasure to deal with.

Every staff member went out of their way. One particular member even offered some of our guests lifts to a nearby hotel when they couldn’t find Taxis (it was late, and due to the size of our group, we also had to use a nearby hotel).

The food was great! Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner and a Gala Dinner, I really can’t sing his praises high enough. For our training session lunch, the chef prepared a meat pie, and on the pastry, he added our brand’s logo and name, a lovely touch and the pie was fantastic.

All the little requests made, be it diesel, funnels, or signs, were all satisfied with a smile. It really was like being at home. The site is non-standard; it’s quirky, which makes it unique. For our needs, especially the machine testing, it is ideal.

Please pass on my thanks to all the staff, bar, kitchen, cleaners, reception, and top-notch service from everyone.

Early Christmas Bonus

Early Christmas Bonus for the Sales Team.

We’ve experienced a surge in enquiries over the last few years. As a result, we’ve expanded our team and added space to the main offices to accommodate the increased demand. The new, state-of-the-art sales office has opened and the new team are in.

Stephen Hammon, the Managing Director and Owner of The Heart of England expressed his excitement regarding the high volume of enquiries they have been receiving and his pride in his team for their tireless efforts in providing quotes and conducting show rounds and briefings. The most popular types of events requested are festival-styled fun days, team building, conferences, exhibitions, and product launches, according to the observed trend.

The Sales Team work hard and with the festive season upon us and the increased demand with Christmas and New Year’s Eve Party bookings along with Santa’s Grotto on top of the day-to-day corporate enquiries, I felt the office had become a tad cramped for the number of staff we have. I surprised them with the news that I planned to extend their offices and promised to complete it all by Christmas. They were understandably excited and thrilled when we broke ground some months ago and I am delighted to say, we are ahead of schedule so as a little Christmas bonus, they have now moved into their brand new, spacious, and very modern offices!

Heart of England new office

We are always on the lookout for talented, enthusiastic people to join the team. If you or someone you know has skills and a background in corporate events, please get in touch by emailing pa@heartofengland.co.uk.
We would be happy to hear from you. You never know, your Christmas bonus this year could be a new job with an exciting, creative and forward-thinking established business!
