Taking bookings for autumn 2022 onwards, the reopening of both locations comes after a period of closure due to the pandemic, with the investment going into upgrading and enhancing the facilities.
Center Parcs said it “takes pride” in offering “nature-rich escapes” to suit all types of corporate events, including conferences, team building and away days, product launches and gala dinners.
Both Sherwood Forest and Woburn Forest offer dedicated conference and event spaces in the heart of the forest, providing the “perfect setting” for event planners, delegates, and colleagues to “escape the everyday and embrace nature”.
Julia Green, the newly appointed Sales and Commercial manager at Center Parcs, said: “To say ‘we’re back’ is extremely exciting. Following an in-depth study of the current trends within the industry, we’ve reviewed our product offering and made changes in response to client demand. We haven’t just switched back on, we’ve repositioned an already fantastic product to make it more enticing and rewarding than ever before.
“Center Parcs is a living breathing destination, it’s immersive, inspiring, and energising – the overall experience will leave delegates feeling enchanted by the great outdoors and go home feeling refreshed. Unforgettable memories are made here. It’s a place delegates will want to rush back to and tell their family and friends about – we can’t wait to welcome them back this September.”
She added: “With two excellently located and easily accessible destinations, we attract businesses, large and small, from all across the UK. We can support everything from conferences for up to 600 through to team events for 10, and our dedicated conference teams work alongside event planners to help make the most of their Center Parcs experience.”
Colin Whaley, Sales and Marketing director at Center Parcs, added: “The conference and events industry’s reawakening since the pandemic has seen a spike in interest in unique locations with nature at the heart, allowing businesses to combine valuable work and collaboration with wellbeing, all in a professional environment. We feel the relaunch of Woburn Forest and Sherwood Forest couldn’t be better timed.”
