Merchant Venturers building

Woodland Road, Clifton, Bristol BS8 1UB

As a modern facility on the University precinct, the Merchant Venturers Building is the home of the University’s Computer Sciences Department, so it makes an ideal meeting and conference venue, with access to all the hi-tech equipment you could possibly need. 

There are plenty of meeting rooms, catering for groups from 30 to 98. The lecture theatre holds 200.

The light and airy Atrium holds up to 300, and also offers plenty of room for exhibitions. Conference delegates, for instance, would need to pass through the Atrium to attend meetings and lectures.

The on-site catering team is also on hand to feed delegates tasty snacks and meals.

This all adds up to a very popular and adaptable venue which is perfect for facilitating a wide range of meetings and conferences, and definitely should be considered.
