Butlin’s has announced its fifth consecutive year of growth in the meetings and events sector, up 6.8 per cent year on year having hosted 14,424 delegates since the start of 2017. And since re-entering the market five years ago, Butlin’s Conference & Events has grown 153.8 per cent.

This year's "Think you know Butlin’s? Think Again" campaign has helped Butlin’s Conference & Events achieve growth for the fifth year running, as well as welcoming a host of high-profile clients.

Emma Lee, marketing manager at Butlin’s Conference & Events, said: “It’s been another brilliant 12 months for Butlin’s Conference & Events, and we are delighted with another year of increased growth. As well as steady reinvestment in our resorts’ facilities, our success has been driven by our continued investment in our team.

"We are extremely proud of our imbedded culture of ‘bringing out the best in people’, which applies to every delegate that walks through our doors, as well as every single person who works for our company. We believe our team’s commitment in delivering great customer service in an environment that is fun and energising for our clients, is why we see this continued growth year on year. We very much look forward to continuing to build on this success in the months and years to come.”

Butlin’s has invested more than £200 million on new facilities and events teams, including the launch of new Fairground Apartments and refurbished Silver Apartments at Skegness this year, as well as new Seaside Apartments at Bognor Regis and Minehead in 2016, and Skegness in 2015. Other recent launches include a West Lake Chalet Village at Minehead and the refurbishment of the Shoreline Hotel at Bognor Regis.
