Robinson College, Cambridge, has reported an 11 per cent year-on-year revenue growth for meetings and events in the first half of the 2015/16 financial year.

The positive results reflect an 18 per cent increase in enquiries for event space at Robinson College compared to the same period last year.

Conference and catering manager Nick Milne said: “This highly positive figure gives great indication for a healthy year of hospitality at Robinson College. In particular it demonstrates the dividends achieved by the decision we made a couple of years ago to innovate through new event spaces and business approaches. It also emphasises the amazing work of our dedicated meetings and events team, who embody our approach to adding value and going the extra mile, further highlighted by the achievement of the AIM Gold accreditation in 2015.”

New developments at the college include the new Crausaz Wordsworth Building, opened in September 2015, which has proved popular and has already played host to 49 events. Other initiatives, such as the long-running Service+ programme, and its development and evolution have also contributed to the increase. 

Milne added: “With half the business year left, we certainly won’t be resting on our laurels; with a full schedule of meetings and events it promises to be a busy spring/summer. We are also building on the legacy we have built with the award-winning clic+ and have some exciting news to announce at next week’s International Confex 2016, where we will be exhibiting. We look forward to further growth in 2016 and will continue to deliver exceptional client experiences, according to our commitments to Service+.”
