Member Facilities in the East Midlands

30 Apr 2019

Member Facilities 

Our sincere apologies but the meeting space in the Business Lounge at Nottingham Trent University is no longer available.

Below you will find information regarding Member Facilities in the East Midlands.

If you have any queries or questions please contact us on 0115 848 6190 or email Cari Grice


Crowne Plaza Hotel 

We are seeking a longer term alternative but in the meantime we have negotiated with Crowne Plaza Hotel Nottingham (5 mins away from previous lounge) that IoD members can use their space in the atrium which has plenty of different seating areas, and the option to book private meeting rooms at a discounted cost of 15%.  

There will also be a discount on production of your IoD membership no. of 50% on teas, coffees and hot drinks and 25% on food.

The entrance to the Crowne Plaza hotel is on Wollaton Street and the nearest tram stop to the hotel is the Theatre Royal stop, which is visible from the entrance to the hotel. This will take you directly to and from Nottingham train station, or the tram park and ride sites.


Crowne Plaza Hotel Nottingham, Wollaton Street, Nottingham. NG1 5RH


Castle Business School, part of De Montfort University

Under the leadership of Professor Dana Brown, the school is based in the inspirational setting of the Great Hall of Leicester Castle, which has recently undergone a £4.2 million refurbishment programme.

The 11th century building is newly-restored and part of De Montfort University’s new world-class business school.

Contractors have carefully brought the former courthouse - which has been disused since 1992 - back into life, restoring its original features and incorporating them into a sophisticated, professional design.
