IoD East Midlands Premises

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, we recommend contacting the premises before visiting. News is changing at a very past pace and the premises themselves will have the most up to date information on if they are open and how to utilise them. 

Member Facilities in Nottingham:

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

Crowne Plaza Hotel, Nottingham

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 

Your exclusive rates include:

  • 50% off hot drinks in the bar
  • 25% off bar and food
  • 15% off meetings space and accommodation (*Discount is subject to availability) 

Please show your IoD membership card when ordering food or drinks. For all meetings, events and accomodation please quote IoD 2019/20 when enquiring

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.
