IoD East Midlands Premises

Member Facilities in Nottingham – IMPORTANT, PLEASE READ

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

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. We also have a premises in Leicester at the Castle Business School, please see more below

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.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused and hope to see you in 2019.

IoD East Midlands Leicester Premises

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.
