Function rooms in Aviemore

Macdonald Hotels & Resorts has reported significant growth in their conference results. In the 12 month period to March 2013, the group recorded a 7.5% year on year increase in total conference sales and an impressive 27% increase in convention and exhibition sales.

Despite some challenging market conditions, Macdonald Hotels & Resorts has continued to invest and earmarked £5million in 2013 to ensure it remains firmly committed to providing quality meeting space and impeccable service to meeting delegates. 

In a year when the group reported a profit after tax of £1.9 million to 29 March 2012, the progressive group believes understanding and delivering the organisers event objectives, offering first-class facilities and the highest quality of food and drink will ensure Macdonald Hotels & Resorts is the group of choice. This includes continued investment in programmes like BDRC Continental's VenueVerdict, an industry recognised programme to review and benchmark event host feedback to ensure that the highest quality of service is being implemented.

Explained Ruaridh Macdonald, Operations Director, Macdonald Hotels & Resorts: "In a challenging market, our determination to consistently deliver the highest quality of product and service is reflected by encouraging sales results.

"Whether a PA or event organiser, our customers are reassured by the knowledge that they will receive a quick, professional response to an initial enquiry, the option of using flexible, stylish naturally lit meeting space and of course the promise of dining on the finest cuisine." 

Wherever delegates dine; the restaurant, meeting room or conference suite, food is always of the same high quality with dishes served using the freshest produce and prepared from whole raw ingredients.  You really can taste the difference!"

In addition to offering a choice of hotels across a broad geographical area, Macdonald Hotels also offer a diverse range of business facilities and competitive delegate pricing.

Moreover, every event organiser and delegate benefits from Macdonald Hotels & Resorts Meeting@ promise. This all inclusive package is designed to save the client time, maximise budget and ensure the needs of delegates are effortlessly met by a professional team. 

Eschewing the 'cookie cutter' approach, the emphasis is on being flexible to tailor a conference or meeting to the organisers specific objectives.  In addition, the group recognises the importance of offering a reliable, free internet connection.  As a result, the group is making a significant investment this autumn to ensure free WiFi for all business guests and delegates.
