Testimonial from Christian Young, BAE Systems, 4th & 5th April 2011: -

One of the most difficult parts of organising any event is choosing a suitable venue. The staff at Explosion were very helpful in answering all my initial questions and giving a tour of their excellent facilities. On the day of the conference I arrived to find everything laid out exactly as per our requirements. The staff are all very friendly and were happy to help with any questions or requests I made. With regards to the facilities everything was perfect. The Audio/Visual equipment is top notch and functioned flawlessly for the whole two days and the refreshments provided were excellent. The museum tours were conducted very well despite the limited time we had available and the very knowledgeable staff linked their talks to our theme (Innovation) perfectly.

All that is left to say is a big thanks to the whole team for their assistance and professionalism. If you are looking for an unusual and interesting venue for your event I cannot recommend Explosion highly enough.
