College Court wins award at Chamber of Commerce event

Issued by the University of Leicester Press Office on 5 September

The University of Leicester’s conference and training venue College Court has taken pride of place in a prestigious regional awards dinner.

The £17.5million facility has already won a clutch of awards- the latest coming from the East Midlands Chamber of Commerce Awards dinner.

College Court, in Knighton, was selected as Winner of Business Improvement through Technology and Finalist for Excellence in Customer Service.

College Court Director Steve Crawford said: “It was lovely to be in the same room with so many businesses from across the region and see College Court up on the big screen. It was particularly thrilling to hear our name called out as winners.

“Our success is down to a team effort so a huge thank you to all who work at College Court. As we head toward our 3rd Anniversary I am sure that we can look forward to future success and indeed the need to buy a bigger trophy cabinet!

“There is another awards event this coming Friday where we have been shortlisted for Excellence in Professional Services.”

Since opening in October 2013 College Court has generated sales of £6.5 million. With the combined offer of College Court, Stamford Court and the broader portfolio, annual sales for the next financial year will be in excess of £4.5 million. All profits feed directly into the University.

Over 300 people attended the event at Leicester City Football Club's King Power Stadium.

Chamber President Jean Mountain said:

“The Chamber’s congratulations go to all of this year’s winners. We had some really good entries and the judging process was extremely tough, but all of the winning businesses thoroughly deserve their success.

“The standard of competition was extremely high, which clearly shows that despite the surprise of the exit vote at the EU Referendum, we have some real success stories of Leicestershire businesses doing well. All of the finalists also deserve recognition for their success.

“Over the past 12 months, businesses in Leicestershire have been busy investing, innovating, exporting and growing and these awards are testament to the quality of businesses we have in this city and county.”
