HCC is an extraordinary venue in the North that excels in the top three criteria for a venue, namely destination, accessibility and facilities.
Over the years HCC has hosted numerous medical and professional associations, political and academic conferences, corporate events, trade and consumer exhibitions, not to mention banquets and entertainment. Many of them have been coming back for decades, such as the iconic Christmas & Gift Fair that has been coming to Harrogate for 70 years.
Being a Victorian spa town, Harrogate delivers a unique, relaxing delegate experience distinct from bigger cities. HCC’s town centre location means delegates can fully enjoy all that our beautiful, walkable town has to offer–from accommodation, dining, shopping
to award-winning gardens and the iconic Turkish Baths–without needing transport.
Visit Britain’s Business Event Survey found that Harrogate is not only recommended by 96% of delegates, 88% also said they were either ‘likely’ or ‘very likely’ to return in their own time for leisure.
LOCATION & ACCESSIBILITY
Being equidistant from Edinburgh and London, east and west coasts of the UK with excellent air, road and rail connections, we are highly accessible from all corners of the country.
Our 13,700 sqm of well-equipped versatile spaces, including a state-of-the-art 2,000-seat auditorium, as well as impeccable services
