Nottingham Racecourse has introduced a pay-as-you-go conferencing package aimed at local businesses in response to a more "financially sensible mindset" driven by the economy.
Prices are allocated on an hourly basis and meeting rooms can be booked as late as two hours before arrival.
The package aims to fill a gap in the local market by offering last minute booking opportunities which are both flexible and affordable, with prices starting at £50+VAT for the first hour and gradually decreasing throughout the day.
Nadia Gollings, commercial manager at Nottingham Racecourse, said: "At the racecourse we appreciate the economy has orchestrated a more financially sensible mindset for event organisers across the country.
"We wanted to create a package which reflects current fiscal actualities and we have introduced pay-as-you-go conferencing to make it easier for our clients to book simple and easy packages with no frills attached."
