Sodexo has won a £14.4m contract to manage conference and hotel services at the Stirling Management Centre - an enterprise of the University of Stirling.
The six-year deal will see the firm provide services at the 101-bedroom centre from 1 August.
The Stirling Management Centre is the only venue in Scotland to have achieved the Conference Centre of Excellence Award. Sodexo will provide a wide range of services for the centre, including conference support, restaurant and conference dining, bar facilities, housekeeping and accommodation services.
The centre is renowned for the quality of its conference facilities, services and location. Outside of the conference and events business, the Stirling Management Centre operates as a 3* commercial hotel which Sodexo will run.
In 2009, Sodexo was awarded a contract worth almost £9m by the University of Stirling. It delivers catering, vending and hospitality services to the university's 11,500 students, 1,500 staff on-site and commercial customers.
Paul Cowie, Sodexo account manager, said: "We are delighted to have won this contract to provide services at the Stirling Management Centre, building on the excellent work already undertaken at the university. We look forward to working with the centre and to further enhancing our partnership with the University of Stirling."
