At last, time to write and let you know how happy everyone was with the venue and the extremely high level of attention every member of your staff gave to making our event such a success. From the start of the booking process to the event itself everyone involved with Southport Convention Centre were always helpful and available to deal with any enquiries.

The competitors and the working team gave such praise to the fantastic way any and every problem or query was dealt with, nothing was too much trouble.

The speed at the walls coming down on Saturday at the end of the first day of our event ensuring the Waterfront Suite was ready for the carvery with dancing in the evening and then at 7.00am it was just as we left it at 6.00pm the night before, fantastic. What a team at the Convention Centre and a huge thank you to each and every one of them, Wendy who dealt with all my phone calls, Sarah always there to discuss the requirements needed. For the weekend event Sarah, Helen and Philip were available at all times which helped to ensure the 2013 KFA Championships were such a success.

As you know this was my last national event for the KFA due to my resignation in September, but as my last event I could not have been happier than to end it in Southport at the Convention Centre.

Thank you once again for everything.

Kind regards.
” Linda Moore – KFA Events Organiser (Keep Fit Association)

Just to thank you for the excellent service you provided for my party and also to mention how very courteous pleasant and helpful the staff were.

The buffet was exceptional and apparently the lasagne was to die for as everyone commented on it so special thanks to the chef!

The room looked lovely thanks to Claire!

Everything ran very smoothly and the service provided was excellent so would recommend you to anyone planning an event.

Thanks once again

” Chris Moeri – 60th Birthday Party

” General Secretary ADA Ltd – Olympic Dance Festival

Yesterday I attended the JISC event at the theatre.
I was really struck by the superb service provided by the STCC staff – absolutely nothing was too much trouble.
The electricians, catering staff, door staff…. everyone was really cheerful and helpful – as a visitor it was extremely noticeable, it made the day a real pleasure and makes me want to recommend the venue to as many other people as possible.
Excellent service is an increasingly rare thing, so really, really well done.

” Paul Greenhalgh – SkillWise UK Limited

I have used Southport Theatre and Convention Centre since 2009 as the venue for the safeguarding training I deliver. At all times the service I received from the Centre was excellent beginning with the booking process and my requirements for the training, right through to the day of the training. As these are large training events they would not have run as smoothly as they did without the support of the staff at Southport Theatre.

Louise Kearney – Learning and Development Officer – Sefton Council Workforce Learning and Development Team

Many thanks again for a really successful evening on Saturday 12 January – everything went really well and everyone enjoyed themselves. Please thank all staff and DJ for helping us with the evening’s success, yet again.

” NW Regional Manager – Confederation of Passenger Transport – Annual Dinner

We all thought it was a great night; the food was really good, the entertainment was great and the whole night seemed very well organised. I often find that when I go to party nights I get served last because I have the vegetarian meal and all the meat eaters in the room get their food first and I’m sat waiting, getting very hungry. It was a nice change to be the first one served at the table and to get food that is more inspiring than the usual melon and lasagne that most places have as vegetarian option. We all agreed the dessert was wonderful. Please send me any further information on party nights and I will definitely be recommending it to others.

” Elim Pre-School – Motown Christmas Party Night

May I thank you for all your hard work during our event for the Universe. Throughout, all your staff too were a breath of fresh air, nothing was too much trouble.

The Friday Promenade Area worked exceptionally well, running like clockwork and giving us all the room required with a professional touch as an added bonus.

Everything on Saturday also worked very well, and again all your staff were very helpful and radiant.

All this helps me to perform my duties well too, and in turn passes onto my Working Team.

” Val Charles – National Amateur Body-Builders Association (NABBA Head Quarters)

I always knew that the Southport Convention Centre was the best venue in town, even before we held our events there, I knew by the way you dealt with my enquiries and requests. Having experienced it at first hand now, I can officially state, that it is the best place to hold any event from parties, weddings, corporates and more. We would absolutely recommend The STCC for any event and hope to establish a long term business relationship. Thanks again for all your support and help.

” Actastic Showcase – October 2013

I do not remember, ever, when we have received so many compliments on a Show, not only on how we had organised it, but also on how friendly, kind, helpful and cheerful the staff at the STCC were throughout the Show. At every point in the Show whenever we needed help it was there, if we or our competitors/visitors were going wrong in some way it was dealt with in a firm but fair way which drew nothing but praise from everyone.

Your Staff handled the crowds superbly. Whenever we passed through the halls we were stopped by visitors saying what a lovely venue it was, how well our show suited the halls, and very friendly staff. This does not normally happen and the comments were repeated by my committee members who have worked in other venues and know the kind of comments our visitors usually make. We may be volunteers but we do pride ourselves on doing a professional job and love to work alongside a team as good as yours.
