CACG continuing to lead the way in conferences and events

The Cooper Associates County Ground has once again hosted a number of outstanding events in the last few weeks.

The Exeter Insurance Institute held its 98th Annual Dinner at the home of Somerset County Cricket Club on March 6th.

It was the first time that the event had been held outside of Devon.

Following the event, Phil Wilson ACII, President of the Exeter Insurance Institute said: “This is becoming referred to as one of the best dinners ever held by those attending and seasoned Annual Dinner attendees. A core reason for this was the friendly and welcoming atmosphere, the excellent food and attention to detail by Brian and his Hospitality and Events Team.”

The Somerset Fellowship of Drama Awards were also held at the Cooper Associates County Ground recently.

Event spokesperson, Angela Hurdman said: “Our event, a theatrical awards ceremony for two hundred and sixty people was, as ever, managed and delivered superbly by the County Ground’s team.

“Preparations were made friendly and easy by Brian Lee, who guided us through the process very smoothly.

“The event itself ran like clockwork. Sophie and her team were friendly, organised professionalism personified. The food, three courses including a great choice of menu options was delicious, attractively presented and delivered in a very timely manner.

“The feedback from attendees was entirely positive (and this can be a ‘picky’ crowd!).

“The technical side of things, in terms of audio/visual equipment available to us was first rate.

“We will not hesitate to book the venue again for next year and would wholeheartedly recommend it and the team.”
