Corporate events that really take-off!

Published on: 19 January 2017


Located in the heart of the Midlands, the Royal Air Force Museum Cosford is the ideal venue for businesses who want to impress their clients with a show stopping setting to make their event stand out and most importantly - make it memorable!

Its central location, with good motorway access, large visitor car park and a nearby train station, makes accessing the museum easy for both event organisers and their guests.

Whether you’re holding a meeting for 10, conference for 200, a gala dinner for 300, or a large product launch, in addition to all the facilities your event requires, your delegates can also enjoy time exploring the museum.  Delegates can spend break times viewing aircraft on display which include the world’s oldest Spitfire and the unique TSR2 to name but a few! Where else can you dine next to the world’s first jet airliner, launch your new product set against a backdrop of pioneering aircraft, or host a drinks reception underneath the mighty Vulcan bomber?

The award winning National Cold War Exhibition is popular with event organisers who want to create a lasting impression with their guests and is ideal for hosting a drinks reception beneath the legendary Vulcan, Victor and Valiant. With plenty of space for networking and iconic aircraft providing a dramatic backdrop, this landmark building and unique exhibition truly has the ‘wow’ factor. If its presentation facilities you’re after, the purpose built theatre inside the National Cold War Exhibition can seat over 200 people and has everything you would expect in a modern meeting room. With all of the equipment already in place, PowerPoint presentations could not be easier, simply turn up with your laptop, plug it in, and begin your presentation.

The museum is also equipped to cater for much smaller and intimate events and meetings. Set within a stunning glass fronted building inspired by the shape of a bi-plane, the Visitor Centre is home to a purpose built conference room, equipped with a full range of presentation aids and can accommodate conferences for up to 130 delegates. With easy access, natural daylight and air-conditioning, this room can also be adapted for smaller meetings, training seminars or breakout rooms for larger events as it sub-divides into two self-contained rooms. Plus, there is the added option of enjoying your lunch breaks in the Visitor Centre with views across the airfield.

Catering by Kudos
In addition to the venue and its facilities, there are a range of optional catering packages available, supplied by the museum’s on-site caterers Kudos. So whether it’s starting the day with a healthy breakfast, an urban picnic lunch, or a formal 3 course evening dinner with an artisan cheese plate, the museum will serve up an event that’s right for you.
