Schiller Hall Conference Centre Competition Winner

Following an excellent level of interest and large number of entries into the Buckfast Abbey Schiller Hall Conference Centre competition, we’re delighted to announce that Robin Barker, from Services for Tourism, has been randomly drawn as our winner.

Robin’s prize is FREE use of the newly renovated, state-of-the-art Schiller Hall for a whole day, saving his organisation £1,160 on hire charges. Having recently undergone an extensive £2million makeover, the new-look event hall is capable of catering for up to 120 delegates and can be booked for a minimum of 60 users.

The award-winning business, Services for Tourism, works with the public and private tourism industry to organise conferences, awards programmes, consultancy, and presentations. Earlier this year, it became the first business to be awarded an Outstanding Trust Mark for its Tourism Awards.

Buckfast Abbey looks forward to hosting Services for Tourism’s next big event at the newly launched Conference Centre, and welcomes enquiries from other organisations interested in hiring either the Schiller Hall, or one of its eight meeting rooms at the on-site conference centre.

Conveniently located just off the A38 between Exeter and Plymouth at the heart of Buckfast Abbey, Schiller Hall is an inspirational and easily accessible venue for meetings, conferences, exhibitions, trade shows or events, and is part of the Abbey’s wider Conference Centre offering.
