Stunning new website completes Conference Centre refurbishment

The Wellcome Genome Campus Conference Centre in Hinxton, Cambridge, has launched its striking new website, designed and built by local Cambridge digital agency, Studio 24.

A three-year refurbishment project completed in late 2015 has considerably expanded and improved the venue with the addition of a 1600m² exhibition space, a fully-refurbished 300-seat auditorium, and increased accommodation capacity.   The Conference Centre has now resumed hosting large-scale events for local and international biomedical organisations.

Studio 24 has worked alongside our marketing team to create a website that’s a pleasure to use. Prospective clients will quickly get a feel for the quality of the facilities on offer, and delegates will find all the information they need in preparation for their stay. We are also happy to have introduced an events listing on the site, which we’ve done to further support our clients in their work

The Wellcome Genome Campus Conference Centre is a stunning venue and it’s been fantastic working in partnership with the team to create this user-driven website, which truly reflects the quality of the Centre’s offering

The site’s design makes use of a range of engaging and useful content including downloadable brochures, time-lapse photography, 360° panoramas and short films to bring the venue and its idyllic setting and facilities to life.

Since its reopening in 2015 the Conference Centre has seen a 26 per cent rise in bookings, and this new website aims to further increase uptake by their target market, biomedical sector businesses and organisations.
