Bryony Smith, sales office manager at The Haycock Hotel, commented “We are delighted to be an accommodation partner with the East of England Arena & Events Centre, and look forward to helping to turn day visitors into overnight guests, delivering greater benefits to the local economy and helping the region and the city of Peterborough become a destination of choice for exhibition visitors, music fans and conference delegates.”

Dean Rees, business development manager, East of England Arena and Events Centre, said “Striking up partnerships with hotels in the region helps us further improve and develop our complete visitor experience, and provides organisers with another reason to bring their events to us.
