Here at Elsie Whiteley Innovation Centre, we’ve invested in state-of-the-art conferencing facilities to help you and your teams connect, collaborate and create.

Our innovative approach to building a business community means we have a whole host of high quality modern meeting spaces that accommodate anything from intimate one-to-ones to virtual global gatherings, with facilities and features that flex to business needs.

With almost 15 years in business, we’re looking back on our transformation from a textile mill to a thriving professional hub. Our heritage background and striking architectural features, combined with modern and considered design elements, has helped us to become one of the region’s most coveted workspace providers, injecting life into meeting spaces for an unmatched experience.

Connect and collaborate

We’ve created a number of spaces that inspire collaboration and productivity, which are attracting professionals far and wide both physically and virtually; thanks to a whole host of high-end features that make connecting with colleagues and clients quicker than boiling a kettle.

As many offices and teams are now located remotely across the UK, businesses are finding new ways to connect without the commute. Not only is The Elsie Whiteley Innovation Centre central to a number of large cities, making team away days accessible for most, we are able to provide your business with almost everything you need to have truly virtual meetings.

  • Wall-mounted HD Smart TV
  • Virtual Conferencing Equipment
  • Whiteboards & Pens
  • Reliable Fast WiFi

Available to all meeting space bookings is our Elsie Owl. A 360o video conferencing tool designed especially for hybrid workspaces, it aids intuitive and immersive meetings that give virtual teams, or participants, a whole-room experience.

It is voice activated and inclusive to all participants and sits in the centre of the room, so it can intelligently zoom in on whoever is speaking for face-to-face interactions.

Make Meetings Matter

With four meeting spaces accommodating up to 120 people, an onsite Café No.5 that offers catering, as well as casual and co-working facilities; we have everything to help you make the most of your in-person meetings and continue work in a purpose-built environment…
