Quickly locate, contact and book the perfect venue with accommodation for any business trip or event
Leading group holiday rentals website Group Accommodation has branched out with a new sister site offering business break organisers a one-stop-shop for finding suitable accommodation and venues for their business events and trips.

BusinessGroupAccommodation.com showcases a diverse range of venues with on-site accommodation, ranging from private rural property rentals to large conference centres.
From team-building breaks and employee reward holidays to residential workshops and off-site meetings, there's something for every type of business group trip.

The site's founder, James Maughan, says, “Trip organisers can quickly narrow down their search by location, property type, venue capacity, and how many people the property can sleep overnight. To save hours of valuable business time, organisers can also add up to 15 of their favourite venues to their own online shortlist as they browse the site, then send a single message direct to all the owners of these properties in one hit.”

“And the other big bonus is that the site is completely free to use. There are no 'hidden' costs — organisers can simply contact the venues and book direct, avoiding unnecessary agency fees.”

Inspiration for business breaks

BusinessGroupAccommodation.com features a range of articles offering Ideas and tips for business breaks, whether you're planning a staff activity holiday, looking for innovative corporate entertainment ideas, or seeking advice on how to plan a successful team building break. Each article provides handy accommodation suggestions for each type of break.

Active business breaks

For those organising activity-based business breaks, whether it's Abseiling, 4x4 Driving or Paintballing, the Business Activity Search suggests accommodation options offering each activity either on site, or nearby in the local area.

Meetings and conference trips

For companies that are tired of stuffy, conventional hotel meeting rooms and would like to book a more inspiring venue for their business meeting or workshop, BusinessGroupAccommodation.com has many characterful and quirky properties offering modern business facilities in unique settings.

Late availability

The site's Last Minute Deals section throws a lifeline to those organisers who have been given tight deadlines for planning the trip and are looking to secure a venue with late availability.

BusinessGroupAccommodation's founder, James Maughan, says, “After launching our mainstream group holiday accommodation website, GroupAccommodation.com, we noticed that a large number of properties were catering for business customers, so we decided to launch a specialised site catering specifically to this market. Our team has worked hard to attract a really wide selection of some of the best UK business venues onto the site in time for our launch, and to place them in the relevant categories, offering organisers a genuinely useful resource to find the perfect place to host their corporate event or business break.”
