Welcome to The Ark Conference Centre

The Ark is the South of England’s premier conference and events centre with state-of-the-art facilities in a contemporary environment. We are a unique venue – more of a communications hub, with an extremely diverse range of clients and events. These range from defence and security conferences to record album launches; from masterclasses in precision surgical procedures to motivational roadshows; and from small bespoke IT training to large financial breakfast meetings attracting national and international delegates and speakers.

  • "I just wanted to express my sincere thanks to you all for looking after us so brilliantly. Our third and final student conference was easily the best of the three - for all sorts of reasons. However, yet again, your team excelled yourselves and provided a level of service that was exceptional. Many thanks to you all, on behalf of our team, for looking after us SO well.
    I will certainly continue to sing the praises of The Ark as a conference centre"
