David Murray, Managing Director, The Business Magazine

The Royal Berkshire Conference Centre was a great choice for our recent exhibition. The venue was great and all the staff were incredibly professional and helpful in the run up to the event and on the day of the exhibition, nothing was too much trouble. The venue was great and I would definitely recommend it to others.
