The 1,800 square-foot two-story conference and event centre just erected at Village Cay in the heart of Road Town is gearing up to officially open its doors to the public.
Ahead of its official opening in a few short weeks, the centre will host its first one-day Women’s Conference on Saturday.
General Manager of hotel and marina Chaunci Cline told BVI News that even before the facility officially opens, it is already showing signs of being in high demand.
“We are very excited,” a clearly ecstatic Cline remarked.
Cline said she is pleased with the product and is hoping that it turns out to be one of the key venues in the territory.
She sought to explain the reason for the new centre.
“Village Cay is becoming a very strong international hub for tourism and based on a customer survey that we did some time ago, we noted that we were lacking common space that was air-conditioned, that was an open, enclosed space for training, special events, [and] wedding receptions,” she said.
About the facility
It will be equipped with Wi-Fi, audio-visual offerings, and other high-end technology.
The multipurpose conference centre will be able to hold a total of 70 to 100 persons.
The upstairs will be used as office spaces for the hotel.
The project began in July last year.
It is being undertaken by Construction Engineering Systems.
