Racecourse seeks events

Have your say

Doncaster Racecourse and Exhibition Centre staff are attending a major international event exhibition in London this week, showcasing what the venue has to offer visitors from across the UK and overseas.

More than 15,000 people are expected to attend the three-day International Confex, at Earls Court in London, with event management professionals looking to find the best venues for their companies and clients.

A report has indicated the business and events industry, corporate hospitality, conferences and meetings, is worth around £36 billion to the UK economy.

In recent years Doncaster Racecourse has developed events to a level on a par with its horse racing programme, after a £34 million investment at Town Moor in 2007.
