The OEC’s high-quality training venue is presented with the standards you and your team need for a successful training event.

Delegate Packages

Food and Refreshments

Training can be thirsty and hungry work, which is all the more reason to book a training venue with a delicious selection of delegate menus. Our talented on-site team of chefs create a range of menu options from finger buffets to banquets, perfect for training lunches, and breakfasts for early morning starts. When you and your team need more than a quick coffee to hit the ground running, our kitchen crew is on hand to help.

The OEC’s popularity with businesses in the region doesn’t just stem from the pleasant surroundings of our stylish and contemporary Sheffield training venue. The conference and meeting venue standards here are backed by first-class dining and service, offering an affordable alternative to the boring buffet options every training organiser dreads.

Before you book your training room at the OEC, you’ll have the opportunity to explore your ideal catering options with the team. Whether it is a morning meeting or a day of intensive training, it pays to ensure that your guests have plenty of appealing refreshments. When your team is suitably refreshed by one of our fantastic menus, they will once again be raring to go.

A Training Venue with Flexibility

The OEC’s training room hire options provide more than just a simple space to deliver presentations. Our spaces are ideal for large conference-style training events as well as for small groups. When you need to take your team of delegates off-site, the OEC offer a range of comfortable, versatile spaces that are ready to help you deliver a fantastic training session.

Our largest training room for hire, the Rivelin Suite, comfortably accommodates up to 500 guests. The flexibility of this suite comes with its ability to be segregated into two or three smaller training spaces. Each individual space then becomes ideal for up to 100 delegates, up to 150 delegates, or up to 250 delegates.

We offer four separate VIP Hospitality Boxes, each accommodating 20 guests, with the option to combine all four boxes to accommodate 80 guests. They are ideal for smaller groups, or as a breakout space for large groups using the main Rivelin Suite. Each Box has a large glass window wall with private balcony, ensuring there is plenty of natural light to deliver training.

The OEC boardroom is perfect for small groups of 2 to 10 guests, seated around a single large table with office-style seating. The boardroom has plenty of space for refreshments and training or presentations.
