SOUTHWOLD-based brewers Adnams are set to become approved suppliers for the new multi-million pound Trinity Park Conference and Events Centre in Ipswich.

Suffolk Agricultural Association's centre, on the site formerly known as Suffolk Showground, is due to be officially unveiled in just a few weeks' time.

The major new business partnership with the beer-makers follows a consultative process in which Trinity Park has been seeking to form partnerships with food and drinks businesses which can help provide the catering for the £3.2million centre.

Trinity Park's commercial manager Lesley Frost, who announced the decision, said the association was “delighted” that Adnams would now be working with them to provide wine and beers for the centre.

“Adnams obviously has a very good reputation nationally and is known as Suffolk's very own brewery,” she said.

“At the heart of our approach to the events centre is a strong understanding of our Suffolk heritage, so this partnership works very well for us.

“It will be appreciated by local people who use the facility for their business functions and weddings, but also by those who bring exhibitions to us from across the country and beyond.”

Day Harvey, business development manager for Adnams, said they were “thrilled” to be working with Trinity Park and to have been selected as the approved supplier for the new events centre.

“Last year we worked closely with the Suffolk Agricultural Association when we launched our Flagship beer at the Suffolk Show. We feel this new partnership is a great extension of that existing relationship,” he said.

“At Adnams, we very much believe that the Trinity Park Conference and Events Centre will be a premier facility for this region, attracting a wide audience of private and business customers from across the UK.

“With that in mind, we are confident that this relationship will serve both our businesses well in the future.”

The centre, owned by the association and open for business from this month , has been designed with the needs of the business community in mind.

It is capable of holding conferences for up to 1,000 delegates and dinners for up to 400. It also has the potential to be split into six separate spaces for smaller meetings and seminars.

Construction work began at the site last autumn and is due to be completed within the association's 175th year. It is now available for bookings.
