Meetings on the move

If you’re looking for a venue with the wow factor check out this selection of mobile meeting spaces with a difference. All of them can be booked through Inntel, and we have plenty more ideas where these came from!


The Deckerdence is a beautiful adapted vintage double-decker that is available for parties and events with between 25 and 300 guests (with additional space provided in a marquee that encircles the bus). The lower deck is kitted out as a traditional bar serving draft ale, lager and cider through the side windows and the upper deck has been transformed into a glamorous oak-panelled cocktail lounge. While the bus is based in Warwickshire the central location makes it convenient for bookings right across the country.

Bateaux Windsor

The Bateaux Windsor is a restaurant on a boat that runs along a stretch of the Thames between Windsor and Maidenhead. In addition to a programme of scheduled trips (such as the Afternoon Tea cruise) the Bateaux Windsor is available to hire out for private events ranging from a private lunch to an evening stand-up reception. The length the trip varies according to the meal that is being served, with a three hour evening cruise giving you time for a Prosecco reception, a four course dinner and petit fours.

Events in the Sky

Events in the Sky is a company that does exactly what its name suggests, organising dining events at special ‘sky tables’ that are lifted 100 feet in the air by a mobile crane to give guests a thrilling gourmet experience. Up to 22 diners can be seated around the table for an event with the head chef, servers and sommelier stationed at a pop-up kitchen in the middle of the table. The tables themselves are purpose built to strict safety standards and all guests are fastened into their seats before the table is raised. Definitely an experience – but not for the faint hearted or altophobic!

Virgin Trains

Virgin is the only train company in the UK offering private carriage hire (as part of their exclusive Red Carpet package). The service is completely bespoke and offered on ‘anything’s possible’ terms, from the starting and finishing points to the level of catering and any onward-transport requirements such as a luxury coach or private limousine. A dedicated host will accompany guests on the trip to ensure every aspect of the day goes to plan, so all you have to do is sit back and enjoy the journey.
