NH Conference Center
Located right off Interstate 95 at Exit #1 in Seabrook, NH, the Hampshire Inn and Conference Center is an ideal location for business meetings and large gatherings. With over 3,500 square feet of meeting space in four different conference rooms, the Hampshire Inn and Conference Center has hosted many different businesses and groups. Businesses such as Wal-mart, Sam's Club, Kohl's, and Sullivan Tire have used the largest of the conference rooms, called the Congressional Room. At 2,000 square foot, this room holds as many as 175 people in theater-style seating or 100 people behind a table in a classroom setup.
The location of the Conference Center has helped retail organizations due to the easy access to the highway. Businesses that have associates traveling from Maine to Massachusetts have found the central location beneficial for everyone's time. In addition, businesses have appreciated the added value of being able to keep their associates off the slower local roads in New England. With the easy on-and-off access to the high-speed roads, they avoid coastal beach traffic and local roads. Plus, with its location so close to the highway, the NH Conference Center almost eliminates "I got lost" as an excuse for being late to a meeting.
Businesses also take advantage of the fact that some of their trainers and teachers come from corporate locations outside of New England. The Hampshire Inn & Conference Center is located less than an hour drive from three major New England airports: Logan International Airport in Boston; Manchester-Boston Regional Airport in Manchester, New Hampshire; and Portland International Jetport in Portland, Maine. The ease of multiple choices for airports helps businesses to schedule a convenient flight for the long-distance traveler. When the trainer is able to spend the night at the same location where they are teaching, their time is spent more efficiently preparing for the class rather than traveling.
Groups have also taken advantage of the multiple meeting rooms in the conference center for breakout sessions or smaller focused gatherings within the larger meeting. Sessions can start in the Congressional Room (2,000 square feet and up to 175 people in theater-style seating), then divide into smaller rooms such as the Senate Room (750 square feet), or the Caucus Room (330 square feet) for more intimate meetings. The Senate Room holds 60 people comfortably in theater style. The Caucus Room holds 25 people comfortably in theater style or 18 people around a boardroom table setup. The flexibility of the NH Conference Center at the Hampshire Inn helps organizations plan a productive meeting with the possibilities of rotating people to different classrooms or dividing a large group into different locations, all a short walk within the conference center building.
After the meeting is over the NH Conference Center enables the participants to enjoy the Seacoast with its many different activities all year round. From the Atlantic Ocean just 10 minutes to the east to numerous restaurants within a five-minute drive, the choices of entertainment to relax the business traveler are plentiful.
