The 2019 awards, held on Thursday 24 October at Aston Marina, recognised regional businesses who gave visitors to Staffordshire an amazing and unforgettable experience.
The milestone award comes just a week after the venue celebrated its first birthday. In the year since its opening, the Arboretum team have welcomed thousands of guests to enjoy the flexible, state-of-the-art facilities Aspects offers for between five and 500 people.
With stunning views and the opportunity to explore the Arboretum, a nationally important site home to over 30,000 trees and 380 memorials, that remembers ordinary people; their remarkable stories, battles fought, sacrifices made, struggles endured and victories won, Aspects provides a unique experience; delivering events that matter in a place that matters.
Aspects is central to the Arboretum’s plans for financial sustainability, helping to ensure that the 150-acre site can remain free-to-enter. The construction of Aspects was made possible with generous funding from The Royal British Legion, the Chancellor using LIBOR funds, the Greater Birmingham and Solihull Local Enterprise Partnership, The Veolia Environmental Trust and Landfill Communities Fund.
