What is the difference between a day delegate rate and a 24 hour rate?

delegate rate and a 24 hour rate

The simple answer is the accommodation and dinner cost -
Hotels and venues will often offer an all inclusive 24 hour rate package for delegates, (sometimes this is based on minimum numbers). This is often a more cost effective option for the client.

A BASIC 24 hour rate package would include -

Overnight accommodation with English breakfast in single or double for single occupancy en suite rooms

Room Hire

2/3 servings of tea, coffee and biscuits or pastries


Still & Sparking water available all day

Flip Chart and pens


LCD/Projector - more often than not included in the price

Dinner in the Restaurant

The 24 hour rate is an inclusive price per delegate plus VAT

Some 24 hour rate packages will include complimentary WIFI, car parking and some AV equipment. Also free newspapers and complimentary health and leisure club membership where applicable. Ask your Conference Booking agent to negotiate the best possible 24 hour rate on your behalf dependant on the requirements. Rates are negotiable and it is often possible to include added benefits into the package price.
