Update: WinMock at Kinderton ~ Transformation Underway!

One year ago this week we published a story announcing the fabulous future for the stunning 17,000 square foot barn which was part of WinMock Farm in Davie County.  The owner and developer of this historic Davie County landmark, Sterling Events, is certainly putting its decades of corporate event planning experience to good use as the transformation of this 17,000 foot landmark into a world-class event center begins to take shape.

New Event Center Developed “for” Event Planners “by” Event Planners
Building off their own experiences in the industry, Sterling Events Group, celebrating 25 years in business this year, has made the needs of today’s corporate event planner a top priority in the design of  their new special events center, WinMock at Kinderton.

Some of the identified needs have included more cost effective catering options, plentiful lighting configurations, flexible space and affordable rates per head, and all have been addressed in the planning of the new Triad special events center.

“We have found ourselves saying wouldn’t it be great if a venue had this or that while we have been on the road with our clients’ events,” commented Wayne Thomas, president of Sterling Events Group.  “When we made the decision to push ahead with this project we collectively built a wish list around those comments in an effort to create an ideal venue for planners just like us.”

Meeting Planners Open House Gives Corporate Event Planners a Voice

To further enhance the space for local planners, Sterling Events Group recently hosted a Meeting Planners Open House at the barn where guests could share their own thoughts and wish lists with Sterling staff and WinMock Managing Director, Tabatha Renegar.  The well-attended event included a tour of the property with an extensive look into the plans for the space as well as a catered lunch from Savory Spoon hosted in the barn’s future Forsyth Dining Room.

Renegar shared that “it was such a great opportunity to really pick their brains and find out what they feel has been missing in our area.  We understand the complexities involved in executing an event.  It’s not easy and we’re thrilled to be able to offer such a unique, accessible space for their future use.  We hope to see them back next year with a planned event of their own!”

The planned special events center, WinMock at Kinderton, is housed in a historic 17,000+ square foot barn and will include two outdoor terraces, two private dining rooms, multiple meetings rooms and an upstairs Loft ballroom.  The property is currently under renovation and is set to open June, 2011.  Advance bookings are available.  Contact Tabatha Renegar at 336.397.2012 or visit www.winmock.com for more information.
