Here are some of our top picks when it comes to the city’s best venues for holding a tech conference, each providing a winning combination of stylishness and convenience.
Mount Pleasant Studio is a designated film and television studio and as such, is more than equipped to accommodate the necessary equipment for a professional tech based event. With several different spaces at your disposal and a good maximum capacity on offer, it’s an up-and-running venue complete with modern amenities yet characterful touches. Well served by its close proximity to local transport links, both Farringdon and Chancery Lane stations can be reached in less than ten minutes.
Just a short walk from Oxford Street and Tottenham Court Road tube station, Congress Centre is well situated within Central London. The building itself is renowned for its modernist architecture, and this contemporary vibe is carried on throughout the 16 spaces within the interior, with an impressive range of in-house audio-visual gear available for use, including giant plasma screens and HD equipment. As a handy bonus, great food is also on offer should you wish to organise catering for your guests.
As one of the city’s newest corporate venues, 110 Rochester Row offers accessible, flexible meeting spaces complete with intuitive technology for ease-of-use, available at competitive prices. This, as well as their good environmental policy, reflect their charitable status, being governed by the UK’s official representative body for finance staff within the NHS and healthcare system. Enquiries are always welcome at this 200-capacity venue, which sits within easy reach of the likes of Victoria Lane and Gatwick Express stations.
A co-working space designed with creative start-ups and budding entrepreneurs in mind, Interchange Triangle is one of the successful creations of the much-celebrated Tom Dixon. Visually striking, it has a distinctly modern feel throughout in terms of layout and décor, whilst the full-length windows flood the main space with an abundance of natural light and provide views out onto the city below. Camden Town is the nearest rail link at just four minutes away on foot.
Found in London’s Docklands area, Off Quay boasts 8000 square feet of multi-purpose event space, allowing for a total capacity of up to 500. Alongside the generous open-plan main space are a photography studio, rehearsal rooms, a screening room and a café area, and these can either be hired out individually as needed or combined for events that are larger in scale. A technical hire/AV company operate onsite for added convenience when it comes to acquiring the necessary kit for your conference.
