If you are searching for the perfect large venue to host your conference then the following selection could be just what you need.
Gracepoint is a very unique venue found in the popular area of Islington. Grade II listed, the interior is complete in an Art Deco style, blended with an Egyptian theme and dressed in multi-coloured Hathernware tiles that immediately bring the wow factor. This unusual combination of styles makes for a backdrop like no other; one that is sure to impress. As for the capacity, the generous theatre can hold up to 940 guests. It is also easy to reach from the rest of London and beyond, with Essex Road train station and Angel tube station both comfortably reached on foot.
Found in the heart of Canary Wharf, just a few minutes from the tube station of the same name, you will find East Wintergarden, a stylish and highly contemporary venue. The main floor is distinguished first and foremost by its 27 metre high domed glass ceiling, which not only makes a fantastic feature in its own right but serves to fill the space with an abundance of natural light. Above this floor there is a gallery which can be hired separately as well as the Promenade Room, perfect for meetings and such forth. Altogether, the maximum capacity reaches 1250.
The Troxy first opened its doors in the 1930s as a grand cinema complete in the Art Deco style still popular at the time. Now Grade II listed, many of the original features have been retained, perfectly encapsulating the glamour of this former era and making for a wonderful backdrop for several different event types. With a good capacity of around 2000, the building has also been sensitively modernised to include all the necessary facilities one would expect in an event space, including a high quality PA and lighting system, and air conditioning, making this a practical choice as well as a pretty one.
Also with a capacity coming in at just under 2000 is The Barbican, Europe’s largest – and arguably best – multi-arts and conference venues. Specialising in events surrounding art, theatre and music, it has well planned seating and excellent acoustics, ideal for ensuring that everyone can both see and hear crystal clear once the conference is underway. The building itself sits amongst a wide selection of both rail and underground transport links, including Barbican, Moorgate, Old Street and London Liverpool Street, making it easily reached for those who need to commute.
