London is a hive of business activity and as such, has many great venues on offer when it comes to holding a conference. Here is a rundown of some of the top choices out there should you find yourself in need of one.
Found in London’s popular area of Islington, Gracepoint is a Grade II listed building with a wonderfully unique interior that fuses Art Deco styling with an Egyptian theme, complete with multi-coloured tiles and several tasteful ornamental touches. The facilities are of the highest modern standards, hence their success in hosting many different styles of business related events, including conferences. With Angel tube station a little over 10 minutes away and Essex Road train station a mere 2 minutes away, your attendees should be able to reach you with ease.
ME London offers all the convenience of a contemporary hotel, with a dedicated service team at your disposal to ensure proceedings can run without a hitch. There are 7 rooms available here in all, each one fully equipped and highly versatile in use, having been specifically designed as a multi-purpose event space that can hold up to a total of 300 guests per event. It is also excellently connected to the rest of the city, with a generous 4 tube stations all 10 minutes or less away on foot, including Charing Cross and Covent Garden.
The Faber Creative Spaces are comprised of two separate venues, both tucked away in the eaves of a historical Grade II listed building in Bloomsbury, at the very heart of the city. Both have a bright, airy and fresh atmosphere and are finished off with a simple, modern touch that makes them excellent for a professional gathering. This also fits in nicely with the discerning reputation of Faber & Faber, the leading publishing house that has brought us works from the likes of T.S. Eliot, Kazuo Ishiguro and Samuel Beckett. The capacity is just 80, making it a good choice for a more low-key or inclusive meeting.
Generator is a truly unique venue with a real all-in-one feel. There are all sorts of different spaces here, making it a widely versatile and interesting choice, not least of all for its quirky décor, including the life-size London bus found in the bar. Exposed brickwork and reclaimed timbers grant the interior a sense of history that is nicely offset by the striking visuals and installations displayed here regularly. There are a plethora of options at your disposal when it comes to transport links in the immediate vicinity, be it underground, overground or train stations, once again ensuring your guests can reach the conference no matter how far they have to travel.
VANILLA is another adaptable venue that works excellently as the setting for a formal conference, with top notch audio-visual equipment and lighting onsite for your convenience. In fact, the actual layout and furniture can be changed, depending on your conferences particular needs. The maximum capacity for events held here is 150, meaning it suits slightly larger gatherings, while the luxurious and modern feel of the interior design is sure to please your guests and set the tone for a successful occasion. Once again, it also benefits from the proximity of several handy tube stations.
