London is very much the hub of the British business scene. As such, there are a whole host of venues to choose from when it comes to holding a conference. Here is a selection of some of the cream of the crop to help you on your way.
As the name might suggest, BAFTA 195 Piccadilly is the headquarters of the iconic British Academy of Film and Television Arts. That means this building has rich connections to the creative world but their wonderful corporate facilities, cutting-edge technology and equipment, and top notch rate of service mean they also offer a whole range of options when it comes to organising a conference. With both Green Park and Piccadilly Circus tube stations within an easy 5 minute walk, attendees should be able to reach the event from across the city with ease.
If you want a blank canvas so that you can dress the space to suit your own specifications then Olympia West could be just what you need. The award winning team here have helped to orchestrate events for many illustrious organisations, including Jaguar, Samsung and Victoria’s Secret, amongst many others. If joining this impressive list appeals to you, then you could hold your conference in this impressively huge venue that can hold up to a mammoth 2500 guests. As for nearby transport links, Kensington tube station is a mere stone’s throw away.
Speaking of transport links, few venues can rival the brilliant location of ME London, which has no less than 4 tube stations all reached within 10 minutes on foot, including Covent Garden and Charing Cross, meaning guests will easily be able to travel from throughout London. The venue itself has 7 rooms at your disposal, suitable for gatherings of any size; from 8 to 300 guests. These spaces were purposely built to be as convenient and adaptable as possible, coming complete with all the mod-cons and assistance that you would expect from a luxury hotel.
Just because you are gathering for business, doesn’t mean there isn’t room to bring a bit of grandeur and glamour to proceedings. This stunning, spacious Art Deco building’s most striking feature is undoubtedly the imposing marble columns that frame the huge space, immediately granting any event held here a real sense of drama and importance. The maximum capacity is a generous 800 and Bank tube station is a mere 2 minutes away, meaning that for all its beauty, it remains an equally practical venue for holding a conference.
RIBA venues is a brilliantly flexible option with several different spaces available for use at a whole range of different business related occasions. There are 3 roof terraces to be found here, perfect if you want to get your guests out into the fresh air and create a much less formal feeling, but even while inside, the huge windows guarantee plenty of natural light regardless. Couple this with the modern finishes and you have a highly professional venue perfect for impressing colleagues. Speaking of whom; your 400 guests will be able to utilise the 3 easily reached tube stations should they require them.
