Finding the Right Sized Venue for your Conference in London
Conferences are not limited to the large-scale, heavily sponsored events as some may think. They can be of any size, but smaller conferences that are held in-house are usually just called meetings. Nevertheless, regardless of the size of the congregation, London has a conference location to suit your company’s needs.
While it would be ideal to hold all meetings in-house, many working offices may be too small, crowded or disconnected to be realistic conference locations. You may need to accommodate larger clients or perhaps other industry professionals who you need to impress. Luckily, here at Melon, we have several solutions for conferences of any size or technical requirements.
Located on bustling Old Street, The Trampery can offer the ideal solution to a tech-heavy small conference. Boasting a 500Mbps Wi-Fi connection couple with 50” Plasma screens, the Tannery’s A/V ready meeting rooms can seat anywhere from 6, 14, or 35 people. They also offer catering for breakfast and lunch, given they receive 24 hours’ notice.
Your corporate conference will roll on without a hitch and will be sure to keep your guests engaged, and the location means it is perfect for a bit of networking at some of the City’s best bars and restaurants around Old Street and Shoreditch.
Another conference option in bustling Shoreditch is Nobu Hotel – a small, but luxurious boardroom. Seating just 10 people this would be the ideal setting for a small, but significant conference where impressing and pampering your visitors is key.
The hotel itself features a minimalist approach to classic Japanese architecture, juxtaposing layered glass and reflective facades with warm wood hues.
58 Victoria Embankment
One of the most accessible conference venues in London, 58VE provides for up to 180 people in its theatre-style room. Boasting cutting-edge technology for not only broadcasting your conference to other locations, but also to allow smaller workshops to operate in full climate controlled spaces. Sweaty presenters become a thing of the past in this state-of-the-art conference venue. If tech isn’t your biggest concern 58VE can give you naturally lit workspaces, with views of the river Thames and the surrounding waterfront.
For those who find AV to be superfluous there is the Freemason’s Hall. Built between 1927 and 1932 it is one of the prime examples of Art Deco in the U.K. It also hosts the London Fashion show annually and is one of London’s top 10 film locations, most recently to the new Assassin’s Creed blockbuster. The Freemason’s Hall is iconic, impressive, and can accommodate up to 1000 people for any large-scale convention.
Regardless of the size or content of your event, there is a location out there for you. London is an enormous city brimming with ideal event venues, but they are often hard to track down.
