Since London is the centre of business and banking in the UK, as well as a cultural hotspot, it makes sense that it is also one of the most sought after conference locations in the country.
The capital has a host of fantastic and innovative conference venues to choose from, with spaces that you can use to host everything from your company annual general meeting (AGM) to awards ceremonies that highlight some of the most successful companies in the Thames Valley region.
So, if you are thinking of holding a conference in London, here is our guide to some of the best business conferencing locations in London.
An industry-leading tech hub, Rocketspace is the ideal place to hold a conference if you are a tech company or tech startup. The venue is specifically designed to cater to tech conferences and offers multi-purpose conference rooms, an event theatre that can comfortably hold 100 guests and has projection and audio-visual capabilities, an outdoor relaxation space, and even a fully catered food and drinks service.
One of the benefits of conferencing in London is that, once all the business of the day is out of the way, you can always find something exciting to do in the evening. From Rocketspace, for instance, it’s only a short journey to the swanky Ritz Club Casino for a few spins on the slot machines, or the Dover Wine Bar for some classy cocktails.
If you need to practice your slot machine strategy before you play in front of your workmates, you can always prepare with a few free spins online.
