Banqueting house conference london 3

22. A royal London conference venue: The Banqueting House


Magnificent. That’s how London conferencing venue The Banqueting House describes its space, and we couldn’t agree more. Originally opened in 1622, Banqueting House in Whitehall, Southwest London, is the last remnant of Whitehall Palace, which was destroyed during a fire in 1698. It is home to Ruben’s ceiling (if you’ve never heard of this before: it’s a massive oil painting that showcases the glory of the Stuart monarchs who lived in the palace), and the place where Charles I was executed.

What’s even more magnificent is that while Banqueting House is currently closed to the public, it is open for hire as one of London’s conference venues. We can’t think of a better conference space than a huge ballroom that lets you sit on polished floors underneath grandiose chandeliers and a world-famous painting in a room, where literal royals have celebrated and banqueted in. Do we need to say more?

If for some reason, this did not convince you, there are also subtler rooms available for hire, this London conference venue, such as the Undercroft, which is perfect if you are planning for standing drinks receptions (up to 380 people).

De Vere Grand Connaught Rooms London conference 1
De Vere Grand Connaught Rooms London conference 2

23. London's elegant conference space: De Vere Grand Connaught Rooms


Another London conference venue with great history is De Vere Grand Connaught Rooms, 5 minutes from Covent Garden, which dates to 1775 and used to house the Freemason’s Tavern. Since 1909 it has served as a hotel and with 37 conference rooms for hire, it is no surprise that politicians, royals, and celebrities have all made use of the spaces before.

All rooms feature the original Georgian architecture, with some rooms more grandiose than others (though none would be an underwhelming London conference venue). For large conferences we recommend the Grand Hall, which can host up to 750 seated guests or 1,500 standing for a drinks reception. As the name already says, the Grand Hall is not just a large space, but also the most grandiose one available with ornate ceilings, wood panelling and chandeliers.

If you are looking for smaller spaces, there are several executive rooms available, as well as modern training rooms and a roof terrace, which will guarantee stunning views over the heart of London.

Make no mistake, while this is a historic place, De Vere Grand Connaught Rooms is equipped highly modern and provides you with free and fast Wi-Fi.

Curzon soho conference 1

24. For a cinematic London conference: Curzon Soho


Few spaces are more perfectly attuned to the enrapturing process than a cinema. A big screen, powerful seaters, terraced chairs that make exiting an exercise in acute social embarrassment: a perfect trap. Conferences, then, are perfectly suited to the home of the big screens.

Curzon's Soho outpost is a legendary arthouse venue on Shaftesbury Avenue. The 249-capacity main screen is plushly fitted for the ultimate in comfortable viewing. Combine this with Curzon's excellent bar facilities and central location, and you're sure to impress your lucky attendees.

ExCel centre conference London 1
ExCel centre conference London 2

26. The big one: ExCel Centre


So, tucked away on the old docklands of London's borough of Newham is a little-known conference space called the ExCel centre.

Okay, so this choice might be a bit obvious, but the sheer size of the ExCel centre earns it a place on any London conference ranking list. The Event halls, in particular, are column-free spaces that can accommodate a whopping 65,000 attendees. That means you could fit all the good people of Margate into your London conference, if that's your thing.

Moveable walls make for easily partitionable spaces, whilst adjustable LED ceiling lights and 40 gallery rooms give you the facilities to make your conference truly bespoke. All you if have to do is try not to get lost in the 87,328m² space.

Your guide to London’s conference venues

When it comes to events, a conference is just about as big as it gets. For any kind of conference you may be planning, you’re going to want to make sure you get as many registrants as possible and that each of them leaves the conference feeling like they’ve gained something. The right venue is absolutely key to achieving this goal. Luckily, London is host to a fantastic range of conference venues from huge expo centres to smaller lecture theatres. We’ve worked with the very best and would love to share our expertise with you. Let’s get planning.

Planning is everything

With conferencing, you’re going to want to make sure the venue has everything you could possibly need, covered. This is not an event you’ll want to wing it on, so make sure you check for the following facilities:

  • Audiovisual equipment - a standard for any conference, the venue should have high-quality audio equipment so that every word of your speakers can be heard

  • Hybrid capability - conferences can now reach those in the room and at home – planning a hybrid event requires some extra steps but we can help with that

  • Book your keynote speakers - it’s the reason people attend so get a good programme of speakers for your perfect conference and make sure to plan the timings carefully

Know where your conference will be

London is an urban, sprawling city and there’s a lot of choices when it comes to where your conference venue will be. There are a few key things to consider when deciding on a location: Where are most of the attendees coming from? If you’re expecting an international crowd you’ll want to get the venue space as close to an airport as possible or ensure that the conference venue is well-connected in terms of public transport. Will you need parking? London can be quite tricky to find large parking spaces in – if you know lots of your attendees will be driving to the conference you’ll find more luck going outside the city centre.

Accessible conference spaces?

Nobody wants to be left out of your big conferencing event. Check that the venue has disabled access and, if you’re considering catering, check they can accommodate a range of dietary preferences. Good planning is empathetic planning.

Make sure you set the agenda

This is your conference event – you should set the criteria for the venues to meet. Want an outside area? Natural light flooding the room? Have a preference on seating style? Tell us exactly what conferencing experience you want, where you want it, and when you want it. We’ll do the rest.

Planning and booking a conference in London can be an exciting and rewarding experience, but it can also be overwhelming if you don't know where to start. In this guide, we will provide you with some tips and steps to follow to ensure that your conference planning and booking experience in London is smooth and successful.

Step 1: Define your conference objectives and budget Before you start planning, you need to define your conference objectives and budget. Ask yourself, what do you want to achieve with your conference? What is your target audience? What is your budget? Knowing your objectives and budget will help you make better decisions when it comes to choosing the venue, the catering, and the conference program.

Step 2: Choose a venue Once you have defined your conference objectives and budget, you need to choose a venue. London has plenty of venues that cater to conferences of all sizes and budgets, so you need to do some research and choose the one that best suits your needs. Look for venues that have good transport links, are centrally located, and have good facilities. Also, consider the number of attendees you expect and whether the venue can accommodate them.

Step 3: Plan your conference program The conference program is the heart of your conference, so you need to plan it carefully. Start by deciding on the keynote speakers, the workshops, and the panel discussions. Then, create a schedule that allows enough time for networking, breaks, and lunch. Make sure that your program is relevant to your target audience and that it addresses your conference objectives.

Step 4: Arrange catering Catering is an essential aspect of your conference, so you need to choose a catering company that can provide quality food and beverages that cater to different dietary requirements. Many venues have their own catering services, but you can also hire an external catering company.

Step 5: Promote your conference To attract attendees to your conference, you need to promote it. Use social media, email, and advertising to spread the word about your conference. You can also reach out to influencers and industry leaders to help you promote your event.

Step 6: Book accommodation If your attendees are coming from out of town, you need to arrange accommodation for them. Look for hotels that are close to the conference venue and offer discounted rates for conference attendees.

Step 7: Plan transportation London has an extensive transportation network, so you need to plan how your attendees will get to and from the conference venue. Provide them with information about the best routes, public transport options, and parking facilities.

Step 8: Hire staff To ensure that your conference runs smoothly, you need to hire staff to help you with registration, catering, and logistics. Look for experienced staff who can handle different tasks and can help you deal with any unforeseen issues that may arise.

Step 9: Evaluate your conference After your conference is over, evaluate its success by gathering feedback from attendees and reviewing your conference objectives. Use this feedback to improve your next conference and make it even better.

In conclusion, planning and booking a conference in London can be a daunting task, but by following these steps, you can ensure that your conference is a success. Remember to define your objectives and budget, choose a venue, plan your conference program, arrange catering, promote your conference, book accommodation, plan transportation, hire staff, and evaluate your conference. Good luck!
