How to hire a corporate venue in London

We know that finding a venue the old-fashioned way (where you trawl the internet, contact 10 venues or set your heart on one, only to find that they're out of your price range and not even available on your dates) is a pain, and there are a few pitfalls between you and booking your perfect corporate event venue. Getting the venue finding process down to a professional art is what we’ve made our mission ever since we took on the events industry. We often get asked the same questions, so here's what we recommend to quickly and easily hire a space in London.

Frequently asked questions

For corporate event venues in London, you're spoilt for choice. Here's an extra special one that we vouch for:

Landmark - 99 Bishopsgate – With terrace views, excellent transport links and modern interiors, corporate events just got a little more interesting.

There really is no one answer to this question: so many variables come into play when understanding the cost of hiring a venue for a corporate event. Corporate venues will be well-appointed so will include facilities, but some things cost extra. It all depends on how many guests are you planning for. Is the venue for the day, an afternoon or an evening? Are you looking for catering? What about decorations? The good news is that you can find a corporate venue for pretty much any budget (okay, almost any budget). Instead of letting the venue dictate the price, our advice is to be proactive and set a budget that you feel comfortable with – this way the right venues can reach out to you through HeadBox.

There are lots of ways to book a London corporate event venue. You can do the old-fashioned thing and pick up the phone, or email the venue directly. Unfortunately, lots of venues are busy and may not get back to you in time. That's where we come in. Give us your enquiry and we'll reach out to the best corporate event venues in London and let you enjoy your free time. Easy.
