1. A former chocolate factory turned stylishly unique conference centre: The Menier Lounge
If there was ever an ideal creative space for a conference, Menier Lounge would be it. Situated on Southwark Street, the former chocolate factory turned venue has been host to shoots, product launches and, you guessed it, conferences.
Head to the first floor and be welcomed by the plush velvet sofas, plants, exposed brick walls, wood floors, large windows and a private garden. With space for up to 55 guests, it’s one for smaller conferences and networking events.
Catering options are available, although they’re just a walk away from London Bridge favourites like Borough Market, Flat Iron and The Breakfast Club, so it’s really your call.
2. A unique conference centre at the world’s only branding museum: Conference Space, Museum of Brands
Branding, design, packaging, advertising, strategy. Where better to tap into creative and collaborative energy than at the home documenting some of the world’s best, and most iconic brands?
The West London venue offers a unique conferencing space, complete with astroturf, floor-to-ceiling windows and prints of brands like Marmite.
Unlike Marmite, this conferencing space isn’t polarising as it can be adapted to suit your needs, and up to 100 attendees.
You can find this space on Lancaster Road.
3. A quirky conference centre: Auditorium, Huckletree West
Like a quick burst of energy on a dull day, Huckletree West’s Auditorium is not your average conference space. With cool graphics along the wall, tiered seating and a bar area, it’s certainly a casual but inspiring place to host a conference.
Stay on top of it all and keep your audience engaged with full use of the venue’s AV equipment. Then head over to the bar for drinks after.
This unique conference centre has space for 200 standing attendees and 125 seated attendees, and is minutes away from White City station.
4. A unique conference centre at the home of ping pong: Conferencing space, Bounce Farringdon
Fun and function come together at this unique conference centre. Offering a conference space for up to 400 guests, Bounce Farringdon is not without its own spot of history. Billed as the place where the very first game of ping pong was played, it’s also the original Bounce venue.
Host your attendees with the help of a TV, projector, microphone and activity tables (for any scheduled breakout sessions) and relax knowing that this space is fully adaptable, so you can arrange it as much as you’d like.
As it’s close to Chancery Lane and Farringdon station, it’s a convenient choice for city attendees and out-of-towners alike.
5. A groovy unique conference centre: The Auditorium, Second Home Spitalfields
Yellow curtains and a yellow floor. This isn’t Oz, this is Second Home Spitalfields Auditorium space. The East London co-working space offers a bright solution for talks, workshops and mid-sized conferences (with up to 250 guests).
It’s available to hire between Tuesday – Sunday and comes fully equipped with everything you’ll need for a successful conference.
Whether it’s a second home or not is your call, but it is a great first choice for any future creative conferences. It’s time to pull the curtain back on your next great conference.
