Five points to consider when choosing your next conference venue

1. What capacity do you need?

Check the capacity of your venue to make sure it’s suitable for the type of conference you’re planning. For example, it won’t be possible to accommodate as many guests for a seated dinner compared to a standing reception.

If you’re planning to hire a venue in the summer, choosing a venue with indoor and outdoor areas will give your guests more space to mingle during the reception. In fact, some of our conference venues in London also have luxury marquees so you can weather-proof your event in case it rains.

2. What are the transport facilities like?

To attract the maximum number of guests, it’s important to choose a conference venue with easy access to public transport facilities. For example, luxury London conference venues like Old Billingsgate and Austin Friars offer convenient access to the tube and rail network and are within walking distance of many legal and financial firms in the City.


3. What’s your budget?

Once you’ve found the perfect conference venues in London, you need to make sure they’re within your budget. However, even if the total price is a little higher than your budget, it’s always worth negotiating to see if you can get a lower price.


4. What are the catering options?

Make the best impression by giving your guests a superb culinary experience that they will remember for years to come.

Create, our catering partner, specialises in ‘best of British’ cuisine that is bespoke to each client. It has served clients in luxury London venues for more than 30 years and was proud to be crowned Caterer of the Year at The Event Awards 2017.


5. Does the venue have the right facilities?

There’s nothing worse than technical difficulties ruining your conference, whether it’s poor sound or dim lighting. That’s why it’s important to have a professional production team who can ensure everything runs smoothly from start to finish. Make the right impact by choosing a venue with state-of-the-art lighting, sound and technology.
