London and Partners, the Mayor of London’s promotional agency, reports that the capital’s reputation as the number one choice for UK events and meetings has been boosted by a number of recent venue openings and upcoming large-scale regeneration projects to suit all tastes and event concepts.
Those looking for something with a royal touch can now host events at the recently opened Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Galleries at Westminster Abbey and The Painted Hall, Greenwich, which recently reopened after a two-year conservation project.
For more modern tastes, the newly built Tottenham Hotspur FC sports stadium that is also home to NFL in the UK, offers a unique 1,500 capacity event space overlooking the pitch.
Offering an urban-edge, London’s iconic Battersea Power Station is undergoing a major innovation project that will see new event space and the city’s first Art’otel open by 2022. Work will also begin next year on the £1bn project to turn Olympia London into a world-leading cultural hub, featuring two hotels and major upgrades to existing event spaces.
The Madison Square Garden Company has also announced plans to build a state-of-the-art entertainment venue in Stratford next to the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. The early plans for the venue feature the world’s largest and highest LED screen and high-speed wireless connectivity.
