26 Apr Conference venues to watch out for in 2019
At Purple Patch all have our favourite venues that we love working with – and sometimes its easy to keep returning to them, not out of laziness but because they are prove winners.
However, each year a new set of venues pop up that keep the choices fresh for our clients. Some brand new and some refurbishe. Staying on top of new conference venues is essential so that we can offer our clients a refreshing new location that their customers or teams won’t have visited before.
In 2018 the new openings were the Kensington Palace Pavilion, Kettners Town House, Glazier’s Hall with two new river side rooms and The Deck at the National. Outside of London were Hall 1 at Farnborough and Warren House in Surrey. Three venues that will be on our radar for 2019 are…
Location: Greenwick Peninsular
Transport links: Right next to the 02 arena
Capacity: Multiple spaces up to 3,000 delegates
Extras: Panoramic views of Canary Wharf
Looking forward to: A brand new venue in the East of the City. A challenger to the Excel Centre. The venue which opens in September 2019 can either be booked as a blank canvas – or with full-blown production supplied
Savill Court Hotel
Transport links: Good for the M3, M25 and the M4 and of course Heathrow
Capacity: Around 500 in the new ballroom
Extras: The refurbishments take the bedroom capacity to a fantastic 257.
Looking forward to: We have missed the ease of Savill Court, close to London but remote enough for great conferences away from the bustle of the City. The increased capacity and bedrooms will make it a great choice of venue
Location: Levels 4 & 5 of The Science Museum
Transport links: Perfect for a central London venue
Capacity: 400 for dinners & conferences
Extras: Loads of natural daylight and a stunning view across the City
Why we like it: Its brand new – and uniquely can now be booked for both daytime and evening events
