East London has a reputation for being one of the trendiest parts of the capital and that means it has more than its fair share of cool venues on offer, ideal for injecting an extra bit of fun and interest to the likes of a conference.
Square Suite is a multi-purpose, blank canvas space that is ideal for those who want the creative freedom to put their own spin on the look and feel of their event. There are 2 main rooms to choose from, one of which is used for events and enterprise and the other for photography and media. The venue itself can be found right on the border between London and Essex in the South Woodford area, just 15 minutes from the station of the same name.
On the 7th floor of Ace Hotel London Shoreditch you will find 6000 square feet of rooftop-level event space, split into 6 separate areas for maximum flexibility. Large windows flood the interior with natural light and allow you to soak up the wonderful cinematic views of the city’s iconic skyline, but there is also outdoor terrace space should you want to really make the most of it. Slick and contemporary in design, the spaces can hold a combined total of around 400 people.
The London Stadium is found within Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, having formerly been used for the 2012 London Olympic Games. The modern and stylishly designed spaces are now used for all manner of different events, both private and corporate alike, from product launches to prom parties, and from team-building days to wedding receptions, giving you a clear indication as to just how flexible an offering it is. Good nearby rail links include Stratford, Pudding Mill Lane and Hackney Wick.
Tobacco Dock is a community-based hub for expos and live events that can trace its industrial heritage and entrepreneurialism all the way back to 1811. In a nod to this rich past, the venue has a raw, stripped back feel, benefitting from vast open-plan spaces and striking architectural detail throughout, with an impressive total capacity of 8000 in all. The venue was in fact recently named London’s Best Awards Venue by the Global Conference Network in recognition of their quality service.
Rich Mix is an independent arts venue that boasts 3 boutique cinemas and 3 blank canvas event spaces, as well as an additional mezzanine and an outdoor area, meaning you’d be well and truly spoilt for choice when it comes to utilising the space. Bespoke theming and delicious menus are available upon request, with the team more than happy to adapt the space to suit your event’s particular needs. Better still, all profits go towards their work as an arts charity, so it really is win-win.
