The City of London is in many ways the hub of the capital’s business world, meaning it is rife with corporate venues. If, however, you want something a little more unique for your next presentation, we’ve got you covered with the following choices.
The Barbican is often considered to be the beating heart of the City of London, and it’s easy to understand why when you hear that it has no less than 19 different spaces to its name, hosting all manner of different events. With a vast capacity of more than 1900, it’s safe to say your options are well and truly open here. AIM Gold accredited and well-appointed with modern facilities and good acoustics, they are by now well versed in putting on a successful presentation.
Brand Exchange is housed within a Grade II listed building with charming architectural features. Tasteful and sensitive renovation means that the history and old-school elegance of the venue has been retained, with spaces on offer which include The Gallery, The Loft, The Orangery and The Members Lounge. AV equipment and onsite IT support will ensure the presentation can run without a hitch, whilst the choice of menus prepared using carefully selected caterers and suited to varying budgets will handle any refreshments.
Old Billingsgate is another offering with a selection of different spaces to choose from, including a suspended steel mezzanine level, the gallery area and a large vault space with interlinked arches, with hire options allowing for individual use or varying combinations of these spaces depending on your needs. The main Grand Hall boasts impressive features such as triple height ceilings and imposing iron pillars. Especially well-suited to large-scale presentations and events, the total capacity reaches a hefty 2500.
Though at first glance StolenSpace Gallery may seem like a fairly typical white gallery, exposed brick walls and raw concrete flooring give it that extra edge of character and an urban flavour that puts it bang on trend. Large windows let in plenty of natural light for a bright and airy feel, whilst the otherwise neutral finish leaves you the opportunity to kit the space out according to your own specifications. Aldgate East is the nearest transport link, reachable in just a few minutes.
The 2 adjoining spaces at 4th Floor Studios have a New York loft vibe that makes them feel welcoming and relaxed, with wooden flooring and white brick walls throughout. In addition, there is an outdoor bamboo rooftop which could serve as a lovely alternative breakaway space, as well as 2 kitchens and an editorial suite. The team are passionate about meeting each client’s needs and will work hard to do so, having become a popular choice for away days, workshops and other corporate gatherings.
