Due to open in January 2019, Illuminate will be a dedicated, purpose-built conference and events venue spread across the top two floors of the Science Museum. It will offer flexible contemporary spaces with state-of-the-art production and will be the only fully-dedicated events venue suitable for 400+ delegates in a London Museum. White Light has been appointed as Illuminate’s Production Partner, meaning the company will be tasked with designing, integrating and operating a world-class technical installation within the various spaces.
Ben Lheureux, Head of Catering and Events at the Science Museum Group, states: “We spent a great deal of time developing the identity of our new dedicated events space to ensure we created something that is not only synonymous with the Science Museum Group and our brand values, but that resonates with the forward-thinking events industry. It was therefore essential that we chose trusted partners to help enhance our clients’ experiences of Illuminate, WL gives us confidence they will provide the necessary expertise to deliver stand-out events in our new progressive space.”
WL’s Director Richard Wilson comments: “We are absolutely delighted to be involved in this exciting new chapter for the Science Museum. Working with Illuminate, clients will be able to draw on stunning spaces coupled with state-of-the-art technology; offering with an experience they wouldn’t receive elsewhere”.
