5 unique reasons to visit Stand K506

Wednesday, June 1, 2016 - 10:45

From 14 – 16 June we’re exhibiting at the Meetings Show 2016, a great opportunity for event professionals to come and find out more about the 83 iconic, landmark and unusual venues which make up our membership. Here are our five best reasons to visit stand K506 in just over a week’s time:

Bursting with variety

From the regal grandeur of a Stuart Palace to the modern, urban cool of a modernist theatre, Unique Venues of London is bursting with variety and character. Whether it be a banquet amongst the fascinating collections of Leighton House Museum and the Sir John Soane’s Museum to a reception in the vaults of St. Martin-in-the-Fields or under the hull of Cutty Sark.

Grounds for celebration

As the summer sun starts to shine on London, gardens across the capital burst into blossom. Amongst our membership, we have an abundance of verdant spaces, offering plenty of inspiration for outdoor celebrations. From the fine topiary of Hampton Court Palace and the expansive, manicured parklands of Syon Park and Chiswick House and Gardens, to the more intimate courtyard of Gibson Hall and rugged, natural beauty of London Wetland Centre there’s no shortage of greenery to in which to enjoy events al fresco.

Steeped in history

If the walls of our venues could talk, you would have a pretty comprehensive history of London over the last 500 years. The who’s who of famous faces who have, over the years occupied, performed and entertained within the walls of our membership is innumerable. It’s quite something to be able to mention Winston Churchill (Harrow School), the Duke of Wellington (Wellington Arch) and Benjamin Franklin (Benjamin Franklin House) in the same sentence – not to mention the hundreds of heroes, villains and saints to be found at Madame Tussauds!

Always adding value

Aside from a wealth of venues which can cater to different requirements, many offer unusual and intriguing ‘added-value’ elements to their events within the building or in the immediate vicinity. This could be a backstage tour or a private viewing of a world-famous art collection. Certainly, there is plenty of inspiration for post-event hospitality with a wealth of entertainment that can be booked with ease.

World-class performance

London has maintained its position as one of the world’s hospitality hubs because of its business and travel infrastructure, but also on account of the wealth of heritage and cultural institutions and landmarks based here. The city’s sheer diversity means you can host a stand-out event offering not just what visitors would term a ‘uniquely British experience’, but something which embraces the rest of the world too. Think of the outstanding venues that house show-stopping exhibitions which feature artefacts from around the ancient and modern world.
