84 reasons to visit Confex

Thursday, February 23, 2017 - 09:30

On 1st -2nd March 2017 we will once again be exhibiting our fantastic member venues on stand C30C at International Confex.

To showcase the breadth, depth and originality of our association, here are just a few of the unique categories that make up the Unique Venues of London consortium

Contemporary cool

London as a city has a future that is just as rich as its historic past with some of the world’s greatest thinkers, performers and creators calling the capital home. As such the city has a plethora of future friendly spaces that have skyrocketed themselves into the category of modern masterpieces. From the Olympic legacy left in the form of the ArcelorMittal Orbit, to the home of Britain’s largest cinema screen BFI IMAX, the city is not short of distinctive spaces. Standing proudly at 135m, Coca-Cola London Eye is another visually dramatic addition to London’s skyline that is so iconic, it’s hard to believe it was launched just 17 years ago in 2000.

Heritage spaces

The strong future of the capital was undoubtedly forged in its extraordinary past. Spaces like Benjamin Franklin House and Spencer House have played host to notable individuals who have played a huge role in the formation of modern London and now stand as proud examples of the accomplishments of London’s inhabitants. From Cutty Sark, one of the world’s most famous ships and the last surviving tea clipper in existence, to Harrow School, where prominent Britons Winston Churchill and Lord Byron were educated, London’s heritage spaces rival those anywhere in the world.

Royal connection

Undoubtedly, one of London’s longest lasting appeals is its royal palaces, monuments and memorials. From the macabre history of the Tower of London, to the spectacular social occasions held at Kensington Palace, the city is strewn with the remnants of its royal influences. With a strong history of hospitality, royal sites such as Hampton Court Palace and Royal Hospital Chelsea make London one of the most exciting locations in the world for events.

Religious experiences

Offering some of the capital’s most atmospheric locations, religious venues provide plenty of opportunity for unique events. From LSO St Luke’s, the 18th century Hawksmoor church, repurposed as the home of the London Symphony Orchestra’s music education centre and the still active medieval grandeur of Southwark Cathedral, to Westminster Abbey, where the crowning of kings and queens has taken place for over 1000 years, the choice is endless. Another example and arguably London’s most iconic building, St Paul’s Cathedral is yet another religious building known for its breath-taking events and as a natural home for entertaining.
