Venues of the Future

Wednesday, June 19, 2019 - 17:00

Last week’s London Tech Week presented an amazing opportunity to see how technology is transforming both the way we go about our daily lives and the way we do business.

The festival saw luminaries from some of the world’s biggest companies assemble to discuss how technology can improve society and how it can be effectively applied to make industry more efficient. 

It’s no different for the meetings and events sector where the latest innovations are impacting how we host events, augmenting our services and allowing our clients to improve engagement with their audience using cutting-edge tools and systems. 

This week, three of our forward-thinking members offer a glimpse into how their venues have incorporated the latest technology to deliver pioneering conferences and futuristic functions.

Royal Horticultural Halls

For the Royal Horticultural Halls, sustainable innovation were the words upon their lips in April when the Cleantech Innovate event saw environmentally-friendly future innovations designed to take care of our needs, such as the Loowatt waterless loo which won the main prize.

A 360 tour was also created so that organisers can take a look at every aspect of the venue set up as a live event.

Laban Building

The renowned Conservatoire of Music and Dance has extensive experience in hosting events which incorporate the latest technology to deliver their messages.

For example, the venue recently played host to UX London, a 3-day tech conference surrounding UX design. Over the course of the conference, Laban Building’s flexible space and advanced A/V and live streaming capabilities were used effectively to deliver content which resonated with delegates.

One particular highlight was a special session, WiFi Wars, which took place in the venue’s Laban and Studio Theatre. A live comedy game show where the audience are invited to play along using their smartphones and tablets, it provided an element of entertainment to maintain attendee engagement and break up the seminar schedule.

Tate Modern

No stranger to tech-heavy events, Tate Modern’s South Room lends itself to future-focused events and hackathons.

In the heart of the cool and contemporary Blavatnik Building, the South Room offers organisers the freedom to create an event to suit bespoke requirements and realise client engagement needs. It’s ideal for interactive learning conferences, product launches and daytime events, especially those with a digital focus.

The building’s high ceilings and modern architecture can best be seen in this space. Creating a flexible, light and airy environment within a truly innovative, inspiring and forward-thinking organisation, the South Room is the ideal setting for any event.
