What people say about us
More about Large Event Venues in London
What is a large event venue?
The term ‘large’ is fairly ambiguous in its nature, however for us, a large event venue is a space which can typically accommodate around 400+ attendees. Anything smaller than this we wouldn’t necessarily consider a ‘large’ space.
Some venues in London and beyond are much larger than others, such as ExCeL London, Business Design Centre and Tobacco Dock. Every large event venue is best suited to different event types and styles, depending on an array of factors, such as location, layout, and of course, size. You wouldn’t be able to deliver a product launch with 2000 guests in a space that can only accommodate a few hundred people.
There are plenty of large venues in London for all kinds of events, so it’s certainly worth taking the time to explore the options and work out what will be the best option for you and your guests.
Why are large event venues popular?
Many companies love to run huge events to bring communities together, deliver the greatest impact, attract new customers, reach as many people as possible and inspire and encourage people to engage in some sort of activity. This could be trying out their new product, celebrating a great achievement by attending a high-profile award ceremony, or connecting with like-minded people at large-scale conferences and exhibitions filled with educational content or experiences. It could also be a high-tech hybrid or virtual experience.
Many companies also like to throw huge parties for their customers, team and stakeholders, with a lot of exciting entertainment and food and drink. Large events stand out and can be extremely impressive if executed well, which is why they’re so popular.
