Visitors to Plexal are instantly wowed by the sheer scale of the venue, the natural light flooding the building and the innovation that's gone into its design. But it's perhaps being surrounded by ambitious entrepreneurs in the space that hosted sporting heroes during the 2012 Olympic Games that most inspires. We recently hosted the launch of the government's Clean Growth Strategy, the Stemettes Monster Confidence Conference and networking drinks for Deloitte. Companies like Ford have also made use of our state-of-the art, 20-seater boardroom.
