Plexal is an events destination and innovation centre for startups, scaleups and enterprises. We host everything from intimate drinks receptions and meetups to large-scale conferences, trade shows and launches. Surrounded by academic institutions, creatives and media companies at Here East, we're part of a growing tech cluster forming at Stratford. Designed as a mini-city, Plexal boasts an indoor park, high street, events space, meeting rooms, a 20-seater boardroom, Makers' Yard (dedicated to rehearsals, prototyping and workshops), events stage and bleachers, which are ideal for meetups.
Makers' Yard is a vast space dedicated to testing, creating and bringing ideas to life. This is where Plexal member BuffaloGrid develops the hardware for its Hub, which has been shortlisted for a Beazley Designs of the Year award. It's also hosted innovation workshops, breakout sessions and rehearsals for an installation featuring robots and ballet dancers that went on to the V&A.
Sitting opposite Makers' Yard and overlooking the Here East campus, Innovation Hub is where ideas are born and solutions uncovered. It's a popular destination for private roundtables, workshops and breakout sessions during events. It's also conveniently located right next to our coffee and tea point.
