Conference and events centre Central Hall Westminster has experienced its best quarter for over five years, with revenue up 30 per cent compared to the same period in 2012/13.
These figures cover the period September to November 2013, the first financial quarter for the venue, and mark the end of a year that has seen the venue host events including tech conference LeWeb, the Chinese International Film Festival, London Fashion Week and Gary Barlow’s New Year’s Eve concert that was broadcast live by the BBC.
“2013 was a busy year for us at Central Hall, so it was great to see this reflected in the Q1 results,” says MD at Central Hall Westminster, Paul Southern. “It is a great start to our financial year and we have yet more planned for the remainder of 2014 and are set to welcome many new events here.”
Central Hall says in 2013 it became the first London-based conference venue to produce a specialist B2B mobile site and launched the Meet The Future campaign, designed to explore event technologies and encourage planners to take a proactive step in embracing emerging technology. The first event of the campaign, to be held on 20 February 2014, will focus on where event technology is today, with a roundtable discussion dedicated to Wi-Fi.
