This is the first image of a major new conference hotel in East London.
The new InterContinental London – The O2 has been unveiled to the international meetings and events community at IMEX in Frankfurt.
The new 453-bedroom hotel will open its doors this winter and will feature a 3,100sqm pillar-free events space, which the operators claim is the largest in Europe.
The hotel has direct access to the O2 entertainment complex.
Raj Shah, commercial director at The Arora Group, the venue owner, said the new property is a game-changer for the English capital.
He said: “IMEX is the perfect place for us to unveil the full scale and ambition of the hotel. The InterContinental London – The O2 will be a major new London venue and we wanted a forum where we could speak to as many event organisers as possible to officially launch the property to the international events market.”
Tracy Halliwell, Director of Business Tourism and Major Events at London & Partners, the official promotional company for the capital, said: “The opening of the InterContinental London – The O2 is a great story for London and testament to the widespread and international appeal of East London’s growing events district.”
