London conference centre sees spike in European bookings

99 City Road Conference Centre has seen a spike in the number of European event bookings in the coming months. The Shoreditch venue was re-launched last year following an extensive upgrade and refurbishment programme.

Bookings have been made from the likes of Air Liquide Healthcare, a French medical supplies company and the European Space Agency Conference Bureau. Further enquiries have also been received from other international booking agents which have resulted in bookings for 2017 and beyond from many blue chip companies, including Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) for its annual Discover event.

The bookings account for a total of six days of conferences and will see more than 1,200 people arrive through the doors of the venue.

Sandra Wilson, manager of 99 City Road Conference Centre, said: “Thanks to the interest from European bookers as well as our regular clients in the UK, 99 City Road is on track to have its most successful year to date both in terms of event bookings and revenue. We are booking up quickly for 2017 and have very little availability for the remainder of this year.

“We’re delighted to host such a range of prestigious events and particularly proud that as a venue, we are standing out to clients from across the globe. We have many features that would appeal to an international audience such as interpreter booths in our main conference room and the ability to livestream events. We hope to build on these relationships and secure further international bookings in the future.”

The venue, which has been operating since 2000, has enjoyed a string of successes of late following a re-brand and refurbishment last year. It is currently waiting to hear whether it will be selected as the winner of a London Venue Award in the ‘Best Conference Venue for Up to 600 Delegates’ category.
