London Stadium, the former Olympic Stadium in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and now the home of West Ham United Football Club and UK Athletics, is now open for meetings and events, it has been announced.
The development of the meetings and events facilities draws on themes from the surrounding East End. Event spaces include:
The Arnold Hills
The Arnold Hills pays homage to a true visionary, a man with an appetite for change and whose grand vision for East London began to realise its potential over 100 years later at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
The Royal East
The Royal East is a space to recognise the iconic events and incredible achievements that East London has inspired.
Taking inspiration from Bobby Moore’s professional heyday, BM6 is styled in the sixties and explores the player, the friend and the gentleman.
The Forge is a timeless tribute to glory and showcases the end result of tireless determination and real effort. A space that wears Olympic medals and football accolades proudly, the Great Briton references the British champions of London 2012 as well as those remarkable West Ham United players and managers who earned a major winners medal.
The Academy is an elegant exploration of the care and the craft that goes into developing young athletes.
Tours are available specifically for meetings and events bookings delegates and dinner guests.
Linda Lennon, London Stadium CEO, commented: “The meetings and events spaces will offer a unique opportunity to hold an event in a venue inspired by the achievements of the great athletes who have graced this iconic venue.”
Delaware North, the hospitality and food service provider at the stadium, will be managing the meetings and events and Doug Tetley, managing director at Delaware North UK said: “We’re delighted to be hosting the London Stadium meetings and events and look forward to creating exciting, memorable and stylish experiences”
