Welcome Back to London
by the London Convention Bureau
After a challenging year for the global events and hospitality industry, the London Convention Bureau and our partners and suppliers are ready to welcome you back to experience the magic of London again. From innovative and newly refurbished venues to investment into state-of-the-art technology to support future event formats, London is open and ready for business tourism
London: where innovation meets events
Whilst we’re all looking forward to meeting our clients and stakeholders face to face again, hybrid events give you the best of both worlds and can make your event accessible to those who are less able to travel. London is home to a world-class business ecosystem, with strong sector expertise in areas like fintech, creative and sustainable industries, giving you access to a wealth of diverse and engaging speakers. This goes hand in hand with the enthusiastic event goer population in London, making the city a perfect location to organise a hybrid event. Venues like Tobacco Dock, IET London: Savoy Place and the Science Museum are all equipped with the latest immersive technology to bring your event to a global audience. Not to forget ExCeL London, who as a host of Confex 2021, also has a versatile studio to broadcast dynamic hybrid events.
The newest venues and hotels you can’t miss
London hasn’t stood still during the pandemic. Several international brands are expanding to London this year, with NoMad London, Mondrian Shoreditch and Pan Pacific London to open their doors in the first half of 2021. Another highly anticipated hotel that’s gearing up to open is The Londoner by the Edwardian Group, a five-star hotel with a strong focus on sustainable luxury.
A city-wide tourism campaign to encourage the return of business events
Worth £23bn to London’s economy and £70bn across the UK, the events industry has a vital role to play in London and the wider UK’s economic recovery. As part of the Mayor of London’s £6m recovery fund, the London Convention Bureau is supporting the Let’s Do London marketing campaign to inspire domestic audiences to visit the city again. Why not switch up your standard Zoom background for a backdrop of one of London’s unique venues to meet with clients or stakeholders, or organise a team building trip with authentic London experiences to boost your team’s morale?
As London’s official convention bureau, we are here to help you navigate the post-lockdown landscape and create a world-class experience for your delegates. We make it easy to find the best venues, hotels and activities, while connecting you with specialists who can help organise your event.
