AV facilities

We pride ourselves on being one of the best-equipped venues in London. But it’s not just our state-of-the-art, in-built facilities that make Congress Centre a first-class venue, it’s also the dedication and expertise of our in-house technicians. They can take care of all of the details for you, so you can have complete peace of mind and spend your time focussing on your guests on the big day. In our largest space, Congress Hall, we have a stage, HD projector, an 18ft drop-down screen and colour changeable LED lighting system, plus, a long list of extra equipment for you to choose from.

The spaces and capacities

Our rooms range from a large conference suite that sits 500 in a theatre style layout to smaller meeting rooms that are perfect for breakout sessions or board meetings for a few dozen people. We also have interconnecting spaces which can be opened up to accommodate anything in between.


Our Head Chef, Damon Shorland, and his team have a selection of menus and packages that cover every type of catering an event organiser could need. Our kitchens are also very happy to adapt their menus or create entirely bespoke options for planners who have specific cuisines or themes in mind.


Bordering both Bloomsbury and Holborn and being just a two-minute walk from Tottenham Court Road tube station puts Congress Centre in an ideal position to service local, national and international visitors. With fabulous public transport links and the West End right on our doorstep, clients tell us our central London location is one of the main reasons they book academic events with us.
