Large conference venue in Central London

The spaces

Congress Centre has several conference venue spaces, available depending on the size you need. Our largest space, Congress Hall, has capacity for 500 delegates sitting in a theatre-style and comes with an adjoining foyer. On the same floor you’ll also find Congress Suite, great for breakouts, catering and exhibitions. We also have a further conference space which holds up to 160 attendees in a theatre-style and several other options for smaller talks, seminars and food and drink.


Our in-house caterers have packages that will suit all of your food and drink requirements, whether you’re holding a networking buffet, providing mid-morning snacks or a hosting celebratory, post-conference, sit-down dinner. Our kitchens are also more than happy to tweak our offerings or to create totally bespoke menus if you have specific ideas in mind.

The details

The AV facilities in Congress Hall are second-to-none and include a 20,000 lumens HD projector, an 18ft drop down screen, a stage, two 85 inch plasma monitors for visual reinforcement and a whole host of other equipment. You can also enlist the services of our in-house technicians which will leave you free to concentrate on looking after your invitees on the big day.


Whether your delegates are local, national or international, getting to Congress Centre is easy as we’re a just a few minutes’ walk from Tottenham Court Road and about 5 minutes’ from Oxford Street and Covent Garden. As well as being handy for public transport links, our location is also great for post-conference entertainment and accommodation.

Central London Conference Centre FAQs

What can I expect when I book a viewing at your London conference venue?

When you come to view our conference venue, we’ll start off with a show around of the conference centre to let you get a feel for what’s possible here. We’ll talk you through how your event will run on the day and even show you how you’d experience it as a delegate at the venue. We’ll also make sure you know what to expect when it comes to AV equipment and catering too.

You’ll have the same team from enquiry, throughout the planning process, on the day and beyond; you’ll be in safe hands from start to finish.

Is it possible to hire out the entire venue for a conference?

We offer exclusive hire of a combination of our spaces, but not the entire conference venue.

For example, when the Congress Hall is hired it automatically includes exclusive access to a dedicated entrance foyer and registration area – great for creating a cohesive experience for delegates.

Both the Invision Suites and collection of Meeting Rooms can be hired out in their entirety too. In each of these, the walls can be fully opened up to form larger spaces in conference style seating.

Do you have any conference package options?

We offer great value DDRs that can be tailored to meet the needs of your brief.

We pride ourselves on having one of the best priced delegate rates offered by any conference venue in central London. As standard, our DDR includes all the amenities you’d expect, including:

  • Tea, coffee and oven-baked goods on arrival
  • A great standard of AV equipment
  • A choice of hot and cold lunch menus
  • Two further rounds of tea, coffee and treats throughout the day
  • Flipchart
  • And of course, the room hire

Please get in touch if you’d like to find out more about our current DDR options.

Is it possible to bring in external caterers or AV teams for my conference?

We don’t accept outside caterers for events held at our meeting and conference venue in London. We have our own brilliant in-house team of chefs who offer an extensive menu to suit every occasion.

We do allow external AV teams. Whilst we do have an incredibly high standard of tech built-in already (including more than £250,000 worth of AV in our Congress Hall alone), we understand that sometimes additional equipment is required to fully meet your brief.
