When choosing to book an event in London it’s easy to get lost in its culture, arts, history, technology and science. London is a city that’s proud of its roots and embraces other cultures. In recent years, London has positioned itself as a leading destination for business events, not only in the UK but the world, due to its character, charm and accessibility.

As an events destination, London can cater to a diverse range of events from vibrant and innovative conferences and exhibitions, to exciting award ceremonies and trendy product launches. The capital offers a great magnitude of event ideas, taking strong influences from London which plays a part in making events in the city successful. We work closely with London & Partners, London’s official convention bureau, who say that there is no city on the planet that matches London for energy, diversity, creativity and constant reinvention, and that London’s combination of strengths make it an ideal corporate destination for international events.

When planning corporate events, London lends you it’s creativity meaning you can plan events that leave that important lasting impression. Here at The Mermaid London, we take advantage of what London has to offer, from it’s incredible views of The Shard, Tate Modern and Shakespeare’s Globe in our recently refurbished Upper River Room, the art and history embedded in our Auditorium, the only 600 seated auditorium in the City of London, to London’s historic routes and locations that take residence in our Newgate events spaces; Dowgate, Cripplegate, Bishopsgate and Aldgate.

Taking all of the above away, London also offers incredibly talented event professionals from around the world who go that extra mile, bringing their expertise, knowledge and passion for events to the table every time. The team at The Mermaid London have high credentials, experience and knowledge of the industry, meaning you can trust that your event is in the best hands.

Connectivity is also a HUGE factor that affects events. London is one of the world’s most connected cities with direct flights to over 380 destinations, fast and direct links on the underground and DLR, easy access to major motorway’s such as the M25 and transport via the River Thames. For us, it means our clients’ can walk only two minutes to Blackfriars Station, six minutes to St Paul’s Station, and only 40 minutes on the DLR/underground to London City Airport. London’s connectivity isn’t slowing down either, with many schemes in place to better aid travellers to the capital and enhance its green emissions in the coming years.

All of these reasons, plus many more, factor in to boosting London’s profile as a cutting-edge vibrant city, with events firmly placed in its heart.
