Earlier this month our team attended the 2019 London Venue Awards. We were shortlisted in two categories, for Best Conference Venue – Under 400 Theatre Style and for Best Venue Space in the City. We picked up the Bronze award for the former which we are all very excited about. The judging panel was made up of 40 industry experts so we’re thrilled that they were impressed by what we have to offer.
99 City Road offers numerous spaces that can accommodate a variety of events and can welcome 20 to 300 delegates. Ideal for conferences, meetings or a product launch, with innovative, award-winning catering available and experienced staff at hand. These points were all noted by the judging panel, who, in their feedback stated that “most impressive from an event organisers perspective is the transparency and competitiveness of pricing. Combined with tastings and site visits, they enable you to tailor the perfect event for your needs at a comparatively cost-effective price”.
Our location is another reason highlighted by the judging panel. They said, “99 City Road has a great hub in an increasingly vibrant Old Street”. With links to central hotels, we’ve ensured discounted deals for conference delegates for accommodation at hotels such as Nobu Hotel in Shoreditch and Doubletree by Hilton Hotel London Islington.
The judges continued, “Great sustainability in place at a new and modern event space with a focus on AV and technical support” We offer the very latest audio-visual, sound and lighting equipment in our conference centre rooms, meeting rooms and event spaces. The use of AV equipment is included in your Day Delegate Rate and our professional AV technicians are available throughout the duration of your event to assist you with all technical aspects. With regards to sustainability, we recycle a minimum of 90 percent of the waste we generate and we also have initiated a partnership with the food-sharing platform Olio. As a result, we share surplus food with our local community and have dramatically reduced our food waste.
We are all extremely happy at 99 City Road to have won Bronze for Best Conference Venue – Under 400 Theatre Style at the 2019 London Venue Awards and we look forward to more achievements in the future.
