What do you want from your Westminster Conference Venue?
We’re confident in the range of venues that we have on our books at VenueScanner. But as proud as we are of the choice that we provide, we know that it can be overwhelming - at least to start with.
If you want to be able to laser in on the best available property for your business conference in Westminster, then it helps to come to us with a list of requirements for the space you need.
Of course, things like the expected number of attendees will guide your decision making - you need a conference venue that can comfortably fit everyone in. Less obvious factors that are often overlooked are things like acoustics, the availability of power sockets, and the reliability of Wi-Fi or 4/5G networks in the area; little things that can have a big impact on the experience everyone has.
If you are planning a conference in Westminster where you have one main speaker at the front while the audience listens, you want a venue that is going to amplify the sound of their voice. On the other hand, if you’re going to be breaking people down into smaller groups and have attendees discussing things amongst themselves, you want an environment in which lots of people can talk simultaneously without being deafening.
When you’re browsing venues on our website, you can apply a range of filters to narrow down your results. If you’re having trouble breaking down exactly what it is that you’re looking for, click here to take a look at the available filters. Working through them will help you to think about the most important aspects of your venue search.
Of course, you can also contact our friendly team and we’ll happily advise you on the best Westminster conference venues over the phone or via email.
How to find the right Conference Venues in Westminster
After you’ve worked out what your raw specs are, you can start compiling a shortlist of venues that fit the bill. Once you have a few possible candidates, it takes a lot of the pressure off. If you’ve whittled it down to half-a-dozen or so choices, then you can get more creative in how you choose between them.
You already know what physical attributes you need from the space, but what sort of atmosphere do you want to create for your attendees? The VenueScanner catalogue has images for every potential venue - wherever possible, we’ve done our best to capture everything that each Westminster conference venue has to offer.
Plenty of the venues in our listings are versatile, and can host relatively intimate conferences or an all-out, packed-to-the-rafters affair. Take White Space Mayfair, for example. It’s a 4,000 sq ft space that can comfortably sit 400, but it can also be stripped back for an audience ten times smaller.
Our pick of private hire venues in Westminster can create formal and business-like atmospheres and free-wheeling environments alike.
Transport and Accommodation
Westminster is very well-served by London’s public transport network; its tube station is on the Circle, District and Jubilee underground lines and Heathrow Airport is within a 40-minute drive.
If you’re planning a late-night conference, Westminster has a number of hotels to choose from. However, remember that this is prime London real estate. For Monopoly players - Marylebone, Oxford Street, Regent Street, and Bond Street are all in Westminster. The price of a local hotel reflects this.
Even the cheapest hotel in Westminster itself is likely to set you back around £100 a night. However, if you’re willing to hop on a bus or catch the tube then you can easily get to somewhere more affordable within half an hour.
