The directory offers a comprehensive overview of how to book London for business tourism events and makes it clear which venues work best for different sized congresses within specific areas
With over 1000 venues it can be difficult to choose so the guide makes it easier by containing the suppliers, venues, hotels and travel partners that are needed to make an event a success.
This year London & Partners has updated the 40 page guide - in time for Imex America 2013 - with a host of new additions.
Among other things, the guide highlights how conventions can now explore a range of social and entertainment options in the Queen Elizabeth II Olympic Park.
Other new social options include the EDF London Eye Barracuda offering a dining experience on the River Thames, and the recently launched River Rooms at the Mermaid conference in the City of London.
King’s College London and Queen Mary University of London are also offering great new venues and accommodation.
The Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre and Central Hall Westminster are now promoting their combined facilities to house 2100 delegates in the heart of Westminster.
The Association Directory also features details of travel partners, including ‘oneworld events’ – a partnership offering discounted rates and various delegate and organiser benefits on 12 airlines, including British Airways.
Becky Graveney, Head of Associations at London & Partners, said: ‘This guide is a great tool for all event planners. The conference venues are segmented by size; over 1000 delegates, over 500 delegates and academic venues. There are also sections on social London, value London, Green London, future and event services.
‘A comprehensive map locates all the venues and hotels to help you navigate the city and the index lists all the capacities by layout.
‘And don’t forget for all event planners it is well worth remembering the Association Team at the London & Partners’ Convention Bureau can assist you all the way and our services are free.’
