The Barbican, Europe’s largest combined conference and arts venue, is now 3% up year on year. This news comes ahead of a year in which the Barbican is set to begin improvements across the venue.
“It is a big year ahead for us and these figures only serve to solidify the foundation in which we are going to build upon,” comments Jackie Boughton, Head of Sales at Barbican Business Events. “Year on year we are increasing commercial awareness both domestically and internationally but the figures show real growth across the board. Growing interest in the use of Barbican Hall and Theatre has helped whilst Milton Court is another success story. Changes are afoot across the venue and these figures should only make us more excited about the future of the Barbican.”
Milton Court, a £90million development for the Guildhall School of Music & Drama, has seen 63% growth in business events compared to this point last year which is an increase of more than 50% year on year. The hall boasts a maximum seat capacity of 608, world-class acoustic design and state-of-the-art technical capability. The venue, located in the City of London, is perfect for AGMs, conferences or product launches.
