No.11 Cavendish Square sees 36% rise in events as it celebrates first birthdayNo.11 Cavendish Square launched in April 2010 under the direction of the newly appointed Commercial Director, Jonathan Morris, who undertook the role in October 2009. This month No.11 celebrates its 1st birthday and reports a 36% rise in events compared to 2009 figures. Since its launch the venue has hosted 2,500 events including conferences, meetings, dinner dances, summer and Christmas parties for private and corporate clients.
The launch party held in early 2010 showcased No.11’s venue spaces as well as the summer and Christmas party offering; a new venture for the venue which would make these types of corporate events available for the very first time. With over 30 rooms available combining features of the Georgian era and contemporary designed rooms No.11 is ideal for a range of events from conferences to weddings.
Investment in the venue has seen £100,000 refurbishment on the conservatory event space transforming it into an 18th century inspired Orangery. Further refurbishment included the redecorating of the Presidents and Treasurers rooms in keeping with the venue’s Georgian features, and £250,000 refurbishment on the lavatories to enable them to be more environmentally friendly by reducing water and electricity wastage.
Looking at the year ahead Commercial Director Jonathan Morris plans to evolve the No.11 brand to include a more tailored one to one customer service experience. As well as developing the venues environmental credentials by applying for the Green Business Tourism Award and the London-centric Green Business Award. No.11’s Orangery is now bearing fruit and plans to harvest the produce for chutneys, marmalade and juices to be used in menus are being discussed as a means of enhancing sustainability.
