With its stunning 270° views across the River Thames and London skyline, The Deck is renowned for producing memorable and distinctive events. Built six years ago, the venue is an ultra-modern glass cube with a capacious terrace ensuring enviable flexibility for clients due to its unique inside-outside set-up which embraces its exceptional central location and views yet remains suitable for the ever changing British weather.
The dedicated events team have enjoyed a stand-out year hosting 153 events for companies including Nike and Sainsbury’s, Sky Movies and Sky Atlantic. The unique versatility of the venue and its fantastic location mean it is highly sought after for private daytime meetings, product launches, conferences, weddings and exclusive evening events.
Continually developing ambitious concepts for the venue, the Deck unveiled a sell-out two-night pop-up restaurant ‘Teatro De Alimentos’ and, in December 2013, transformed into a Christmas themed luxurious alpine ski-lodge, ‘Chalet Noel’, complete with ski paraphernalia, snow and classic French cuisine.
Charley Taylor Smith, Head of Hospitality Events and Commercial Business Development of The Deck, said: “We are delighted to have won this award. It represents another great achievement for us at The Deck and is testament to our fantastic team and how tirelessly they work to ensure our small venue meets the big ambitions of our clients."
The Deck won the Small Venue of the Year award amongst fierce competition from Wyboston Lakes Hotel, RSA House and Dalhousie Castle.
The UK Event Awards are now in their fifth year and have grown to become one of the most sought after accolades in the industry. The awards recognise and reward event organisers, suppliers and event marketers and are judged by an independent team of industry professionals.
