RIBA team at London Venue Awards
RIBA, London’s pre-eminent Art Deco venue, has been awarded Most Versatile Venue at this year’s London Venue Awards. The institute’s flagship venue, 66 Portland Place, was given the accolade on Friday 20 October having been recognised for its flexible and creative approach to events.

As a leading unique venue, RIBA operates across a wide spectrum of sectors within the events industry and is able to seamlessly meet the specific requirements of each. The venue hosts events spanning sectors such as corporate, fashion, weddings and private events, all of which have significantly varying objectives and requirements. Whether faced with an enquiry for a fashion show or a conference of up to 400 people, the RIBA events team is able to craft a memorable event using its flexible event spaces, ample technological abilities from video conferencing to web streaming, and creative catering from Harbour & Jones.

With outside spaces, daylight flooded rooms, contemporary and traditional styles and stunning views over London, RIBA offers a range of unique spaces and with two galleries and tailored building tours, lasting memories are created.

As well as a memorable setting, judges at the London Venue Awards chose RIBA as the Most Versatile Venue due to its proven ability to host a wide range of events for up to 400 people including conferences, weddings, private parties, meetings, awards dinners and fashion shows, as well as being a prominent filming and photoshoot location.  

Moya Maxwell, Head of Venues at RIBA, comments: “We are thrilled to have won Most Versatile Venue at the London Venue Awards. The flexibility that 66 Portland Place affords us means that we work across a number of sectors within the industry, all of which have vastly different briefs, objectives and ROI focusses. Our team of dedicated professionals are well-placed to deal with the varying event briefs that they face on a daily basis, all the while demonstrating an incredible level of professionalism, expertise and a determination to go the extra mile.  

“Whether the event is professional or private, evening or daytime, large or small, RIBA has ample space and resource to draw upon when organising such a diverse selection of events. This award win is testament to the creativity and adaptability of both our inspiring venue and dynamic events team.”
