99 City Road Wins Prestigious London Venue Awards Accolade
99 City Road Conference Centre has won the award for Best Conference Venue for up to 600 delegates at the London Venue Awards which were held at the Emirates Stadium on Friday October 14th.
The venue, previously known as Inmarsat Conference Centre, beat off stiff competition from six other finalists in the category to win the award. It comes after it underwent an extensive £350k refurbishment and re-brand last year which included the installation of some of the most state-of-the-art AV equipment currently available which is included within the day delegate rate.
99 City Road Conference Centre is a 300-capacity conference and events venue situated within the headquarters of global satellite specialists, Inmarsat, close to the City of London. The venue, which is located directly outside Old Street tube and rail station on Silicon roundabout, boasts a combined total of 1587 sq m of flexible floor space to host virtually any type of event within its 16 rooms. Award winning caterers, Elior UK, provide the catering at the venue with rotating seasonal menus offering event organisers extensive food and beverage options.
The venue’s team of event managers is headed up by Conference Centre Manager, Sandra Wilson, who said: “We are absolutely delighted to have won Best Conference Venue for up to 600 delegates at the London Venue Awards.
