It can be challenging to excite the delegates when you host your event at a hotel. Everyone will expect a standard conference room.
But what if you use The Presidential Suite instead of a conference room? That’s what we did for the latest #EventPlannersTalk LIVE event. The event took place at The Westminster Suite at The London Marriott Hotel, County Hall.
Located in the heat of London, just walking distance from Westminster tube station, The London Marriott Hotel, County Hall, is a hidden gem in the busy and very touristic city center. I didn’t even know that the hotel was there until I went for a site-visit. All London’s top attractions – The London Eye, Westminster Abbey, House of Parliament, Westminster Bridge and London Aquarium – are also just walking distance from the venue.
The room is on the 5th floor and signage can be provided. The venue can accommodate about 25 people for an event like #EventPlannersTalk LIVE, where people can seat comfortably on sofas and bar stools. For private dinners or boardroom style events the capacity will be maximum 1o at the table. Unfortuantley the table cannot be moved.
The only downside of the venue is that the TV screen, the 42in/107cm, is fixed so you can’t reposition it when holding a presentation. For us it didn’t matter and was very helpful using it for a holding slide.
The The London Marriott Hotel, County Hall has great food selection and we went for the buffet option.
Pulled Pork Wrap, Cabbage-Apple Slaw
Roasted Duck, Thai Vegetable Salad, Glass Noodles, Sesame-Soy Dressing
Homemade Dill Cured Salmon, Pea Shoot, Lemon Crème Fraiche
Compressed Watermelon, Herb Goat’s Cheese, Pistachio, Aged Balsamic
Ham Hock & Pea Salad, Pickled Onion, Sweet Mustard Dressing, Crackling
Semi-Dried Tomato Salad, Mozzarella Cheese, Pine Nuts, Black Olive Vinaigrette
As you can see on the pictures the food was beautifully presented and tasted even better!
Everyone loved the venue! It was something different, exclusive, luxurious and provided a uniue experience, definitely not the usual hotel conference room and I can highly reccomend!
