London Congress Centre has opened a new space for the exhibitions and conventions. Known as the Congress Suite, this new space measures 17.7m x 10.4m,which is just two minutes’ walk from Tottenham Court Road tube station.
The completion of the new exhibition room has been carried out ahead of Elizabeth Line services commencing in late 2018 from nearby Tottenham Court Road tube station. It allows the direct access to Heathrow Airport in around 30 minutes.
The Congress Suite has the interconnecting meeting rooms to form one large contemporary space. It is complete with air conditioning and LED colour changeable lighting.
The room also features original 1950s’ parquet flooring , carefully restored, while two sets of glazed double doors have been added to access the new space.
It is situated on the same level as Congress Hall, when booked in conjunction with the Hall. The Congress Suite is an ideal exhibition area. It is large and has sufficient space to accommodate 14 3m x 2m exhibition stands.
Alternatively, the suite can be used as a breakout area for catering, workshops and meetings, accommodating up to 190 people for a sit-down meal or 200 standing.
Congress Suite is well-known for providing quality AV equipment. The Congress Suite has been fitted with a Yamaha LS9 16-channel digital sound desk with 2 top-table microphones, as well as lectern and roving microphones.
It has 6 lanyard units for the hard of hearing, while 14 double sockets around the room, free standard Wi-Fi, 7 double data sockets for hard-wired internet connection, Cat 6 connections and 63 amp 3 phase complete the technical specifications.
