In 2016 the London Convention Centre did its part to invest in London’s future. On October 19th, 2015 the 22-year old Convention Centre launched an important capital improvement project. This $5 million investment to upgrade the LCC has furthered our everyday commitment to clients - best in class service and expectations exceeded with every interaction.
With a 33,000 square foot ballroom located on the second level, the new main level houses up to 14 breakout rooms, making the LCC a place where events and conferences run with ease, no matter how large the scale. Our renovations boast more modern, flexible, accessible spaces to meet the needs of sophisticated audiences. The new first level floor plan has four distinct spaces that can be divided a number of different ways using moveable walls, allowing clients to achieve a room size to fit their needs. The focal point of the new space is an open central foyer, boasting natural light, which can be separated into three rooms. This space can house three separate breakout sessions by day, and host an elegant stand up cocktail reception by night. The renovated space includes new floor and wall finishes, new door hardware, beautiful chandeliers and energy efficient LED light fixtures throughout. The new salon spaces also include a digital hearing assistance system laid directly into the floor. This will allow any guests with digital hearing aids to tap directly into the audio system of the event automatically upon stepping into the room. In addition to these visible changes, back corridors have been widened to allow for better food and beverage service and access to power and internet has become easier, with more access points in the walls and floors. These initiatives will help to further improve the overall client experience.
We would like to thank our community and clients for their support during this 10 month process, and we look forward to sharing our new space with you!
