Congress Centre has announced the opening of congress suite, a brand new space at the venue in London following extensive renovations carried out over the summer.
The new offering has been created from four smaller interconnecting meeting rooms to form one large contemporary space.
Ruby Chagger, conference and sales manager at Congress Centre, commented: “The Congress Suite is a welcome addition to the venue as clients have been crying out for another large space, particularly for use as an exhibition area to accompany events taking place in Congress Hall. The new space has turned out to be even better than I envisaged.”
The launch of the new exhibition space has been strategically planned for completion ahead of the Elizabeth Line services commencing in late 2018 from nearby Tottenham Court Road tube station. The railway will allow direct access to Heathrow in around 30 minutes.
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.
There is also a Sennheiser infrared hearing loop with six 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.
Congress Centre has also announced that the summer renovation programme included the refurbishment of the women’s and men’s washroom facilities on the same level to increase capacity, install new LED lighting as well as installing new LED lights in Congress Hall.
