Earlier this month I was part of a team running an event at the IET (Institute of Engineering and Technology) at Savoy Place, which I would gladly recommend.
The venue is only a 10-minute walk from Charing Cross railway station and can also be easily accessed from Temple and Embankment tube stations.
We used Flowers and Lovelace Rooms, both on the ground floor, right next to reception.
Being adjacent, the two rooms make a perfect combination of meeting and break-up space, allowing you to keep all your delegates in one place.
Registration, coffee breaks and pre-dinner drinks took place in Flowers, which benefits from a lot of natural light and overlooks Victoria Embankment and Waterloo Bridge.
The meeting took place in Lovelace which can sit up to 33 people U-shape and up to 40 around one rectangular table for dinner.
At the end of the meeting, the Savoy Place staff where very efficient at turning Lovelace into a dinner room in the little time they had.
The food was really good quality and the in-house AV staff deserve a particular mention for being incredibly efficient and flexible, having had to deal with a few last-minute requests.
Savoy Place has rooms of all sizes, including two lecture theatres, rooms with balconies on the upper floors and a big auditorium on the top floor which leads straight into a roof terrace. It can therefore accommodate events of all sizes, from 1on1 interviews to large receptions.
I would happily use this space again in the future.
Whether you need a discreet place to interview candidates for a key hire in a one-to-one meeting or want to present to up to 451 people, we've a room that can accommodate you. Our refurbishment has created a pleasant, welcoming space for delegates, making more of the views of the River Thames and increasing capacity and flexibility. We offer: Enhanced accessibility, including a Sesame lift where the stone steps retract for easy wheelchair access Private balconies in the Maxwell Library and Riverside Room with views of the Thames Air-conditioning in all rooms, most of which benefit from natural light A range of room layout options, including boardroom, classroom and theatre styles, with cabaret-style meetings for up to 200 people Interesting displays in public areas showing how engineers have changed our world
