TOP 10 REASONS TO HAVE YOUR CONFERENCE AT BATTERSEA EVOLUTION
Fri 29 May 2015
Situated in the heart of Battersea park, our 4000 sqm blank box space provides an ideal venue for large conferences, association meetings, AGMs and product launches. We've put together our top 10 reasons to choose Battersea Evolution for your event:
1. A central location in a developing area of London
People often think Battersea Evolution is very much South West London, whilst we are in the SW postcode, the venue is only 1 mile from Victoria station.
Once Battersea power station underground opens in 2020, you will be able to stroll over to Battersea Evolution in just 10 minutes.
2. 24 hour access to build your event
With plenty of parking for trucks and suppliers and a 24 hour access window, we are one of the only venues in London where you can load in and set up with ease. Plenty of time for a few tea rounds and bacon sandwiches!
3. 4000sqm of clear span event space and growing
Battersea Evolution has a total footprint of 5,500m² split into three main areas; a 450m² glass fronted Atrium, a 4,000m² Main space and 750m² "back of house" area that can also be used as event space. The Main Arena can easily be subdivided to meet the capacity and function requirements of any event. We are growing too.....
4. A brand new mezzanine in September 2015
A 700 sqm first floor mezzanine will straddle the atrium and the main event space. The mezzanine level will provide a new reception area, bringing a new dimension for parties, conferences and exhibitions, allowing the space to be used for bar areas, cafes and additional exhibition space.
5. Office space for event organisers including a boardroom
In September 2015 we'll also have a brand new event organisers office and a boardroom. Which means you can have a space to be the super organised events professional that you are. Plus you can practice your Alan Sugar impressions across the boardroom table!
6. Unrivalled branding and production opportunities with existing rigging
From our flag poles that line the driveway, to a myriad of layouts, theming and decor, Battersea Evolution offers the potential to surprise and delight. Indoor dodgem cars? An impactful band reveal? Pyrotechnic and laser show? Anything is possible.
Take a look at our case study of an event by Adobe who held their 'Digital Marketing Summit' at Battersea Evolution with a 50 metre wide screen!
7. 100Mbps superfast wireless internet
With our recently upgraded fibre optic internet capabilities now offering up to 100Mbps superfast wireless connectivity across the venue, you can be safe in the knowledge that your conference will be connected.
8. Theatre style for 4000 and cabaret for 1600
We are a large conference venue with a great capacity. The main space can be easily sub-divided into conference, catering and exhibition areas to create the exact layout, size and number of rooms you require. Additional breakouts can also be created to suit your requirements, either by lead-lined draping, internal ‘pop-up’ structures or hard walling – whichever you prefer.
9. Natural Daylight
From September 2015 we will have natural daylight flooding into our conference venue. This means delegates can sip on a coffeee whilst standing on the mezzanine, taking in the beautiful views over Battersea Park.
We might be biast, but Battersea park really is one of the most beautiful parks in central London.
10. Smart Hospitality are on site
Our fantastic catering brand 'Smart Hospitality' are on site and ready to cater your event. Sourced from sustainable and artisan suppliers, our food is local, honest, and most of all delicious. This plus the creative talents of our chefs, under the direction of Angela Hartnett - one of the UK’s leading and most respected chefs, provides the foundation for exceptional food.
