10 Reasons To Have Your Conference At Battersea Evolution
Thu 25 Jan 2018
Situated in the heart of the beautiful and historic Battersea Park, our 5,500m2 blank canvas space provides an ideal venue for large conferences, association meetings, AGMs, product launches and much more. We've put together our top 10 reasons to choose Battersea Evolution for your next conference:
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, as well as 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. 5,500m2 of event space
Battersea Evolution has a total footprint of 5,500m2 split into four main areas; a 300m² glass fronted Atrium, a 700m2 Mezzanine, a 3,750m2 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.
4. The Mezzanine
A 700m2 first floor mezzanine sits above the atrium and the main event space. The mezzanine level provides a reception area, bringing a new dimension for parties, conferences and exhibitions, and allowing the space to be used for bar areas, cafés and additional exhibition space.
5. Office space for event organisers including a boardroom
At Battersea Evolution, you can also take advantage of the event organisers' office and a boardroom. This 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.

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 style 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
We 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 biased, 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 for your event. Sourced from sustainable and artisan suppliers, our food is local, honest and, most of all, delicious. This, merged with the creative talents of all our chefs, under the direction of Angela Hartnett - one of the UK’s leading and most respected chefs - provides the foundation for exceptional food.
