HERE EAST, EAST LONDON'S MOST VERSATILE EVENT SPACE, OPENS ITS DOORS
Thu 30 Jun 2016
Here East is East London’s newest and most versatile events space, prominently based within a 1.2 million sq ft campus for the creative and digital industries, located in London’s Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. Formerly the Press and Broadcast Centre, used during the 2012 London Olympics, Here East consists of 37,000 square feet of prime event space and is a place of immense opportunity. Here East lends itself perfectly to creativity and is ideal for film screenings, art installations, product launches, conferencing, award shows, TED-style talks, employee engagement, hustings, dinners and parties.
The launch of Here East saw local businesses and event managers come together to explore the enormous space, whilst enjoying cocktails and a BBQ on the private roof terrace. The roof terrace offers a panoramic view across the city and the landscaped canal side below. Onsite catering at Here East is provided by highly acclaimed event caterers Smart Hospitality. The launch event provided the perfect backdrop to showcase Smart Hospitality's delicious food and service. Guests tucked into chargrilled lamb fillets with salsa Verde, buttermilk fried chicken with kimchee mayo in a brioche roll and freshly cooked pumpkin tortelloni with sage butter and crushed amaretti. Desserts included Eton mess, summer pudding and lemon posset with lavender shortbread.
