This month, Spurs signs Lime Venue Portfolio, QEII Centre calls for coat donations and IET Venues undergoes technology upgrades. 

The new home of Tottenham Hotspur joins Lime Venue Portfolio 

Tottenham Hotspur Stadium has appointed venue consortium Lime Venue Portfolio to help support its conference and events business with its sales and marketing functions.

The new football stadium in northeast London offers a range of spaces for meetings, hospitality and events. 

The East Quarter on Level Three can hold up to 1,200 guests for a large-proportioned drinks reception, whilst other options include 800 guests for a theatre-style event, and 500 for a formal dining experience. 

The East Quarter on Level Two can also hold 1,200 guests for a drinks reception but offers a more intimate setting for theatre-style and dining events, holding 200 and 150 respectively. 

Meanwhile, the large atrium space within the glass-fronted South Stand is known as The Market Place. Here, up to 2,000 guests can enjoy a street-style food emporium and grab a drink from the 65-metre long Goal Line Bar, the longest in Europe.

Plus, a microbrewery and taproom can be found in the southeast corner of the stadium. Some 120 guests can be accommodated for a reception-style event here, or alternatively 80 in theatre-style. 

QEII Centre stages coat donation for Wrap Up London

London’s QEII Centre is calling upon event professionals to donate their old, unwanted or unused coats to provide for the homeless, the elderly and refugees this Winter.

Hands on London will be launching its Wrap Up London campaign for the ninth year on 11 November. Last year, the charity collected over 23,000 coats and items of warm clothing.

Westminster venue, the QEII Centre will be hosting a coat donation point throughout the campaign, which runs from 11 November until 22 November.

Last year the venue collected more than 700 coats to support the Wrap Up London campaign, and is calling on the event industry to make this year’s coat drive an even greater success.

The QEII coat donation point will be open from 7am-6pm, Monday to Friday, from 11 to 22 November.

IET Venues invests in venue technology upgrades 

IET Venues has completed over half a million pounds in AV and technology upgrades to its two conference and events venues in London and Birmingham.

IET Birmingham: Austin Court has received over £450,000 of redevelopments including upgrades to the 150-seated capacity Kingston Lecture Theatre.

A new state-of-the art sound system offers an enriched audio experience, perfect for award ceremonies. Two new HD projection walls will further enhance future events by allowing presentations to be displayed in an ultra-wide format.

Additionally, newly installed LED coloured lighting allows for increased branding capabilities making the Kingston Lecture Theatre suited to events such as product launches.

IET London: Savoy Place’s Riverside Room has also undergone over £280,000 of investments, adding to its existing high quality AV and further transforming the versatile 180-capacity event space.

New cameras have been installed allowing presenters to be filmed from any angle and live relayed onto two new video walls and two additional LED screens, ensuring full delegate visibility.
