The Kia Oval is one of the finest – and fastest growing – conference and events destinations in
central London, as well as one of the most historic sporting venues in the world.
Perfectly located just minutes from the West End, Westminster and the City, the Kia Oval is a stone’s throw from the River Thames. Outside of the Congestion Charge Zone and served by five London Underground stations, a National Rail station and parking space for up to 50 cars on-site, delegates can access the venue with ease.
As one of the most historic sporting venues in the world, the Oval offers a unique experience with spaces ranging from the remarkable Victorian wood-panelled Long Room to the unique Corinthian Roof Terrace that offers panoramic views across London. The recent redevelopment of the Roof Garden, installation of electronic signage and soon to be construction of a new stand ensures that the 170-year-old ground remains a leading, and modern venue.
The Kia Oval can cater for any event from a two-person meeting to a grand event for 1,000 guests. Our team are experienced in hosting large conferences, award ceremonies, and dinners with a roster of blue-chip clients from the commercial and public sectors – including IBM, The Voice and the EE - that trust our event space and delivery and return regularly.
When hosting an event at the Kia Oval, clients are appointed one of our dedicated team of events co-ordinators who will guarantee that the event is organised with ease. Every enquiry is treated with paramount dedication and one of our experienced Sales Executives will manage your event from the point of enquiry through to delivery to ensure it runs hassle-free.
Each client of the Kia Oval receives the best possible experience, and your Sales Executive will pride themselves on knowing every detail of your event.
Metropolitan House, a recent client, commented: “Customer Service was great, listened to our needs and made suitable recommendations. Lucy came to see us after the meeting to see if we were happy and also organised a tour at the end for a staff member of ours who was leaving and loves cricket.”
Compass, a world-leader in catering, bring passion, creativity and excellence to every plate, and deliver an unrivalled cuisine with their award-winning team of Chefs at the Kia Oval. Your event is one of a kind, and so we believe the service we provide you with should be too.

This experience is exemplified by the experience of Middlesex University at the Kia Oval: “Absolutely one of the best teams I have ever worked with; they were always available without being in your face. Particularly helpful to those attendees with vast food allergies.”
Our on-site audio-visual team ensure that any event technology required runs effortlessly. The AV team communicate directly with clients to ensure that all technological requirements are understood clearly, and met, to take unnecessary stress out of an event. The NHS stated: “the AV team were very helpful. IT makes me very nervous, but we were put at ease.”
We have some very exciting times ahead as the venue has been granted full planning permission for another incredible three-tier stand comprising of two main rooms each with their own terrace, four breakout rooms and crowned with a magnificent Roof Terrace to rival the hugely popular Corinthian Roof Terrace. This construction will increase the maximum capacity of the Kia Oval to upwards of 900 in a single room. Couple this with 6m ceiling heights and floor to ceiling windows this development will further solidify the Kia Oval’s position as one of the most sought-after events venues in London. The development, dubbed One Oval Square, will hugely improve the facilities available for holding Conferences and Events at the ground, a side of the business that has multiplied many times over in recent years. Now we’re taking it to the next level.
