Ideal Venues for Social Programmes - London and Edinburgh

By Will Adams -

With London and Edinburgh being two of the UK’s top destinations for conferences, organisers are always looking for interesting new venues to host the social programmes that wrap around these events. With delegates travelling from other parts of the country or overseas to attend the conference, it’s a great opportunity for them to all come together, network with their peers, engage and socialise and enjoy the host city and all it has to offer.

From welcome receptions at the start of the program, to ‘meet and greet’ events for those attending for the first time, or specialist talks and celebratory gala dinners, these social programmes give organisers and delegates the chance to meet together in a social setting before the real work begins.

At Prestige Venues & Events, we have a wealth of interesting venues for social program events in both London and Edinburgh and we can assist you with the development and management of an exciting schedule for your delegates whether you need a one-off event or a host of venues to accommodate a wider social program. Either way we have countless ways to deliver a memorable experience.

Discover London

Hosting a conference in London gives you access to such a wide range of venues and it’s important to find one that will appeal to your delegates, many of whom will have visited the city countless times before and enjoy experiencing something new each time. Bateaux London,  The Wallace Collection  or  RAF Museum offer just that and your delegates are sure to have an experience like no other.

Whether it’s a post conference reception or dinner cruise on the River Thames, experience exclusive hospitality and the unmatched views of this incredible city by night. For a beautiful dining experience in a magical setting, head for The Wallace Collection, where guests can be treated to a guided tour of the museum before dining in the stunning glass-roofed courtyard and sculpture garden, a real hidden gem nestled in the heart of London. Or for the more technically minded delegates, check out RAF Museum London, with six incredible hangers showing the history of aviation and the RAF, a change to sit in the cockpit of a Spitfire, host a dinner beneath the wings of a Lancaster bomber or a BBQ reception in the outdoor grass covered quadrant.

Discover Edinburgh

Edinburgh. Steeped in history and seamlessly blending old and new, is the perfect destination to experience the sights, sounds and tastes of a diverse and vibrant city and ever popular as a conference destination for good reason.
