Here's TTGmice's weekly round-up of MICE developments outside of Asia-Pacific.
The city of London has a new event space
Events @ No 6 will officially open its doors in London next month.
The new-build, state-of-the-art venue will also be home to The Royal College of Pathologists. It comprises a union of bright meeting rooms alongside airy, relaxed open spaces suitable for events like corporate meetings, product launches and academic conferences. Room capacity ranges up to 210 theatre-style and all rooms include the latest audiovisual equipment.
Flexible breakout areas will allow delegates a chance to refresh and refuel in naturally lit, open spaces overlooking the city.
The top floor offers organisers with an open-air terrace and another flexible event space. Ideal for drinks receptions in the summer, the terrace can accommodate up to 60 guests while the indoor space is perfect for an evening of fine dining, board meetings or teambuilding sessions. Both are topped off with views over the iconic London skyline.
Events @ No 6 is located just a short walk from Aldgate and Aldgate East tube stations, in the centre of London.
