Purpose built International conferencing venue in London


The ICO Conference Centre is one of the UK’s leading purpse-built establishments for hosting inteational business events.  It has a wonderful range of rooms, all stylishly designed and decorated, and boasting maximum natural light, high ceilings and a comprehensive range of technology and facilities.  The room layouts are designed to please even the most demanding delegate, providing unrivalled sightlines, elbow room, comfort and catering.  This corporate venue also features a unique state of the art simultaneous translation microphone management system – the only one of it’s kind in the UK – with over 100 microphones built into the desks in the Conference Suite, allowing delegate participation without roving microphones. 

The comparable range of conference and meeting facilities at ICO are tailored to the needs of inteational organisations.  Adapters, plug-ins, excellent high-speed WiFi and an enormous capacity for electrical goods make this a truly convenient, familiar and practical space for inteational delegates.

The venue boasts crystal clear LCD projectors, screens and monitors.  Fantastically user friendly yet highly complex bits of kit put your presenters in command of both computer and DVD inputs during their presentation, as well as the ability to control the audio and lighting levels.  An AV technician/operator could be at your service throughout your event, but they will also just give you a short lesson on how to operate the equipment prior to your function, if you’d like to take the reigns during proceedings!  Your conference at ICO can also be MP3 recorded – and you also have the option to go online with Polling, Web Streaming and Rich Media capture all readily available at this accomplished conferencing venue. 

If you book your event at ICO in January or February 2014, you will receive 25% off daily delegate rates!  Your room hire price also includes a continental breakfast, a 3 course lunch in private room followed by cakes, pastries and energy bars, unlimited tea, coffee and both still & sparkling water, complimentary WiFi, stationery packs for your delegates, and flip charts. 

The ground floor of this fabulous contemporary venue houses the Council Chamber, which seats 277 delegates and is accessible both through the welcoming Reception, and via a loading bay.  The Conference Lounge provides the perfect break out space, and has a stylish bar and plenty of seating. 

The 1st floor plays host to one of the most stunning boardrooms in the city, able to seat 21 to 122 people.  The Foyer has a cleverly laid out Registration Area, a cloakroom and plenty of space for break outs.

Upstairs on the 2nd floor, 2 fully equipped but much smaller meeting rooms able to hold 25 to 60 people, are perfect for corporate away days, brainstorms and small meetings. 

If you and your colleagues are craving an informal drink after a day of having your corporate hat on, we recommend you throw your jeans and t-shirts on, and go for drinks and dinner just a 5min walk away from the ICO, at The Adam And Eve.  Here you will find hearty and generously proportioned food, at affordable prices, served by enthusiastic staff in a totally relaxed atmosphere.

Then, if you’ve like to splash out on accommodation that is certain to encourage you to unwind, have a look at The Sanderson Hotel – also just a 5min walk away!  This self-proclaimed Urban Spa will provide you with ultimate comfort, Zen and restoration in it’s earthly, uncluttered and tranquil rooms.  Specifically designed as a retreat from the city outside, this is a hotel that is sure to re-charge your batteries and send you, with a full stomach after your healthy and tasty breakfast, out into London’s moing sun with a fresh face and a bushy tail.
