Your venue for a London awards event - things to consider:

We’ve put together some key information on what to consider when searching for the best venues when planning an awards ceremony or dinner in London.

Hybrid ready

There has been an increasing focus on virtual and hybrid events following the reliance on virtual events during the pandemic. We predict that this will be a lasting focus and a need for venues that can combine live audiences with the ability to stream content to those unable to attend. The ability to have award winners dialling in and extending the reach of the awards by live streaming to a wider audience are increasingly important factors in any event’s success and reach. Hybrid award formats are becoming increasingly popular when selecting your awards venues in central London. Reducing UK and international travel to business events will also be on many major UK businesses' sustainability agendas.

Seating capacity

When looking to find the most suitable awards venue, you need to establish the best seating style for your event, since this will affect the capacity of the space.  Most awards dinners use banqueting tables, and you need to ensure that the venue can deliver to your maximum potential capacity, since you don’t want to turn away potential table sales.  Some larger venues offer event spaces including tiered seating, which improves sight lines and will result in greater audience engagement.

Venue location

The location of the venue will be one of the key drivers for a high level of attendance. So, when considering where the best awards venues for your needs are located, remember London has excellent public transport facilities. Make sure the venue offers good connectivity to these networks to ensure ease of travel for your delegates.

AV facilities

Wherever possible, try to use events venues that have in-house projection and sound systems within their main event space. The price of bringing these into your conference rooms can often exceed that of the room hire, and there is generally less risk and preparation time involved by using a venue that is already set up to host large projections required for most awards ceremonies (and make sure that your table centres do not block the sight lines to the stage and screen!).

Unique awards venues in London

For more prestigious ticketed or industry awards where you are trying to attract high priced table sales, you may wish to consider more bespoke high profile London Hotel or historic event spaces, which tend to deliver greater sales and attendance rates. Unlike modern venues, many of the more bespoke and historic London options do not have in-house audio-visual facilities, so it’s best to get prices for these additional production requirements before you book. Do also make sure that the contract includes enough time to set up and break down this production.

Residential London awards venues

You can also consider looking to hire hotel conference rooms in London, as many top hotels offer reception and dining spaces as well as in-house catering at reasonable prices – all of these are included in a set dinner package. Always check what is included in these rates and get prices for any extras that you may need. With so many available hotels in London, the ability to offer on-site accommodation is a special benefit for a national awards dinner or ceremony in London.


London is one of the greenest capitals in the world. As sustainability becomes an increasingly important global focus, you may be looking for a venue that places it as high on their list of priorities as you do. We’re here to assist in finding a venue to host your conference that can also assist you in meeting your sustainability goals. From ensuring that food and drink is sourced locally to the use of low energy and LED event lighting, there are now many sustainable London venues that have risen to the challenge and offer some great green initiatives.

Best value awards venues

If you are looking for a more budget-friendly awards venue for an internal event, Central London has plenty of great event spaces that are generally used for internal staff events and meetings. Be careful to check what is included in these cheaper venue packages and that your chosen venue is close to an underground station to ensure these offer genuine value.

Start your London awards venue search

When it comes to finding the very best awards venues, London has literally hundreds of options. For larger London awards venues (over 300 attendees), check out our pick of Large London Venues for the best selection of venues that meet greater space needs.

Using Venue Search London is a huge help to me, particularly in the circumstances of this particular event which I was managing on my own. With the number of venues across London it is extremely time consuming trying to search for one which meets all/most of the criteria required. Taking this part of the event management off my hands is such a massive help! For this particular search, you worked really hard to find a venue that was suitable for us, and even though there was such limited availability for the day we wanted you ended up finding us one which was pretty much perfect in terms of what we needed and came in within our budget – thank you! While we don’t host a huge number of events in London and I can’t promise to give you lots of business in future, I would not hesitate to contact you again to ask for your assistance when next required and also to recommend you to EA/PA colleagues outside of UK Sport. This is the second time I have used Venue Search London and both times have been fantastic.
