Once in a while you stumble upon an events space that makes you doubt your self professed "first to know ALL the best London venues" self proclaimed title. I had heard of IET venues in London, Birmingham and Glasgow but I must profess, I had never arranged a site visit. I don't know why but thank goodness the lovely Emily reached out to Eventprofslive to see if we would like to hold one of our monthly networking events there to see the spaces! We loved it!!
The IET London, has recently undergone a 30 million pound refurbishment and if its unrivalled intelligent digital technology doesn't excite you then how about a roof terrace with views over London and based just a minute away from The Savoy on The Embankment.
The IET London has 18 very versatile event spaces for up to 200 people, most with natural daylight and a few with stunning views from private terraces over The River Thames and London. Further spaces include high tech boardrooms and screening rooms. You find an interactive guide to all of the 18 spaces here.
Our event started with drinks on arrival where we got to know Emily (our host from the IET) and a catch up with each other. One of our group had just been offered a new role, one was only a month in their new role and a few people hadn't seen each other for a while so it was great to catch up. After all the gossiping it was off on a tour of all the fabulous event spaces (glass in hand) before finishing on the roof terrace for an obligatory photo.
After our tour it was back to the first floor for more drinks and some lovely bowl food provided by their in-house caterer. The food was outstanding and very substantial and we loved it. The in-house caterer at The IET London is Harbour and Jones and in terms of pricing for your event, all of the pricing is all-inclusive and transparent which means no nasty surprised on your invoice post-event.
We really enjoyed our site visit and networking event with The IET London and hand on heart, the next day I put in an inquiry for an event I am working on. The spaces are really fabulous, the food wonderful and the location and views from the meeting and events spaces will wow any of your delegates!
