Screening rooms in London come in all shapes and sizes, and as our needs have progressed, so have the venues. Gone are the days of flipcharts, handouts and various placards to work as visuals for important speeches and presentations; now, high definition technology is in, and we want it in rooms that can cater to any size. In fact, sometimes it goes beyond needing a small screen, and you require a cinema room with staggered seating for the masses, which is no mean feat in a city where space is hard to come by.
For smaller events and meetings, sometimes just an overhead projector will do, to allow for a classic PowerPoint presentation using plug-and-play connectivity. However, things to consider go beyond just screen size, as lighting and acoustics come into play, with London venues offering everything from theatre spaces that are built for sound to travel, to smaller meeting rooms that rely on simply projecting your voice.
Of course, if you’re looking to feed your guests, then this is another thing to take into account when booking your venue, as options vary between just a room, small buffets, and full blown banquets. Feeling fancy? You’ll even find options at a five star hotel where you can combine your presentation or awards ceremony with a fine dining lunch.
