Each week, we pick one of our favourite venues and explain why it’s made the cut

Museum of Brands - venue hire

As the world’s only brand heritage venue, the Museum of Brands, Packaging and Advertising is unmatchable in the backdrop it offers to event organisers. Last year, it reopened in an attractive art-deco building in Notting Hill. It has a whopping 16,000 original consumer items on display, many of which are found in the new and improved Time Tunnel space. 
 
What’s so good about it? 
The big draw for corporate events is its Branding Hall. In here, guests are surrounded by displays of brands and explanations of their histories, as well as temporary exhibitions. Elsewhere, the conference suite – with floor-to-ceiling windows and artificial glass flooring – is a playful space for creative business sessions.  The newest available space is the boardroom where up to 12 can gather for small meetings. Plus, it has its own kitchen area, making it a budget-friendly option.
 
Why do bookers love it? 
Hiring the venue for the evening gives event bookers exclusive access to three diverse areas for a well-rounded event. Meetings and sit-down dinners are best suited to the Branding Hall, while a drinks reception can be held in the Time Tunnel filled with 100 years-worth of branding items. Guests will also appreciate the opportunity for fresh air in the courtyard garden among perennials and sub-tropical plants. A real night at the museum, if you will.
