Hello! My name is Liz and I’m the newbie Venue Finding Co-ordinator at The Conference People. Having used the first four weeks of my new position to get to grips with such an exciting role, I couldn’t wait to have a whistle stop tour day in London visiting nine venues in one day. My colleague Hannah accompanied me, making sure I didn’t get lost and remembered to ask the important questions! We saw so many venues but my particular favourites have to be The Roof Gardens with the amazing view and their lovely flamingos....
Kensington Close who kindly supplied us with a yummy lunch and Holiday Inn Kensington Forum who offered us ice cream on a very hot day! But, with a surname like Rainbows it was hard not to feel at home in One Drummond Gate with its bright colours and open areas; the photo below shows the garden space at One Drummond Gate.
Here's to more exploring and learning!

The Hilton London Metropole is very grateful to have been given the opportunity to be part of this hugely successful event.
The Penguin Random House Group Conference 2015 held at the hotel was a large and important event for the Conference and Events Team. The event required months of extensive planning and needed detailed execution during the four days on site.
We enjoyed working with the organising company, The Conference People, who created a real team-focused atmosphere. The Conference People and the hotel worked as partners to achieve clear and realistic objectives.
It was very much an open working relationship; The Conference People with their experience of the Client's expectations and our team's experience of what works in our venue. This allowed the hotel to maintain Hilton values, whilst the event kept its identity. We were able to showcase our flexibility with the Family Service for 1,100 delegates on sprigs - something we hadn't done before!
I am able to state on behalf of the whole hotel team that we are very pleased and proud to have been involved in this event. We would like to extend our appreciation to The Conference People and Penguin Random House and hope to welcome them back to Hilton London Metropole again soon.
