High profile awards ceremonies, product launches and annual conferences on the rise
South Kensington based venue the Science Museum reveals a 160% increase in major event bookings following last year’s £1.7m investment in its corporate events spaces.
Since transforming the Museum’s IMAX cinema and the Level 1 space for corporate hire, the venue has seen a significant increase in demand for large scale events such as annual conferences, awards ceremonies and product launches. Events of this kind comprised 36% of the venue’s delivered events last year, equating to an overall growth of over 160% from 2011 to 2012.
Last year, the Science Museum invested circa £1.7 million in the refurbishment of its facilities, including the installation of new equipment for the IMAX cinema, renovations of the exterior and main concourse, as well as the installment of façade lighting, new reception desks and additional digital signage throughout the venue to enhance the corporate events offering.
