Park Plaza Westminster Bridge London Responds to Rise In Demand for Annual General Meeting Space


Sep 03, 2014 | Blog

Park Plaza Westminster Bridge London, the South Bank meetings and events destination, has introduced a new style of layout, increasing the capacity of their renowned Westminster Ballroom by 150 delegates to 2,000 for a theatre-style set up following an increase in requests for hosting Annual General Meetings (AGM).

The upper-scale hotel is already one of the largest event spaces available in London and over the past six months the venue recognised an influx in requests for AGMs for stand-alone conference space and receptions of up to 2,500 guests. 

Daniel Pedreschi, General Manager, Park Plaza Westminster Bridge London commented: “We have reviewed our reception and event areas following the increase in demand and client feedback and now offer space for a higher delegate capacity and tailor-made parties with exclusive entertainment zones. These will be spaced across different floors, which range from street food style pop-ups and food halls to the classic reception drinks area.”  

Fiona Plumpton, Head of Convention Bureau Services at London & Partners, added: “Extending the ballroom capacity of the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge to 2,000 is a very welcome addition to London’s venue portfolio. This is the first purpose-built extension to a hotel space in central London for conferences and events hosting between 1,300 and 2,500 delegates. This increase in capacity vastly enhances our offer for events of this size and we look forward to introducing our clients to the new venue.”

Park Plaza Westminster Bridge London is an iconic all-in-one meetings and events solution with AIM gold accreditation. The 1,200-square-metre pillar-free Westminster Ballroom is complemented by convenient ‘layered’ conference floors and intimate City Boardrooms. Complimentary Wi-Fi, coach parking, group check-in desks and high-level security are available, as are 1,019 guestrooms and a range of dining options.
