Park Plaza Westminster Bridge London increases Ballroom capacity due to rise in demand for AGMs


Aug 08, 2014 | News


Park Plaza Westminster Bridge London, the South Bank meetings and events destination, has introduced a new style of layout, increasing the capacity of the 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 of 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.”
