London's Barbican Sees £1 million of Enquiries in First Two Weeks of 2015

Barbican, one of Europe’s largest combined conference and arts venues, is predicting a big year of business events, with £1 million of enquiries made within the first two weeks of 2015.

The Guildhall School of Music & Drama’s Milton Court as well as unique spaces like the Conservatory and Barbican Hall have seen an increase in business events being held at the Barbican over the past year, with the latest enquiries strengthening its position as Europe’s largest combined arts and conference venue.

In a statement, Jackie Boughton, Barbican’s head of sales, acknowledged that enquiries don’t always mean confirmed business, the uptick in interest confirms the venue's increased visibility within the industry. "We continue to successfully raise our profile and this has been key to the level of enquiries we have experienced within the first weeks of 2015.”

Barbican is located in the City of London and can accommodate meetings of as many as 2,000 delegates in its concert hall, theatres, conference suites and boardrooms. The spaces can be adjusted using sound proofed sliding partitions. 

Unlike many other venues, Barbican, which received AIM Gold in 2014, was specifically built with the dual purpose of holding conferences and arts events.
