London’s One Great George Street was among the winners at the Meetings & Incentive Travel Magazine Awards gala presentation dinner, held this week at the Novotel London West on Monday, February 23. At the prestigious ceremony, hosted by BBC radio and TV presenter Jeremy Vine, the historic venue in Westminster was recognised with Bronze Awards in the two categories of:
“Best UK Conference Centre” and “Best Conference & Banqueting Staff”
Speaking this week at International Confex, One Great George Street Director, Gary Payne, who attended the Awards Dinner, said: “This is particularly rewarding for us all here, as our venue has been nominated and recognised by clients themselves – there is no better endorsement than to receive an accolade such as this.”
Last autumn One Great George Street celebrated the completion of an extensive £1 million refurbishment programme to the main kitchen and enhancements to Brasserie One. Whatever the size of the event being held in one of the 19 rooms – ranging from a small meeting, or gala dinner – all food created for clients is produced in-house by the kitchen brigade at One Great George Street, using only the freshest and finest ingredients.
As a well-established, versatile meeting venue, there are a total of 19 meeting/function room at One Great George Street, with capacities from 6 to 400 - every room has a story to tell.. Two are fully-equipped presentation and lecture theatres, with cinema-style seating for 106 delegates in the Godfrey Mitchell Theatre and 240 in the Telford Theatre.
One Great George Street – home to the Institution of Civil Engineers – dating back to 1910, is an award-winning meeting, events and wedding venue, situated in the heart of Westminster, which offers first-class facilities and standards of service. Just a stone’s throw from the Houses of Parliament, this historic, four-domed Edwardian building is regarded as ‘one of London’s best kept secrets’. Its many fine rooms regularly entertain royalty, prominent political figures, business leaders and stars of film and theatre. World news has been broken, history has been made
