. Champagne corks were popping on Friday 18th September as One Great George Street scooped ‘The World’s Most Prestigious Conference Venue’ award against tough competition from fellow finalists The Savoy and Dubai’s Burj Al Arab.
One Great George Street’s Marketing Manager Katie McCarthy (featured) was presented the award at a glittering ceremony hosted by the global Prestigious Star Awards; in celebration of the quality, performance and reputation of the world’s most reputable venues.
McCarthy said: “One Great George Street is honoured to have been recognised as ‘The World’s Most Prestigious Conference Venue’ up against over 2000 applicants and tough competition from our fellow finalists The Savoy and Dubai’s Burj Al Arab. As a venue, we are very fortunate to boast a prestigious address, a stunning historic building and state-of-the-art facilities ideal for conferences. However, as is often the case; it is something far more personal to which we owe this award. Our people. And I’d like to take this opportunity to thank both the people who have experienced our services and taken the time to vote, and our internal team at One Great George Street who strive to exceed expectations every day! Thank you – this award’s for you.”
Jessamie Dunton-Rose, Operations Director at Prestigious Venues added: "One Great George Street is the ideal conference venue due to its high spec technical capabilities, professional events team and excellent location in the heart of London. The venue's range of event spaces and theatres also provides flexibility for event bookers who are looking to host a conference, something that was repeatedly mentioned during the voting process."
In addition to scooping ‘The World’s Most Prestigious Conference Venue’ award, One Great George Street was also recognised in two other categories: Most Prestigious Meeting Venue and Most Prestigious Fashion Event Venue in recognition of its excellence in these areas.
One Great George Street’s Director Gary Payne noted: “One Great George Street heavily invests in both its people and its physical asset, and we’re delighted to have been honoured with such a notable title. As a highly versatile venue suitable for a broad range of diverse markets, it’s great to be recognised as a leader in different market categories – conferences, meetings and fashion.”
