CCT Venues reopens Smithfield venue
CCT Venues, a conference, meetings and training venue specialist, reopened its Smithfield venue on 20January.
The venue is located above the Grade II listed Smithfield Market in Farringdon, London and has been hired exclusively by one client for the past five years.
It also has 13 meeting rooms across one floor, which has the capacity to host 190 delegates and features an open plan lounge and restaurant.
Its meetings rooms are now named around London’s Markets, such as Camden Lock, Billingsgate and Covent Garden. Each meeting room is fitted with new AV and furniture, which is made with 100% recycled materials.
The ‘Camden Lock’ room has been specifically designed for informal events. The room has access to a stocked mini fridge, sweet dispensers and a meeting table that can transform into a ping-pong table.
The food offering has also been themed around London’s food markets. CCT Venues has sourced its ingredients from suppliers who meet the highest standards in sustainability and animal welfare.
Caroline Bull, CEO, CCT Venues, said: “CCT Venues-Smithfield was our first venue, opening in April 2005. The location has always been quirky and a refreshing change from Corporate London. Being based above a vibrant working market is interesting and as the market traders work through the small hours of the morning and pack up as we as we start work, we enjoy the atmosphere but no disturbance. It is exciting to be bringing this characterful space back to the open market after five years of loyal service to one client.
“The whole of the CCT Venues team are excited about the refurbishment and relaunch, knowing that it will be a popular addition for our clients. The creation of the Camden Lock room and relaxing open plan restaurant and lounge areas are a nod to the changing tastes of today’s bookers, good service is expected but spaces also need to have the ability to stimulate and relax delegates, and we are confident that the new look venue will meet this brief."
