High levels of apply-ance at the Science Museum

The Science Museum in South Kensington has seen an increase in demand for daytime events following last year’s announcement of its new venue space Illuminate.

The multi-function events venue will open in February 2019, and opened for booking this past June. Since then, it has received over 100 enquiries including conferences, exhibitions and product launches – with an average delegate number of 250.

Illuminate is situated on levels four and five of the Science Museum and will be available for both daytime and evening hire for capacities of up to 400 for dinners and conferences and 450 for receptions. 

One of the unique features of the new space will be a panoramic window on level five offering stunning views of the City and an abundance of natural daylight, a key element in ensuring a productive meeting or conference experience.

Ben Lheureux, head of events and catering at the Science Museum Group, says: “Illuminate will be one of the first of its kind in the unique venue industry, and will enable us to meet increased demand for a fully dedicated conference and events space within the museum. 

“With the help of Moving Venue and White Light we’ll be able to offer streamlined event packages ensuring a convenient and cost-effective booking process for clients. 

“Since we opened the diary for bookings at The Meetings Show in June we have received a significant number of enquires for 2019, particularly in regard to daytime events. We look forward to officially opening and welcoming a range of daytime conferences, product launches, exhibitions and awards dinners booked to use our flexible space.”
