It’s Back to Business for {10-11} Carlton House Terrace

The 19th July was a date highly anticipated by all, the final stage of the UK government’s roadmap to reopening had finally arrived. At {10-11} Carlton House Terrace there was a huge sigh of relief that weddings booked after this date could continue with unrestricted plans, but like many London event venues – there has been a question mark surrounding the return of business events. 

With organisations having had 18 months meeting on zooms, teams and google hangouts – was this to be the new norm?  {10-11} doesn’t think so - with a 70% increase in business enquiries between April and June 2021, it’s a hugely positive sign that the industry is getting back to business.

“We’ve seen a huge jump in enquiries for meetings, conferences and AGMs, as well as more celebratory gatherings for summer and Christmas too! We’re getting lots of our regular clients confirming dates in early Autumn, and a surprising number of small meetings taking place across the Summer – we believe that businesses are eager to have people meeting in person once more and we couldn’t be happier to have our clients return to the building” – Amie Murphy, Venue Business Development and Marketing Manager

Returning to in-person meetings 

As planners, EAs, PAs and board secretaries make their case to return to live events – the focus shifts back to finding the perfect venue - It's paramount for event venues to confidently support the needs of their clients and communicate with confidence about the changing landscape of the events industry. 

{10-11} has certainly pivoted its products and services since the start of the pandemic and can say with confidence it has all of the right ingredients for a successful return to in person meetings and events. 

Start with a premier location in the heart of Westminster, add a delicious summer menu to delight delegates, throw in a comprehensive in-house hybrid AV offer to suit simple meetings and large panel conferences and finish with an eager and knowledgeable team on hand to help with planning and running the day – a certain recipe for success! 

seasonal parties

Seasonal Celebrations

And if meeting isn’t on your mind, there’s certainly an appetite to celebrate, with Summer and Christmas party enquiries increasing significantly. {10-11} have a wonderful opportunity for businesses to entertain their staff or clients in private gated garden in the heart of St James’s – or to enjoy a traditional Christmas feast, packaged with drinks and entertainment, of which {10-11} is already seeing key dates booking fast. Cheers to seasonal celebrations! 

A safe return

We know that whilst many are excited to get back to business, there is still some concern about hosting in-person events in a safe and secure way, and though the latest step of the roadmap removes all social distancing requirements, {10-11} has maintained some of its measures including continued mask wearing for staff, increased cleaning schedules and the continued availability of covid-safe menus for events. These measures continue to put the safety of staff and guests at the fore, whilst ensuring minimum to no impact on the experience of delegates and visitors.

Home of the British Academy, it’s a popular and historic location for conferences, meetings, AGMs, product launches as well as corporate parties and private dining. Find out more or email
