EventsHere is East London’s newest and most versatile events space, prominently located at Here East, a 1.2 million sq ft campus for the creative and digital industries, located in London’s Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. Formerly the Press and Broadcast Centre, used during the 2012 London Olympics, EventsHere consists of 37,000 square feet of prime event space and is a place of immense opportunity.
EventsHere lends itself perfectly to creativity and is ideal for film screenings, art installations, product launches, conferencing, award shows, TED-style talks, employee engagement, hustings, dinners and parties.
The launch of EventsHere saw local businesses and event managers come together to explore the impressive space, whilst enjoying cocktails and a BBQ on the private roof terrace. The roof terrace offers a panoramic view across the city and the landscaped canal side below. Onsite catering at EventsHere is provided by highly acclaimed event caterers Moving Venue by Smart and overseen by head chef Simon Packer.
