IET London: Savoy Place’s Riverside Room will begin an £280k upgrade to further enhance the room’s state-of-the-art AV and event offering, in July 2019.

The project will see the installation of two 4k video walls and two 4k LED screens, allowing the room to be used in full landscape format, giving every delegate full visibility.

New cameras will allow speakers or presenters to be filmed from any angle, and live relayed onto all screens in the room. New cutting-edge video mapping software will also be used to compose and manage multiple content across the screens. Meanwhile, enhancements to the audio system will allow for multiple mapping of the sound to different zones within the building, including the roof terrace.

Sean Spencer, Head of IET Venues said: “We’re constantly re-evaluating, upgrading and staying ahead of the game and the significant investment we have secured for this summer is another example of how we are future proofing our venues for our guests.

“We really want to give everyone who uses the venue the best possible experience when attending events and conferences with us. In addition to the AV upgrades, we have also developed new dining and conferencing packages to showcase the investments and further enhance our event offering.”

The Riverside Room at Savoy Place will be open for events from September 2019. Find out more and view new packages here, or learn more about the venue here.
