IET London: Savoy Place has had a hugely successful year, with over 85,000 delegates passing through the venue’s doors to attend 2,600 events and a staggering 70% of repeat external client events.
Among the delegates arriving in 2019 were robots, hackers, global ambassadors and world leaders (including the Prime Minister), even a Princess graced the IET with their presence.
Savoy Place’s status as the go-to London STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) venue was further enhanced with £280k of investments to the AV and digital infrastructure in the Riverside Room. These improvements contributed to new and returning clients, particularly for tech and digital events, rising by 30%.
Sean Spencer, head of venues and facilities at IET Venues commented: “Every year we strive to better the last, and I’m pleased that Savoy Place has strengthened its position as a leading STEM venue. Financial and people investment mean that clients can rest assured that whatever sector they are from, they can take advantage of our state-of-the-art infrastructure. As we head into 2020, we’ll look forward to beginning the celebrations for the IET’s 150th anniversary in 2021.”
