Fashion trend-forcasters, WGSN held their Futures Awards 2016 here at 8 Northumberland Avenue.
The star-studded event was held over two days with celebrity guests such as Fearne Cotton.
"WGSN futures is now a global series encompassing New York, Sydney, Auckland, Sao Paolo and Istanbul. So being in a central London venue in our home market was essential and 8 Northumberland Avenue delivered that."
As WGSN had celebrity guests and media, it was important that the venue was easy to locate. Being a central London venue paid homage to where WGSN all started even though they are now a worldwide brand.
"The combination of event space and location was critical for us. And the 8 Northumberland Avenue team also really understood the style of event we wanted to put on and made the space work for us."
"The space was really one of the major selling points as we had the wonderfully grand main Ballroom plus the Old Billiard Room, Annex and the breakout spaces for drinks and separate work streams. There was also plenty of back office space, it worked really well."
Having multiple spaces that were easy to navigate between was an important factor. 8 Northumberland Avenue could provide that as well as being a blank canvas and the most central London venue.
"The social aspect of the event is critical for us as a creative business. And we were really pleased that the Wi-Fi worked really well to facilitate fantastic social media coverage.”
As 8 Northumberland Avenue is pioneering in technology such as an intelligent light system, 3D holographic’s and the first venue to create a virtual reality venue video, it could provide and support all technical needs.
For the best venue hire London has, look no further.
