WPP 30th AGM

WPP chose to host their annual general conference at 8 Northumberland Avenue in June 2015. A world leader in marketing communications as well as the most effective holding company in the world, WPP also celebrated its 30th anniversary this year

The Objective:

  • To source a central London location so our shareholders could access our event with ease
  • Good access to the venue to enable our large production set to be created
  • A dedicated hardwired line to ensure our share owner webcast stream was stable

Was the venue’s location suitable for your event?

“The venue’s location was ideal for our event”

8 Northumberland Avenue’s central London location was very convenient. Guests made use of a wide variety of transport options to arrive promptly, and everyone could get home with ease at the conclusion of the conference.

How did the venue’s technology contribute to your event?

"The Intelligent Lighting system added value by enhancing architectural features of the room"

Having the Intelligent Lighting system within the venue saved WPP from having to provide their own basic lighting equipment. The conference venue was able to provide dedicated, hardwired internet access and telephone lines, and the size of the event space meant that production equipment could be quickly and easily installed.


Did the event space fulfil your requirements?

“The space in the venue worked well for our event” 

Close to 300 guests as well as a sizable amount of AV equipment could be accommodated thanks to the size of the conference space. Both the Ballroom and the Old Billiard Room were used by the clients for their event, with press and registrars also in attendance.

Was your event a success?

“It was an honour to work with your team last week for our annual general conference. Your team anticipated our needs and everything we asked for was dealt with efficiently”.

The conference was well attended; guests enjoyed the venue and were pleased with the menu and food quality. Planning and coordination were key concerns because of the importance of the conference and the amount of preparation work required from multiple organizations. Thanks to the proactive approach of event planners and dedication of the venue team, 

WPP’s conference went seamlessly and their objectives were entirely met.
