Conferences at the British Library

The Conference Centre at the British Library underwent a refurbishment during the early months of 2011 and is now proud to present itself as a world-class conferencing facility. 

The modernised auditorium can accommodate up to 255 delegates, with facilities for simultaneous translation, film, sound and video presentation. In addition, there are five comfortable and individually designed meeting rooms allowing for 80 to 100 delegates. All rooms have natural daylight, electronic blackout blinds, climate control and sound proofing. Our experienced AV team will also be on-hand to offer technical support to ensure seamless delivery. The Conference Centre can also be used for a range of formal events, such as product launches, lectures and private screenings.

The British Library Conference Centre is in close proximity to the Eurostar Terminal at St. Pancras International  and within easy walking distance of Euston and  Kings Cross railway stations and six tube lines. The sophisticated space is therefore ideally located in the centre of London’s extensive transportation network.

I would like to say a big thank you to you and your team for the way that you looked after us yesterday at our annual conference.

The venue is superb and your team equally so. Jose looked after us brilliantly and Ed and Tom did a great job at the bar and serving canapés. Our survey scored you as 100% excellent or very good.

Rupert Miles, Jan 2015

I just wanted to thank you...for your support over the past months in helping to bring the whole day to a success. Without your help and expertise it would have been difficult to ensure the smooth running of the conference.

We have had such positive feedback with not only how delegates enjoyed the speakers’ presentations but they though the British Library was a superb venue and also food just excellent.

I cannot thank you and your staff enough for all their hard work throughout the day. Nothing was too much trouble for them and they were always happy and accommodating.

Irene Wellman, EUSSER, October 2012.

"Thank you so much for yesterday. It went really well. Everyone really enjoyed the food. The fruit was great, the sandwiches were delicious, the cakes were amazing and the baps went down a storm!”

Robyn Kimber, Virgin Management Ltd, June 2011

“Please thank all your staff, especially the chefs as the food was wonderful. I have recommended the venue to lots of people- the staff could not have been more helpful and everyone thought it was an excellent meeting.”

Jean Machin, BHST, October 2010

“Thank you so much, the British Library really is the perfect venue and it was great to be able to hold our conference there.”

Emma Knight, Stagecoach Group, October 2010

"I wanted to thank you very much for your assistance during our meetings at the British Library last week- it was a complete success!
Thank you for putting up with our last minutes changes- you were so efficient. I can't thank you enough, you made my job on the day so easy. Next time we are in London I will be sure to utilise your services and I will also be sure to recommend your venue to other colleagues"
