Last week, I had the pleasure of arranging a forum for around 50 work colleagues. Now, in many places, the options for a venue would probably include the local hall, a breakout room at the office and maybe some place no more than an hour’s bus or train ride away.
But in London, the choices are amazing. Last time we held this forum, we were able to hire Shakespeare’s Globe. A really nice venue, and it included a back stage tour.
This time, our options included Tate Modern, Vinopolis (a wine museum), the Energy Clinic and the one we chose, HMS Belfast.
HMS Belfast turned out to be a good choice. The day we held the forum happened to be the hottest day in London so far this year. Around 26 degrees. And we had a lovely venue right on the Thames, sunshine on the decks and veterans to conduct guided tours for us.
There are probably not that many cities in the world that offer such venue choices for conferences and meetings. One more great thing about London.
