The Barbican Centre is the jewel in London's artistic crown, with its theatres, concert halls, art galleries and cinema providing a year-round programme of events. Adjoining the complex, the huge Barbican Conference Centre offers versatile accommodation for events of every type. At the heart of the conference floor are two large suites with sound proofed sliding partitions providing space for up to 170 delegates in theatre style. Alternatively, these suites can be divided into six separate rooms for smaller groups. A dedicated boardroom is also available for the most formal meetings and there are three presentation cinemas. Cinema 1 is the ideal venue for private film screenings, and can be combined with a dinner or drinks in the Garden Room and Conservatory. Great transport links, a location close to the financial city and the kudos associated with the Barbican's links to London's celebrated arts scene, as well as excellent customer care for first-time exhibitors, make this a much sought-after conference venue.
