Budget Conference Venues Hire Guide

Whether you’re holding a large conference on a budget, a small networking meet-up, or a charity event, the first question that came to your mind was probably how much does it cost to rent a conference room? While this question is hard to answer in a few words, one thing is absolutely certain – conference hall hire in London can be more favourable than you may have expected! The key lies in knowing how to look for budget conference venues, which is made easier by our comprehensive list of cheap conference spaces. The icing on the cake? We’ve also compiled a handful of affordable conference venue hire tips for your reading pleasure:

  • Focus on minimum spend venues. Free conference venue hire is possible, even in central London! If you’re not really familiar with the minimum spend term, here’s a quick explanation: it means your only obligation is to spend a certain amount of money on food or beverages (or both). You don’t need to pay a single penny to hire the conference space, just for eating and drinking. Sounds fair, doesn’t it?
  • Or go the other way around and do it yourself, as much as you can. This option to keep you within your means is a dry-hire conference venue. With a dry hire venue, you pay for the conference space only, while the other aspects of the event (such as catering, drinks, and audiovisual system) are up to you. This solution gives you more flexibility in planning your conference expenses.
  • Look at all kinds of venues. Don’t be fooled into thinking you have to search only for bespoke conference venues, as there are a number of more unique conference spaces that can easily hold your event and offer you bang for your buck. Top alternative picks include university conference venues with their own lecture theatres, versatile and affordable meeting rooms that can be adapted for conference purposes, or cinemas and auditoriums with large screens and plenty of seating.
  • Take the road less travelled. Did you know that there are more modern conference venues in the suburbs of London than in the centre? Hiring a budget conference venue a bit further away from the hustle and bustle of the city has plenty of advantages. Obviously, these spaces are more affordable than the centric ones, but there’s way more to them than just that. Affordable conference venues on the outskirts of London usually offer outside areas that can be used for parking or serve as breakout spaces.
  • Cut down on square metres. It’s a common mistake to hire a conference venue you’re unable to fill. Nobody wants to pay for space they’re not going to use. So, what’s the solution? Wise planning is half the battle. If your budget is tight, look for a smaller conference venue that’s just the right size for the number of attendees you’re expecting.

FAQs about Affordable Conference Venues in London

What is the lowest price for hiring a conference venue in London?

The lowest price for hiring a conference venue in London is around £60-£90 per hour. However, these venues are rather small and usually not able to accommodate more than 30 people. Some of them also lack certain amenities such as catering facilities and parking spaces, which means that you will have to rent these separately. (All data from Tagvenue.)

How can I save money on hiring a conference venue in London?

We love a good bargain, and we know that you do too. We’ve scoured the city for the lowest conference venues in London, and we found that in order to get the best deal, you should look for venues that offer minimum spend. This means that you have to spend a certain amount of money on food and drink. It might seem a little bit inconvenient, but it will definitely save you some cash. If you’re looking for a place where you can host a conference and not break the bank at the same time, then we also recommend considering the size of the venue. You might think that the bigger the venue, the better. But this isn’t always true. If your group is relatively small, consider booking a venue that is not so large. This will give you a more personal setting that is perfect for the conference.

What are the most popular locations for holding conferences in London?

The West End has plenty of theatres and concert halls, and it's a great place to hold a conference focused on the arts or entertainment. If you're interested in a more traditional setting, look into Westminster and the City of London. These are nice places to hold a conference if you want to be near the action but have some peace and privacy. If your industry is related to science or technology, consider Southwark or Canary Wharf. You can also find plenty of conference venues in Kensington, Hammersmith and Ealing. These districts have a lot of character and offer a wide range of options. For even more affordable venues, look into Hounslow and Wandsworth. These are one of the cheapest districts in London, but they offer plenty of amenities and attractions. You can find some great conference venues in these areas that won't cost you an arm and a leg.

Guests Reviews of Conference Venues on Tagvenue

Gillian J.
Booked The Club Room at ISH Venues
The light and airy rooms and the set up of them to our requirements was great. staff were fantastic both at reception, and James who helped with the IT/screen set up. The catering was good too, and everything was fresh and flavourful and the clearing and setting up for our arrival, of lunch and monitoring the tea and coffee and water facilities was professional and discreet. An excellent venue that we will definitely look to use again.

The room was excellent, as was the service. It matched her requirements perfectly, and also it was airy, stylish and added to the event. I also appreciated the support we received from the venue employees who supported us throughout the day. Finally, the catering was of an excellent standard and the food was delicious! As a wheelchair user, I really appreciated the accessible parking that was made available for me.

The venue was absolutely excellent, especially for the price. The location couldn't be better - just by Victoria station and close to all the local amenities. The manager Georgina was fantastic to communicate with throughout and went out of her way to make our event a success. It was the best experience we have had with any venue and we would highly recommend to anyone.
