EventsHere is East London’s newest and most versatile events space, prominently located at Here East. Based in London’s Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, Here East is a 1.2 million sq ft campus for the creative and digital industries. Formerly the Press and Broadcast Centre, used during the 2012 London Olympics, EventsHere consists of 37,000 square feet of prime event space and is a place of immense opportunity. EventsHere lends itself perfectly to creativity and is ideal for film screenings, art installations, product launches, conferencing, award shows, TED-style talks, employee engagement, hustings, dinners and parties.
The launch of EventsHere saw local businesses and event managers come together to explore the enormous space, whilst enjoying cocktails and a BBQ on the private roof terrace. The roof terrace offers a panoramic view across the city and the landscaped canal side below. Onsite catering at EventsHere is provided by highly acclaimed event caterers Moving Venue by Smart and overseen by head chef Simon Packer. The launch event provided the perfect backdrop to showcase Moving Venue by Smart’s delicious food and service. Guests tucked into char grilled lamb fillets with salsa verde, buttermilk fired chicken with kimchee mayo in a brioche roll and freshly cooked pumpkin tortelloni with sage butter and crushed amaretti. Desserts included Eton mess, summer pudding and lemon posset with lavender shortbread.
Richard Beggs, Managing Director of Moving Venue by Smart, said: “I am delighted Moving Venue by Smart are the exclusive event caterers at EventsHere and we look forward to working closely with the team at Here East. This is a fantastic opportunity to showcase our capabilities and provide clients with exceptional food and seamless service in a venue located in one of London’s most exciting developments.”
Here East CEO Gavin Poole said: “We are very pleased to see EventsHere open its doors, and we are excited to be working closely with the Smart Group on this project. Our events space is a cornerstone of Here East. We want businesses and organisations, large and small, to come together, collaborate and prosper. EventsHere is the perfect venue to share ideas, showcase concepts and innovations, and act as a window to the future.”
