Technology is expected to play a bigger part in future trends among venues, with some having already invested, or expecting to invest in technology in the coming months, including features such as Apple TV, interactive social media, live web links and streaming and projection mapping.

Many venues say they are also seeing interesting breakthroughs in delegate management systems, locator functions and beacon technology.

On the CSR side, ExCeL London says it is seeing a return to organisers being more environmentally aware and building some of their organisation around the venue's CSR capabilities.

"The science behind food and beverage provision is becoming more important to event planners, in particular conference organisers, and we are evolving our food and beverage provision to meet these changing needs," says Lucy Merritt, marketing manager at ExCeL London.
