Florence Hall boasts high ceilings and large windows opening onto a roof terrace. A personal event manager and the use of the auditorium’s audio-visual equipment is also available.

RIBA has launched a day delegate package (DDR) for up to 400 delegates.

Stephanie Ellrott, head of venues at RIBA, said: "This double first helps conferences to enjoy the very best of RIBA. We have also included access to our seasonal exhibitions which provide a great talking point for delegates, as they can appreciate displays of architecture design and craftsmanship from around the world. There are also no extra hidden costs in our first ever DDR and all profits from events at our venue go back into supporting the work of the RIBA charity and its role in supporting British architectural talents."

The package offers full catering for the day (including Danish pastries, biscuits and homemade cookies) with a standing hot buffet lunch.
