Inmarsat launches refurbished London event space

Global satellite company Inmarsat has relaunched its event space in the City of London as '99 City Road', following a £350,000 investment.

Situated close to Old Street, the former Inmarsat Conference Centre has been upgraded to offer a range of meeting spaces, the largest of which can cater for up to 300 delegates.

The 1,587sqm of flexible floor space can be adapted to suit various event formats, from conferences, meetings and seminars to receptions, lunches and dinners.

The venue, which occupies the first floor of the headquarters of Inmarsat, was originally purpose-built to handle their large number of internal meetings, before becoming a hireable event space in 2001.

Lara Sucharov, manager of 99 City Road, said: "This is a significant investment and represents a marked change for the conference centre. The refurbishment has allowed us to improve on what we can offer and reaffirm our position as one of the City’s leading conference and event spaces - this has been reflected by the bookings we have already received for next year."
