C&IT was lucky enough to be invited to visit the home of the Institution of Engineering and Technology, which is situated next to the River Thames and has a total of 21 meetings spaces across four floors, all available for corporate hire.

The largest of these is the main theatre, which can seat up to 451 people and has built-in plug sockets next to every seat. The venue also has an in-house A/V team and hanging rails in the theatre to allow for quick changes of branding for corporate clients. The Riverside room, which can be hired alongside the rooftop terrace, has the largest standing space, accommodating up to 330 people.

According to Simon Timmis, senior marketing manager at IET Venues and Events, the refurbishment has modernised the building, whilst maintaining its heritage. Throughout the IET there are three interactive displays, including a wall of 100 items that engineers believe have ‘changed the world’.
