Association events increased by a third between January and October this year, compared with the same period in 2014.
Medical and pharmaceutical related events in particular saw a steady rise, with 57% of all meetings held at the venue last December relating to these sectors.
The venue attributed the increase to last year’s high-profile celebrations for the 50th anniversary of its Grade-I-listed building by Sir Denys Lasdun and the its involvement in London’s Knowledge Quarter.
Natacha Allen, sales and marketing manager at the RCP, said: "We’re pleased to have had such success with the associations sector over the last 12 months. We’ve seen a great legacy from the 50th anniversary of our iconic building, which we celebrated last year, and the launch of the Knowledge Quarter has played an important part in the development of our offering in the heart of the educational hub."
Lauched by Chancellor George Osborne last December, the Knowledge Quarter (KQ) promotes the facilities, collections and expertise of 35 academic, cultural, research, scientific and media organisations based in Kings Cross, Euston and Bloomsbury.
The RCP offers 20 event spaces, including two tiered auditoria, the historic Dorchester Library suitable for drinks receptions for up to 200 guests, and the unique Council Chamber with its domed roof and hidden skylights.
