The 453-room hotel and 4,500sqm conference centre will host the 2016 event on 17-18 May, after securing the London event from its previous location in the capital’s west end.
Procurement Leaders worked with venue placement agency pro-ven to choose the property, which needed to be a large, flexible, meeting space with excellent transport links for more than 700 delegates.
For two days, the World Procurement Congress will take over the hotel’s conference centre including the 3,100sqm of pillar-free space in the Arora Ballroom.
Chris Edwards, Procurement Leaders’ head of operations, said: "Having held discussions with the team at pro-ven and the InterContinental London – The O2 during its pre-opening phase, we are now really looking forward to holding the event in what is already fast becoming the capital’s most exciting new venue. The sheer scale of the events space, along with its unique position on the river, provides us with a phenomenal new all-round events proposition for the congress to ensure it can continue to grow year on year."
