The London venue has reported an increase in demand for events space and corporate hospitality from both UK and international clients since July 2016.
The trend seems to be sweeping across the capital, with London’s convention bureau, London & Partners, announcing a 41% increase in enquiries.
Simon Hunter, head of venue & brand at Chelsea Football Club, said: "Since the EU referendum result in June, the value of the pound has fallen by 10%, which has resulted in the ‘Brexit-Boom’, an occurrence that has been widely reported by UK media. A rise in inbound tourism, paired with an increase of staycations, means that London is busier than ever."
He added that the venue was very much in support of the #LondonIsOpen campaign, launched by London Mayor, Sadiq Khan.
"Our business development team embarked on a sales tour in July, visiting US cities including Los Angeles, Detroit, Minneapolis and New York, actively targeting corporate event planners. Whilst no one can predict what the future holds for the industry as the government negotiates our exit from the European Union, it’s essential that businesses aren’t panicked into making knee jerk reactions. It’s time for us to continue to consolidate our offer and take a considered and coordinated strategic approach to communicating that offer positively to the global market."
