De Vere in London expansion

De Vere Venues is to open its second non-residential property in London this year. The move follows on from the high demand for quality training, conference and meeting venues. The 1950s venue, in Portland Place, West End, will open on 10 September and comprise 3,251sqm of meetings space spread over seven floors. It will offer conference facilities and multi-sized training and meeting rooms. The largest meeting room will be able to accommodate 250 delegates. De Vere bought the property in December and a major refurbishment started in January. De Vere Collection chief operating officer Tony Dangerfield said: “We have seen an extensive demand for high quality training, conference and meeting facilities in central London at our De Vere Venue Holborn Bars. The development of our second De Vere venue in London’s West End is a stepping stone in establishing our non-residential offering and we envisage this new property being a real hit with businesses looking for space in an easily accessible, professional but relaxed environment.” The De Vere Collection, formed in September following the Alternative Hotel Group’s takeover of De Vere Group, has a portfolio of more than 40 properties throughout the UK, under the De Vere Venues, De Vere Heritage and De Vere Deluxe brands.
