Space Matters

The most important thing to consider when planning any event, but particularly a corporate reception, is the amount of space you need. The space you’ll require for your event is determined largely by the size of your guest list. All our venues have maximum capacity sizes listed, you can find these on our venue pages.

Don’t forget to check the maximum capacity for seated or standing events, as your venue hire will be able to accommodate different sized guest lists depending on whether the event will be a corporate reception with networking or a seated event such as a conference. To find the best venue hire for your guest list size, fill in our enquiry form with your numbers and we’ll send back a list of venues which can accommodate your event.

Corporate Reception Catering

Food is always an important part of any event, and corporate events are no exception. If you’re planning a corporate reception you might want to serve lighter food such as canapés or bowl food. These catering options enable your guests to move around and speak to each other more easily.

For more substantial food you could consider food stalls, inspired by your favourite street food vendors. You could even host your corporate event at a venue with street food, such as Dinerama, a fantastic two-level summer and winter 1,000 capacity venue in the heart of Shoreditch.

Many corporate receptions include a seated lunch or dinner. If you’re considering this option get in touch with our team to find out more about bespoke event catering from our partner company, the award-winning London event caterer Create Food & Party Design.
