Having put on one of the greatest shows ever – the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games – London really has proved that it has what it takes to thrill the world. Since then, the excitement has kept on building.
London has benefited from huge amounts of investment, creating better and greener transport links, a greater range of accommodation, and regenerated areas full of new attractions, venues and restaurants.
Added to this is London peerless heritage: delegates are invited to explore 2,000 years of dazzling living history, including royal palaces and parks, and world class-museums and galleries, many of which are free.
London also provides unbeatable value, since its wide variety of venues, accommodation and activities offer something to suit every budget. The city is at the heart of Europe's low-cost airline network, and its five international airports connect to more than 300 international destinations.
Making the case for London
London's combination of strengths make it an ideal destination for international events:
- The most connected city on the planet, with direct flights to 380 destinations
- Unparalleled cultural offering, including three of the world's top five museums
- A greater breadth of unique spaces than any other city
- Over 139,000 hotel rooms from budget to five star
No other city on the planet matches London for energy, diversity, creativity and constant reinvention.
"London has huge cachet thanks to its unique venues and culture. It's such a vibrant world city, businesses cannot help but feel motivated and inspired here."
