London stands shoulder to shoulder with the world’s cities at this difficult time. It’s important to reflect on the huge efforts the global community is taking to deal with the coronavirus and how we can all play our part.

In London, we’ve been touched by the extraordinary generosity of some of the capital’s major hotels and event spaces to help the National Health Service (NHS), and are proud to see our city pulling together in these challenging circumstances.

London hotels have been permitted to reopen, following the UK government guidelines. Meetings of up to 30 people indoors are allowed in permitted venues if social distancing can be maintained and the venue can demonstrate it has followed the COVID-19 guidance.

Support from the London Convention Bureau

Our team is here and ready to help. If you need advice on future enquiries, postponing, rebooking, setting up a remote conference, contacts or just want to chat about London we would be delighted to hear from you.

We are working closely with London hotels and venues to ensure they can still respond to enquiries, given not all will be open at this present time.
