So, it needs training, conference, meeting and event space that meets the very high expectations of some of the UK’s most high-profile corporates, as well as the requirements of a range of other business – and budgets.
Luckily the Wharf has its own dedicated provider of space for meetings and events, in the shape of the ‘CCT Venues Plus’ arm of our successful London meeting space business.
Building on the brand
CCT Venues has been operating successfully in London for over a decade and won a long list of committed long-term clients through our friendly, supportive customer service and ability to provide all the modern facilities today’s training, conference and event organisers’ need.
We also understand that the way to customers’ hearts is through their stomachs. So, we’ve created an in-house catering team led by award-wining chef Jamian LewisJamian Lewis. He ensures there’s always a wide choice of freshly prepared hot food and salads for delegates to tuck into, using top quality ingredients, as well as delicious and nutritious snacks throughout the day.
The CCT Venues Plus brand was created specifically for venues in the Wharf, providing an extra level of superior space and facilities, for meetings, events and corporate hospitality in Canary Wharf.
“I founded CCT Venues on the principle that the conference, training and meeting room business is as much about people as it is about facilities, like AV equipment and comfortable chairs,” explains founder and Chief Executive Caroline Bull.
“When we opened our venues in the Wharf we recognised that this unique business quarter needs a training and event partner that understands it’s particular needs – and that’s where the ‘Plus’ brand came in.”
A venue with a view
Located opposite Canary Wharf Underground, one venue is on the top floor of 40 Bank Street and has incredible views across the whole of London and beyond. It also has a dedicate suite with its own lounge for clients who want private space for conferences, events and hospitality.
Hosting events for up to 300 people as well as smaller meetings and training events, it has over 20 rooms, a large restaurant and the Sunset Bar. “The whole space has been designed to a really high specification,” adds Caroline, “It’s consistent with the best design in corporate space, has floor-to-ceiling windows to show off the views, and it’s perfect for receptions and hospitality.”
From big conferences to fantastic Christmas parties
CCT Venues Plus-South Quay is located minutes from South Quay DLR station, has over 25 rooms, a spacious, contemporary restaurant and a conference suite which can host 400.
As well as being popular for assessment centres and training programmes, it’s going to be busy again this year hosting Christmas parties and dinners for the Wharf festive revellers.
