Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) – Westminster, London
We are really focussed on doing reviews of restaurants and bars but I thought to make a special mention of a location for events that has really thought about their acoustics: Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS). Their headquarters offer magnificent views of Parliament Square and have some truly beautiful rooms for events. But what is even more noteworthy is the fact that even if their building is grade II listed they have worked hard to make the acoustics of their space work and even when hosting a cocktail reception people can truly make conversation.
I have been to hundreds of events and organize quite a few regularly myself and so really appreciate the thoughtfulness of this. There is really very little point in organizing a networking event if people can’t even make basic conversation.
Well done RICS! Hope there will be other venues that will think about it too. And should they wish to explore the topic we are happy to help!
