Convene have opened their first venture outside the United States, the ‘meeting and workday experiences’ provider choosing London (specifically 22 Bishopsgate) as home for their 50,000 square foot venue that comprises meeting and conference rooms, high-end gallery areas and a fully-equipped auditorium-style space; each designed to support the post-pandemic way of working.
Bringing a new model of meeting and workspace to the UK, Convene enables businesses to bring teams together, and retain and develop their company ethos through the use of design, technology, and hospitality; the London location is also intended to be flexible to suit events of various sizes and purpose.
Designed by architecture and interiors practice, Woods Bagot, the space is an empowering environment, its private members’ style club concept offering access to the open-plan social/workplace area including nine state of the art conference rooms for team and client meetings, presentations and private dining, providing a design-led, curated offering for the UK’s capital.
Inspired by the City of London, design fuses influences from the City’s traditional livery companies with the contemporary design found in the latest architecture in the Square Mile to create the concept of the ‘Modern Livery’, as well as providing a wonderfully-designed environment operated according to high-end hospitality principles.
Matthew Moran, formerly head chef at The Hoxton Group, heads up a premium food and beverage service, including a barista and cocktail bar, with menus tailored to the requirements of each client. Members can access the service from morning to night.
Whether seeking out membership or planning a corporate event, Convene is a community-led coworking environment that adds to London’s bouyant new-work scene.
