Kensington Conference and Events Centre – host your event in the heart of Kensington! 


Located in the heart of Kensington, London, the prestigious Kensington Conference and Event centre is a sought-after venue for hosting a diverse array of events in a versatile meeting and event space. Boasting a central London location just moments off the buzzing High Street Kensington, it is conveniently situated near the underground station.

The venue is well established having opened in 1977. Kensington Conference and Events Centre hosts a multitude of regular exhibitions and conferences and accommodates several unique specialist events.

Tracy John, the Senior Sales Manager, expresses her pride in the enduring relationships built with clients over the years. “We enjoy welcoming back clients, many who have entrusted their events to the venue for over a decade. This really is a testament to the exceptional service, a dedicated team of staff and the facilities provided. We are also proud to say that we embrace both reoccurring and new events with equal enthusiasm.

Kensington Conference and Events Centre championing sustainability

At Kensington Conference and Events Centre we are committed to fostering the growth and success of all events we have the opportunity to host. This year we are thrilled to welcome back a sustainability exhibition in its second year. The organisers are committed to promoting environmental stewardship and socially responsible practices. We are equally excited to showcase the critical issues and shine a light on the topic and solutions regarding creating a more sustainable future for our communities and planet. 

It is great that we have a few properties of varied sizes in our portfolio. This helps enormously when an event grows in popularity and requires more space. Thanks to our portfolio, we have been able to continue to host our regular events by transferring them from our smaller venues to Kensington Conference and Events Centre. This way the organisers benefit from still working with a team who know them and their event”
