The Science Museum wins Silver Award at the Conference & Events Awards

The Science Museum has won Silver Award for ‘Most Versatile Venue up to 500 Theatre Style‘ at Conference & Events Awards!

The Science Museum is one of the city’s major tourist attractions and a well-established event venue featuring a diverse collection of spaces – 12 inspirational galleries, two dedicated, multi-purpose venues and IMAX: The Ronson Theatre.

The museum’s collections offer a synergy with all major industries, particularly pharmaceutical, government, engineering/manufacturing, aviation, IT, telecommunications, space and environmental, with events spanning large scale, multi-day conferences, hybrid events, awards dinners, drinks receptions and parties.

The museum features a range of thought-provoking galleries, as well as numerous flexible event spaces. The museum is unquestionably a unique venue choice, however with Illuminate and the Smith Centre as part of the venue inventory, there are also two purpose-built spaces which are popular with clients for large-scale conferences, meetings, product launches, awards lunches and more.

Historically the museum’s galleries were only available for evening events, however since August 2021, clients have been able to exclusively hire the galleries for full or multi-day events on a Monday and Tuesday whilst the museum is closed to the public. The museum has now gone back to operating 7 days a week, however Illuminate & The Smith Centre are still available for daytime hire.

Judges Comments:

“The Science Museum has really capitalised on opening up its spaces and galleries for events on Mondays and Tuesdays when it is closed to the public. The size of it and all the spaces it has at its disposal, including amongst the exhibitions, really does enable it to attract a really diverse number of organisations and private clients. The addition of the Smith Centre with its open-plan courtyard is a bonus too. It is also impressive to see that the museum can offer such a range of technical solutions and support for any event that is held there whether it is live, virtual or hybird.”
