Frequent travelers will find that London has changed since their last visit, and the London Convention Bureau invites meeting and event planners to see London differently through new venues, hotels and attractions.

According to new research from the London Convention Bureau, London has opened 18 new hotels in 2021, offering an increasing range of accommodation, meeting and event space options.

Several hotels and venues have used quieter times during the pandemic to innovate and reinvent their offerings and integrate sustainability into everything they do, aligning with evolving customer expectations around green solutions. This has pushed forward innovative solutions, from using reclaimed materials in design and maintaining living rooftops full of vegetables and bees, to planting trees in London’s iconic Hyde Park and using biodegradable cutlery.

The Londoner, part of Edwardian Hotels, opened at the end of summer. This long-awaited addition to the London hotel scene features 350 rooms, a rooftop bar, signature restaurant and gastro tavern, as well as event spaces accommodating up to 850 guests and two private screening rooms.

Opened in early September at One Bishopsgate Plaza, Pan Pacific London marks the group’s first European venture. Close to Liverpool Street station, the hotel offers luxurious comfort in 237 guestrooms and suites. A ballroom with space for 400 guests is available, along with a floor dedicated to well-being, featuring a gym, mindfulness studio and infinity pool with views over the plaza.
