    The Business of Events is a series of independent cross sector events designed to engage, support and promote the UK events industry, supported by the UK Events Industry Board and the All Party Parliamentary Group for the Events Industry. It will see senior industry professionals from across the UK and Europe join for a series of discussions and sessions, designed to engage, inform and support the UK events sector.


    Founded in 1847 by John Searcy, Searcys is one of the first British event catering companies, that have carved out a name as brave market-leaders, launching bold, forward-thinking concepts including the original in-station Champagne bar at St Pancras, one of London’s first skyscraper venues, the Gherkin, as well as restaurants in two World Heritage Sites. Their venues across the UK serve fresh, modern dishes that focus on sustainability, local produce and world-class service standards.


    {10 -11} Carlton House Terrace is home to The British Academy – the UK’s national body for the humanities and social sciences – the study of peoples, cultures and societies, past, present and future.

    Venue Hire generates income to support the three principal roles of The British Academy: as an independent Fellowship of world-leading scholars and researchers; a Funding Body that supports new research, nationally and internationally; and a Forum for debate and engagement – a voice that champions the humanities and social sciences.

    {10 -11} Carlton House Terrace, designed by renowned architect John Nash and built in the late 1820’s, comprises 11 versatile rooms available for private hire. With capacity up to 500 guests, these two terraced Townhouses have the perfect central London location with stunning architecture and desirable views over St James’s Park and The Mall.
