Small conferences

You don’t need a guest list of thousands to make good use of Tobacco Dock! As well as having provision for mega-conferences, we offer self-contained conference spaces offering everything you need for an impressive and impactful conference for up to 250 attendees. ‘Small’ conferences might be a bit of a misnomer, but everything’s relative!

Small on numbers, high on impact

When you’re thinking of small conference venues in London, Tobacco Dock, with its capacity for up to 10,000 might not immediately spring to mind. However, we excel at helping our clients deliver outstanding conferences for up to 250 delegates in our specially created conference suites at The Dock Gallery and East Dock. With comprehensive DDR packages for conferences <250 guests, Tobacco Dock is a high profile and imposing location guaranteed to ‘wow’ your attendees.

Just one stop from Bank and a short walk away from Tower Bridge, Tobacco Dock benefits from convenient transport links and is easy to get to wherever your attendees are based.

The Dock Gallery is suitable for up to 250 attendees, while East Dock is a small conference suite suitable for up to 200 delegates. Both of these spaces benefit from close proximity to the stylish and high-spec South and East Dock Meeting Rooms, ideal for use as further breakouts, exclusive meetings, interviews and workshop spaces. Dock St Bar, our Vaults restaurant and bar makes a stunning setting for post-event networking or private dining.

These spaces are ideally suited to press briefings, and conferences for up to 250, for a wide range of industries, including game developers, blockchain, fashion, fintech and political parties. Our DDR packages mean that all the organisation for your conference is taken care of by our expert team, leaving you free to focus on your content. Just turn up on the day with your banners and your laptop and get cracking!

Our main spaces can also be put to use for small conferences. EMC’s product launch made use of some of our larger spaces, such as the Great Gallery and Little Gallery as you can see in this case study. EVCOMference was another exclusive conference which took place in The Dock Gallery. For further inspiration, check out our main Case Studies page.
