Business Design Centre
Aztec has been previously specified to offer technical, audio-visual and creative assistance to businesses and organisations hosting events at the Business Design Centre (BDC) in the heart of Islington, North London. As one of the most popular conference and exhibition venues in the capital, the BDC hosts more than 300 events each year in the former Royal Agricultural Hall.
The BDC’s spectacular building dates back to 1862 when it was the Royal Agricultural Hall. Its design was heavily inspired by the Crystal Palace for the Great Exhibition of 1851 and was positioned here to take advantage of its proximity to Smithfield’s livestock market. Having been left derelict for much of the 1970s, it was reborn in 1985 as a purpose-built exhibition and conference centre. Today, it benefits from its proximity to London’s King’s Cross station and various tube connections throughout North London.
Today, the BDC’s spectacular Mezzanine and ground floor space offers over 2,500 square metres of flexible event space, ideal for banquets, exhibitions and conferences. Its magnificent glass roof offers an abundance of natural light. The 890 square metre Gallery Hall is another multi-purpose space suitable for large conferences, while the 500-capacity Auditorium is better suited for more intimate conferences and seminars and can also be utilised for theatre and classroom-style events.
Aztec’s Event Partnership team has provided audio-visual and technical support to events at the BDC. We have developed a strong working relationship with staff on-site over the years. Our expertise in supporting events both in the Mezzanine, Gallery Hall and Auditorium areas enables us to point you in the right direction when it comes to stage and table layouts, or sound, lighting and projection.
However big or small your event, you can find flexible and contemporary event space to suit at Islington’s BDC. When you work with our award-winning live events team, you can depend on the same attention to detail for intimate meetings and seminars as well as industry-leading conferences and exhibitions.
