In Focus: America Square Cavendish Venues

America Square, part of the One America Square building in the City and close to Fenchurch Street station, offers superb suites available for various types of events up to 250 guests, including dinners, AGMs, conferences or seminars.


History is a large part of this modern venue. Part of the original London wall, which was one of the largest construction projects carried out in Roman Britain, runs right through the middle of the venue, providing a fascinating and unique backdrop for memorable events at the venue.


“The London Wall built by the Romans is a feature that gives America Square wow factor for an award-winning central London venue in the city, reflected by personable staff shortlisted for MIA Lists and experienced management spanning over 20 years ensure a warm welcome every time” comments Paul Martins, Director of Sales


Its not just meetings that America Square is great for, as Volvo Car Corporation realised at a recent event. Volvo wished to announce plans to conduct the 'most ambitious' trial of driverless car technology on UK roads and did so at an event for around 200 guests at America Square. The Swedish manufacturer said it would be the first time members of the British public will be recruited to get behind the wheel of autonomous driving (AD) cars on a public highway.


America Square was the ideal choice for Volvo as the venue provided quick, efficient response time to the enquiry and they conducted an informative and welcoming site visit. The client  quickly realised they could have trust in reliability, reputation and style of facilities of Cavendish Venues.


One of the main challenges of the event was featuring the car and with the venue not being able to accommodate it inside the venue had to come up with a solution which meant it would feature as a key aspect of the event. It was placed right outside the venues main entrance and was visible as guests entered and left the building as well as overlooking the advanced vehicle from viewing points.


The event was a huge success and working with a recognised established brand with a reliable reputation which featured an innovative approach to their industry and received highly positive feedback is very synonymous with the way Cavendish Venues work.


Client feedback is something that is incredibly important to Cavendish Venues and some recent feedback includes:


“On behalf of all of us at the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists, thank you for helping to make our event such a success. It was wonderful to work with such a helpful and accommodating team in the lead up to the event. As you know, this was a high profile event that required the utmost attention to detail. We are grateful that you and your teams were able to support us with finalising all of these requirements; through email, on the phone and at site visits.”


“I once more would like to thank you for all you help and kindness to make our event a success. Please also give my best regards to all the staff that worked so well with the technical part. They are stars! And of course to all the others in catering!”
