November has been a fantastic month for the RCP which saw us scoop two fantastic awards for the venue.
London Venue & Catering Awards 2021
At the London Venue and Catering Awards 2021, we won bronze in the ‘Best Conference Facilities Venue’ category.
The award recognises outstanding facilities and service and was judged independently by an esteemed panel with a wealth of knowledge and experience in the management of venues and the organisation of B2B events.

COVID Response Awards 2021
RCP London Events also won a COVID Response Award 2021. We scooped bronze in the ‘Best COVID-19 response in Hospitality/ Retail’ category.
The award recognises hospitality and retail businesses that re-imagined their offering and incorporated new approaches to continue to propel their business forward despite the challenges of the pandemic. RCP London Events was one of the few venues to provide real solutions during the COVID pandemic.
We proactively updated our operational standards to reflect the latest government guidelines at every step of the way to ensure we could always host events and meetings at our venue in total safety. And we had virtual and hybrid options for those that wanted to utilise them. Safe and secure events was our venue motto and we worked tirelessly to ensure that the show was able to go on, in a safe way for the majority of our customers.
The judges said: "The venue clearly responded to client needs innovatively and is a great example of how a traditionally 'in person' business has had to adapt to the virtual world with the added complexity of its main membership being deeply involved in the pandemic response.
“It was great to see both a venue and an association adapting to the new environment. Through investment in tech, it has continued to maintain profile as well as opening up its channels to a vastly increased audience."
Finally, our sister venue in Liverpool, Spaces at the Spine, won a Liverpool Chamber of Innovation in Business Award 2021. Our venue won ‘Environmental & Climate Gold’ at the awards which celebrate the spirit of innovation that has driven many local businesses in their recovery from the pandemic.
We are absolutely delighted to have received these prestigious awards off the back of a challenging 18 months for our venue. The awards are testament to the fantastic work of everyone at RCP London Events and are a great end to the year. Find out more about the awards won by our venue in the past years.
