London is rapidly becoming one of the world’s leading meetings and events destinations, going from 19th to 5th place in the ICCA rankings (International Congress and Convention Association) in the last five years and attracting over 3.7 million domestic and overseas business tourists to capital in 2015, which is a 13% increase on 2014.
The capital has benefited from a huge amount of investment over the past few years, creating better transport links, a greater range of accommodation and regenerated areas full of new attractions, venues and restaurants. Having a Dot London web address can strengthen a venue’s association with ‘brand London’ and help organisers shout about which global city they’re hosting their event in.
Here are some the capital’s venues that are using a Dot London web address:
