Business meetings are no longer confined to offices, especially in London. In recent years we’ve seen an increase in creative spaces for conferences and business meetings, but for exclusivity, privacy, and comfort, you can’t beat a luxury hotel.

We’ve grouped together a selection of the best luxury venues for business meetings in or near Belgravia. Expect state-of-the-art conference facilities, sumptuous settings, and first-class hospitality.
Do you have important business clients paying you a visit? Do you want to make sure the venue you choose will set the right tone for the meeting? You can’t fail but make the right impression with your clients if you hold your meeting inside The Lanesborough Hotel on Hyde Park Corner. There are seven private rooms, and each can be hired for a business meeting or social/networking occasion.

This hotel overlooks Hyde Park, and will far exceed your expectations in terms of standard of service and catering. One of London’s best business venues, corporate hosts will have access to the most advanced audio-visual equipment available (including laptops), perfect for any demonstration or presentation.
