all size and  budget.

Southampton is one of the leading ports in Europe and it’s also Hampshire’s leading maritime city. It is a thriving convention and conference destination and has seen a recent growth of new conference facilities. Its exciting venues include cruise terminals, a cricket ground, hotels (including the Jury’s Inn and Hilton Hotel brands) and the O2 Guildhall.

The city’s location and transport links, plus an international airport, make it a desirable place to hold a conference or event. The city centre is just a short walk from the train station or a twenty minute taxi ride from the airport. Motorway access is located a further ten minutes outside of central Southampton.

The city centre is compact, making it easy for visitors to explore the vibrant nightlife, delicious restaurants and West End theatre shows, which take place on a nightly basis.

Southampton is ever changing and new venues and hotels are opening all of the time.  2020 has already seen the addition of the Marriot Moxy Hotel Southampton and the refurbishment of the historic Gods House Tower.  These sit alongside some of the other 37 other meeting venues within the city, offering a multitude of choice, style and size for you to choice from.
