Kings Place Events wins C21 Media’s flagship event, Content London

Three day event with 1500 expected delegates

Content London has announced it is to move to Kings Place for the 2017 event taking place from 27th-29th November. King’s Cross based venue Kings Place was selected due to its reputation as one of London’s most progressive venues, and its flexible mix of spaces that could fulfil the various elements of Content London’s event.

The event aims to attract 1500 attendees across the three day event and will be utilising all the spaces in Kings Place, including the 400-seater Hall One auditorium and canal-side Battlebridge Room with private terrace.

C21 Media who organise the event, cited the multi-dimensional opportunities of Kings Place as a key reason for selecting the venue, as the range of versatile spaces reflect the many elements of the event, from screenings, networking, workshops and an educational conference.

Previous host venues include BAFTA, BFI and Picturehouse Central. 2017 marks the first year that Content London will be hosted in a venue outside of the film industry as well as moving away from the West End and South Bank.

With up to 1500 international executives expected at Content London 2017, The International Drama Summit has become the most significant gathering of the global drama business, supported by significant presence from the kids, future media and factual entertainment communities.

C21 Media editor-in-chief & managing director David Jenkinson said: “We’re really looking forward to hosting our 2017 event with Kings Place. Content London is our flagship event of the year and it’s fantastic to find a home where we can look to grow with the venue over the next few years. I see this as the start of a great relationship.”

Rebecca Harris, Business Development Director at Kings Place Events comments: “We are really excited to see how creatively Content London are planning to use our spaces to host a range of different events across the three days. It’s also testament to the growing reputation of King’s Cross as a key location for events within the media and creative industries, which we are seeing reflected in the number of enquiries and bookings from this sector, with Content London being the most significant.”
