IET London: Savoy Place has announced that its brand new roof terrace will open later this year, available for meetings and private events from October.

The flexible event space boasts panoramic views of London and will hold up to 200 delegates.

The announcement comes as IET London moves into the final months of its £30 million refurbishment. The flagship venue has been closed since July 2013 and the major project aims to position IET London: Savoy Place as a first-class event facility and a ‘Global Engineering Hub ‘to IET members and the engineering and technology community.

Along with the roof terrace, key improvements to the venue will include cutting-edge technology, an enlarged riverside suite, a brand new second lecture theatre, state of the art boardrooms and a ‘sesame lift’ at the front of the building, enabling the stone steps to retract automatically for wheelchair access.

Nigel Fine, Chief Executive and Secretary for the IET, commented: “The opening of the roof terrace gives a fantastic added dimension to the product we will be able to offer meetings and event organisers, and IET members. It marks the beginning of an exciting time – we are confident we have built a first class venue that the industry will enjoy.”

IET London: Savoy Place will open its doors for internal events on October 16, with the venue fully opening on 1 November 2015.
