You can’t buy cool, you either are or you are not. And true to Ally Pally history, individuality and great style, our beautiful venue is definitely cool. Now, we even have an award to show for it having been recently voted “Most Cool venue for Exhibitions and Conferences” ahead of many renowned national venues.

Prestige Events magazine, with a panel of top industry judges identified that Ally Pally was truly a cool and classic venue for its readership of UK event organisers. The COOL Venues Awards, an entirely unique and defining accolade, were developed in 2007 by the magazine to identify the venues that make the difference by offering charisma, originality, style, innovation, authenticity, aspiration and uniqueness.

The Ally Pally sales and events management team attended a glittering presentation evening in London’s West End and brought back the Cool Award, which is now proudly on show in BBC tower reception.

Commented Lucy Fenner, Head of Client Sales, “We are proud and thrilled that Ally Pally has been recognised, not just for the investment we are making in our client facilities but for the unique character we provide as a venue and event setting. This award is a superb reflection of the work by our Live Events team in helping make that happen.”

Looking ahead at our busy events calendar it seems that Ally Pally is set to continue the award winning success story, as more and more top names and great events are attracted by our facilities and unique atmosphere.
