On Friday 30th June 2023, Hilton London Bankside was awarded the title of the ‘Best Events Team – Venues’ at this year’s Conference & Event Awards, held at Old Billingsgate in London. The annual awards are the pinnacle of recognition for the events industry; celebrating and championing everyone involved in the world of events from conference & trade-show organisers to in-house teams. The Hilton London Bankside team fought off strong competition from international event venues to take home the coveted prize.
The design-led and Hilton flagship hotel received the highly commended award for the team’s passion and commitment to achieving success for clients, effectively planning and delivering world-class events, from start to finish. The prestigious award comes after an immensely successful year for the venue’s experienced and dynamic events team, organising over 350 events in 2022, including the staging and execution of an event for 550 people in the space in less than 24 hours – a feat only made possible through impeccable teamwork.
This latest achievement is an impressive addition to the hotel’s ongoing portfolio of awards which includes Winner of the Best Hotel at the Splendid Hospitality Awards 2023, Winner of the Luxury City Hotel – UK – at the World Luxury Hotel Awards 2022 and Best Conference Style Venue 401-1100 Theatre Style at the 2022 Conference Awards, to name a few.

Clarke, General Manager at the Hilton London Bankside, said: “We’re absolutely thrilled to have been crowned as winners of the Best Events Team Award – Venues at the 2023 Conference and Events Awards. At Hilton London Bankside, we truly believe that you are only as good as your team, and I could not be prouder of everyone here at the hotel, who go above and beyond to ensure every event is an immense success. Their drive, passion and dedication are not only reflected in the outstanding feedback we receive regularly from clients, but also through recognition from our industry peers such as this!”
Nadeem Boghani, Vice Chairperson of Splendid Hospitality Group and Owner of Hilton London Bankside said “Since opening in 2015, the team at Hilton London Bankside have continued to go from strength to strength, demonstrating a dedication to hospitality and innovation, which I have not seen matched in their market.
