London's Living Room, City Hall
The Queen's Walk
United Kingdom

The ARP have secured the go-ahead for a reception in the exclusive suite called the ‘London’s Living Room Suite.’ And you’re invited.

This event is being hosted by the Deputy Chair of the greater London Assembly, Keith Prince AM. Senior representatives from politics and from the sector are attending. This is your chance to hear the progress being made for you on behalf of the relocation sector, and to share your views of what needs to be done with the industry and with political representatives from London and beyond. We are also able to allow you to bring any reasonable number of individuals - that’s up to 5 - from your team. We just need the names.

Here are the details:  

Price: Free

Date: Tuesday, 26th October, 2021.

Time: 18.30(BST) - 20.00

Location: London's Living Room. 

Address: City Hall The Queen's Walk London, SE1 2AA United Kingdom

Nearest station:    London Bridge

Refreshments:     Buffet plus alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks.

The Mayor of London, Mr Sadiq Khan will also attend. 

We will take photos which we can send you afterwards, and which you’re welcome to use as you wish.

This will be one of the last ever receptions to be held in the current City Hall building, because soon the Assembly is being moved away from Central London to an Eastern location. Don’t miss your last chance to see this iconic building.

We look forward to seeing you then.
