Event Venues in Reading
Reading’s position on the M4 corridor makes it a central location for conferences in the south of England, especially in the key local sectors of technology and financial services, but equally so for other industries as well.

The motorway itself provides a useful west-east transport link for delegates arriving from Bristol, Bath and Swindon, or from London to the east; Basingstoke, Guildford and the towns and cities of the south coast are all within easy reach too.

Many Reading conference venues are understandably located close to the motorway, rather than in the town centre – the Royal Berkshire Conference Centre at Madejski Stadium and the Green Park Conference Centre on Foudry Brook are two such examples.

Head the short distance along the A33 to Reading town centre and the variety of meeting rooms and conference facilities ranges from the Olympia Ballroom to the Town Hall, as well as a good number of executive branded hotels with on-site business event spaces.

Contact Absolute Venues today to start your free conference venue search in Reading, by letting us know the type of premises you want or the type of event you are planning, as well as the scale of the conference and when it is due to take place, plus any specific facilities you need like catering or audiovisual equipment.

We take all of these criteria into account when comparing the privately owned and operated premises we partner with, so that the shortlist we compile for you includes only the most relevant venues within your target area, and available on the dates you specify.

It’s important to place a booking as soon as possible to secure the premises for your preferred date, and our free venue finding service makes this much easier by speeding up the process, reducing the number of in-person visits you need to make, and ensuring each site you do choose to visit is already a good match for what you need.

Once you are satisfied with one of the venues we have suggested, you can place your booking through Absolute Venues; this allows us to liaise with the venue operator and draw on our long-term relationship with them to get you the best deal on access and any additional services or facilities you want.

I haven’t thanked you for all the help you provided, which is very remiss of me. You were great – thank you! The hotel that we booked through you was really good – we had some teething problems at our first weekend, but they were very responsive in dealing with these for the second. We would gladly work with them again.
