Event Venues in Southampton
Located at the end of the M3, Southampton is one of the significant south coast cities of England, along with neighbouring Portsmouth just 20 miles away. It’s also a picturesque location overall, with the New Forest to the west, South Downs National Park to its east, and the Isle of Wight to the south across the Solent.

Back on dry land, the M3 provides a direct link with the western loop of the M25 within about 60 miles, for delegates arriving from locations in and around London. The A34 runs directly north from Southampton to the M4 and beyond to Didcot and Oxford, again a distance of around 60 miles, and adds further to the area served more than capably by Southampton conference venues.

Among the city’s business event venues, The Spark stands out as one of the most modern, built at Southampton Solent University at a cost of £30 million. Solent Conference Centre is found within, offering lecture theatres and exhibition space, meeting rooms and breakout hospitality suites, along with a dedicated kitchen to cater for private events from weddings to business conventions.

Elsewhere in the city’s academic community, City College Southampton offers the hub, with spaces to hire including its 240-seat atrium with licensed bar, 25-person business suite, and 240-seat theatre with professional-standard stage and lighting equipment.

These are just a few examples of the vibrant and varied business conference facilities to hire in Southampton, and with Absolute Venues’ help you can secure some of the best premises for your upcoming conference, seminar or training day.

We work with private premises owners and operators across the city and the surrounding areas to identify the closest matches to what you need, and provide you with a shortlist of venues that we think are worth visiting in person; you are not obliged to visit all, or even any of them, but we are confident that the perfect option will be among our shortlisted recommendations.

Contact us today to start a free venue search, or let us know if you have chosen your preferred option from our shortlist and we can negotiate the best possible rate and facilities package for your event.

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.
