What our customers say

Imogen – London & Partners

“We hosted an event here for around 40 people, and the team could not have been more helpful in helping us put together the event. The space worked perfectly, and having the mezzanine area meant that we could easily break out into less formal networking and have plenty of space for refreshments”

Sophie – Studio 68

“We hosted an event and video live stream here and both the staff and the location itself was great. The staff were very accommodating helping to order catering, organise security and helping to set up AV and a green room for our contributors... I would highly recommend this location and I would definitely use it again in the future”

Vinit – Filtered

“Amazing team, staff, space and vibes. We love using all of Techspace's facilities and the events team always go above and beyond. "Impossible" is not in their vocabulary. Forever grateful and can't wait to see you all again soon!”

Carlos – Wearable

“We worked with Techspace to host our first event post lockdown recently. Sammi and Tatiana in the events team were massively helpful in organising the space, and helping us put on what was a really well received event. We'll definitely be working with them again, and would massively recommend them and the space!”
