Imperial unveils new flexible conference and seminar space

From 2020, event organisers looking for a state-of-the-art conference or seminar space will be able to take advantage of the newly renovated Blackett lecture theatre at Imperial’s South Kensington campus.

The Blackett lecture theatre has recently been transformed into an innovative and highly flexible space which is ideal for conference and seminar sessions of up to 113 delegates.

The lecture theatre features a range of new digital technologies, alongside a new modular design with an interactive group-based layout. By utilising group style seating rather than a traditional theatre style, the space facilitates and encourages group work and discussions.

What’s more, it follows ‘accessibility by design’ principles including multiple wheelchair places, entry ramps, power and data points to all seats, as well as AV solutions to help lip-reading and sign language interpretation software.

Further lecture theatre upgrades are planned over the next two years.
