The LCF had been held in the same venue for the last 3 years (previous to this we were in the British Library and will be in the same venue for 2019 – The Crystal. This is an award winning events venue in the London’s Docklands and is one of the most sustainable buildings in the world. Boasting state of the art exhibition facilities, including a fabulous tiered and hugely-comfortable-armchair-style-296-seater auditorium and much more space with room to relax and exchange ideas, we believe this will be a winner again!
The Conference Centre is divided into two main areas, the welcome reception is located at the beginning of the Exhibition, which will lead through to the main state-of-the art auditorium.
