December is the time of year when attentions turn to trends for the coming year. From festivalisation to mindful events be sure to check out our Wembley hotel’s guide to the top three meeting and event trends for 2019.
Festivalisation of meetings, whereby delegates take part in an immersive business event that is similar to some of the best parts of a consumer festival is set to be a huge trend for the coming year. The focus will be on the co-curation of sessions, social media activity, innovative workshops and venue design. The empire suite at our budget hotel in Wembley is the ideal venue for festival type events as it is an 800 square meter room that is stylish and totally flexible to adapt to the requirements of any event.
Mindfulness has become a buzzword in offices and other places of work over the last few years and the concept is only gaining in prominence. Many people are now trying to incorporate mindfulness in their own lives so it only makes sense that it should play a part in meetings as well. We are seeing mindfulness play a role in everything from room set up to breaks, food and mindful minutes (taking a minute out of the meeting to be present). You can incorporate mindfulness by providing brain-friendly foods, having 5-minute meditation break-out sessions and even providing a wellness zone that provides creative opportunities such as mindful colouring.
Year on year technology improves, becomes faster, smarter and more advanced. It is unsurprising really that this will only continue in 2019. New and improved technology will have a growing influence on both the planning an execution of meetings. Artificial intelligence (AI), virtual reality (VR) and chatbots will become more prominent in events. But, you should proceed with caution; just because they are the coolest new things doesn’t mean they are the right tool for your meeting. They must serve a purpose that is in line with the event goal.
Our Wembley Stadium hotel is the ideal location to hold a meeting or event with rooms and packages that cater for two to 500 delegates. We have an experienced conference team who are on hand to support you and ensure that your meeting or event runs as smoothly as possible.

I was really impressed and even surprised how great this hotel was. It is located next to Wembley and it is 5-7 minutes to walk from the subway station Wembley Park. Rooms are very clean, the bed was simply fantastic. The breakfast is far above traditional breakfasts in midrange price British hotels. I will definitely stay there again when I am going to be in London.
We stayed 2 nights and enjoyed our stay. We were looking for decent hotel in London and although a wee bit outside the center of London, the rail/tube links to Wembley makes this hotel easily accessible to central London (30 min train journey). We booked executive room (£134) which was large, with great view of Wembley stadium. Service from staff was very good with food and drink reasonable for London.
The welcome was friendly and helpful. Room on 3rd floor very clean and fresh. Twin beds as requested. Very comfortable. The temperature of room was constant with no stuffy feel.
Great choice for breakfast. This is hotel is good value for money considering location.
This hotel was absolutely great. The food and everything far exceeded my expectations. The room was very comfortable and very clean. The staff were extraordinarily professional and provided excellent service. They were very accommodating and made my stay a very pleasant and rewarding one.
Handy for train station and bus routes, and it had all amenities that you could reasonably require. The room itself was good and I slept well that night. I would gladly stay again.
Good value stopover with the city easily reached by the Metropolitan Line. Team here are always welcoming. Comfortable and clean room on the 9th floor and the air con much appreciated on a scorcher of a day outside.
Wonderful hotel room, very good price, staff were lovely and friendly. Saying how busy it was after the summertime ball the staff were friendly and on hand to help. Would recommend to anyone who wants a place to stay visiting Wembley stadium.
Stayed here for the game at the stadium which is right next to hotel. Beds comfy staff are friendly the breakfast is buffet all you can eat. Diana on reception was really polite and helpful. Would stay here again.
The friendly, knowledgeable and helpful staff and a VERY comfortable bed makes this hotel an excellent choice every time, especially when you intend attending events at Wembley or shopping in the designer outlets.
First would like to say how helpful and friendly Mario at the Reception desk was made checking in easy and welcoming. The room we were allocated was excellent wanted to take the bed home with me. Cleanliness was excellent and had everything you need for a one night stay.
