We have put a lot of thought into the best day and time for this one day event. We know work pays the bills, so we didn't want to eat into your work time too much. We know that many agencies start to slow down by Friday lunchtime, and of course people's minds start wandering toward the weekend. So, we figured the best time to run a cool one dayer is on a Friday, kicking off around lunchtime and finishing around 8PM. Reasons:London is on Friday 28th February 2014. Registration opens at 12:00 noon, and the event kicks off at 13:00. Perfect!
Reasons:London will be held (again) at the L.S.O. at St Luke's, it is a beautiful, very cool, easy-to-get-to, contemporary and flexible venue in the heart of central London.
Situated on Old Street, just a few minutes walk from Old Street and Barbican tube stations, LSO St Luke's has the wow-factor of a unique, heritage space. Hints of original 18th-century decorations appear alongside contemporary features to create a stunning setting in which natural light floods the space through the soundproof windows.
