Rent flexible workspace in one of London’s top 10 event venues
At The Dock London, members enjoy the usual benefits that come with a serviced office together with access to a string of exclusive events and the use of a popular rooftop bar!
Tobacco Dock, a Grade I listed warehouse in the Docklands area of the East End of London, has fast become one of the capital's most iconic conference and events venue, and more recently has incorporated characterful flexible offices into their offering.
Members include but are not limited to those operating the events sphere, including event tech innovators, production companies, hospitality specialists and ticketing businesses. Private and semi-private offices are available to businesses comprised of two to 20 people and the single monthly rental fee includes all utilities, IT, cleaning, air-con security and general office services.
The area itself is abuzz with life: London Docks and St Katherine Docks boast a wealth of new residential and retail projects, and Tomas More Square is the place to go for cafe culture, nightlife and easy access to the tube and overground networks.
Fun fact: The Dock is the world's only Grade I listed workspace!
Patrick Donovan, Managing Director of TDVL, says: "Over the last decade we’ve seen a trend towards clustering where your clients are. FinTech in Canary Wharf, creative industries in Shoreditch and Soho etc. It seems to make sense for events professionals, SMEs and specialist suppliers to be co-located with one of the capital’s busiest events hubs.
We can’t promise that our clients will become their customers, but it makes sense to be on site and in a position to showcase your ideas in a venue where more than half a million visitors a year, and some of the world’s biggest brands, are passing through."
On the subject of flexible working in London, Donovan adds: “Who wants the hassle of long-term fully repairing leases and all the investment required for reception, security, print room, IT, super fast Wi-Fi and other facilities?
By packaging all that up and being able to offer a business of say 6 people a smart, fully serviced office for less than £20k pa including rent, rates and all service charges – we think The Dock will make the perfect home for small, but fast growing events industry enterprises.”
Events that members are able to enjoy on their doorstep include foodie ones such as Taste Of London and the Gin Festival, as well as industry-related get togethers like the Festival of Marketing. You can find more information about upcoming events at www.tobaccodocklondon.com.
Skylight, the rooftop bar is open all year round - in winter it hosts and ice rink and in the summer it will have croquet and petanque* games!
