The venue is perhaps most well known for regularly hosting the annual party conferences of the big three political parties in the UK, Labour, the Conservatives, and the Liberal Democrats, throughout the late 20th century.
With a maximum capacity of 3000, the Empress is a very flexible space. Its layout can be arranged to suit the needs of any event. It is possible to customise the space with various seating arrangements, as well as utilising the venue as an exhibition space where delegates are free to walk around and explore.
The Empress Ballroom can also be used in conjunction with our other conference and events venues and is also directly linked to the Arena and Olympia Exhibition Centre.
