The breakfast event (from 8 –11am) is hoping to attract event planners from across London and beyond for a morning of networking with representatives from more than 40 venues.

Anna Glazebrook, board director for The Westminster Collection and marketing manager at One Great George Street, described the event as a "one-stop-shop" where buyers and venues come together to share information and explore the possibilities and opportunities available for events.

"The face-to-face contact is really important to building working relationships and so many of our guests always comment on how they’ve discovered venues or features and services they didn’t even know were available," she added.

The organisation welcomed the QEII Centre (currently undergoing a £12m refurbishment) and The Royal Air Force Club into its collection this year.

During the event guests will be able to watch screenings of candid interviews with Hollywood film stars in the 227-seat Princess Anne Theatre, including Tom Hanks and the late Robin Williams, as well as homegrown talents Idris Elba, Ricky Gervais, Karl Pilkington and Stephen Merchant.
