Docklands Business Club Awards

The Docklands Business Club and the East London Chamber of Commerce held their annual Business Awards at the Crystal in 2013. The previous year’s venue had been a museum so they were looking to hold their next awards at an innovative and forward-thinking venue.


Guests arrived in style across the beautiful docks by cable car and were met with a drinks reception showcasing a scale model of a sustainable tube train. The awards ceremony was held in the 270 seat auditorium, allowing us to show off our state of the art technology, dazzling light displays and huge HD screen to announce the awards.

Guests then retired to Rooms 1-4, which were combined and decorated to create a stunning banqueting room overlooking the docks with glass chandelier table ornaments, screens showing personalized photographs and branding with elegant goody bags for each attendee.

The night was wrapped up with guests enjoying cocktails and networking while wandering around the inspiring exhibition space.


“For 2013 we decided the venue association should be with the future, which accounted for the choice of Siemens’ awe inspiring the Crystal conference and urban sustainability initiative in the very heart of the Royal Docks Enterprise Zone.”

Janette Withey, the Chairman of Docklands Business Club
