Event Location

Venue

London, the capital city of the United Kingdom, is one of the world's major financial centers. The city's financial district, known as The City, is home to numerous leading financial institutions and the London Stock Exchange, making it a hub of finance and investment. London's prominence as a financial center can be traced back to its establishment as The City of London after the Roman invasion. The Bank of England and the development of the stock exchange contributed to London's financial dominance. Over time, London borrowed financial innovations from Amsterdam and competed with Paris to become the largest financial hub. Today, London hosts The Tech Capital's flagship conference attracting delegates from more than 30 countries, representing all continents.

One Great George Street, a majestic and historic grade II listed Edwardian building, stands as an exceptional venue near prominent landmarks such as the Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace, and St James's Park. This iconic building is the epitome of elegance and sophistication, offering a magnificent setting for various events. With its four domes, splendid architecture, and rich history, One Great George Street provides a unique backdrop for networking, collaboration, and knowledge exchange. Attendees will relish the convenience and charm of this remarkable venue, with seamless access to conference rooms, exhibition spaces, and other amenities. One Great George Street elevates the overall experience of IFF, creating an atmosphere of grandeur and refinement for all participants.
