Hire the Box that Rocks


The Copper Box Arena offers an impressive setting for your corporate event.

After hosting events during London 2012, the Copper Box Arena is available to hire for large scale conferences, awards, exhibitions (2,712m2), product launches, dinners, TV shows, concerts and comedy events.

Up to 7,500 delegates can be accomodated theatre-style and the venue has the flexibility to cater for sit-down dinners or smaller performances in a short hall format.

Behind the scenes, the facilities at the Copper Box Arena are just as impressive. There are preparation and changing areas, a modern sound system, extensive office space with free Wi-fi and all the production and rigging systems you need to make any event a success.
