Trade Wine Tasting Venue in London

Create an unforgettable wine tasting experience at OXO2

Wine Tasting in London

Finding the perfect venue to showcase a variety of different traders at a Trade Wine Tasting can be difficult. However, OXO2 is a popular choice when it comes to finding a tasting venue in London.

OXO2 is a blank canvas venue located on the second floor of the OXO Tower on the South Bank. It is the ideal space for trade tastings, boasting plenty of natural light, as well as incredible views of the London skyline.

The interior of OXO2 is neutral and modern, allowing clients to be as creative as they wish when it comes to branding and layout of the venue. The two interconnecting rooms provide plenty of space for stands, workshops and talks. Better yet, the rooms can be opened out into one large room or sectioned off, depending on clients needs.

One of the great things about choosing a blank canvas event space is that you can be as immersive as you want with the theming for your Wine Trade Tasting. In previous years OXO2 has seen clients transform part of the venue into a vineyard, taking guests on a multi-sensory journey, ensuring they have an unforgettable wine tasting experience. See more about this immersive event here.

Catering at Trade Tastings

Whilst we do offer dry hire at OXO2, some of our Wine Tasting clients can require catering for their event – especially if it’s an all-day affair! Luckily, our in-house caterers Create are always on hand to devise a bespoke menu.

Whether you’re looking for canapes and bowl foods to provide light snacking whilst your tasting is taking place, or if you’re looking to provide a sit down meal at some point throughout your event, Create will work with you to ensure that tour catering needs are met.

Trade Tasting Capacities

The capacities for Trade Tastings will vary depending on the set up of your event. As guests may not all be arriving at the same time and instead will be visiting throughout the day, there is often the opportunity to invite higher numbers of guests.

New Zealand Winegrowers Wine Tasting London

On 15th January 2020, New Zealand Winegrowers held their annual trade tasting at OXO2. The bright and vast space lent itself perfectly to the set-up and flow of their event. The Right-Wing was set up with tables and screens for workshops and talks which took place throughout the day. The Left-Wing showcased over 30 different wineries with stands and tasting stations.

Throughout the day we saw over 400 guests visit to attend the wines tastings and workshops. The set up of the room was extremely important for the day as it needed to ensure that guests could flow around the room freely with enough space to stop, try the wines and converse with other guests and wineries.

“Anyway – our London event was a great success for us. All exhibitors were very pleased with the turnout, guest attendance and venue.

The amount of wineries in one room worked out well, also it seemed busy all the time. Therefore, the OXO2 was a good choice and setting.”

South London Cares – 2018

The Oxo Tower is an iconic venue in the centre of the city, and to be able to host our annual fundraising dinner there really elevated the event and made the evening extra special for our guests. And when it came to planning and executing our dinner, Lily and the staff at the OXO2 didn’t disappoint. Their care, attention to detail and friendly, flexible approach from start to finish made this a dream venue to work with. We can’t recommend them highly enough. We came for the venue, but we’d come back because of the staff.
