The O2 has hosted 118 corporate events in its 10-year history, the venue has revealed as it gears up for its milestone birthday on 24 June.

The London venue has welcomed a range of events, from religious gatherings to corporate conferences and charities to community groups, bringing in a combined audience of 1.7 million.

Events include the Responsible Business Awards, which was the largest ever dinner for 1,600 guests seated, as well as Salvation Army's global congress which welcomed 15,000 delegates.

Becci Thomson, head of corporate sales at The O2, said: "Our corporate events business has grown considerably over the last 10 years and our calendar of events at The O2 is more diverse than ever. The venue has been a game changer in the live music experience – it raised the bar in terms of what fans expect, what artists expect and the overall experience. And this is something we’ve been able to transfer to the corporate events side. Organisers know if they choose The O2 for their event they have incredible scope in terms of activating our entire venue, or choosing one of our smaller spaces for a more intimate event, while also having access to Up at The O2 and corporate hospitality options. We pride ourselves on offering our clients an excellent service, while continuing to push the boundaries of what’s possible on a daily basis."
