Slovak House is taking two of the 12 available event spaces at the IoD, in which it will entertain, conduct business and hold press conferences. The building houses function rooms, restaurant facilities and a business centre.
The venue is situated within a minute of London’s Olympic Lanes and is close to the live sites, which will provide video links, public information and event spaces during the Games.
The IoD’s chief operating officer, Andrew Main Wilson, said he is “delighted and proud” that the IoD’s headquarters has been chosen for Slovak House.
“116 Pall Mall was built in 1828 and is one of London’s most famous period buildings, located minutes from the dedicated lanes for Olympic athletes and VIPs, and it is symbolically decorated with Olympic Torch-like flambeaux,” he added.
Slovak Team Olympic attaché Jan Telensky said: “The IoD’s head office will have a significant part to play for us during the 2012 Olympics, and its unique location in the heart of London with its access to the lovely garden at the back will make everyone’s experience unforgettable.”
