Chatham House: Independent thinking on international affairs

Joseph Gaggero HallThe main conference hall at Chatham House underwent a major renovation project during summer 2008. This included both an overhaul of the physical space and a dramatic upgrading of its communications capacity.

The Joseph Gaggero Hall is purpose-built for conferences, meetings and seminars. A raised platform 2m x 8m (approx) ensures excellent visibility for speakers and creates an intimate atmosphere for discussion. Sound-proof partitions enable the hall to be converted into two smaller units, each with its own platform and entrance. Dimensions (approx) 18m x 7.5m (extension 14m x 5m).
