The venue

Pylondinium is taking place at the new Bloomberg London Building. Located in the heart of the City of London, Bloomberg's new European headquarters was awarded the most sustainable office space in the world, a perfect place for PyLondinium.

The venue provides two auditoriums for a track each, complimentary coffee and snacks, many artwork across its floors, a retail arcade that reinstates an ancient Roman travel route and a museum for the roman Temple of Mithras, which was restored to its original site.
