AirSpace Conference Centre, overlooking Duxford’s evocative working airfield, offers a range of flexible suites and rooms, including the state-of-the-art Marshall Auditorium. Complementing the centre, the AirSpace Conservation Hall is also now available to hire for large-scale conferences, exhibitions, product launches and other events and can accommodate over 800 guests.
For private dining, IWM Duxford offers two stunning and unforgettable locations in which to celebrate. AirSpace is a venue that oozes sophistication and glamour from the moment you arrive.

With space to seat up to 500 guests under the wings of Concorde, AirSpace guarantees your guests a night to remember.
Alternatively you can celebrate in the illustrious American Air Museum, an extraordinary example of contemporary British architecture. Designed by Lord Foster, it is the jewel in the crown of Duxford's hospitality. With an experienced events team running your event, you can be assured that the lighting, atmosphere and, of course, the food will be out of this world.
The Museum also offers an array of spectacular outdoor events. Fantastic team-building opportunities on-site include flying lessons, tank driving and hovercraft racing. To add glamour to your conference, you can even arrange to arrive by airplane…budget permitting of course!

The aerodrome at Duxford was built during the First World War and was one of the earliest Royal Air Force stations. During 1917 the Royal Flying Corps (RFC) expanded and Duxford was one of a number of new stations established to train RFC aircrew. On 1 April 1918 the Royal Naval Air Service and the Royal Flying Corps were merged to become the Royal Air Force, the world's first fully independent air force. In September 1918 Duxford opened as a flying school - No. 35 Training Depot Station - and after the war ended in November 1918 the airfield was used as a base for the disbandment of squadrons from the Continent.
