So this week I'm taking a break from discovering new venues in London. That's not to say that I'm not discovering new event venues though. I'm in Sardinia, an island I'd never been to before. In fact, all I'd really heard about the island was that my grandmother had been here "on Joey's yacht" back in the 70's.
“Everybody has a plan. Until they get punched in the face!” Mike Tyson. So far this year, I’ve been mostly hosting events. Pretty big ones, as it happens. Whereas I’ve spent the last few decades marauding around the events industry as if I’m some kind of Rockstar (although, having said that in jest, check out this from an event at the Hippodrome last year!),
On my travels, I'm often asked what the most inspiring event idea I've ever come across is? Of course, the honest answer is that there isn't one particular idea above all others, as it's mainly down to the interplay between several ideas that creates great events.
Great ideas for team building activities from cycling the Olympic velodrome to classic motor racing, ice-cream making, white water rafting and diffusing bombs.
When we were kids there was something magical about parties. When even a small group of friends get together it creates a joyous dynamic, the likes of which is hard to fabricate. In fact, you simply can't fake it!
Unique corporate days out at the Olympic Park – cycle round the velodrome, shoot the white water rapids and experience adrenaline-fueled Olympian sports.
2014 has been a sensational year for the events industry. There have been more corporate events staged and more venues, hotels, restaurants and event service providers booked by event organisers than any other time in the past five years.
London's best afternoon teas from the traditional tea at the Ritz to the quirky Gentleman's Tea at The Sanctum, and everything in between.
The classic event venues are back. Choose from our Top 10 of London’s greatest art galleries, museums and grand hotels - guaranteed wow-factor included.
It's no secret that an interesting (and, better still, cool) venue space results in a higher percentage turn-out and, perhaps more importantly, better levels of delegate engagement. Our extensive research tells us this but, let's be honest, so does common sense! What's even more revealing though is that the more traditional institutions - banks, management consultants, legal and accountancy firms are acutely aware of this fact and 'uniqueness' is now second only to budget in the planning process.
