Networking Evening in Central London
EVENT: Networking Event
COMPANY: First Event
DESTINATION: The Curtain, London
NO. OF DELEGATES: 60
In order to promote our capabilities and services, we organised a showcase event for clients and local businesses in the London area. We wanted the event to have an informal, relaxed that provided plenty of networking opportunities and gave both ourselves and our exhibiting suppliers the chance to speak about their products and services.
Taking over the Ballroom at the 5* Curtain Hotel in Shoreditch, we took advantage of the centrally-located venue to host a drinks evening, inviting existing and potential clients to network with ourselves and selected suppliers. Past, existing and future event technology as the focus of the event, with a retro gaming arcade, virtual reality gaming station, and a digital conference presentation platform for guests to demo.
The event was sponsored by Virgin Atlantic, and suppliers included Four Seasons, INITION, Candy Mechanics, Direct Games, Anna Valley, and Conference Badges.
Showcasing all of our services, we provided the design for onsite collateral and merchandise. The event was preceded by marketing e-communications and gifts sent to registered attendees.
On top of a wide range of entertainment and demonstrations from suppliers, guests also received complimentary cocktails ad canapes throughout the night. Attendees were all entered into our competition to win a £5k trip LA, courtesy of our sponsors - Virgin Atlantic and Four Seasons.
The night was a success, attracting some of London's top companies from a wide range of industries. Both ourselves and suppliers received incredible feedback from attendees, along with interest diplayed in the products and services displayed.
