We were delighted to welcome The Christmas Party Show and over 600 visitors for the second year running.
The event ran from 14th to 15th May starting with a VIP industry evening for event agents, followed by a full corporate buying day.
The corporate day saw venues, hotels, clubs, restaurants, bars and shared party night event planners exhibiting throughout The Great Hall and the Livery Room. The Mott Room was transformed into a winter cabin themed seating area complete with working fireplace, faux fur dressed chesterfields and cheery Christmas music themed by Event Prop Hire. The Humber Room played host to six seminars with talks on fostering a creative culture in events, top new venue openings, adding a charity to your events and more
Our in-house catering team Create food created three spectacular food stations for breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea. The foodie highlights included the impressively large roast turkey with all the trimmings and mouth-watering Crayfish and prawn vol au vent served with bloody Mary cocktail sauce for lunch.
