Last week, in celebration of both Valentine’s Day and The Oscars, 30 Euston Square hosted more than 300 buyers from organisations including Advantage Resourcing, Diabetes UK and Hire Space.
The ‘Glitz and Glamour’ themed event (Thursday February 16th) featured famous moments from a host of well-known romantic movies, as well as 30 Euston Square’s creative and inspiring catering and hospitality.
Guests were greeted by paparazzi as they walked down the red carpet on their way into the auditorium, where the theming included screenings of famous love scenes, movie props for photo opportunities, usherettes serving popcorn and a three-piece band playing well-known movie hits.
The creative catering included bubbles on arrival, Chef’s Academy canapes, steak and chips bowl food, chocolate making, wine tasting, an indulgent cheese stand, gravlax and seafood station and movie themed cocktails including Fred and Ginger Collins.
The event once again demonstrated the venue’s flexibility – in particular its ability to deliver serious content-led conferences and events in the day, supported by industry leading technology, before being turned into a creative and exciting venue for receptions, dinners, parties and awards in the evening. The event was the perfect opportunity to see the venue in action, delivering service led high end events for an audience that included a host of leading organisations from the corporate, agency, charity and association sectors.
Lauren Reading, Marketing Executive from Advantage Resourcing, said: “Once again the showcase has demonstrated 30 Euston Square’s ability to host a flawless event. We used them for our Christmas party this year, which was a huge success. All 180 of our guests had a fantastic time thanks to the professional and highly thought out approach shown by the whole team. From communication through to tastings and delivery, 30 Euston Square is a superb venue, perfectly located for our guests who travel regionally to be at our events.”
Therese Dolan, Joint Chair of ABPCO and Senior Event Manager at Diabetes UK, said: “This was my first visit to 30 Euston Square. It offered far more than I expected, the venue balances creativity with professionalism, the food and hospitality at the event were superb and it is perfectly located near a variety of central London transport hubs. I would certainly consider using it for events in the future.”
Account Manager at Hires Space Lilla Madacsi commented that few venues make the effort that 30 Euston Square do when putting on a showcase. She said: “We recommend 30 Euston Square to our clients because they make such a good effort in everything they do. I have booked several events here recently and frequently suggest it to clients because I know they can deliver. The quality of the venue and hospitality is backed up by industry leading technology and catering which fills me with confidence. The showcase was yet another demonstration of why it is one of the capitals leading venues.”
“The showcase was such a success,” commented Yvette Chatwin, General Manager of 30 Euston Square. “From the theming through to the positive feedback from our guests everything has gone brilliantly thanks to the hard work and creativity of our team – attributes they bring to all our events, delighting clients with their determination to deliver the highest levels of quality and service, whether it be for a conferences, meeting, party or receptions.”
