New MPI UK Board gets Rockin’ with Status Quo…

The new MPI UK board, headed up by the Barbican’s Anthony Hyde, took office on July 1st 2009 and kicked off with a hugely successful summer networking party at Epsom Downs Racecourse on 2nd July.

Epsom Downs hosted around 75 MPI members and guests in their prestigious Downs View Suite for an evening of racing and music.  It was the second time in as little as a month that Epsom  hosted MPI UK – having provided space for the board’s annual planning retreat in June.

Following the evening’s racing, Anthony Hyde welcomed the guests and gave his inaugural speech.  This included his desire to focus on an expansion of regional and international activity throughout the year.  He also introduced his supporting board members.  The evening concluded with a 90 minute set from Status Quo .

MPI UK Chapter, VP Partnerships, Samme Allen commented:  “The evening was a huge success and we are truly grateful to the team at Epsom Downs , particularly Karl Morgan for their support.  They provided us with the best views, the best food and unrivalled hospitality – what more could we want from a summer networking party?”
