A group of 30 corporate bookers from across the UK representing brands such as Siemens, RSA and KCOM Group were treated to an exclusive showcase last night at two of Searcys’ most iconic venues – Searcys One New Change and Searcys The Gherkin.
Representatives from leading events, conference and travel management company NYS Corporate, were invited to enjoy the elegant surroundings of Searcys One New Change and Searcys The Gherkin as part of a Fam trip which came about as a result of the two organisations meeting at The Meeting Show earlier this year.
The account management team at NYS Corporate like to ensure they regularly engage with their client meetings bookers. A key part of their activity involves providing updates on the venues they work with closely to allow their clients to experience fabulous venues.
Amy O’Rourke, Account Manager at NYS, commented: “At the showcase the venues met with thirty of our top client bookers. Events such as this allow our clients to have the opportunity to network with likeminded people from different industry sectors. It supports the sharing of tips and best practice as well as seeing the versatility of venue spaces first hand. Feedback from previous events demonstrates it is a great way to really build strong relationships with our end users whilst benefiting both NYS Corporate and Searcys.”
Ali Burt, Group Procurement Manager at KCOM, commented; “It’s been great to experience these venues for the first time. Searcys One New Change would cater for both informal and corporate events – the location is ideal, and somewhere we would look to place business in future. We’ve already discussed booking our Christmas party here. I’ve been very impressed by Searcys’ offering – events like this are fantastic way to see what venues are out there.”
Rudo White, Searcys’ Senior Business Development Manager commented: “We were delighted to showcase two of our most prestigious London based venues to NYS Corporate. Following our introduction at The Meetings Show we wanted their clients to have firsthand experience of our venues so they could get a better understanding of what we offer corporate bookers; particularly as both Searcys One New Change and Searcys The Gherkin provide ideal backdrops for exclusive events in the City. The evening was a great success and we look forward to forming a close working relationship with NYS Corporate.”
Searcys One New Change, located in the iconic, yet trendy hot-spot of the St Paul’s area, recently underwent a complete refurbishment. With hues of aqua, copper and monochrome the new interior gives the venue an urban and contemporary feel, whilst maintaining its style and sophistication with a ‘fuss-free’ meatballs and champagne concept.
Exclusively occupying the top three floors of the Gherkin, Searcys provides world-class hospitality for both corporate and social events at this unique landmark in the heart of the City.
