Last week I was event managing an antiques evening for Pricewaterhouse Coopers. I don’t get out much in terms of going along to our client events so this was a nice change. I am more on the sales side and the creation of bespoke events and client liaison. Good to work with PWC again and reminds we that we must update our testimonial page as it’s so outdated.
For this evening event, we used a new hotel called the Park Plaza County Hall. Very good venue, central, clean and contemporary. The main events guy there was called Suresh Abbas who worked his little socks off all day and evening and reminded me that I would hate to work in a hotel! I know we do long hours but their hours are terrible.
Guests from all different parts of the world who attended this event tried to guess what the objects/antiques were, how old they were and the rough age of the antique. Thomas, our expert antiques guru and TV presenters or Bargain Hunt was able to mill around each table to give them some clues.
This event is such a good addition to any fairly senior level dinner or drinks reception. I can only describe is as an event that isn’t in your face. It’ a relaxed, enjoyable and enjoyably interactive evening activity that does always work.
Sorry that I missed you, but just to say a huge thanks for all of your help with organising the antiques evening last night. By all accounts it was a great success and after speaking to many of the delegates this morning, it was greatly enjoyed all round. Thanks so much for helping sort this at very late notice, it really was much appreciated! If you could also pass on my thanks to Thomas when you are next in contact that would be great, i’ve heard that he was a great host for the night.
I’ll definitely be recommending team tactics to other groups at PwC looking for a similar event.”
