C&IT's annual Brand Book Live event took place on Monday 9 December with event planners from six different industry sectors (retail, pharmaceutical, food and drink, finance, automotive and IT and telecoms) coming together to discuss the challenges and opportunities ahead for them in the New Year. Clients such as Swarovski, Virgin Media and Advent Software were also in attendence to add to the debate.

To celebrate the farewell of Cathay Pacific's Boeing 747 flight route from London to Hong Kong, C&IT visited Phileas Fogg's house for cocktails, cakes and canapes. The airline will replace the 747 with the more fuel efficient and environmentally friendly 777 aircraft.

Abbey Road Recording Studios hosted the exclusive Record-A-Song event on Wednesday night. The evening was attended by a host of event planners who recorded their very own rendition of The Beatles classic, 'Help!'. The recording took place in the iconic Studio 2, which has been the stomping ground for world famous artists including Adele, Pink Floyd and, of course, the iconic Liverpool quartet.

A host of celebrities attended the fifth anniversary of Karen Hardy Studios as the private members club embraced the Strictly Come Dancing vibe. Those in attendance included TV presenter Zoe Ball and former Strictly Come Dancing winner Chris Hollins.
