With investment in employees and venues, the corporate event offering has seen a year-on-year growth of 10%, with summer bookings up 23% from last year with an overall forecasted growth of 20%.

Jo Anderson has joined as agency account executive from Vinopolis. Anderson assisted in the 2012 Games when Vinopolis hosted Procter and Gamble.

New agency account executive Lucy Lock’s five years in the events industry began at the publishing company Emap, co-ordinating sponsored events. Lock’s event management experience includes the Millennium Mayfair Hotel and Regents College Conference Centre. 

Laura Wilson has joined Late Night London as a direct corporate account executive from ITV.

This follows the appointment of Emma Howe to head of corporate sales at Late Night London in March and two new recruits in May.

Howe said: "2012/2013 has been a year of growth at Late Night London, specifically within our meetings and events team.

"We have listened to our clients and their needs and improved our offering with them in mind. Our venue portfolio has grown, we’ve spent time on food innovation and we’ve developed our packages.

"The Late Night London agency and corporate team is prepared to support and service the increasing demand for premium venues across London and the UK. This is particularly important as we approach the festive season."
