On Saturday (24 May), Corporate Events delivered Heineken's VIP corporate hospitality event at Cardiff Castle for rugby's Heineken Cup Final and the Uefa Champions League Final. Attended by 550 of Heineken's top customers and stakeholders, Cardiff Castle was transformed into a Europeans Champions' Village. After the match at Millennium Stadium, guests returned to a screening of the Champions League Final hosted by Sky Sports' Chris Kamara.

MPI's UK and Ireland Chapter's new board gathered for the first time for MPI Networks at the Grange St. Paul's Hotel London last night (29 May). Around 40 people attended the event and heard about MPI's plans to launch an educational 'Boot Camp' event in September as part of the association's focus on certification.

Last night (29 May), Guoman's Tower Hotel in London hosted a showcase of its full range of meeting spaces and guestrooms to event industry professionals. The hotel also launched its new corporate package, which includes a speedboat ride along the Thames with London RIB Voyages. Luckily, the weather stayed dry long enough to allow guests to give it a try!
