Iconic British car manufacturer MG hosted its MG 90 event at Silverstone Racing Circuit to celebrate its 90th anniversary. Showcasing thousands of past, current and future MG cars, more than 15,000 visitors attended the two-day event including members of MG’s sales markets from as far afield as China and New Zealand.

Chambers Travel Events organised an '80s themed conference for its parent company in Glasgow last weekend at Radisson Blu Hotel for 120 delegates. Business sessions and workshops took place during the day before a 'Top of the Pops' and '80s dance night at the hotel in the evening.

The Championships, Wimbledon, one of the most watched sporting events in the world, began this week (23 June), with an array of corporate guests welcomed into the tournament’s main hospitality facility, The Gatsby Club. Operated by Keith Prowse, The Gatsby Club is expected to serve several thousand meals throughout the next two weeks, each overseen by world-renowned chef Albert Roux OBE and his team.

More than 100 guests attended the Gray’s Inn Open Day in Holborn, London on Monday (23 June), which included a showcase of the venue’s range of meeting spaces. Guests later gathered in the Gray’s Inn’s five-acre garden where they sampled canapés from chef John Campbell.
