Delegates were transported to The Grove Hotel in Hertfordshire on a Harry Potter-themed bus where they were treated to an exclusive summer garden party.

A selection of summer cocktails and afternoon tea treats were served as guests were indulged with massages, a golf masterclass and team building activities.

Delegates were later taken to Warner Bros Studios to see the Making of Harry Potter tour, with Butter Beer, ‘Every-Flavour’ Jelly Beans and food in the motion picture’s ‘Grand Hall’ on offer. That wasn’t all of course. Some guest appearances from the movie’s animal stars as well as a stroll down Diagon Alley revealed a number of closet Harry Potter fans.

The 2014 C&IT Agency Forum continues today and tomorrow at Wembley Stadium with talks from Virgin Media, Talk Talk and Tedx, as well as one-to-one meetings taking place throughout the day.
