New London hotel Dorsett Shepherds Bush marked its official opening last week (3 November) with an east-meets-west launch party in homage to the company’s Chinese roots. Guests enjoyed Champagne and dim sum while being entertained by a string quartet, Chinese drummers and aerial artistes.

Tuesday (10 November) saw the SS Great Britain Trust's new conferencing and events space – No.1 Brunel Square – open its doors. The new venue can hold up to 250 delegates and has multiple breakout rooms, suitable for conferences, lectures and other corporate and private events. It overlooks Bristol Floating Harbour and is adjacent to Brunel’s SS Great Britain, 'The world's first great ocean liner', which was first launched in 1843, and can be incorporated into event packages.

Luxury Knightsbridge hotel Jumeirah Carlton Tower unveiled its newly refurbished ballroom on Wednesday (12 November). The grand Art Deco-inspired space can accommodate up to 400 guests for dinner or up to 700 for a cocktail reception and features Peacock granite plinths, gold-tile columns, chandeliers and a zig-zag effect carpet all reminiscent of the glamour of the 1920s.

Rounding off, the Art Deco Great Hall at Queen Mary University of London was used to host the second annual Venuemasters London (VML) showcase on Wednesday evening (12 November). The event showcased ten of London’s academic venues and included a keynote speech by Fay Sharpe, founder shareholder at agency Zibrant, alongside networking with the member venues.
