On Monday (12 January), Symphony Hall revealed its revamped conference and events space, which was completed by a unique staging solution from Walsall-based Staging Services.

The venue combined acoustics with custom-built tiered staging and stalls seating, and has a banqueting capacity of 620. A bespoke balustrade system using LED technology was developed especially for the project.

ISES UK's first ISES Talk event of the year also took place on Monday night (12 January) at the Radisson Blu Edwardian Bloomsbury Street Hotel in London.

Partridge Events organised the evening, where speaker Michael Jacobsen advised on bridging the gap between creative ideas and commerce. The evening’s entertainment included the singing trio Tenors Un Limited, a 3D ScanBot to take photos, and magician and illusionist Deceptionist.

On Thursday (15 January), the Natural History Museum held the launch event for its new addition, the world’s most complete Stegosaurus skeleton. Event Concept ran the event, which had a "dramatic" theme taking inspiration from the museum’s Earth Hall where it was located, and making use of the giant red globe and astronomical maps on walls.

Caterers the-recipe served food consisting of healthy, January detox canapés including broad bean kuku and goats cheese and lemon galette. Drinks on offer included green tea elixirs and earl grey champagne fizz.
