Event agencies from around the UK gathered at The Grove hotel, Hertfordshire, yesterday (9 April) for Leading Hotels of the World's (LHW) automotive event showcase ahead of the launch of its new automotive and incentive website.

Event professionals from the likes of Zibrant, Grass Roots and AYMTM were invited to the luxury property to meet representatives from LHW's European properties and preview their corporate events packages for automotive clients.

The group then took to The Grove's garden for an exciting teambuilding challenge, which came in the form of a wheelbarrow race, delivered by Wildgoose Events. In teams, the group had to decorate both themselves and their wheelbarrow, whilst completing a variety of peculiar challenges, before racing head-to-head.

The evening finished with a three-course dinner in the hotel's Potting Shed and an awards ceremony crowning the winners of the race and commending the best designed wheelbarrow and best dressed team.

On Tuesday (7 April) the five-star Hotel Gotham in Manchester opened its doors. The 80-year-old Art Deco Edwin Lutyens bank building has been transformed into a modern 80-bedroom hotel, though the 1930s design is maintained and celebrated throughout. The hotel features the Honey Restaurant on the sixth floor of the seven-storey building, while the VIP venue, Club Brass, is located on the rooftop.

On Wednesday evening (8 April), the team at Grand Resort Lagonissi, a MICE venue in the Athenian Riviera, hosted press and event planners at 45 Park Lane in London for an evening of Greek hospitality. Guests enjoyed canapés and drinks before being shown a short presentation on the resort.
