On Thursday (14 May), more than 200 industry professionals gathered at the O2 to celebrate the relaunch of its 700 capacity outdoor terrace at Building Six. On arrival guests enjoyed King Bloom jam jar cocktails courtesy of Peppermint Bars, before heading to a street food avenue on the terrace designed by Light Motif. There were three food stalls and an interactive light bulb feature in the middle of the bar that reacted to tweets referencing #IbizaDocks. 

Harbour & Jones Events provided the catering which included a Brick Lane Curry stall and Mexican-themed stall, while This is Luma provided an interactive graffiti wall and the Yr Designer, which allowed guests to design and print their own Ibiza-style t-shirts and bags. Interactive Instagram technology was provided on the night by Social Playground and the evening also featured a set from one of LWE’s DJs.
