The evening also offered the chance to network with representatives from some of the UK’s most iconic venues. 

On Tuesday night (6 October) the meetings industry gathered at 133-135 Bethnal Green Road in Shoreditch to explore Berlin as a destination at the first ever Berlin pop-up store in London.
