On Tuesday (10 November), Land Rover teamed up with Abercrombie & Kent to launch its new corporate arm, Land Rover Adventure Travel. The new branch will offer Land Rovers to groups for short, luxury trips, with packages giving groups the opportunity to be trained by a professional driver before taking on an outdoor adventure. The global programme was launched at 12 Hay Hill Mayfair to a number of event professionals including corporate planners and agencies.

Also on Tuesday, more than 150 event professionals gathered at London’s Banqueting House for a street party that took them through six different decades, starting off in the ‘50s and ending in the present day. Every half an hour the lighting and music changed to welcome in a new decade, playing the most famous songs and bands from each era. The entertainment was also fitted to the decade and included a close harmony trio, acrobats and a contortionist. 

Easyjet also celebrated its 20th birthday this week, unveiling a specially designed aircraft to more than 500 staff at a hangar near Luton Airport. The plane, which was decorated with more than 100,000 messages and holiday snaps from the airline’s customers, was the focal point of the event.
