The Riverside Company Conference
Private equity firm The Riverside Company held its conference at London's Rosewood Hotel on 9 December 2015. The event saw 100 delegates attend, flying in from around Europe and the US. The Rosewood Hotel was chosen as the venue due to its location - near the firm's London office - and its accessibility from a number of London airports.
AOK Events delivered the event alongside the Riverside marketing team. To create a more intimate setting for the event, the venue was decorated with soft furnishings and lamps to build a relaxed atmosphere.
Stephanie Fraser, marketing consultant at The Riverside Company, says: "The meticulous support from AOK Events in planning and executing this event ensured we exceeded expectations and delivered the conference with phenomenal success."
