London City Selection

London City Selection (LCS) hosted its first ever Big City Site Visit on Tuesday (23 August), which saw 30 corporate buyers from across the country, including those from Lloyds Bank, Inmarsat and Crédit Agricole, take part in the event along with a number of LCS members. Delegates attended a showcase tour of 11 venues including St Paul’s Cathedral, One Moorgate Place, Museum of London and Barbican.

Throughout the day, guests visited their preferred venues and sampled a selection of canapés, drinks and giveaways. Corporate buyers were encouraged to visit as many venues as possible during the day, incentivised by greater chances to win more prizes with more venue visits. Prizes included dinner at Osteria at the Barbican, a private tour of St Paul’s Cathedral, lunch for two at London Wall Bar and Kitchen, designer sunglasses and several bottles of champagne.
