On Wednesday (5 April) Searcys, a collection of restaurants, bars and venues throughout the UK, showcased one of its newest acquisitions, the St Paul’s Cathedral, to 200 corporate buyers at an exclusive event. The evening demonstrated the services and creative catering skills that are available at the historical venue, as well as its links to the rest of the Searcys Collection.

Searcys, which operates St Paul’s with catering and event management, served up a range of canapés and champagne and the evening was made even more special with a unique, private organ recital.  The evening was also supported by Lavender Green, who dressed the venue with stunning flowers, and Wise Productions, who provided the lighting and AV for the evening.

 

The Seychelles- A Taste of Bliss evening was hosted on Thursday (6 April)  in partnership with The Seychelles Tourism Board, Etihad Airways, Savoy Resort & Spa and Avenue Sales & Marketing in an exclusive roof top of the Penthouse at the Cheval Residences, overlooking Tower Bridge and The Shard. Agencies in attendance included Black Tomato, Banks Sadler, CWT Meetings & Events, Adding Value, Green Pleasant Events, Inception Global, Red Eye Events, AOK, CMM and High Commissioner of the Republic of Seychelles Mr Derrick Ally.

The exclusive preview evening included an interactive presentation and a Discover Seychelles island quiz, during which guests learnt about the wide variety of group incentive activities available in The Seychelles. Authentic Seychelles Creole food and beverages were served up by Seychelles Pop-Up Kitchen Vinn Goute.
