The event industry is constantly changing and evolving and it is rare for event trends to remain a trend in the following year, so it is important to keep up to date with what is new and popular. To stay ahead of the game the events team are constantly visiting new and refurbished venues, event expos and keeping up to date with the latest technology.
The Nobull events team visit a number of venues and event expos on a monthly basis. This year the events team have already visited Belmond's Annual Event Planner Workshop, Hotelopoly, and London Summer Event Show, here's how we got on…
In January, we headed to London for a 'Great British Holiday' at the London Summer Event Show where we had the chance to meet a large range of event venues and suppliers. Once we arrived it was like stepping into a summer holiday, we were greeted with super tasty homemade gelato from Nonna's and began our journey of event discovery. We attended Venue Search London seminar on the 'Top 10 New London Venues' for 2017. We can't wait to visit all of the venues mentioned but here are a few of the ones we got really excited about - Printworks, The Distillery and The Ned.
The rest of the day we visited lots of suppliers and met some amazing venues as well as attending one of the workshops; where we learnt how to create the perfect pasta with Jamie Oliver's Cookery School. To finish the day we were treated to pick 'n' mix on our way out which was a perfect way to end a great day!
On the 3rd February the events team visited the Belmond's Annual Event Planners Workshop where we had the opportunity to meet the general managers and sale directors of some of their iconic properties worldwide where they shared all their latest updates and the best secrets of the their portfolio and locations. Our favourites were Belmond Grand Hibernian, Belmond Italy and Belmond Asia.
Most recently the events and travel team visited Hotelopoly where we got to meet general managers and sales managers from hotels from all over the world. The Beaumont, Dolder Hotel and Palazzo Parigi are just some of the hotels we got to meet whilst trying some amazing food and drink.
We're only in February and we've already seen some great new venues for 2017 to add to our little black book of venues. We can't wait to see what 2017 has to offer and can't wait to share these venues with our clients.
