Final preparations were well underway for our first client party since 2019 with over 250 client acceptances, when a massive spanner was put in the works – a rail strike was called for the 27th July, our party date!
Emergency zoom calls were scheduled and together with the amazing team at the Pan Pacific London, we managed to move the entire event by 24 hours to Thursday the 28th – phew! This involved rebooking the photobooth and caricaturist, but more importantly our hotels had to change their travel dates and with 14 days’ notice, we had to contact all our original guests and hope that they could make the new date!
The hosmarkhotels team worked all hours and ensured that we had over 200 event and leisure industry clients at the party. We focused on sustainability and shared our hotel partners’ achievements and plans during the evening, but more importantly we had a lot of fun and it felt so good to catch up with our industry friends and to enjoy the fun and laughter on the evening. We have definitely missed it over the past two years!
Then the lionesses won the Euros, what an achievement, the girls showing the boys how to do it! Amazing.
