London City Selection Familiarisation Trip 2016 – The Curious Incident of LCS @CitySelection #CuriousLCS #Eventprofs

The London City Selection (LCS) this weekend (4th-5th March) hosted its annual agents’ fam trip, this year entitled The Curious Incident of London City Selection, a Sherlock Holmes inspired weekend of investigative fun.

Cavendish Venues @CavendishUK were largely central to the organisation and in participation with Paul Martins as Events Chair and Hadleigh Miles Solorio being a Team Leader.

The event saw over 30 agents from the likes of Vista, Inntel and Venue Search London take part in a series of challenges at member venues across the City of London. Challenges throughout the weekend were organised by LCS’s official partners, Right Angle Events @RA_EventsLtd and their sister company the London Team Building Company @LondonTBC, and saw agents dusting items for criminal prints at America Square – Cavendish Venues along with a number of other forensic activities in keeping with the theme.

The weekend began with an evening reception at One Moorgate Place @OneMoorgate where agents were welcomed, assigned team leaders and given clues from LCS member venues before being whisked off in LCS’s own London By Routemaster, @LondonByRM for the first of a two-night stay at member hotels including the DoubleTree by Hilton @doubletreetol hosted by Team Leader Darren Housham.

This was followed by breakfast at Sadlers Wells @Sadlers_Wells before agents and their team leaders where unleashed upon the City of London to solve the Curious Incident of London City Selection by completing a series of challenges.

A lunch stop was provided at the Barbican @BarbicanVenues and the day concluded with a drinks reception enjoying Stage & The City @stageandthecity and gala dinner at The HAC @HACEvents, where winning teams were announced and prizes included lunch for six at Herbert Berger at Innholder’s Hall, a limited edition Stephen Wiltshire mounted print, a three-course lunch for four guests at The HAC and two tickets to The Mousetrap  courtesy of Cavendish Venues @CavendishUK were awarded.

Oliver Hargreaves, Chair of London City Selection, said: “Every year the fam weekend is brilliant fun and has become a key event in the calendar for many agencies. This year we’ve had a record turnout and the creative theme developed by our team building partners Right Angle Events has once again really sparked the imagination of agents involved, it’s great to see new faces from familiar companies joining in! The City of London is changing rapidly, it’s becoming a destination in its own right and this is a fun packed way to get to know the area and our member venues as an ideal location for events while enjoying a really memorable experience.”
