London City Selection reveals who took the Iron Throne during Game of Venues
The City of London’s venue consortium, London City Selection (LCS), hosted its 10th annual agency familiarisation weekend (22-23 February); the hotly anticipated ‘Game of Venues’ inspired by Game of Thrones.
The ‘super’ FAM saw 21 corporate and event agents join member venues for a weekend of Game of Throne’s themed activities and challenges, such as recreating the infamous ‘death of the King’ scene, dining and entertainment, as well as exclusive tours of handpicked event spaces within the collection of modern, heritage and unique City venues.
The themed activities were provided by Right Angle Events, and saw teams, led by venue member representatives, go head to head to be crowned Lord of the Seven Kingdoms. Victors, who took their seat on the Iron Throne, were ‘Queens of The North’ with team members from E2E Events and Venue Search London; in second place, ‘Let the Games Begin’, and in third, ‘Venue Slayers’.
Sonia Sansom from E2E Events, commented; “What a fabulous weekend sightseeing in London and visiting the most amazing venues coupled with excellent hospitality. We were well looked after and very pleased to be in the winning team.” Caroline Page, also from E2E Events added; “What a brilliant weekend. A fantastic way to showcase the venues and build relationships for future business.”
The weekend kicked off with a welcome reception and venue expo at One Moorgate Place, allowing agents and members the opportunity to network ahead of the following day’s activity. Day two began with breakfast at Museum of London, followed by venue tours, activities and sightseeing. The weekend ended with a gala dinner reception at Painters Hall, the collection’s newest member venue, followed by speeches, prize giving and a DJ.
Lauren Keen from Story Events/Venue Search London, commented; “The weekend was absolutely incredible, and it was great to see so many venues. I would like to thank London City Selection for organising such a great event, that I would recommend to any event agent.”
