Agents don their Pinstripes and Pearls for record attendance at London City Selection Fam weekend

London City Selection fam trip
London City Selection (LCS) is celebrating this week following record attendance at its Pinstripes and Pearls themed annual agent experiential event at the weekend (March 7 – 9th). With 35 agents attending, including representatives from BI Worldwide and Venue Search London, the LCS team put together various vintage themed challenges at a number of the selection’s venues for the eight agent teams to complete.

Each team competed for the final prize package which included a choice of dinner for two at the Gherkin, hotel stays at Apex City of London and The Montcalm and dinner and tickets to a performance of choice at the Barbican. The winning team, the Swingin' Things', led by Fiona Macpherson from etc Venues was announced at the final Gala Dinner, held at Ironmongers’ Hall on Saturday night.  

With twenty-two of the selection’s venues participating, the agents enjoyed a full itinerary of activities. Following a welcome reception at Middle Temple on Friday, where attendees were allocated an LCS team leader, the agents enjoyed breakfast at Sadler’s Wells theatre on Saturday morning to prepare them for an active day of team challenges such as life-sized Cluedo at the HAC and Charleston dancing at St Brides Foundation. Prizes were also given for ‘Best photo of the day’ and ‘Best Tweet of the day’ with the #VenuePearls hashtag on Twitter achieving a total Tweetreach of 265, 000 impressions.  

London City Selection Events Chair Lorraine Butler says: “The Pinstripes and Pearls weekend was such a great success. We had an incredible amount of interest from agents from the outset, with the event fully booked weeks in advance, and there was a real buzz of excitement before and throughout the weekend. As always it was such a fun event and the agents truly enjoyed themselves; we have received some fantastic feedback already.”  

Notes of thanks and positive feedback have already been received from numerous agents including First Choice, Crescent Associates and Pineapple Events. Linda Elsdon, Director of Leslie Edward Events and Consultancy said: “The whole weekend was incredible. It was amazing to see the venues and meet with the relevant representatives from the portfolio.”  

London City Selection Chair Diane Waldron says: “We are delighted that the Pinstripes and Pearls weekend was so well received by agents. The aim of the weekend is to improve agent knowledge of our venues in the City whilst having fun and experiencing our facilities first hand. We have had such a fantastic response from agents and the theme this year was a great choice. Our social media activity also enhanced the event and it’s always exciting to see agents interacting and getting a real buzz from the event. We are looking forward to our 2015 Fam weekend already!”
