The announcement marks the start of a two year headline partnership between LVP and The Meetings Show, that includes delivering the hosted buyer welcome reception as well as catering throughout the hosted buyer lounges and at The Association Meetings Conference provided by LVP’s sister company Levy Restaurants UK.
“Dartmouth House in the heart of London is the perfect backdrop for our welcome reception and we are delighted that Lime Venue Portfolio has been able to offer us such a stunning, high profile venue for the first night of The Meetings Show,” said The Meetings Show’s event director, Steve Knight.
The event will also see LVP partners join together to showcase their specialist skills and products to deliver an unforgettable experience for The Meetings Show’s hosted buyers. LVP will provide the venue, whilst food and drink will be delivered through Levy Restaurants UK’s heritage brand Leith’s and special events caterers, Payne and Gunter. Event theming and entertainment will be provided by specialist Eventologists to bring the spaces alive, while AV and production will be delivered by EMS Events. ‘Lick Me I’m Delicious’ experimental food installations will deliver some tongue-twisting creations, whilst tech-inspired team building company, Wildgoose, will provide the opportunity for guests to take part in a challenge to win some truly exciting prizes.
Knight continues: “We are delighted that this partnership goes far beyond the hosted buyer reception to encompass a range of activities across the whole of The Meetings Show week. In particular Lime Venue Portfolio’s quality of service and catering has ensured that this partnership includes unique access to our buyers and we once again look forward to working closely with them in the run up to the show.”
Commenting on the event, which is exclusive to hosted buyers, those attending The Association Meetings Conference and LVP guests, Richard Kadri-Langford, Head of Marketing at Lime Venue Portfolio said: “Following on from last year’s successful event, we have seen a noticeable increase in awareness of our service and our portfolio of venues.
