One Wimpole Street Wins Best Marketing Award – serving visitors one of their five-a-day at Confex 2012One Wimpole Street, London’s award winning conference and meetings venue, scooped the highly acclaimed best marketing award at International Confex 2012 by going apple crazy, giving the crowds a unique and entertaining experience, packed with a crunch!
Visitors to the stand were greeted by the sweet smell of apples and inspired by the charismatic apple juggler who gave free juggling lessons between 3-4pm every day; a sure-fire way to astound colleagues, or not, as some may argue! The team also launched a competition to win an iPad 2 every day of the show. Visitors could enter by simply watching a series of photos of the venue and count the number of strategically placed apples throughout the cycle. Apple giveaways which had the One Wimpole Street logo lasered into the flesh, housed in their own apple protectors certainly didn’t fail to impress either!
Nigel Collett, operations director at One Wimpole Street comments: “As home to the Royal Society of Medicine, we decided that ‘an apple a day’ would make a great theme for Confex 2012. This has been our fifth and most fruitful Confex to date, having seen a huge amount of interest in our stand and winning the best marketing award - an accolade to our exceptional venue in the heart of London.”
Based in central London, One Wimpole Street boasts outstanding technological capabilities, 15 versatile conference, meeting and event rooms, exceptional, fresh food and a healthy approach to business sustainability, making it the perfect choice for almost any event –from meetings and team building days to press conferences and product launches. One Wimpole Street also took the opportunity to promote their next Technology Masterclass at Confex 2012, to be held on Thursday 17th May.
Aimed exclusively at event professionals the masterclass follows a delicious hot breakfast and is free to attend. The much anticipated masterclass, the third in the series, will focus on SMO and SEO techniques, and will be an invaluable resource for anyone looking to increase their knowledge in digital marketing.

The Technology Masterclass also doubles up as a great opportunity for event organisers to sample One Wimpole Street’s facilities first hand.
