Utilising London’s largest hotel, last week the Effective Events team worked with the world’s largest global provider dedicated to banking and payments technologies: FIS, to produce their annual International Client Conference.
FIS’ Global Banking Perspectives 2013 brought together over 300 of the banking sectors most influential people for an engaging three day conference. In order to provide the perfect blend of educational and networking opportunities (as FIS offers it’s attendees each year) we recommended London’s Park Plaza Westminster Bridge hotel – providing spectacular views along with high-spec conference technology and flexible meeting space, it’s the ideal hotel for tourists and business guests alike.
Day one saw the first of many successful user groups take place on the flexible Plaza suite level, where rooms can be divided or expanded to fit the exact needs of each meeting.
As important as finding the right venue is, it’s also essential to ensure guests are entertained in the evenings of multiple-day events. On arrival night we put on light refreshments in the Exhibition area to officially open the event and allow guests to undertake a little informal networking.
Night two needed a change of scene to keep delegates energised so we took everyone on a scenic river cruise aboard the stunning Silver Sturgeon. Guests mingled with welcome drinks (and beautiful sunshine!) on the top deck before heading inside to enjoy a delicious dinner & soulful sounds of our live band.
Our knowledgeable UK based team also provided additional services such as group dinner reservations and airport transfer services to ensure delegates arrived relaxed and ready for productive conference days. Have a look at our other DMC services here.
