More than 200 clients, event bookers and PAs gathered at BMA House this week for a festival-themed showcase to promote their summer packages.
The festival was in full swing as guests joined in the ‘Where’s Welly?’ competition, spotting the pink wellies dotted around the venue. Guests had fun stepping into them and sharing pictures on social media using #bmafest to win prizes.
Rebecca Hurley, Deputy Head of Events for BMA House says: “We wanted to make the event as interactive as possible and encourage conversations and engagement both on and offline. We received great feedback from the ‘Where’s Welly?’ competition and it was fantastic to see so many people taking part. The event also gave us the opportunity to showcase the venue’s flexibility, as well as our charming outdoor spaces – a real unique selling point given our central London location. “
Resident caterer BaxterStorey tantalised guests’ taste buds in the Courtyard with English sparkling wine, craft beer from Greenwich Meantime Brewery and a selection of eclectic street food stalls serving Brazilian cuisine, Shawarma with drama and a fiesta of flavour from The Mexican Kitchen. Pastry demonstrations took place in the Paget Room, where guests had the opportunity to sample some of chef’s delicious delights.
Guests stretched their muscles with an energising game of table tennis made from eco-friendly materials while enjoying music from band Buffalo Tale. Other suppliers included photographer James Neale, chair hire company Yahire, flowers from In Water Flowers, furniture from Eco Furniture, Photo booth hire from Megabooth, dancefloor, stage backdrop and lighting from Free Love Group and a prize from The Montague on the Gardens.
All guests received a guided tour of the venue with the BMA House events team and were treated to welly-shaped biscuits and welly pen pots to take away.
