And staying in the City, meetings venue Middle Temple reports a 21% rise in summer event bookings in the three months to July 2015. (The venue closes in August).
A total of 138 corporate and private events were hosted during the quarter.
Total income of over £1m has been generated by summer events at Middle Temple during the May-July periods in 2014 and 2015, said Lorraine Thorne, sales and marketing manager, Middle Temple.
“It’s been a record breaking few months for the team with a large volume of enquiries and bookings for our summer season. Promotion of our award-winning gardens is a contributing factor to the bookings hike as new clients are utilising the garden entirely or as a curtain raiser to their event, before moving to the interior venue spaces.”
Middle Temple has hosted events for clients including fashion brand Pringle, NSPCC, Wedgwood Britain and Standard Chartered Bank. And new clients hosting events in the gardens, according to Thorne, include global law firm Linklaters, charity Place2be and the Institute of Civil Engineers.
