Searcys at Vintners’ Hall, in conjunction with London & Partners, welcomed more than 30 Destination Management Companies (DMC’s) to an event on 31 January to showcase the grandeur, services and creative catering skills that are available at the exclusive venue as well as its links to the rest of the Searcys Collection of leading venues.
Searcys, who provide Vintners’ Hall with catering and event management services, served up a range of delectable street food, champagne and provided entertainment as part of the reception to the group of DMC’s, who regularly hold a host of events in and around the City of London.
As part of Searcys growth and business development strategy both the individual venue teams and Searcys’ Central Sales team are constantly seeking new ways to engage with potential clients and influencers. DMC’s regularly advise a host of clients on venue choice, making them key influencers in the event management process.
Patricia Paixao, sales and marketing manager for Searcys at Vintners’ Hall, said: Our partnership with Vintners’ Hall allows them to provide uniquely creative catering, and we were delighted to showcase this to all our potential clients. Our event hosted over 30 DMC’s who are some of the industry’s most influential individuals, and between Vintners’ and Searcys, we once again delivered the perfect balance of creativity, flexibility and service. Our aim is to inspire our potential clients and give them a wonderful, memorable experience.”
Damian Oracki, CEO of Showslice UK, who specialise in venue sourcing and sharing event infrastructure, commented; “This is my first time at Vintners’ Hall and what an incredible venue! I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending it to any of my client. Vintners’ Hall is truly spectacular and so enriched in history – it’s like a historic hidden gem in the heart of the City of London.”
Principal London DMC is a dedicated Destination Management Company servicing clients across the globe. Rose Whittle, Head of Operations for the company, said; “It’s the first time that I have visited the venue however I have heard of it because it has an excellent reputation. I have many international clients that seek something unusual and quintessentially British. Vintners’ Hall would be perfect for them, particularly for a Gala dinner or reception – the quality of the food and beverages served by Searcys this evening was exceptional.”
