Oysters Summer Party Last night (5 July) the collection of 20 UK offices of international tourist boards and convention bureaus, The Oysters, held their fourth annual Summer Party at One Marylebone, London.
 
The event attracted 150 meeting industry professionals and the Oyster representatives put on a range of experiences showcasing each country’s unique assets, including a Kylie impersonator from Australia, Santa Claus from Finland and Cypriot folk dancers. Sweden’s male model, dressed only in fetching underwear, created quite a stir.
 
Guests arrived to the beat of South African drummers and then sampled a range of dishes from all over the world, from Irish oysters to savouries from Cyprus, Italian limoncello to dates from Oman. The more adventurous enjoyed gastronomy classes featuring Maltese kannoli and sushi from Japan, as well as food tasting from France’s Olive Tapenades Atelier.
 
After all the eating and drinking, guests could indulge in some pampering with an Icelandic hand massage at the Blue Lagoon Spa. The ‘Wellness’ corner was also a huge draw, with Maltese nail-painting or head and shoulder massages as well as Swedish massage physiotherapy, while Dubai’s henna tattooist and South Africa’s face painters were kept busy. Switzerland’s intriguing farm animal-themed football table was also inundated with devotees, possibly inspired by Euro 2012.  
 
Oysters’ spokesperson Marie Anne Barthet Brown commented: “We knew that this year we would have our work cut out following the success of previous events. But the response from guests has been amazing.”

The event was sponsored by Centaur’s Meetings Show UK, as part of an exclusive marketing partnership announced 6 June.
