Executive events are about creating an experience for guests. They are built around great wine, great food, great company and great ambience. It’s about giving people enjoyable memories that will cause them to remember you fondly. Then they will want to do business with you in the future.
Think of executive events and executive dinners as a business-development strategy. You can brand yourself and your company by creating memorable and enjoyable social events that people will long remember and always associate with you. Hosting executive events is a great way to become a centre of influence. With this in mind, every event you put on is an opportunity to create a positive impression in the minds of others. However, creating a memorable experience doesn’t need to bust your budget. Our corporate event managers can put together a bespoke package that delivers on price and objective for your business.
Corporate events in London
London is full of breath-taking views, grand accommodation and luxury shopping. This is why AWD’s Luxury Weekend at The Shangri-La at The Shard is the ideal venue for hosting executives. Corporate events at the Shard, including dinner in the Shangri La restaurant, will be sure to wow your guests.
Start with cocktails at the GŎNG; located on the 52nd floor holding the title of the highest hotel bar in Western Europe. Once you have settled in, you can enjoy dinner in an exclusive dining room with floor to ceiling windows, perfect for viewing the skyline. After dinner, drinks can be enjoyed in GŎNG. The cocktail menu offers a wide selection of drinks inspired by the greatest directors of all time including George Lucas and Steven Spielberg.
On Saturday start your day off with a delectable breakfast at The Shard between 7am and 11am. You can then fill your day with sightseeing, shopping and London experiences, including the London Eye. These can all be arranged for you. Activities in London are endless; visit famous locations such as Buckingham Palace or add a touch of retail therapy to your trip with shopping at Harrods. It offers an activity for everyone no matter what their interests.
After a day of exploration, return to the Shangri-La for some free time and relaxation before spending the evening in an exclusive room at a London West End Theatre with pre-show and interval drinks. After a delightful show and upon return to the Shangri-La, enjoy dinner in Hutong in The Shard. The award-winning restaurant serves northern Chinese cuisine with an interior of red lanterns and hand carved wooden ‘Moon Gates’ to match, all surrounded by the Shard’s famous floor to ceiling windows allowing a panoramic view of London.
