Aspiration: Show guide - 10 Show Stoppers

1. Ever fancied life in the fast lane? Don't miss Exclusive Events (H42), which is launching its superbike corporate hospitality programme, based around the UK's hottest up and coming rider, Sam Corke. Corke has been tipped as the next Carl Fogarty, and his bike will be taking centre stage on the stand. The package includes meeting Corke in the paddocks at Silverstone and lunch in an executive box.

2. Still on sport, why not book an event next to the home of English football. Wembley stadium may have been demolished but Wembley Arena and Wembley Conference and Exhibition Centre (N24) are still alive and kicking. The team will be handing out free goodies, including pens, sweets and cameras, and you can win tickets to an upcoming event.

3. If next Christmas is a cold one, Arena Events Services (D49) will be heating things up with its Las Vegas themed Christmas party packages, which include new venues in Manchester (G-Mex) and Birmingham (NEC).

4. Why not take a break from a hard day's business and treat yourself to a cold glass of champagne. The Fantastic Champagne Bar, upstairs on the gallery level, offers light displays and a panoramic view of the show below.

5. If you get the taste for champers, The Brewery (F55) is promoting a deal with Moet & Chandon that gives the London venue exclusive access to Moet's limited edition cellars so it can provide a classy thirst-quencher for any party. It will also be launching its new Christmas brochure and Moroccan-themed corporate party package, Kasbah in the Courtyard

6. You can soak up some of this alcohol by sampling the work of some of the nation's top chefs at the PKL Tasting Studio. Bluebird Events will showcase its latest delights, alongside bento boxes from Dish and offerings from Richmond Caterers (J44), Turtle Soup (E36), Food Matters, Tamarind Catering (H59), Create Food and Party Design (G33), Floridita Events and Caprice Events (R5).

7. If you've ever sat at home and yelled in disgust when a contestant on a TV game show got an easy question wrong, head to Celador International's (N66) latest offering, Millionaire Live (Upstage Theatre). This replica of the Who Wants to be a Millionaire? TV show gives up to 40 people a chance to experience the excitement, from "fastest finger first" to the final million-pound question.

8. Last year it entertained the crowds with Ice Queens; this time, Wild Lemon (F22) will be all about "the power of experience". It plans to show clients how they can dynamically brand themselves at their own corporate events, conferences and parties, part of its commitment to a modern approach to event design and production, it says.

9. If you have any worries about your design concepts, pay a visit to set designer Pandemonium (F56). Working together with agency WRP it promises to create even the wildest of party sets. Most recently it has been involved in producing a party at the Philharmonic Hall in St Petersburg, Russia.

10. If all that food and drink hasn't lightened your mood sufficiently, The Comedy Store (E54) will be promoting its Comedy To Go packages. It will now be offering its entire Comedy Store stand-up shows for corporate parties and events. The venue can tailor each event to suit specific needs, supplying individual artists, hosts, presenters, specialty acts, and the world famous Comedy Store improv team.
