In pictures: The London Christmas Party Show 2015

Story Events' second London Christmas Party Show concluded yesterday (3 June), with visitor figures up 19% on last year.


More than 750 event industry professionals attended the show over the two days, where a total of 62 venues and suppliers, including caterers as well as event design and entertainment companies, exhibited.

The show’s NFC devices recorded 7,640 contacts, which represents a 32% increase when compared to last year’s show.

The show featured entertainment from Fullcircle and Cirque Le Soir throughout the two days, meanwhile caterers The Recipe provided exhibitors and attendees with lunch, afternoon tea and refreshments in the main winter wonderland area, which was created by Event Prop Hire.

Dirty Martini served up cocktails throughout the event, and on the final day attendees could create their own bouquets thanks to floral designers Hybrid.

Dominique Gill, director of The London Christmas Party Show, said: "We were delighted with the growth in both visitor numbers and recorded meetings in our second year.

"The show was brought alive by our magnificent main sponsors, Event Prop Hire, The Recipe, Dirty Martini, RM Productions and Full Circle, who turned our show into an interactive and engaging event." 

Matt Keen, senior event manager at Awesome Events, added: "Our team exhibited at the London Christmas Party Show for the 2nd year running at Victoria House yesterday. This show is a key date in our calendar with an opportunity to meet qualified corporate buyers and event agents looking for shared and exclusive Christmas parties. 

"We have a fantastic ROI on this event and have already secured a large exclusive event within 24 hours of the show with a high number of other very strong leads. The show was visually fantastic with awesome detail in the theming, layout and guest interactivity - ensuring guests were engaged throughout their day."
