ITE Chairman’s Ball
The Chairman’s Ball is an annual dinner event that has been held at many prestigious venues in London. The client was looking for a space that was unique but also had the wow factor.
Initially they wanted to hold the event at a location where guests would be able to stay onsite as multiple guest were from overseas. However, when they saw the Wallace Collection Courtyard, they knew it would be the perfect location. The guests started in the gallery’s upstairs where they could immerse themselves in the iconic artwork, before heading down to the Courtyard for their seated dinner and evening entertainment. The space is extremely versatile and the incredible glass ceiling allows for an abundance of light to come through and compliment the space whether it be summer or winter.
Entertainment for the event included a harpist to welcome guests in the galleries, singing waiters to surprise the guests whilst they enjoyed their dinner and a 5-piece band to really get the dance floor going in the evening.
As well as the venue management and overseeing all the entertainment. We had to source the caterers for the event as they don’t have an onsite team. We recommended Zafferano’s who are a company we have worked closely with before and the client was extremely impressed with the quality and professionalism they inputted into the event. From using company colours on the food décor to thinking of all the little details including using sound proof matting under the table cloths to eliminate risk of having the plates make too much noise, due to the ceilings being so high.
In addition to the event, as there was no on-site accommodation, we also arranged for XX bedrooms at the Landmark hotel for all of the guests, as well as managing the transport for the guests to and from the hotel via private cars.
It truly was a grand event.
