In keeping with the 2020 spirit of collaboration, we are thrilled to be partnering with SITE GB to bring our collective communities of #eventprofs together for THE must-attend event of the festive season.
As we are unable to mark the end of a tough year and celebrate the festive season in the usual way, we have teamed up to bring you the next best thing – a great big virtual Christmas party. Register for your place here.
Starting at 4pm on Wednesday 16 December, the event will feature live entertainment including headline act 80s pop icon Tony Hadley, virtual mingling, fun and games. It’s free to attend, although we are giving everyone the option to donate £10 to buy Christmas dinner for a homeless person.
We have partnered with Townsend restaurant, to give you the option to order Christmas dinner direct to your home, ready to cook and heat and enjoy with colleagues and peers during the event. Time Out described Townsend restaurant’s recipe boxes as “top-notch restaurant food, focusing on simple dishes that owe their deliciousness to fresh, high-quality ingredients.” Delivery is UK wide, and you can order a three-course dinner ready to heat and serve, with drinks, for just £36. Order your Christmas dinner here.
SITE board director Chris Parnham said: “SITE GB has always had a great reputation for our Christmas event – its really well attended and the one that everyone wants to be at, so we wanted to keep that vibe even though we can’t meet in person. micebook has been really active in the events industry this year and built up a great community, so it made sense for us to collaborate.”
Chetan Shah, micebook founder, added: “We wanted to put on an event to celebrate our community and give something back to thank everyone for their amazing contribution over, what has been the most difficult year for many and one we will never forget. Collaboration has been such a benefit over this time, and we are delighted to partner with SITE GB who always hold The Christmas bash of the year, and we hope we can deliver some cheer on 16 December.”
The SITE GB and micebook Christmas party also provides the perfect opportunity to get your team together to eat, drink and be merry. Why not book a virtual table for your team, and treat them to a delicious dinner and wine delivered straight to their doors? Then sit back, enjoy and let us do the rest – with an afternoon and evening of games, music, entertainment.
There will be a seating plan, and this will be shared before the event, though guests will be able to table hop after the first entertainment act and mingle in virtual bars. Please contact Caroline Lumgair Georges [email protected] to book a team table otherwise you will be randomly seated.
Raising money for Meeting Needs has always been a big part of the SITE GB Christmas annual lunch. And this year will be no different. Raffle tickets are available to buy now at £5 a strip or 5 strips for £20, with a fabulous Christmas Fortnum & Mason hamper up for grabs. There will also be an online auction.
