Meeting, Mingling & Negotiating at The Business Travel Show February 8th & 9th 2011 by Muireann King

This yearly exhibition is a favourite here at The Apartment Service, this year did not disappoint. We are celebrating our 30th birthday this year & we used the exhibition to launch the celebrations. Personnel in attendance at the show included Melanie Degand, Sara Calvo, Kim Ashmore, Nancy Mills, Tess Smith, Christian Benoit and me Muireann King. Business was brisk with a constant flow of industry buyers, suppliers and fellow exhibitors. Cards were exchanged, contacts were made and we are confident that some fantastic business will follow. Of course all work and no play makes for a dull life so some of us eagerly took up the invitation to an evening at The Supper Club – a very original super cool venue with an amazing acrobatic performance! We are looking forward to next year.

The Apartment Service representation at the Corporate Relocation Conference and Exhibition today by Esther Munoz Tong


January 26, 2011

On January 19th The Apartment Service started with its first open day of 2011... by Admin

 

We started with breakfast at 8:00am in Groveland Court and offered our guests a selection of Almond & All Butter Croissants, Fresh Fruit, Coffee and Orange Juice. At lunchtime we took the event over to Watling Street where we had a tasty selection of Snacks and Sandwiches with more refreshments on hand for our afternoon visitors.

 

During the evening we made our way over to Chancery Lane where our Sterling House properties are situated. Our guests enjoyed some hot drinks and then a wine tasting that made things more interesting. The Apartment Service is finding that our wine tasting events are well received and they allow people to imagine themselves relaxing in the warm surroundings of one of our luxury apartments. All in the middle of the busy City of London!

 

We hope you can join us at the next event send us an e-mail for further details.
