Happy New Year to all of our U&I followers! We hope you all had a fabulously festive few days/weeks off, and are feeling recharged, ready for the new year! We had the most amazing lead up to Christmas – It all kicked off with our Christmas Carnival in early December.
For those of you who didn’t make it, picture a champagne reception at a five star hotel, with delicious canapés and guests mingling in a luxurious suite. The lights draw down, and the main doors open to a ballerina performing an outstanding routine to a house version of the Nutcracker! It was a truly spectacular event which we are extremely proud of. Keep an eye out for the next U&I event, and trust us, you won't want to miss out!
We then had our annual Christmas Party at Euston's Director's Lounge, with Europe's No.1 Michael Bublé tribute act, Mr David Bradley. He made all the ladies swoon with his charm, and even had our MD’s father singing on the microphone at one point (smooth!). We will definitely be inviting him back for another performance in the near future, so stay tuned…
After all of the Christmas festivities, we have decided to detox this January, and our MD is on a #30daystohealthyliving plan. Follow Natalie on Instagram (@natnaaman2807) to find out how she’s doing without caffeine, gluten, alcohol and more! We’ve all got our own personal goals, but her motivation and dedication is truly inspiring to the U&I team. Good luck for the rest of the detox Nat!
Christmas was also filled with plenty of parties at one of our partnered venues (who we provide Marketing services for), View 94. They opened up again earlier this week and we are welcoming a new Chef to the team, Mr Antony Cumberbatch. His modern European flair is sure to make our taste buds tingle and we’re really looking forward to having him on board. Come join us with your U&I Concierge card and get yourself a free glass of champagne or cocktail when you order food. We've also got a very special offer on which is valid until the end of February. See below:
We have heaps of special events running throughout the year. From speed dating and romantic meals, to movie nights, ladies nights and salsa dancing classes... watch this space and check out @View94ldn on Instagram and Facebook for all the latest updates!
We are currently in full swing for a Lebanese style wedding which is being held at the largest Ballroom in London, the five star Grosvenor House Hotel on Park Lane. This is the largest wedding we have worked on, with 800 guests attending from around the world. We are honoured to have been selected to help manage the event. If you have a special occasion coming up, don’t hesitate to get in contact with us.
Did we mention that our bi-yearly #WomenInBusiness event (in partnership with the fabulous GEMMEDIA) is coming up next month?! That’s right, Diamonds & Deals is back, and this time we're taking over Milton Keynes. Join us for a day of networking, listening to success stories from female entrepreneurs across the UK, and enjoying a glass or five of Prosecco along the way!
Tickets are on sale now, and this event is in aid of Target Ovarian Cancer. If you are a #Femtrepreneur and would like to speak at the event please let us know – we still have one or two spaces left.
We are also in the process of establishing some new partnerships with local businesses to give all of our concierge members even more exclusive, luxury discounts. If you haven’t already, be sure to grab your U&I membership card here.
We have plenty more plans in the pipeline this year! We don’t want to give away too much, but we WILL tell you that we have a new Fashion brand on board, Marr Ldn, who we will be collaborating with...
Keep an eye out for our next blog post where we will be revealing even more new and exciting plans for 2018!
On behalf of all of us here at U&I, we wish you all a very happy, successful and healthy New Year.
