U&I Travel... it's time for take-off!
Last week we had the official launch of U&I Travel! We had a great turnout of guests coming from a variety of different backgrounds, including finance, construction, consulting, hospitality, and of course the one thing everyone had in common was their passion for travel.
It was a great networking opportunity for everyone; we saw lots of business cards being exchanged and overheard some very exciting conversations and business proposals. So, if you didn’t manage to make it to our event last week, be sure to keep your eyes peeled for the next event which will be announced soon.
So, team U&I met at HQ in the afternoon and gathered together all of our promotional bits before heading over to Belgravia. We were welcomed by the wonderful staff at Kouzu, and got all of our marketing material together. We also made up some super cute goodie bags for all of our guests to take home (everybody loves a freebie!)
We actually set up in record time (#EventProfs!) and had some time to spare before it all kicked off. In true U&I style, everyone was welcomed with a glass of bubbly on arrival, and the creative mixologists behind the bar created a special list of cocktails that were available during the night...the ladies definitely enjoyed these!
We had numerous members of the press attend our event, along with many lifestyle bloggers and social influencers. Keep an eye out for mentions of U&I Lifestyle and U&I Travel in the media, and feel free to share ;).

Back to our Travel launch. As with any U&I event we make sure our guests are well fed. We chose a delicious selection of some of Kouzu’s specialties including; Salted Edamame, Sumo Chips, Baby Squid, Rock Shrimp Skewers and Prawn Tempura. Of course, we also had some signature Sushi platters being distributed amongst the crowd. Everyone went wild over the exotic food and were extremely pleased with the selection – there was something for everyone!
We were running a special promotion of Buy One Get One Free (we refuse to say BOGOF – it’s the fugliest acronym, ever!) all night on The Card, which meant that everyone who attended the U&I Travel launch was able to benefit by getting two cards for the price of one. We are extending this deal for a limited time – just tag us in an Instagram post @UILifestyleLtd with a picture of your favourite holiday destination and “I want #TheCard”, and we’ll send you the details on how to claim the card which will give you exclusive luxury discounts and perks around the world!
9.30pm came around so quickly, and we still had people at the venue networking away. Its wonderful to see people connect and we feel proud as a company to be able to facilitate this. U&I Lifestyle thrive in putting on events which bring people together, so if you need assistance with your new product/brand launch, networking event, corporate meeting, or any type of occasion in between, our team of event managers will be more than happy to assist. Feel free to contact us to discuss your personal requirements.
We do have to mention a hilarious moment post event. We had a car picking us up from just outside Kouzu, however the trunk space was somewhat smaller than the car we travelled into London with, so our MD happened to be squashed in the middle, our MD’s father (who very kindly came to support U&I at the travel launch) was sat up front with leftover marketing material sprawled over his lap and other members of the U&I team squashed between suitcases and banners. Did anyone else experience problems with Uber last Thursday? Seriously, we tried on three different Uber accounts and apparently there was no uber driver in the Belgravia area!?! It was still a luxury journey in a beautifully smooth Mercedes, so we can’t really complain!
