Hello, and Happy Monday to you all!
It's been a couple of weeks since we wrote our last blog post. Sorry about us. We've been super busy planning some very exciting upcoming events, with our next one being an evening of networking & Prosecco this Wednesday at The Director's Lounge!! You can sign up for your free ticket here.
Seeing as our brand is constantly growing, and we've got lots going on, we thought we would take this opportunity to just tell you a little bit more about what we actually do here at U&I Lifestyle.
As you may or may not know, we have three main sectors of our business; U&I Travel, U&I Event Management, and U&I Marketing & Social Media Management.
Let's start with U&I Travel. U&I Travel was only born in April this year (2018) when we rebranded from U&I Concierge. This is one of the most exciting avenues of U&I, as we have teamed up with THOUSANDS of Hotels all over the world. By purchasing one of our membership cards, also known as "The Card", you will open the doors to exclusive discounts, room upgrades, VIP perks, complimentary Champagne, luxury Spa deals and more, at thousands of hotels worldwide.
Some of our partners include The Dorchester, 45 Park Lane, Corinthia, Jumeirah Hotels & Resorts, W Hotels, Sandals Resorts, Caesars Palace, Nobu Hotel, Kempinski Marbella, Sheraton Hotels, Phoenicia Beirut, The Westin New York, St Regis Resort Aspen, Santa Marina Resort, A Luxury Collection Hotel, Mykonos, Vedema Resort, A Luxury Collection Hotel, Santorini and many, many more! Basically, if you love to travel, be it for pleasure or for business, then a membership card is what you need. You'll save thousands of pounds with us, as well as experiencing the VIP perks that we offer, too.
As well as hotels, we also have a variety of other lifestyle partners, including restaurants, hair & beauty services, bars and nightclubs, spa services, fitness services and more which you can also benefit from discounted rates & other VIP treats. Some lifestyle brands that we have teamed up with include RUSH Hair & Beauty, The Tanning Shop, CUT at 45 Park Lane, The Grill at The Dorchester, Starr Luxury Cars, Tom's Kitchen Chelsea, Kouzu, Jack Wayne Fitness, The Director's Lounge, Nikki Brown Catering, Libertine by Chinawhite, Fresh Fitness Food and more... all which you can receive exclusive discounts by showing your U&I membership card or making your booking through us!
Our partnerships expand on a monthly basis, and we really are London's best kept secret. You can find out more here.
Now, let's talk about U&I Events!
Here's a random fact for you. Did you know that when Natalie Naaman started this business, we were an events-only business? We were actually called "U&I Events Management Ltd", and we operated as an events company for a whole year and a half before expanding our services outside of just events!
With events being a huge passion of Natalie and also the rest of the U&I team, the event side of things is definitely something that we pride ourselves in. Whether you need help finding a venue, organising your entertainment, finding a photographer/videographer, or perhaps you need help with getting your event branding together (invitations, press boards, managing guest lists...), the U&I Events team are here to help you every step of the way. We offer full Event Management from start to finish, and we specialise in making your event totally bespoke to you and your needs.
Some of our past events include working at some fantastic venues and with some wonderful brands, such as organising fundraisers for charities including Breast Cancer Care and Target Ovarian Cancer, launch parties for fashion brands such as Patrick Hellmann and Bershka, VIP After Parties for West End Musicals (click here to see our photos from our recent event that we organised for the Broken Wings cast), backstage management for Lebanese superstar Nancy Ajram in partnership with AM Productions, Wedding Planning & Management at Phoenicia Hotel Beirut, and many more. You can see some of our Client Testimonials here.
You can find out more about our event services here.
Thirdly, we offer Marketing and Social Media Management services, too! Whether you're a brand new small business and you need some help with your online presence/getting your voice heard, or if you're an established brand who simply doesn't have the time to manage your marketing/online branding, then the U&I Marketing team are here to help you.
We currently manage a variety on Social Media accounts, with our latest client being the W8 GYM.
Our services include but are not limited to; managing social media accounts (Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Linked In), writing content for blog posts and newsletters, photography and videography, website design, logo design and more. We create bespoke packages for each client so that we can match their needs and budget. You can find out more about our Marketing services here.
Well, there you have it. That's U&I Lifestyle in a nutshell!
Do let us know if we can help you or your business in any way. Please note that we offer corporate packages/discounts for U&I Travel memberships, so if you'd like to discuss this further then just email one of our U&I Travel team members here.
If you'd like to find out anything at all about ANY of our services or events, then get in touch here.
We hope you all have a fabulous September. By the way, how is it already September?! Absolute madness. We hope to see you at some (if not all!) of our upcoming events! You can see what's going on over the next few months here.
Make sure you're following us on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook to keep up to date with all of our fun!
