116 Pall Mall has successfully reopened its building once again for meetings, weddings, hybrid events and for IoD members.
With the safety of visitors and employees of utmost importance, the venue has taken extensive measures to ensure they provide a safe venue, including distancing, enhanced cleaning regimes, reduced capacities and staggered arrival times.
Another key development is the ability to offer hybrid and virtual events, and 116 Pall Mall hosted their first fully virtual event since reopening – in the format of an awards ceremony for the Institute of Directors.
The award hosts were present in the venue and were filmed and streamed virtually out to ‘attendees’ by experts from their in-house AV company – Oxygen Events.
Jeremy Warrillow, Head of Hospitality said: “We are delighted to have reopened the venue due to demand from IoD members and increased meeting enquiries. It’s great to see visitors back in the building and we can see that usage is really picking up – especially the demand for meetings. This just shows how important face-to-face interactions are for people after so long working from home and having to work with colleagues virtually.
“We’ve also seen a flurry of enquiries for micro-weddings which highlights that couples are less inclined to wait for full restrictions to lift as this virus continues. Having held many smaller weddings over the years, and after hosting our first for 30 guests since lockdown last week, we want to reassure couples that micro-weddings can be incredibly beautiful and just as much fun.
“With the regular changing of government restrictions making planning more difficult, we are keen to stress we will remain flexible on all bookings to ensure we can deliver the best possible experience for our clients.”
