Hilton London Bankside
“It was amazing to host a meeting at the Hilton London Bankside “in person” after 18 months. All the staff were fantastic, as always, and we all felt safe with socially distanced seating, mask wearing throughout the hotel and regular sanitising of the communal areas. The refreshments throughout the day and evening were delicious. The event staff always go above and beyond to ensure our events run smoothly and we can’t thank you enough for hosting us.”
As well as ensuring a smooth-running event and excellent customer service on the day, the team are always looking for new ways to enhance customer experience. One initiative that the team introduced in the past year was more diverse drinks packages and options for clients. They reviewed market trends and previous years’ sales to identify what products and brands were the most popular at events and built new packages that other venues might not offer. They also created a ‘Gin Experience’ package where delegates can learn about the history of different gin brands and try a flight of gin cocktails. The range of different options has proved popular with clients looking for more of a ‘wow factor’ for their drinks’ reception.
