1 Wimpole Street held their inaugural autumn showcase on Wednesday 7th October 2015 and it was a resounding success. Striking external lights coloured in the 1WS branding beckoned guests into the Royal Society of Medicine’s HQ building where they were greeted with the full red-carpet treatment complete with flashing photography by the cheeky chaps from Event Paparazzi.
On arrival guests were lead into the beautifully lit atrium where they enjoyed a glass of fizz and a selection of canapés before being taken through to the Max Rayne Auditorium. The showcase was designed to present the new audio-visual technology that was installed in the theatre during the summer.
The presentation was led by our guest host Gareth Dimelow from George P Johnson and co-hosted by the Director of 1 Wimpole Street, Nigel Collet. As an ice breaker the talented Costas from the in-house audio-visual team had created a fun video featuring the venue’s prime location, 1 Wimpole Street, the Heartbeat of London.

Nigel then went on to speak about the venue and its audio-visual technology equipment. Gareth gave a very insightful talk and helpful advice to event organisers about how to organise and deliver succinct, relevant and useful events to the right audience. During the presentation the audience were able to communicate with Gareth and Nigel using their mobile devices via Sli:do. The audio-visual team also made the most of having the limelight by showing off the live video streaming technology by doing a fun quiz and filming from various locations around the venue including the RSM library on the first floor.
After the presentation everyone went back to the atrium for some fabulous street food style bowl food and bite size buffet food samples taken from the new 2016 menu; this was presented on delightfully themed stations and included the ever popular ‘make your own Eton mess’. Thank you to everyone who attended and helped make the event a huge success.
