At last I now have some spare time to report on what I have been doing recently in the world of corporate photography in London. It has been a busy time this month and kicked off with a conference for Imperial Tobacco at The Hilton Metropole Hotel London during May that saw a busy schedule for the event that was called the UKI Cluster Conference. Not to sure why it was branded that name but this somehow gives it all a meaning and direction for the participants.
The day started with all the five hundred or so attendees arriving and signing in and a pre conference lunch was held to fuel them all up for an afternoon of packed activity. Speeches from various management personnel were made and to lighten things up a bit a craft team building exercise was laid on for the attendees to show off their creative thinking ideas. This area of conferences does somewhat worry me, that you have the top personnel of a company who are most likely earning large salaries making objects out of play doh, paper and straws. But they seem to enjoy it!
The event took on a more relaxed role for the evening and all five hundred people were transferred by a fleet of historic Route Master London Buses that made their way back and forth to Madame Tussauds for the drinks reception and meal that awaited them after they had a tour of some of the areas of the famous landmark and celebrities inside!
