We worked with Story Events who wanted us to create an experience for their VIP visitors at the London Christmas Party Show. The show is a boutique exhibition that brings together a mix of the best Christmas venues and suppliers with hundreds of top event buyers.
The show was to be held in May 2019 at Plaisterers Hall in the City of London and an experience was required for the evening VIP event which would likely attract around 250 event agents and we could expect around a third of these to want to participate in the workshop.
Looking at one of our key gift offerings we decided to run a bauble making workshop. These are one of our most popular christmas gifts. We developed a bauble that could be quickly and easily created by guests and personalised without the need for specialist equipment. Two people ran this as a drop-in workshop to give flexibility and maximise participation. We chose a production-line format with all materials pre-prepared so that each of us could ensure that guests were supported and guided through the making of the bauble at each point. We then gift-wrapped the bauble to take home for that full Gilded Bee experience.
The event surpassed expectations with queues of eager guests keen to create a take-home gift from the event. We received positive feedback from guests and organisers and exceeded expectations regarding popularity making around 110 baubles in around 3 hours.
'The bauble making workshop at the London Christmas Party Show was a real hit with our visitors, with queues of people waiting to get creative. The professional and friendly service from Gilded Bee meant that guests had a truly memorable and unique experience. I would recommend contacting Gilded Bee if you want to add that extra bit of sparkle to your Christmas event.'
