During the day the CBI Conference Centre is the epitome of a professional business venue...
But as evening falls the wonderful glass concourse above Oxford Street takes on a whole new atmosphere and we wanted a chance to show it off. Our venue team enlisted the help of specialist event management companies Planit and Firecracker Works to turn the venue into a stylish, dramatically lit and downright sexy bar and function room making it one of the best located ‘nightclubs’ in London.
150 people attended the evening event on March 18th and enjoyed champagne and canapés as they took in the busy atmosphere of Oxford Street below or chilled out and chatted in the cinema lounge.
The initials CBI usually stand for Confederation of British Industry but did not seem quite so appropriate in the clubby atmosphere and guests were asked to come up with different words using the same initials. Some excellent suggestions were received (most unrepeatable) and were rewarded with prizes.
Nathalie Glaser – General Manager at the CBI Conference Centre was delighted with the way the venue looked and with the turnout and said:-
‘This venue really does have a split personality – a perfect business environment during the day but in the evening we have transformed it into an atmospheric function suite. The guys from Planit and Firecracker Works have done a great job with lighting, furniture, a central bar and funky furniture and it works a treat. With such a great location above Oxford Street it is a great addition to the London party venue scene.'
