This December we attended Mistletoe 2012, a superb event jointly organised by event industry groups ISIS, MPI and SiTE. The event, held at swanky East London’s Tobacco Dock, was a great opportunity for people working in the event industry to get together, share ideas, and let their hair down after a very busy year.
Lisa Virtue, our marketing manager, won the 2012 Hire Achiever Award at the Event Hire Association Awards. As part of this award, Lisa spent a month working for Party Premiere Central – a furniture hire company in Texas – where she attended a number of events organised by the American ISES chapter. Greatly impressed by the ISES events in Austin, Lisa was keen for Furniture Hire UK to take part in some ISES events in the UK – and so off to Mistletoe we went!
The event was very popular, with around 350 people attending from a vast spectrum of companies involved in the events industry. We were treated to great entertainment, including music from the Urban Soul Orchestra and food from The Recipe.
