We started the year started hosting events mainly for the medical, science and pharmaceutical industries, but 41 Portland Place has grown to establish itself as a versatile venue for a range of clients. The team now delivers all kinds of high quality events in central London and has found no event too challenging to perfect
Designing and delivering superb catering from highly refined sophistication to fun and flamboyant is something of which 41 Portland Place has been justifiably proud. Head Chef Will Carvalho in tandem with our hospitality wizards Harbour & Jones continue to put on amazing receptions, exquisite intimate dinners, alfresco terrace parties and reception canapés to die for.
Our event highlights have been :
- The official opening of 41 Portland Place by HRH The Princess Royal attended by over 200 distinguished guests who were treated to a sparkling afternoon tea with a mouth watering selection of tea sandwiches and cakes prepared by Chef Will Carvalho.
- The Festive Finery showcase for Ernest Jones’s new jewellery and watch range. A team of stylists transformed the first floor at 41 Portland Place into a stunning backdrop to bring the new range to life. 100 journalists from publications including Vogue, Grazia and Marie Claire feasted on an amazing range canapé throughout the day experiencing our entire menu from breakfast to supper in bite size perfection.
- A two day series of video conference interviews for a high profile environmental organisation at which the interviewers connected with candidates in Peru, Ethiopia, Japan, Australia, South Africa and five other countries.
All profit generated from our first year of events at 41 Portland Places has been used to fund activities run by the Academy of Medical Sciences to ensure research is rapidly translated into benefits for patients. So we wanted to say a huge thank you to all our customers. We look forward to running events for you in the coming year.
