This client was looking for a show-stopping summer ball, for upwards of 600 guests.
The inaugural HQR Ball 2016 launched to widespread industry acclaim on Saturday 25th June in the Great Room at The Grosvenor House Hotel.
Attendance was sky high, with 660 people there on the night. Guests were made up of agents, project managers, architects, interior designers, lawyers, financiers, surveyors and engineers, main contractors and specialist subcontractors.
As families and friends were also invited, creating an atmosphere more akin to a private party than an industry event was key.
Guests were entertained with a drinks reception, three-course dinner including a fillet of Hereford beef, impressive magicians, charity raffle and an auction compered by Miles Crawford. Guests partied long into the night to the sounds of the eight-piece Hand Fulla Soul Band, and a DJ set until 1am.
The night’s charity auction and raffle raised £54,330 for the event’s chosen charities: The Teenage Cancer Trust and The Lighthouse Trust Club.
