St Lucia Syon House

Brief

After a successful showcase events 2011 - 2015 for the SLTB, Seven Events were again enlisted to manage and produce their 2016 event. Due to the success of the previous year at The Grove, Saint Lucia decided to increase their budget further . The Dinner event showcases Saint Lucian Partners to tour operators and industry professionals in the UK. The venue needs suitable for an immersive Saint Lucian themed drinks reception, dinner / awards and overnight stay.


Solution

With The Grove being such a success we began the difficult task of finding another 5 star venue to trump it. After an extensive search we finally landed at The Conservatory at Syon House. This venue has a purely glassed exterior which is then surrounded by a large green garden. Within the conservatory there are plenty of Palm trees and other Beautifully exotic plants and trees that bring the inside in and also transport guests to Saint Lucia the island of greenery. With the event being in September we were able to great guests in the garden in front of the conservatory with Champagne, steel pan and carnival girls to really get the guests into the Caribbean party feel before revelling the dinner layout. Guests were then welcomed into the Conservatory which was beautifully up-lit in the traditional Saint Lucian colours. The pure white branded production set was set back in one of the venues alcoves for the evening awards, this created a central focal point drawing the guests attention forward and away from the corridors which were set up with desserts and street party surprises. As soon as the awards were over curtains hiding the entrance were dropped revelling more carnival girls and traditionally dressed girls creating that all important Caribbean Street Party. Guests could help themselves to bespoke cocktails before hitting the dance floor and dancing the night away to Soca hits!
