Captivent are first at The Shard

On 15th May Captivent produced the first corporate event at the newly opened Shangri-La Hotel.

Captivent secured the Shangri-La conference suite at The Shard, giving our clients exclusive use of floor 34 of this iconic building.

As the hotel had opened only 9 days prior to the event, Captivent’s planning involved ‘hard-hat’ inspections of the event spaces whilst the builders and decorators were still onsite.

Captivent decided not to build a conventional set/stage but instead to use the amazing view of the City of London as backdrop to the main presenters, which amply reflected the ambitious plans being announced.

The event was a high profile announcement to the City and media by two well known retail brands, which drew live news crews from the BBC, ITN and Sky News.

Following the success of the event another client has also expressed interest in using the same venue.
