BI WORLDWIDE's 32nd annual Partners in Success Event

Celebrating another year of Partners in Success, BI WORLDWIDE was joined by 70 Business Event Partners at Foyle's flagship book store in Central London for an evening of awards, networking, delicious food, entertainment…and not forgetting books!

As this year’s Partners in Success coincidently fell on National World Book Day 1st March 2018, BI WORLDWIDE chose to host the celebratory event at the well-established Foyle’s book store.

Business partners travelled from all over the world to join BI WORLDWIDE for an evening of celebrating success and networking – despite the weather warnings of Storm Emma! Partners were given a complimentary copy of the National Geographic Simply Beautiful Photographs book, adding an extra little touch to the special evening.

With 12 awards up for grabs, the evening agenda included a short presentation from Head of Events Shaun Casey and Head of New Business Marina Banusic, followed by an awards ceremony, recognising partners for their fantastic contribution over the last 12 months.

Shaun Casey commented on the successful year for the Events department: “BI WORLDWIDE continues to deliver a strong performance which looks like it will beat last year’s results in Event Management, the best year ever recorded for the division. Our focus continues to be how we can support the marketing mix of our clients by delivering a joined up solution in terms of communication, content, audience engagement, logistics, performance improvement and business analytics. This coming year is all about technology and innovation driving enhanced stakeholder experiences.”

"This coming year is all about technology and innovation driving enhanced stakeholder experiences”

During Shaun’s presentation, he also shared the success of the Events CSR initiative: “We are delighted with the results we have achieved with our CSR CARE initiative, raising more than £7,300 in one year with close cooperation with our business partners and a further £5,000 capital investment from Meeting Needs.”

To conclude the evening, guests continued to network over a buffet dinner provided by the fabulous Leafi Caterers, whilst a pianist played in the background – a perfect end to a perfect event!
