Site tours led by our industry experts are an ideal way for students to learn how to apply theory to practice. Our Certificate in Venue Management course recently undertook a tour of London's W Hotel in the epicenter of the city’s cultural core. Plugged in to the pulse of London’s energetic social scene, the W Hotel is where louder-than-life Soho mixes with the glitzy West End.
Thanks to Emma from the W Hotel who provided inspirational and informative commentary about the W's event offerings and insight into London's thriving event scene.
Highlights of the tour included the stunning design of the perception bar event room (with Europe's largest glitter ball), the intimate atmosphere of the screening room, the crazy photo booth and the Retox/Detox suites.
