For example, ‘Haymarket Network’ hosted the first ever private function at the Orbit in the Olympic Park, in June with brands including BP, BMW, BT, Cadbury and Lloyds TSB and all in all about 100 guests in attendance.
The Haymarket event was ostensibly to thank its clients for their investments and demonstrate some exciting projects and opportunities still to come in the run up to the 2012 Olympic Games in London.
Commercial director for Haymarket Network, Mark Hanrahan said:
“This was a once-in-lifetime event to celebrate our outstanding Olympic work and our relationship with our sponsors and brands. It was a great success and the evening, and the spectacular views were enjoyed by all.”
But how do you go about hiring the Orbit for a private function like this? Well the first place to contact might be the Olympic Park Legacy Company, who will own the structure and take over responsibility for the Park from the Olympic Park Legacy Company, and additional powers including planning powers from October 2012 from the Olympic Delivery Authority and London Thames Gateway Development Corporation.
It says something when you host an event within a work of art. Designed by Anish Kapoor and Cecil Balmond, the ArcelorMittal Orbit in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park is the UK’s tallest sculpture. Standing 22m higher than the Statue of Liberty, it offers unique views across the Park and Greater London from two glass-enclosed platforms both of which are available to hire. The ArcelorMittal Orbit is ideal for intimate yet impactful events, from drinks receptions and fine dining to press launches and business briefings.
