Intu Properties Summer Party


Tasked with breathing new life into Intu Properties’ annual summer party, Broad Bean Events was asked to manage the end to end operation of its next event.

Dealing with multiple decision makers and reporting to 14 heads of departments, we lead the organisation of the corporate event for over 200 members of staff, from venue sourcing, full event design and production, to catering and entertainment.

After sourcing a selection of venues and presenting several themes, the client decided on a twenties Great Gatsby-style party at the Corinthian Hotel Ballroom, London. Working closely with our strong industry connections, we were able to transform the space into 1920s speakeasy with higher production values than the client had ever experienced, incorporating a full size open top car for photo opportunities, vintage furniture, a chequered dance floor, gold palm trees and over 130 glitter filled balloons. Finished with a swing band and interactive chorus girl line, the theme followed through from dinner to dancing.

As a team we knew that we had created something special, because of the overwhelming positive feedback we received from the attending staff. The event proved an incredible morale boost for Intu Properties’ workforce, and as a result of our success we are now planning their winter party, in addition to working closely with their sister company Capco on further London events.
