It’s all smiles in the Event Genius office after their cashless payment system – Event Genius Pay – took home the award for Best Sales Technology at the Event Tech Awards after twelve months of successful event deliveries and new feature releases including mobile top-ups and an enhanced self-serve reporting suite. The win follows up being named Best Ticketing Provider earlier in the year (Event Production Awards) and is also the second award win for Event Genius Pay specifically after picking up the Innovation award at the Ticketing Business Awards in 2018. The technology has been a focus for the company over the past two years, with 2019 recording more than double the amount of event deliveries in 2018, and more than double this number again already booked in for 2020. This growth represents a significant level of trust which the company has developed over years of successful deployments working alongside the likes of Annie Mac’s Lost & Found Festival (Malta), BPM Festival (Portugal), Forbidden Forest (United Kingdom), Chelmsford Racecourse (United Kingdom) and many more. . Lauren Lytle (Head of Operations, Event Genius) commented: “This summer has been a landmark season for our teams with more events than ever before and a string of new features and functionality to deliver to sites all across the world.

Lumiere London is proud to announce the opening of its latest venue, The Embassy, on the prestigious Grosvenor Place in Belgravia

Event Industry News

Running along the western edge of Buckingham Palace Gardens, and just minutes from Hyde Park Corner and Victoria tube stations, Grosvenor Place boasts a rich history dating back to the 18th century and offers today an easy access to many of London’s most renowned landmarks, including Harrods, Apollo Victoria Theatre, Park Lane, Piccadilly and Green Park. With the Irish Embassy as neighbour, the terraced building once accommodated (among others) the Association of Public Health Inspectors ‘The Sanitarian’ and Midland Bank Plc, one of the Big Four banking groups in the UK for most of the 20th century. With exceptional attention to detail, the spacious ground floor has been lovingly reverted back to its original décor with high ceilings, sparkling chandeliers and hand painted walls and mouldings. Designer furniture from Jonathan Adler, Andrew Martin and Timothy Oulton are combined with original Louis Philippe mirrors and create an atmosphere, grand enough for even the most demanding client. Luscious fabrics, discrete lighting and designer pieces transfer the original vault rooms on the lower ground floor into a unique break-out area, ideal for smaller groups and in the future intended for art exhibitions. Established in the actual bank vault, the Palladio Room offers the perfect space for private meetings and conference calls, its beautiful wallpaper, fabulous mirrors and the print of the original Buckingham Palace making this a one of its kind experience. Our state-of-the-art AV equipment includes the latest sound system by Bang & Olufsen, individually designed speakers by David Lynch, the outstanding large 4K display and the Sennheiser PA system. Every booking request or question will be personally answered by our skilled booking team, Ona and Esther, armed with the knowledge and experience of all that Lumiere London has to offer. Multilingual in English, Spanish, Italian and Japanese, they provide packages, tailored at the individual client’s needs and budgets. Our Head of Hospitality Laura is trained as a professional sommelier and will create a bespoke client experience, delivering luxury catering, ranging from nutritious corporate lunches and private dining experiences to glamorous receptions and canapés. With a wide range of international cuisines and a variety of diets such as vegan, vegetarian, halal and lactose requirements, the client is guaranteed to find the perfect menu. Our incredibly creative and versatile team is complete with Nitin, Libera, Andreia, Stephania and Taylan, coming from China, India, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Germany, Turkey and the UK, making sure the client has an unforgettable experience at Lumiere London, from arranging the perfect set-up for their event to ensuring the PowerPoint presentation runs smoothly. The team is headed by Lumiere London’s flagship creative visionary and acclaimed fashion photographer Carlos Lumiere. Having lived in New York, Paris, Milan, Miami, Madrid and Hamburg, Carlos has worked for clients and magazines such as ELLE, Harper’s Bazaar, Cacharel, Vivienne Westwood, Longines, Royal Ascot, Christian Lacroix and Dunhill. His husband and Lumiere co-founder Stephan Trockle comes from the entertainment industry, working as Production Executive on Dustin Hoffman’s directorial debut QUARTET with Dame Maggie Smith and as Assistant Producer on the Oscar-nominated INVISIBLE WOMAN, starring Ralph Fiennes as Charles Dickens, Felicity Jones and Kristin Scott Thomas. They are the beating heart of Lumiere London and the reason why we won ‘Best Venue Team of the Year 2018’ and received numerous nominations, including ‘Best Venue for Employing Women and Gender Equality’. Founded in 2007, Lumiere London started originally as Carlos’ photographic studio in the illustrious Menier Chocolate Factory in London Bridge and over time expanded into an event space used by third parties for filming, photography and corporate events. In 2014, Carlos choose to take on an even larger venue in a former printing company in Southwark, impressing clients with his unique eye for light, creative decor and interior design. As the client base grew, so did the studios with the latest inclusion of the ‘Tropical Library’ on the second floor where exotic prints and plants add character to events. Next door, the Gallery feels like a New York-style loft and comes with its own kitchen. The sharply contemporary White Loft on the third floor has hosted conferences and product launches, while the adjacent Victorian Loft’s cosier aesthetic suits more intimate events or receptions. Today we are proud to have a long-term relationship with national and international clients including Facebook, IKEA, Unilever, Nestle, Virgin Media, Daimler Benz, Disney, Coke Cola, McDonalds, Puma, Adidas, Nando’s, all major banks, broadcasters and accountancy firms, to name only a few.
