On Thursday 2nd Feb, we hosted the first PA Network event for 2017 at Karpo, part of the Megaro Hotel.

Made up of over 190 Personal Assistants from the local area, the network helps members experience the wide range of services and facilities the area has to offer (that they may have business requirements for).

Hosting a range of events creates an informal environment for PAs to meet, forge relationships, and explore the best the area has to offer, from bars, restaurants and hotels to conference, meeting and event spaces.

At Thursday’s event, PAs were greeted with drinks in Megaro Bar. Part classic film set, part fancy bordello (complete with vintage tripods, worn leather directors chairs and red velvet curtains) the downstairs bar embraces the golden era of Hollywood glamour and mischief!

Tours of the Megaro Hotel bedrooms and event spaces were then led by the team. Many were surprised to learn that in addition to the private room inside the Megaro hotel, just around the corner, the company also offers a further 6 meeting rooms. These rooms include ‘The Boardroom’ which seats up to 22, ‘The Study’ ideal for small meetings and interviews and ‘The Games Room’ featuring ping pong table, darts and PlayStation to create the perfect break out area.

Keen to get feedback from those likely to book the spaces, PAs were given some ‘not yet public’ news surrounding plans for 2 new (and quite unique!) meeting and event spaces. This was clearly well received with several enquiries having been made since the event!

On return to the hotel, PAs enjoyed wine and truffle pairing under the expert tutelage of Head Sommelier, Richard, before heading back down to the Megaro bar for cocktails, canapes and live jazz.
