Tuesday, 16th January 2018, London – On Friday 12th January 2018, Battersea Evolution welcomed the return of ‘Hospitality Rocks’, a post-Christmas party like no other! Created exclusively by Smart Group for those working within the hospitality and events industry over the busy festive period, the ice-cool Après-Ski party in the heart of Battersea Park, London, gave these hard-working people the opportunity to celebrate their own Christmas party in style.

Hospitality Rocks raises funds for two charities, Hospitality Action and The Springboard Charity and this year £14,656 was raised for these two worthy charities.  

Welcoming over 1,400 industry professionals through Battersea Evolution’s doors. Guests arrived to a delicious canapé reception, before enjoying a delectable three-course meal with charity games and live auctions. Breath-taking entertainment wowed guests throughout the night, including Rockaoke, the karaoke phenomenon held on the main stage, where party-goers had the chance to be the entertainment themselves. After dinner, guests took to the dodgems and fun casino, and danced to music from the live DJ until doors closed at 2am. 

It is without a doubt that Hospitality Rocks 2018 delivered a party of a lifetime to the nation’s hospitality and events industry.

Greg Lawson, CEO of Smart Group, says: “I want to thank all of the industry’s support for the 2nd year in a row, it was a chance for us to finally all get together and celebrate in style!
