The world urgently needs to take action on climate change and engineers have a vital role to play in delivering clean water, sustainable energy and connectivity. A five-day conference event incorporating 70 conferences and two high profile gala dinners was designed to address these issues. The event was successfully used as a platform to identify practical ways to fund, deliver and streamline projects, thus improving the lives of millions of people. ICE and WFEO brought together thousands of engineers from around the world to One Great George Street, London to share ideas of how to address the UN Sustainable Development Goals. It was part of the ICE’s 200 bicentenary programme, the 50th anniversary of WFEO and the UK Government’s Year of Engineering. It would not have been possible without the exceptional teamwork and customer service demonstrated across all levels of the venue’s organisation.
All guests arriving into One Great George Street this week are being treated to a unique and utterly romantic floral display courtesy of TBR Floral Design. Single Red Roses in test tubes are jauntily suspended from Pink Magnolia branches which themselves are set amongst proud Red Amaryllis arrangements. Love, and the promise of Spring, is certainly circulating here!

There’s nothing wrong with biscuits and cookies, but as is often the case at this time of year most people had their fill at Christmas! To kick-start the New Year we’ve upgraded our refreshments within the Day Delegate Rate (DDR) packages we offer to include bowls of fruit, Eat Natural bars and infused mineral water. Not ready to say no to your sweet tooth – fear not; the biscuits and cookies will be there too!
Our new pots of sweets for our goodie bags have just arrived and I’m pleased to say that they come in 100% compostable packaging. One Great George Street is no stranger to sustainability – read on to discover our efforts in making the venue as green as possible.
