For the past 2 years, we have organised the Hyatt London Do, held at the Churchill on the last weekend in October (25 hours for the price of 24 due to the clocks changing!) We have now settled most details with the hotel and major sponsor, so are ready to advertise the event. Firstly, many thanks to American Express, who have once again agreed to sponsor the delicious gala dinner on Saturday night (and a champagne reception beforehand to add to the indulgence). The planned itinerary is below, but some parts are subject to change as they are yet not confirmed. Spaces on some parts are limited and preference will be given to those staying in the hotel on the group rate. Thursday 23rd 19:00 champagne reception, sponsored by Hyatt Regency London the Churchill Friday 24th 09:30 focus groups for American Express 14:30 behind the scenes tour of London City Airport 17:30 welcome drink and tour of the Andaz 18:30 reception and dinner in the Andaz's Masonic Temple (£49pp) Saturday 25th 10:30 tutored tea tasting £20pp 13:00 tutored cheese and wine tasting £30pp 15:00 tutored chocolate tasting £30pp 19:00 champagne reception, sponsored by American Express 19:45 3 course gala dinner with wine, generously sponsored by American Express Prize draw Goody bags The group rate is £270/290/night single/double inclusive of VAT and full breakfast in the Montagu restaurant. In addition, the Churchill is offering bonus HGP points as follows: 1 night on group rate = 1000 bonus 2 nights on group rate = 3000 bonus 3 nights on group rate = 6000 bonus 4 nights on group rate = 10,000 bonus Thus, diamond members would receive approx 17000 HGP points for a 4 night stay (please note HGP will not know about this - it is offered exclusively by the hotel for the group) All guests who stay 2 nights at the hotel on the group rate will receive entry into the prize draw. In previous years, everyone who qualified has won a prize. Last year, all prizes were hotel stays, such as 2-3 free nights in Andaz Maui, Andaz Napa, HR Hua Hin, GH Bangkok, PH Siem Reap, PH Abu Dhabi, HR Danang, GH Berlin, GH Cannes, Andaz Amsterdam or a return visit to our hosts, the Hyatt Churchill. We aim for everyone to win a prize this year, but cannot guarantee until we know the number of rooms booked. The goody bag last year was worth approx £150, including a beautiful leather passport holder from Osprey London (thanks to AMEX), a Molton Brown travel gift set, delicious treats from Salty Dog Crisps and Conscious Chocolate and a small gift from us. Booking is now open - please make your reservation directly with the hotel using group code G-FLY2 and register on the event's website. You are also welcome to invite any friends to the event (as long as they enjoy travel).
