Have you ever met someone whose passion for what they love stops you in your tracks?
Think now. Recall that moment. That person. The light in their eye while they held you captive recounting that one beautiful goal that changed their life, the perfect cut of a turtle-green dress, or a stunning supermoon on a summer’s night. It’s impossible to forget these people and how they captured us in a moment of time.
Meet Clare. Clare de Brett. Clare is in love with spaces. Spend five minutes with Clare and you will be in love with spaces too. That’s why Meetingrooms.com jumped at the chance to bring Clare on board with the mission to find the best venues around the UK and Europe she can uncover, and bring them to you.
Clare comes laden with a treasure trove of knowledge from her MICE (Meetings, Incentives, Conferences and Events) background. Like all intrepid explorers, she bridges the void between the treasures out there and our desire to know about them, find them, and enjoy them.
One of Clare’s favourite finds is in a surprising location in Liverpool Street, London: The Andaz Liverpool Street Hotel. Sharing in Clare’s delight as she describes the first time she uncovered this gem, is like being transported. I can almost taste the Chateaubriand (for two!); the words pour out like a delicious Pinot Grigio and I’m there:
“During the hotel’s renovations, a false wall was discovered, which when found, actually hid a Masonic Temple with a marble floor and intricate gold detailing. It was hidden during the Second World War due to the value of the gold and marble – now preserved in all its glory. The space has recently been used to host a Game of Thrones pop-up banquet.”
‘There is a space out there for everything and anything you could want.’
This is why we would like Clare to tell us every week about a venue she adores, or one she has recently found. We even want her to reveal the ones she’d rather keep to herself. We don’t care where in the world it is, we know that Clare’s passion for spaces will ignite your imagination and get you on a treasure hunt for the perfect venue. And with Clare as your guide, you are sure to have a memorable adventure.
Browse our venues and let us know: which spaces ignite your imagination? We’d love to hear from you.
