Press Show Mania at ZPR...

It’s been a week of events this week at the ZPR HQ! Starting off with the Woolworths Christmas Press Show which was a fantastic success, over 200 journalists arrived at the Hellenic Centre in Marylebone to see all the new latest Autumn/Winter 08 homeware, the ‘top 10’ toys for Christmas, children’s clothes, Ladybird fashion show and festive Christmas decorations and trees – our favourite being the bright pink version! After all the preparation that went into the show it was great to finally see it in action. Biscuit the dog, the Wii fit and Pleo the dinosaur were all huge hits, and the free Pic n Mix went down a treat with the journalists! It’s fair to say, the event was a big highlight that everyone in the office also got to enjoy! Roll on Christmas.

Another highlight of the week was the Peacocks A/W 08 Collection preview and dinner at the ultra trendy Sanderson hotel. 20 Journalists packed in to see the stylish chic fashion show in getting an insight to what Peacocks has to offer next season. After enough champagne drinking and schmoozing everyone headed to the glamourous terrace for a yummy 3 course meal and lots more champagne drinking! The feedback was fantastic, everyone loved the new collection and the night was a huge success. After a late night and an early start in ZPR offices, full English breakfasts were the order of the day the next morning!

Saturday night was yet another fabulous event, Superdrug held an outstanding charity ball at the swish Grosvenor House Hotel. A champagne reception was followed by a 3 course meal and various fund raising activities. Circus style performers amazed the crowd with dancing and impressive flexibility- inspiring us to get to yoga on a Friday morning! The ZPR table had an amazing time and danced the night away to a live PA by Booty Love! The event raised a staggering £325,000 for the Teenage Cancer Trust, Princes Trust and Kids Co. charities.
