Macdonald hotels are a group of 45 hotels across the UK, each with its own unique style. They range from countryside to city, every Macdonald Hotel is full of individual charm and strong local character. With the venues being located from Scotland to the South of England, today they had an event at the Shakespeare globe theatre to promote their hotels to a London audience...
Founded by the pioneering American actor and director Sam Wanamaker, Shakespeare's Globe is a unique international resource dedicated to the exploration of Shakespeare's work and the playhouse for which he wrote, through the connected means of performance and education. Macdonald hotels had chosen this impressive venue on Londons Southbank was an impressive venue for the various regions to promote their settings to an invited audience of corporate customers and journalists.

My brief was to cover the event from early to late evening, their were different stations of staff promoting their regions, with virtual reality headsets and whiskey tasting as just two of the events happening. The room that was used also had a breathtaking view of the Thames and St Paul's Cathedral, this worked well for a backdrop to capture some portraits of senior members of the hotel group.
