Dedicated event showcases over 16 corporate hospitality venues

Bateaux London, the capital’s leading Thames cruise operator, hosted a corporate day attracting over 130 event organisers, PA’s and corporate travel planners, onboard its unique all-glass  'Symphony'  vessel.

“The Prestige Experience group that Bateaux London is part of presents a fantastic community of people and businesses that can share new ideas and suggest exciting venues for all first-class events. We are delighted to offer our events industry partners the opportunity to network onboard one of the Bateaux London Thames restaurant cruise vessels and be inspired with the choice of venues on show for all corporate events”
