BIC Bash - September 2014
We pretended that the Frankfurt Book Fair wasn't just around the corner at the BIC Bash!
In response to feedback we received at our May 2013 Open Day, and following the success of our first ever BIC Bash in February 2014 (see photos and sponsor feedback below) we were delighted to host this BIC Members Only networking event on Tuesday 16th September 2014 at The Drawing Room, BFI, on the Southbank.
As requested, there were no speakers, no slides and no presentations! Simply a great opportunity to relax after work, meet with fellow BIC members and have fun in a cosy, quirky venue. All on us! And my, what a time was had! Thank you to everyone who attended and made the event what it was. We hope to see you all the our next BIC Bash!

BIC Bash - February 2014
On 25th February 2014, we hosted our first ever networking-only event, exclusively for BIC members. Providing ample opportunities to meet, chat and share ideas/thoughts. The result was both a fun and productive evening which received some fantastic feedback! The Benugo Bar, BFI Southbank was the perfect setting for this event and we hope many more will follow!

What did our sponsors have to say about their experience of the event?
"I just wanted to drop you a line to say how happy we were with the sponsorship of the BIC Bash in February. I was very impressed with the way you asked us who we wanted to meet on the night and then made a huge effort to make sure that we were all introduced to those people. In addition you took it upon yourself to introduce us to other people you also felt would be relevant for us to meet as well. At all times I felt that the interests of us as your sponsor were paramount to you and the BIC team and I want to congratulate you on putting on such a great event and being so conscious of our needs.
I would whole heartedly recommend sponsoring a BIC event to any company as they will definitely be well looked after and get real value from it thanks to the professional and commercially astute attitude of Karina and her team."
