Case Study - PepsiCo Social Gathering

The brief

To get their global team together for a social event allowing them to get to know each other after a week of meetings.

What we did

PepsiCo emailed our team as they were on the lookout for a venue to host a gathering of their staff from all around the world. They had a specific set of criteria, which included having Pepsi as the only soft drink on board the vessel for all of their guests. They also wanted nibbles and drinks available, which meant we put forward our grazing station menu, which worked really well for them.

We also added our outdoor garden games to their bespoke package, which created a great ice breaker for the members of their team that had yet to get to know one another.

After the booking was complete we handed it over to our event planning team. Pepsi then had to change their slot from the daytime to the evening due to a scheduling conflict, meaning we had to swap the vessel from the original proposed one. However, Pepsi was grateful we were able to do this and it still suited their needs well.

The result

We received some truly excellent feedback from Pepsi about the event. They were very happy with how it went on the day and we’re delighted with the food, adding that it was nicely inclusive for vegetarians and vegans. Their team loved the games and they had a lot of fun on the night.

Client testimonial

"Sending our sincerest thanks and congratulations to Eliza and her wonderful team. Our global team had the most amazing landmarks cruise recently and made incredible memories together.

Sapphire was kind enough to give me a great initial run through of packages to suit our team, Eliza then took ownership of the event and delivered with a personable touch at a very professional standard. Every question or query I'd had from the start to the very day of the event was dealt with promptly. Eliza and Ellie were always on hand with any changes (even during an unpredicted circumstance within London) to provide advice and insight to ensure the most magical time on the water. Our team had travelled to the UK from all over the world and could never have seen London in such a wonderful way. We were truly blown away by the tour itself, and the beautiful details onboard. Welcome drinks reception, personalized music playlist and tabletop/ garden games to name a few. The varied vegetarian food options were also fantastic! We were absolutely blown away by the professional photographer helping capture moments meaning we could enjoy the views and team connect. The whole team felt this was a beautiful touch and we couldn't be more pleased with the pictures.

Thank you for allowing us to see London in the most amazing way, to your staff for their incredible service onboard during the event, to the captain for his landmark and area information via speaker, to the photographer again for his efforts capturing the team essence and advising of upcoming landmarks for picture ops! Wonderful! And of course, to you all; the events team- for your professional partnership and wonderful organization. I have ensured to recommend this amazing activity throughout our organization. You should all be so proud of the wonderful work you do; we can't wait to work with you again. Thankyou for everything."
