How you can get involved in the trefor.net Xmas bash 2014
The trefor.net xmas bash is an established high point of the networking calendar for those working in the UK internet industries. Attendees are a mix of networking (usually LONAP and LINX members), VoIP, data centre and hosting company engineers and executives with a further eclectic scattering of blog readers that makes for a really interesting mix of party goers.
The format is similar each year with great catering, top class jazz entertainment and an unlimited bar until the kitty runs out, normally sometime between 10 and 11pm. Last year we consumed over 80 bottles of champagne.
Up to 250 people sign up for the bash which is free to attend to readers of trefor.net with the cost of the evening covered by industry sponsorship. The event is a tremendous networking opportunity.
The date this year is 11th December and we are having a “Beach Party” theme with a mandatory Hawaiian shirt dress code. The music will be oriented towards beach/latin and theme will provide sponsorship opportunities for straw hats and “floral” garlands which will be handed to each attendee as they come in the door. The venue is the Phoenix Artist Club on Charing Cross Road which is a super cool backdrop for the party.
