Eclipse joins Natural History Museum’s preferred suppliers list
Event production company Eclipse is celebrating a roaring success after making the Natural History Museum‘s preferred suppliers list.
Joining the venue’s preferred suppliers list means Eclipse will work closely with the iconic London venue over the next three years to help it deliver creative and innovative events to its clients.
As well as being a popular attraction, the Natural History Museum holds about 150 private and corporate events and 30 internal events every year in its three main event spaces – Earth Hall, Hintze Hall and Darwin Centre.
Functions held at the Natural History Museum vary from cocktail parties for anywhere between 50 to 2,000 people and dinner for up to 700 people, with the average number of people attending for dinner usually between 400 and 450.
To become a preferred supplier, Eclipse was put through a rigorous, three-stage accreditation process by the Natural History Museum’s events team. The venue will only accredit suppliers with an established reputation for good service, an eye for detail and the ability to help it meet its goal of delivering dynamic and creative events in a safe and ethical way.
Commenting on the news, Eclipse Director of Sales & Marketing Jamie Castle, said: “We are very proud to have been selected to work with the Natural History Museum as one of its new business partners. It is both a prestigious and unique venue space and we’re excited to be working with the venue team to deliver exceptional events.”
Nigel Mullins, Senior Operations Manager at the Natural History Museum, said: “During the process of looking for new partners we recognise the need to find suppliers who will help enhance the client’s experience at the Natural History Museum. We were also looking for production companies who could offer our clients a one-stop-shop for all production services to simplify the process. Eclipse stood out as a company who could offer this at a high quality. Eclipse has the experience and expertise that our clients are looking for and the personnel to work with them.’’
Eclipse has almost 30 years’ experience in providing production services at a number of prestigious venues, including One Whitehall Place, The Guildhall, The Worshipful Company of Stationers and Newspapers, Honourable Artillery Company, Plaisterers Hall, Gibson Hall, Royal Hospital Chelsea, Wembley Stadium and Searcys at The Gherkin.
The company also manages a number of high profile events, such as the Cartier Racing Awards at The Dorchester, ARMA Awards at Tobacco Dock and the Queen Charlotte Ball at the Horseguard’s Hotel.
