Event suppliers doubled while corporate buyer numbers grew 18 per cent at this year's London Christmas Party Show.

The fourth edition of the show, a boutique exhibition showcasing Christmas event venues and suppliers, welcomed more than 700 buyers.

The show attracted buyers from the likes of Barclays, Cancer Research, The Guardian and Facebook, alongside more than 80 exhibitors, including 27 event suppliers and 53 venues.

It was also the first show that organisers Story Events introduced the CSR project #StoryGivesBack, offering a complimentary stand for four new or smeall event suppliers.

Marketing and content manager for the event, Clare McAndrew, said: "As a boutique exhibition, supplying interesting and new content for our visitors is key. We have always had a great number of venues exhibiting but to encourage an increase in event suppliers we introduced a number of new initiatives such as smaller stand sizes and #StoryGivesBack, resulting in our largest amount of event suppliers to date."

The London Christmas Party Show took place on 10-11 May at Spitalfields Venue near Liverpool Street.
