Hospitality Rocks, the post-Christmas party for the hospitality and events industry, raised more than £14,500 for charity at this year’s edition.

Created by Smart Group for those working within the hospitality and events industry over the busy festive period, the après ski-themed party welcomed more than 1,400 industry professionals to Battersea Evolution. This year’s Hospitality Rocks raised £14,656 for its two chosen charities, Hospitality Action and The Springboard Charity.

Greg Lawson, CEO of Smart Group, said: “I want to thank all of the industry’s support for the second year in a row, it was a chance for us to finally all get together and celebrate in style. We offered an extraordinary product to our friends in the industry at mate’s rates and look forward to them all again and many more next year.”

Guests arrived to a canapé reception, before enjoying a three-course meal with charity games and live auctions. After dinner, guests took to the dodgems and casino and danced to music from the live DJ until doors closed at 2am.

Hospitality Rocks is sponsored by Syft, a temporary staffing solution for the hospitality industry in London.
