We were invited to a special media preview night, to showcase the new service which involved an array of different Emoji themed events to get us in the Emoji mood! We were welcomed with plenty of Prosecco in the hotel bar area, which was festooned with emoji balloons (which were so cute I wanted to take them home!) We enjoyed the work of local artists given the opportunity to showcase their work in a three day exhibition called Emoji Exhibit. Artists include Graphic Designer, James Traynor who has designed a retro animated Emoji Pacman. Oh my goodness, I have always loved Pacman so I thought that an Emoji version was the best thing ever!
Also on display was a stylish emoji dress by fashion designer Heather Orr and emoji Shakespeare by graphic designer Jamie Rector. I really admire the Aloft philosophy of supporting new and emerging creative artistic talent, giving artists a platform to showcase their work is such a great initiative.
After enjoying some drinks and the chance to chat with other guests for a while, we were whisked upstairs to enjoy a yoga display, which previewed the upcoming classes which will take place as part of the Emoji themed events. Aloft Liverpool guests will be invited to take part in a free Emoji Yoga class with Liverpool Yoga Studios, with poses and routines designed to help weary travellers recover from fatigue or business related stress. This is a great idea as travelling can just be so tiring, and yoga is a good way to relax and switch off your mind.
Back downstairs we were led to a beautifully decorated long table in the NYL Restaurant, where we were treated to platters of Emoji afternoon tea. Emoji cupcakes decorated our place settings, along with amazing goodie bags featuring treats from Urban Decay and Peaches and Cream.
We sipped delicious rum punch and martinis as we chatted and tucked in to the delicious platters including buffalo wings, pizza and mini cheeseburger. We were also treated to a choice of teas to accompany the cocktails and food, so I opted for a traditional English tea which went perfectly with the selection of cakes including chocolate chip cookie, Victoria sponge, doughnut and an Emoji cake.
After a lovely catch up chat with the Head Chef of NYL Restaurant, we headed through to the bar again for some more of the amazing martinis and live music from the band who performed a brilliant live set to mark the occasion!
The whole evening was so much fun and we had a blast enjoying the various Emoji themed exhibits and activities and of course the delicious cocktails and food. Thank you so much to Aloft Hotel Liverpool and 20ten Entertainment for inviting me along to such a super evening. I am more in love with Emojis now than ever before!
What do you all think do you like the idea of an Emoji room service menu and and Emoji themed afternoon tea? Would you like to stay at Aloft Liverpool and experience this groundbreaking concept?

If you have to organize corporate events, know that verbal communication might cause misunderstandings and problems later. So, it is advised by corporate event planners to get things like invitations sent and confirmations received in writing.ReplyDelete
