On Friday the 14th of January the MLP of France-Belux held their 2011 New Year Party for the entire E&V family of Belgium, France and Luxembourg. The venue for the event was Le Teatro in Brussels, a great venue but not the best reachable location due to the heavy traffic. From the invited 140 members, 121 were present. Meaning that the turnout in itself was a big success.
When arriving at the Le Teatro, the first things that popped out where the E&V umbrella’s used by all our colleagues. And the second thing that caught you eyes were the E&V cars, the smart’s and the fiat 500’s, all nicely positioned at the entrance, very well visible for the E&V family and bystanders.
When entering the venue everyone was welcomed by colleagues and staff members of the MLP, exchanging greetings and best wishes for the new year. Coats were hanged, a name tag was given and the twist of the evening was ………. the table seating.
The table seating was chosen by the drawing a number between 1 and 11 out of a giant bowl. Definitely a fun way to meet new people from the network and exchange experiences.
Here is a quick summary of the rest of the evening:
- Hand shadow artist (spend a couple of years in Las Vegas performing)
- Main course
- Magician (been praised as one of the best magician in Belgium and surroundings)
- Music-quiz: This was where the party started, the place was to small at times. People stood on chairs or the bar dancing to the music, just having a great time.
