Event production company Eclipse has joined the preferred suppliers list at prestigious hotel The Principal London. The 334-hotel in Russell Square re-opened in April following an £85m refurbishment of the Grade II listed building. Work included the restoration of the hotel’s ballroom with capacity for 450 reception guests and the refurbishment of eight meetings and events spaces which can accommodate up to 100 delegates. Joining the hotel’s preferred suppliers list means Eclipse will work closely with the luxury Bloomsbury venue to help it deliver creative and innovative events to its clients. To become a preferred supplier for the hotel, part of the Principal Hotel Company, Eclipse went through a thorough tendering process. Commenting on the news, Eclipse director of sales and marketing Jamie Castle, said: “Principal London is a stunning hotel offering incredible meetings and events spaces. Eclipse is very proud to have been selected to work with the hotel as a preferred supplier and we are looking forward to working with its meetings and events team to deliver exceptional events.” Natalie Bibbey, director of meeting and events at Principal London were impressed by Eclipse’s quality approach and eye for detail. They said: “Eclipse has an impressive record of producing awe-inspiring events and we are thrilled to add them to our portfolio of suppliers.” Eclipse has 30 years’ experience in providing production services at a number of prestigious venues, including One Whitehall Place, The Guildhall, The Natural History Museum, The Worshipful Company of Stationers and Newspapers, Honourable Artillery Company, Plaisterers Hall, Gibson Hall, Royal Hospital Chelsea, Wembley Stadium and Searcys at The Gherkin.
