RIBA Venues, part of the Harbour & Jones Events Collection, last week announced that it will host a series of events for Hearst Magazines UK as part of its ‘Hearst Empowering Women’ initiative, with the first event taking place on 5th March 2015.
The events, organised by the publisher whose portfolio includes Cosmopolitan, Elle, Harper’s Bazaar and Good Housekeeping aim to inspire women with a series of talks and stories from powerful women and will attract around 300 guests to RIBA Venues’ Jarvis Suite. The first event on the 5th March will feature international lawyer, campaigner and wife of the UK’s Deputy Prime Minister, Miriam González Durántez.
Eight Hearst events will take place at RIBA Venues throughout this year. Victoria Archbold, Head of Events at Hearst, says: “RIBA Venues offers such character which is a real challenge to find. The unique architecture and culture of the building bring a historical and interesting element to our events. The team have been extremely accommodating to our needs.”
RIBA Venues’ Head of Venues, Stephanie Ellrott, adds: “The Hearst Empowering Women event series is a great chance for women to come along and hear from some truly inspiring speakers. I’m extremely proud to be hosting these events at RIBA Venues and look forward to welcoming delegates to what looks set to be some great evening talks.”
Tickets for the first event are available here.
