To start off the evening Perrier Jouet provided champagne from their Blanc de Blanc range accompanied by Absolut Elyx Vodka cocktails.

An introduction to the evening was hosted by Asian Wealth’s Commercial Director Sunny Patel and Lillie Square’s James Lane who welcomed the guests and talked not only of the development but of the importance of reconnecting during these festive times.
