12 Blogs of Xmas: Day 11 ~ Sam and Faz
Next up on the #12blogsofXmas is Sam and Faz from Live Buzz! They are new to the Business Design Centre so let’s find out how they will be celebrating their first Christmas here and some of their traditions…
How long have you been working at the venue? What’s your favourite thing about working here?
Sam: ‘3 months. It’s great to see all the shows that happen in the venue, I’m always so impressed with how quickly it all comes together.’
Faz: ‘I’ve also been here for 3 months. There’s a fantastic atmosphere here and I love that there’s always something ‘going on’ outside our office - I am really excited to start getting involved in the events sector.’
Who is the most festive person in your office? How does your team celebrate?
Faz: ‘Sam! He absolutely loves Christmas songs and started playing them in the office from the 1st December (I’m sure he would have done it earlier if we let him). Right now, he has Mariah Carey on repeat…’
Sam: ‘I’d have to agree. I absolutely love the festive season and get excited very early. This year our team are celebrating by travelling to our head office in Coventry for a 1920s themed party. I am really looking forward to meeting our other LiveBuzz colleagues from around the country.’
What is your favourite local spot to start feeling festive?
Faz: ‘I haven’t been living in London long however I visited Camden Market last weekend and loved it! Their market is fantastic and they have a great array of Christmas jumpers. I hope to also visit Southbank’s Winter Market at some point before the New Year.’
Sam: ‘I enjoy visiting Covent Garden to see their Christmas lights and festive additions to their market. They also have some little stalls around Christmas time where I like to enjoy a mulled wine in between my shopping!’
What are your favourite Christmas songs, foods and film?
Sam: ‘The Pogues – Fairy-tale of New York, pigs-in-blankets and Home Alone.’
Faz: ‘Shakin’ Stevens – Merry Christmas Everyone, turkey and Elf.’
What does the New Year have in store for LiveBuzz?
Sam: ‘LiveBuzz have recently had the news that we will be listed as AEO’s preferred supplier for all of their events in 2017. This is fantastic news for the company and we are all really looking forward to getting more involved in the exhibition industry.’
Faz: ‘I have to agree. Advancing my experience and knowledge in the events industry is also something I hope to achieve in the New Year. I guess you could say this is my resolution.’
