"It’s not every day you head off to Sin City with the 10 of your best mates, all joined together by a love for creativity & a few miniature Jack & cokes” - Richard Staplehurst.
A grey cloudy morning in September, dark ominous clouds weep across the London skyline as all 10 members of the Paradise London creative team descend upon Heathrow Airport. The team was a mixed bag of excitement, nerves and adrenaline - checking last minute emails and adding diverts to the work phones. The team were equipped with the standard Paradise London merchandise kit - a black branded tote bag containing disposable cameras, lanyards and powerbanks - three necessary components to document what was going to be 4 days in the ‘city that never sleeps.'
THE TEAM ARRIVED AND CHECKED IN AT THE COSMPOLIATAN OF LAS VEGAS, SIPPING APEROL SPRITZ BY THE POOL BAR AND ASSESSING QUITE HOW MUCH THEY WERE WILLING TO LOSE ON THE TABLES.
INSPIRED BY LOCATION VIEWS FROM THE HOTEL, A GQ THEMED PHOTOSHOOT WAS ON THE CARDS FOR THE FIRST EVENING AS THE TEAM (DRESSED IN LONDON’S FINEST) RIGGED THE SET UPON THE COSMO ROOFTOP SECURING A FEATURE ON THE HOTEL INSTAGRAM PAGE.
EVENING TRIPS TO OMNIA FOR CALVIN HARRIS’S RESIDENCY AND AN INFAMOUS OCEANS ELEVEN STYLE WALK VIA THE LAS VEGAS SIGN ENSURED SOCIAL MEDIA AND BRAND IDENTITY WAS KEPT UP TO SCRATCH ON NIGHT TWO. THE TEAM MET AND DINED WITH THE MARKETING TEAM AT TAO NIGHTCLUB AND WERE JOINED BY OUT OF TOWN AGENCY FRIENDS ON THE THIRD NIGHT AS THEY DESCENDED UPON THE MGM AND BELLAGIO TRADING FLOORS.
A CLOSING BRUNCH AT THE PEPPERMILL AND ONE LAST ROLL OF THE DICE AT THE VENETIAN WRAPPED QUITE POSSIBLY THE TEAM'S FINEST (AND MOST WELL DESERVED) TRIP TO DATE.ON TO THE NEXT...
