Guests at the sixth annual Girbau Industrial UK dinner were the first in the country to experience the new GirbauMax virtual reality laundry technology. The informal event hosted at Warwick Castle attracted over 100 prestigious guests from across the UK laundry industry, including representatives from Lavatec, Bates of London, Camplings Linen, the TSA and LTC.
Guests met at the castle’s conservatory for early evening drinks and the UK’s first GirbauMax demonstrations. GirbauMax allows customers to walk around a virtual replica of their industrial laundry, on-premise laundry or laundrette, enabling them to get a true-to-life appreciation of operational space and laundry equipment positioning.
The evening continued with a theatrical demonstration of the castle’s replica trebuchet, believed to be the world’s largest siege engine, weighing 22 tonnes and standing 18 metres high. A 15kg shot was fired from the giant machine and seen to disappear out of sight at 150 mph.
Girbau guests were treated to a spectacular rainbow as they retired into the castle’s Great Hall for dinner and entertainment which included duelling knights and a traditional Ceilidh. The music and dancing continued late into the night and throughout the event a Girbau flag flew from the castle’s tower. As guests left in the small hours the Girbau logo was projected onto the castle’s walls.
Girbau’s guests were quick to send in their thanks and congratulations on a great event. Stuart Boyd, Director of LTC Worldwide said: “Thank you for inviting us to your event last night which was as ever, a wonderful evening”.
David Walton of Kudos Linen Hire added: “A thoroughly enjoyable and informative evening at Warwick Castle. An excellent night.”
Gillian Farrar, Head of Membership and Communications at the TSA said: “I had such a good time. A huge thank you for the loveliest event.”
Marketing Manager, Jo Emmerson said that the very positive feedback received from guests has strengthened the company’s plans to continue the event in the future: “We benefit as a company from taking the time to network with our clients and industry colleagues in this relaxed environment and it has now become a firmly established event in the UK laundry industry’s calendar.”
