This year’s WatchPro Hot 100 venue has been confirmed as One Mayfair in the heart of London’s West End shopping district.
Just a stone’s throw from the luxury watch boutiques of Bond Street, and the high fashion stores of Oxford Street, One Mayfair is a deconsecrated gothic church built in 1825.
The remarkable building is a hidden gem of London. The stunning space is one of the largest event spaces in Mayfair, and has undergone extensive renovation following its abandonment as a place of worship.
In recent years, it has played host to spectacular fashion shows as part of London Fashion Week, and also several world premieres for blockbuster movies.
"We are incredibly excited to be taking the WatchPro Hot 100 party to One Mayfair. After the inaugural event last year, the Hot 100 is already established as the UK watch industry’s most hotly anticipated events. The announcement of the venue is always a big moment, and I don’t think we could have done any better than One Mayfair. It is a truly awesome party venue," said James Buttery, editor of WatchPro.
The WatchPro Hot 100 celebrates the 100 individuals and teams who the editors of the magazine feel have made the greatest impact in the UK watch industry this year.
The Hot 100 is revealed at the party, which takes place on the first night of the London Watch Show on July 6, in a stunning series of portraits.
"We all know the watch industry loves to party, and we feel we are not only giving them an incredible night out, but the reveal of the Hot 100 is a moment of genuine importance and excitement," said Daniel Malins, commercial manager for WatchPro and event director for the London Watch Show.
Tickets to the WatchPro Hot 100, are strictly by invitation only by the sponsors of the event, and VIP guests of WatchPro.
