- A talk about how food products can achieve a Great Taste accolade, complete with a hamper of products, hosted by Nigel Barden, Patrick McGuigan and Great British Bake Off’s Martha Collison.
Inge Bauwens, business development manager for Meetings, incentives, conferences and exhibitions at Eurostar, commented: “We wanted to offer those travelling in a group a new way to make the most out of their time on board. Taking advantage of the space available on board and freedom to move around, our new range of exclusive experiences allow Meetings, incentives, conferences and exhibitions travellers to provide a unique journey for their guests and a Eurostar trip to remember.”
Prices are available on request and experiences are only available for those booking an entire coach on Eurostar.
