Live events are back at Victoria Warehouse!
As we all know, the in-person event industry was brought to a halt by the pandemic in March 2020 and many live events had been missing from the business schedule for more than 18 months as a result.
Since the announcement of restrictions being lifted and then finally being eased in July 2021, the recovery of the events ecosystem has been happening faster than expected, with event professionals seeing the number of events and event attendances reaching and potentially surpassing pre-pandemic levels in 2019.
Here at Victoria Warehouse, we’ve been extra busy getting back to doing what we love over the last 6 weeks… and here’s a round up of some of the highlights.
Launching the brand new Sportster S, Harley Davidson took over the Bays area of the Victoria Warehouse, showcasing a range of all things Harley Davidson from bygone eras right up until today, before inviting a host of influencers down to give the new Sportster S model a road test.
