Commenting on the event, Andrew Hynard – UK Deputy Chairman at Jones Lang LaSalle said: “It was such an honour to welcome so many past and present friends and colleagues of Jones Lang LaSalle to this important event. The buzz in the room was fantastic and it enabled many of the great and the good of the property industry to get together whilst enjoying champagne and canapés in a very impressive setting. The biggest challenge of the evening was encouraging people to leave at closing time as the party was still in full swing! It took an hour to persuade them to move on - it was like the old Air Canada advert!"
