Historic Royal Palaces, the independent charity that looks after the Tower of London, Hampton Court Palace, Banqueting House, Kensington Palace, Kew Palace and Hillsborough Castle in Northern Ireland, is to host luxury wedding summit Engage! for the first time this autumn alongside Rosewood London and Sarah Haywood Weddings.

Taking place on 28-31 October, the summit will bring together the international luxury events industry for a series of exclusive events at Tower of London, Banqueting House and Kensington Palace.

Attendees from around the world will gain insights from the world’s top wedding, events and business innovators and have the opportunity to network with industry peers within the inspiring settings of the palaces, through a variety of events including a very special dinner under the magnificent Rubens masterpiece ceiling at Banqueting House.

Milan Thakrar, business development manager at Historic Royal Palaces, said: “We are thrilled to be welcoming the Engage!19 Summit to London and to be opening the doors of our iconic palaces to industry leaders from all over the world. Engage! Summits is such a fantastic opportunity to network and learn from the best, so to be able to do so while immersed in the history and opulence of our palaces will be truly special.

“It is also an opportunity to raise awareness that income raised from activities at the palaces, including venue hire, is reinvested in conservation and education activities, to ensure they remain well maintained and open for all to enjoy.”

Rebecca Grinnals and Kathryn Arce of Engage! Summits added: “We are beyond delighted to be partnering with Historic Royal Palaces to showcase some of the most legendary palaces in the world to our global audience of top luxury wedding and special event planners, designers, media and other influencers. The anticipation and buzz among the entire industry is beyond our wildest expectations and we look forward to planning an extraordinary three days and nights with a dream team of top British talent.”
