Event Service Providers Sad to See Dippy Moving

Jan 04, 17 Event Service Providers Sad to See Dippy Moving

Posted by in Event News, Featured News

Dippy the Diplodocus is set to move from the Natural History Museum after serving in the Hintze Hall since 1905. The plaster dinosaur skeleton is currently not classed as relevant enough to the issues in today’s natural world. The much-loved attraction is due to be removed on January 5th 2017 and replaced with the skeleton of our world’s current largest animal – a blue whale. The whale, which is currently hanging in the museum’s Mammal Hall, will be used as a dramatic reminder of both environmental problems but also hope for the future. Dippy will be touring from early 2018 until late 2020 visiting all 4 countries within the United Kingdom. From his removal until he sets off in 2018, conservators will be ensuring the plaster-of-Paris skeleton is ready for its mammoth journey. Hospitality industry solution providers Mobile Bar Hire Ltd are one of the many organisations who have worked alongside the Diplodocus. Having worked at the Natural History museum on several occasions for weddings and corporate functions, Mobile Bar Hire have provided their service directly under the dinosaur’s tail. Having overseen many events at the Natural History Museum, Mobile Bar Hire Director Rags Sandhu said, ‘it’s a great shame that Dippy is moving from the museum. His grand scale and imposing nature was a real plus for events we attended and made the venue truly unique. Whilst it will change the look and feel of the space, the real blue whale skeleton will add a completely new aesthetic to the hall which can only be a positive. We hope everyone who see’s Dippy on his travels loves him as much as we did!’ If you’ve seen Dippy in the past or have attended an event at the Natural History Museum, let us know your thoughts about his nationwide travels...

Alcohol to be banned in Indonesia

Aug 19, 16 Alcohol to be banned in Indonesia

Posted by in Area News, Featured News

The Government of Indonesia is to discuss whether a bill of Alcohol to be banned in Indonesia should be passed. Tourism experts have predicted that this will have a dangerous and significant impact on the tourism in Indonesia, especially the tourist popular Indonesian Island of Bali. Producers of alcohol and business who rely on the sales of alcohol have also backed up the threat of loss of tourism if the bill of alcohol to be banned in Indonesia is passed. The bill of law to ban distribution, production and consumption of alcohol in Indonesia was introduced by the United Development Party and the Prosperous Justice Party which are the two highest ranking Islamic dominated parties. The Indonesian House of Representatives have now taken the bill under consideration and will undertake many steps to decide its final conclusion if alcohol is to be banned in Indonesia. If the bill of alcohol to be banned in Indonesia is to pass, it will only apply to drinks with over 1% of alcohol in them. Furthermore, this will be the first law of its kind in Muslim-majority Indonesia. Only exceptions to ban of alcohol is for travellers, religious rituals and customary activities. But even the chance of banning the substance has the tourism and hospitality industries rallying together in repute and outrage against the consideration of the law. It is a strong understanding that industries who benefit from the production and distribution along with the consumption of alcohol will receive a crippling and even maybe a fatal blow. Breweries, venues and resorts will be caught by the tidal wave of effects due to the law and hundreds of thousands of jobs are also at risk. The consideration of the bill for Alcohol to be banned in Indonesia comes after a previous bill was passed for alcohol not being sold in mini marts, many of the population fear that this law may lead to some more changes which will affect their way of life and livelihood. What do you...

Brighton Pub Installs Mobile Phone Signal Blocker

Aug 02, 16 Brighton Pub Installs Mobile Phone Signal Blocker

Posted by in Area News, Featured News

These days many people seem to be on their phones 24/7, even when they are out and about everybody seems to have this fatal attraction to staring at their small screens whenever they can. Verbal conversation is at the brink of decline and it seems that nobody is caring about it. But one bar called “The Gin Tub” in Brighton is bringing socialising back to the old days. They have declared that mobile phones are killing pubs due to customers always being on them whilst inside the venue and not participating in the atmosphere of the place, and so they have come up with a solution – a mobile phone signal blocker. The Gin Tub has included an additional feature to the roof of their property, a mobile phone signal blocker that disables customers receiving 3G and 4G signals. But they have placed old style phones with rotary dials at each table that can connect to other tables or to the bar for ordering a round of drinks. The Gin Tub is speculated to be the only one bar that has a mobile phone signal blocker attached to the venue ceiling in England, and within its first few weeks of business, it has received a great amount of reviews on how well it gets customers to socialise without the use of mobile phones. For those who have companions who are stuck to their mobile phones, then this may be a great place to bring them and truly interact in a social way without media. The Gin Tub is the only bar which has a mobile phone signal blocker, but maybe not for long. Other bars and pubs are now starting to look into having signal blockers on their roofs to get people socialising in the old fashion way. So maybe verbal conversation is not as near to a decline as we thought. What do you think of mobile phone signal blockers in pubs and bars? Tell us what you think...
