Holyrood PR also put together lavish goodie bags as well as organising a series of Affinity Partners to benefit guests who took out the Business Account card.
Shakila Ahmed, head of consumer PR at Travelodge, said: “I want to say a huge thank you to Holyrood PR. The event was a great success and your hard work is greatly appreciated.
I have received fantastic feedback from guests following the event.”
Holyrood PR Director Raymond Notarangelo said: “It was no easy challenge: to get at least 50 PAs to attend an evening event on a dark February night.
“We set about the challenge by putting together a fun and interesting programme of activities on a Sex and the City theme that really grabbed the attention of PAs.
“We all know that PAs are often the unappreciated powers behind the throne, so we felt they’d appreciate a chance to have some pampering.
“We’re delighted that we nearly doubled the target for attendees – and to get the kind of positive reaction from both guests and Travelodge.”
As well as expertise in public relations and media relations, Holyrood PR provides a wide range of services.
