The BBC at Luzhniki

bbc-meeting-luzhnikiThe beginning of the summer was marked by a meeting of the British Business Club in an unusual location; at the Luzhniki stadium. Members and guests were transported to and from the nearest metro in a bright red double decker bus. Don Scott, the president of the BBC expressed that hosting the Rugby Sevens World Cup in Moscow in June is to be one of the biggest events that the club has ever put together, and invited everyone to attend.

Don also mentioned that St. George’s Day is an event celebrated both in England and Moscow! With this in mind, members of the British Business Club got down to some serious networking, aided by the generous amount of liquid refreshments supplied by the BBC’s often un-recognized sponsors.
