Have you ever thought about expressing your “Hispanic passion”? The Spanish Chamber of Commerce was proud to collaborate with partners Babylon Magazine for Monday night’s 3rd Hispassion event of the year at the swanky H10 Hotel in London’s Waterloo. This informal party, which celebrates the success of Babylon (the country’s only bilingual Spanish-English glossy publication), attracted an eagar crowd of guests from a plethora of professional sectors which stretch between the UK and Spain. Popular as ever – the great food, drink and music flavoured the electric atmosphere between the banterous Brits, Spaniards, and even the odd Italian!
Babylon was first launched in 2008 and it now has a presence all over the world, spreading Hispanic cultural points of interest in a hybrid bi-lingual format of Spanish, and whatever the local language may be. That said, London is at the heart of its international operations, since it was here that Babylon first carved its early inroads into the market which would go on to sow the seeds of its later success.
Mr. Juan Calleja, Babylon’s director, gave a stirring speech welcoming guests back to the third edition of this widely talked about event, and restated the created drive which continues to give the publication such life and such a broad appeal amongst its readers. They were printing more hardcopy editions than ever, he said, and this was only the beginning.
We thank all of our guests for coming, including outgoing President of the Chamber, Fernando Pérez, our attendees from Patron and Member companies, the participants in our Graduate European Programme, and wider guests. We hope you all had a great time, and we are very much looking forward to seeing you at the next Hispassion!
