The ICIS team in Budapest for EPCA were astonished to walk into the middle of the "Pearl of the Danube" beauty pageant in the lobby of their conference hotel on Sunday night.
Will Beacham, deputy editor of ICB, took some amazing photos at the President Hotel of the pageant, which had originally been mistaken for an auction by one of the Blog's sales colleagues.
Some of the younger members of the ICIS editorial team joined the Pearl after-party on a boat on the Danube. At least two male reporters were seen pole dancing in the early hours, Will tells me.
