exciting innovative challenging memorable The client was very clear about the agenda for the event. We needed to find a central location that could accommodate 450 delegates and then have the space to deliver an engaging format to focus the attention of the high energy sales guys. They needed to live and breathe the 5 year sales strategy that the leadership team had agreed upon. They wanted to become a premium brand and had to energise their sales team to perform accordingly. and we had one day to get this message across. They work hard and they play hard and we know it..
When coming up with the identity for the event we had to keep a couple ofthings in mind - The company’s core business was shifting more and moretowards the electronic platform and the sales targets for 2010-2011 werechallenging - so we needed to reflect this in our ideas – we came up with an tolifeedgy identity that suited the business message and would engage with theage of the audience coming
The stage set was crucial – it needed to give the right impression –imposing and impressive – the perfect backdrop to the messages ofgrowth and clear communication across all strands of the business.The lighting was equally important – by clever use of LED technology wewere able to create atmosphere and enhance the message wherenecessary.Clear sound ensured everyone heard with ease.This stage backdrop turned, at the touch of a button, to the perfectenvironment to party in the evening – with the quick and easy addition of tolifea dance floor, the evening was underway. coming
nothingoverlooked Our challenge was to undertake every strand that would bring this event to life – from invitation to evaluation. Once the theme was agreed, it was updated to the evening and an urban club created. The entertainment was original – a stomp style group, the atmosphere was “graffiti” grunge to suit the “play hard” attitude of these hard working sales professionals. The room turned around within 2 hours with lighting effects and props to develop the theme. Delegates were amazed that the transformation was possible. Our team were imaginative, efficient and clever to design maximum effect with the minimum of fuss.
message content delivery The presenters were notoriously difficult to engage with before the event, flying around the world with time at a premium. So we designed a format that allowed Newsroom style large screen graphics with the ability to overlay Powerpoint information. By doing this we were able to keep the presenters in their comfort zone while still presenting a format that was fresh, new and exciting – unlike anything they had seen before. We understood them, we lived their message and we delivered a style that everyone was comfortable with. Once we knew how we were going to deliver the event, we could find a venue that worked.
