Hybrid Awards Ceremony

arrow-rightback to case studies

This financial company required a hybrid awards ceremony with guests in-person, that would also be streamed to virtual attendees internationally. They wanted something impressive and chose to host it at Aqua The Shard in London.

The client is based abroad and wouldn’t be in the country leading up to the event. After the initial brief we had minimal contact with the client – the logistics, plan and details were in our hands.

We were happy to take on all in-person responsibilities so the planning could go ahead. In their absence we chose the menus, arranged the food tasting with the venue and took care of every detail, down to the flowers and branded bar coasters.

The Shard – although a fantastic venue – did come with its challenges. There is very minimal storage space and limited access to the building. Naturally with such a prestigious venue there were rules to follow. We had tight build times and ‘tools-down’ intervals of four hours. Even the shape of The Shard can be challenging to work with as it isn’t square or symmetrical.

Bespoke Solutions, Exact Specifications

We overcame these challenges by designing our specification to use low-floorspace-products and leave us with minimal casing for storage. We sourced a specially adapted truck that would fit with the height restrictions of the loading bay. Finally, hours and hours were spent in our design and visualisation software to make sure everything would be built to the exact specifications and requirements of the building once we arrived to set up on the day.

Stunning Results, Happy Clients

Our efforts resulted in a stunning awards ceremony that was enjoyed by the in-person attendees and those watching the live stream. It also led to one of the best compliments you could ask for as an event production company from the venue, and the client instantly rebooking us for their next event.
