Event type: Festival
About the event:
Together Fest celebrates the power of collaboration by bringing together retail colleagues to share tools and advice to empower us to live happier and healthier lives. With workshops to energise your body and spaces to relax your body, attendees learned coping tips from mental health experts, were inspired by high profile speakers and equipped with practical advice on improving their wellbeing. The festival included everything from healthier sleep habits, coping with anxiety and trauma, improving your nutrition, finding a better work-life balance, mindfulness, art, crafts and more.
After its inaugural launch in 2022 Showcase was tasked with an increased event space at the venue to incorporate more engaging activations and experiences for Retail Trust.
Keeping sustainability in mind, Showcase designed and reused some stored elements from 2022 for 2023’s design. There were three stages of content and 10 activations in various forms from a message envelope wall, unwind tents, craft areas and a fully digital immersive meditation room.
The event was built over two days with designs and CAD planning by the Showcase team and delivered by 164 crew. They manufactured and built all elements of the event and supplied AV, plants, furniture and directional signage to the various spaces. All pre-production was managed directly with the client and the event delivery was live for 1 day. Due to venue restrictions the event was dismantled and removed in 10 hours across the evening and following morning. All logistics provided by Showcase were fulfilled by using palm-free HVO fuelled trucks.
