About the event:
Two-day sales kick-off conference, consisting of a conference, gala dinner, networking and team building activities at De Vere, Cotswolds Water Park Hotel.
To create the conference and gala dinner. Tangibles were to design and build the set & stage, to ensure the chosen theme, ran throughout the event. A key aspect of the brief was to ensure all employees could see on-screen content throughout the event.
The main focus of the conference was the stage, which consisted of eight screens, these needed to be clearly visible so the attendees could see the detailed information. The sound and lighting were set to standard as there weren’t to be any distractions to the content of the conference.
At the back of the stage there were printed CNC cut elements, some of which were halo lit with LED tape, to gave a 3D impression.
As one of the main aims of the event was networking to counterbalance the corporate feel, the furniture selected, from Showcase’s own collection, was casual yet elegant.
To help encourage networking, a pub was replicated – The Verinters. The pub’s theme was retro British, with two bars to serve drinks from and large barrels with plank tops to create tables for food service. Some of the tall poser tables had ‘bar skittles’ games on them (4 total). There was also a specific area for darts, with two mounted dart boards and caulk boards for scoring.
To further the pub theme, Showcase built a 24ft long skittle alley.
The entrance to the area featured a freestanding branded pub sign.
For the gala dinner Showcase created a space theme for the evening. The layout of the room was changed, the lights were dimmed and LED orbs were placed on each table and various colour LED tubes were place on the bar, entrance and on stage.
The furniture for the entire event, apart from the barrels in the pub, came from Showcase’s new collection.
Showcase created the entire two day event with a team of 16, this involved a two day build and six hour breakdown and two 45ft Megacube trailers.
“I just wanted to say thank you for an incredible event – superb support (always delivered with a smile). The feedback has been outstanding, and the fact European teams want to re-use the stage is a huge compliment!”
