porter Tun, The Brewery, London
The Conference Awards was attended by over 550 conference professionals from over 160 companies coming from around the world. It is the biggest networking event of the year with CEO’s and MD’s from all the leading companies participating. Created and designed to recognise and reward excellence within the conference and events industry, the awards are a testimony to the energy and dynamism of the conference industry.
The awards were held in one of the largest and oldest unobstructed event spaces in London, the Porter Tun, located at the Brewery. The Brewery occupies the site of the former Whitbread brewery in East London.
Following a tendering process, mclcreate were selected on merit and we were asked to be a headline sponsor for the lunchtime awards ceremony. Working closely with R3 and the Brewery, mclcreate created a full bespoke stage set featuring the award stars, with inset logos and infinity plasma’s scrolling the headline sponsor names.
mclcreate were responsible for all the software content, including slide creation, music sting selection and opening video sting. Relay screens to the side of the room, showed sponsor rolls that we had created and displays of a Twitter feed in- between sponsor adverts.
Working with a web streaming company, live camera feeds of the awards ceremony were broadcast on the net, so those who were unable to attend had the opportunity to view the ceremony live.
The awards ceremony was a unanimous success, and we look forward to working with R3 and the Brewery in the future. Highlights can be seen on the official awards website
