Speedy t2 VIP Live Conference & Awards Dinner
Tuesday, 06 November 2012
Telford International Centre, 2012
Having previously delivered the Speedy national conference in 2011, mclcreate were again asked by events agency QRBT to work alongside them in creating the Speedy t2 VIP Live Conference and Awards Dinner to be held at the Telford International Centre in November 2012.
Having reviewed the previous event in detail, we met with QRBT and Speedy to run through various concepts and creative ideas. The client wished to engage with their staff throughout the conference and this we achieved by creating video introduction stings throughout the days presentations which covered all sectors of the business and showed imagery of their staff.
The event would need to cater for an audience of up to 1000 delegates, and after investigation the venue we were able to propose a number of creative seating arrangements culminating in a working solution whereby the conference audience were seated on raked seating which allowed for good visibility and closeness to the presenters.
The set and staging was designed to cater for all aspects of the daytime conference along with the evenings awards dinner and live entertainment. The set comprised of a large 15 x 6 metre stage and a 12 x 3.75 metre flown screen which was controlled by our Spyder system and utilised 3 x 10K high resolution projectors. Understanding the visual impact of a large widescreen we discussed the use of Spyder and what the requirement was for the visual aspect of the event. We developed widescreen templates for the Spyder system and these were deployed throughout the conference and the dinner mixed in with live camera and video playback. Sound was handled through our D&B Q-Series line array and controlled via a couple of Yamaha M7 digital control desks.
The wings of the set were wrapped in white canvas to create a smooth professional finish and large 2 metre Speedy logos were added and illuminated to finish the set off. An integral part of the set design incorporated a central Versa Tile screen which was utilised throughout the event to change the mood of the proceedings along with creating excitement in combination with the set lighting.
The event was a huge success with Simon Briggs, General Manager for Speedy Sales commenting...
"The entire mclcreate crew worked tirelessly to ensure the event was an overwhelming success - please pass on my thanks to them."
Both mclcreate and QRBT look forward to working with Speedy on their 2013 annual conference and awards dinner.
