The Cool Conference – We just love it when a brief like this comes in!
A few weeks ago we were in the middle of a normal day (if you can call any day in the events industry normal that is) and we got a phone call from a client, who was excited to talk to us about something they had just had sign off for. They had been given the go ahead to plan a ‘Google’-esque conference and had come straight to us for some ideas.
The brief was ‘cool’ – it had to inspire the creatives and the business leaders in the business to come up with the latest ideas and to use innovation to their advantage!
What an event it was! From retro gaming igloo chill out pods and seminars with silent disco headphones to funky exterior caterers (Pieminister) and an experimental ‘lab’ area for some unknowing delegates – this event had it all!
As you can see from the pictures below there was an awful lot that went into this event, and before that there was even more planning. From the larger more evident things like the custom stage set with LED panelling built onto a balcony above the rest of the venue and the live recording of the event throughout the day to the smaller things like being able to have a nip off and have a massage or snacking on Graze boxes!
The delegates then had the opportunity to wonder around three floors of the venue to visit the different trade shows that had been put together to showcase the latest advancements internally and externally – which even included a demonstration of the Oculus Rift and flying a drone! Then to finish off the day there was a drum workshop to keep everyone energised and engaged, this event was about the little things as well as the more obvious key parts!
