Expanding our horizons

Posted by  Anna Green on March 26, 2019

We wanted to drop you an update as 2019 has certainly started with high profile happenings and a series of flagship events.

We were proud to work alongside two new clients. Kimberly-Clark invited 400 sales colleagues to London for three days. We worked with TW Creative and transformed the conference space at Twickenham Stadium with a main plenary room and interactive product stands in the breakout space. The second, a financial company based in London, took over the Langham Hotel for two days. We created a main space (with 19m wide x 4m high LED wall!) and 18 concurrent breakout rooms, as well as rebranding much of the hotel and providing wayfinding to four floors. We additionally managed and produced content for an interactive event app, which linked into our badging solution.
