Skype Leadership Team conference, London

London played host to this year’s annual Skype Leadership Team meeting, with over 140 delegates flying in from various global offices to network and brainstorm over a 3 day event.

Instead of the age-old dull registration desk, we engaged with the delegates using YrSurface: an interactive table pre-programmed with our bespoke name cards. After each person had scribbled down some key info on these high-tech tables, we produced delegate postcards to form a networking wall in the break room. And took their ‘guilty pleasure’ songs to make a playlist for the welcome night dinner!

Making use of our Thames side location at the Wyndham Grand Hotel, we took the group from Skype and Microsoft on a wonderful river cruise aboard the Barracuda yacht for the welcome night dinner.

Our second evening was spent at the beautiful Kensington Roof Gardens engaging the whole team with a new marketing campaign as a ‘be together with Skype’ family dinner.

The days consisted of conference sessions, customer engagement activites, executive meetings and motivational speakers. As communication is always at the forefront of their company ethos, our dedicated AV team produced a stunning wall-to-wall LED screen to showcase slides in a visually exciting and engaging way.

After another thought-provoking week of presentations and inter-departmental networking, the delegates left London invigorated for the year ahead.

Showcase of NEC Display Solutions

We were delighted to assist NEC Display Solutions with their annual showcase at Tobacco Dock London last week.

For an event attracting over 1,000 visitors, the right venue is key. Whilst football stadiums & exhibition centres offer large flexible space, an event as high-profile as this needed a location just as exciting as the solutions on display … Tobacco Dock was formally a shopping centre, providing perfectly partitioned spaces to house the various zones for NEC’s zones: Retail, Healthcare and Transport to name a few.

NEC collaborated with over 50 hardware manufacturers and software providers to exhibit fully integrated display solutions, whilst we took care of the guest experience with coach transfers, welcoming cloakroom staff and a tasty ‘grab & go’ style lunch.

Have a look at NEC’s own video to see how the fabulous venue worked on the day, or check out this brilliant time-lapse video of visitors at the event.
