In this very unexpected venue they had to set up a double projection to showcase videos, install an underwater sound system for a water ballet demonstration, install a full sound system in the room for an auction sale and record the whole event.
A nice job supporting a great cause.
“Starting with a simple dual Screen and Drape/Starcloth backdrop we added LED uplights, colour changing between different shades of blue and moving head lights to create the mood lighting for the evening. During dinner, the BBC’s Rob Walker was out in the room interviewing sporting legends such as Kriss Akabusi, Paula Radcliffe and using a cameraman (and lots of cable!) we sent the interviews on live relay to the Projection and Plasma screens in the room.” Liam Mc Grady, PSAV ETM at the hotel.
The evening was concluded in the Palace Suite Pre-function area, which during the interview with Mo Farrah we transformed to give a nightclub feel using 18 LED Uplights and two laser units along with a bespoke DJ Booth incorporating LED tape.
With the evening being such a success, the ‘Audience with’ format will be returning to Royal Garden next year with PSAV as the AV partner.
It took two months, a lot of conference calls and emails, site visits and quite a few 3-D renderings to come up with this result. The set up required two full day with first the installation of the set and then all the AV equipment.
“This week was very good for us, thank you for your support and professionalism. This meeting will really be remembered and you played a huge part in it.”
See the team bring the rendering to reality
The PSAV team created a set with a dual screen flat white panel set, a custom built lectern with artwork, some lighting to the stage and the set, a flown PA system and relayed 60″ LED screens around the ballroom. Six technicians worked on the set up of the event to make sure everything was perfect for the evening.
”The event really required a focus on quality, tidiness and overall professionalism – all the things PSAV strive for” PSAV Director of Event Technology at the Dorchester.
Haymarket’s brief to PSAV was to run a cutting edge event in the Excel centre London and a party in the O2 that won’t be forgotten. So we had to devise an event that was fun, interactive and memorable to a high level media audience. The PSAV team led by James Badger, Nick St Hilaire and Shrenik Singhavi did an outstanding job to support this event.
iPads were handed out to all 300 delegates, pre loaded with a custom build App, allowing a live twitter feed (check out #m360UK to see more). All the presentations were fully interactive and streamed via iPads, including questions and voting which created a huge buzz.
The Set was custom built and needed to be special, and break out rooms were created for such names as Yahoo and Channel 4. In the evening the event moved to the world famous O2 area, where PSAV ran the 10 year party. This included band, awards, DJ and projection mapping on 3D cubes, with photos and twitter feeds. It was again a great success
“I’m really satisfied with the services received by PSAV – the process from beginning to end has been very smooth and the team was flexible, professional onsite and above all, fun to work with. The iPad app and Mithoughts app were very well received and we have received lots of positive feedback.” Katie Tatham from Haymarket
