We were delighted to be involved in the Society of Editors National Press Awards, following our successful delivery of both last year’s events; The National and Regional Press Awards. We have a strong relationship with the Society and the event organisers Magstar, going back several years, and seeing the event grow over time has been really exciting.
For 2016 the event moved to the Hilton Park Lane, a large room with plenty of space to create interesting guest experiences. We work in the Hilton Ballroom on a regular basis and applied our knowledge and experience to specify a solution suitable for the Press Awards.
As the Society is a not for profit organisation the budget for the awards would not allow all the latest technology, and ostentatious production would not be suitable.
Our set was broken into three sections, making use of the existing marble pillars in the room, and giving a large central section. This allowed a set that was proportional to the size of the room, but delivered in the most efficient way possible. Fret cut lettering, printed vutek canvas and gold effect printed vinyl were used to brand the set and stage.
