DFA Productions, an Event Management and Communications Agency were approached by adi Group to pitch for a very exciting 25 Year Anniversary Event to around 500 employees.
The event had to have the ‘WOW’ factor, must engage all employees and above all motivate the team and BE SPECTACULAR and MEMORABLE!
Following a number of meetings with adi Directors DFA Productions was awarded the very prestigious project.
adi Group were basically looking to engage with one company that could manage and produce the whole and complete event. They wanted one company to take responsibility for all the elements to make a hugely successful event, which included creative design, the messages to colleagues, (vital for the success of an event), video production and editing, set and stage design and build, Lighting and AV requirements, delegate management and special effects.
The day event was spent looking back over the last 25 years, how the company had evolved using video footage and stills from the past and present. A number of awards were given to individuals who had made a huge difference and contribution to the business over the past 25 years.
This was followed by outdoor team building activities and a fabulous Gala Dinner in the evening with pole dancers, stage dancers, lighting displays, lasers, pyrotechnics and a fashion show.
adi Group also wanted to launch the new work wear range to all their staff in a dynamic style so DFA Productions worked closely with a dance school and a choreographer created a fabulous fashion show using a cat walk to reveal the new work wear, which utilised Intelligent Lighting, Lasers and Live Cameras.
A Pro HD multi-camera PPU handled the live content for each screen and three screens were constantly switched between, from split live camera, VTs and graphics.
Lighting the event, we rigged a 40 metre truss close to the downstage edge and a catwalk truss with various fixtures including moving heads, LED Sharpies and five lasers. Control of this was via one of our Avolites Pearl lighting consoles.
Audio – due to the width, orientation and pure size of the stage we designed a dispersed audio system comprising of D&B Q series speaker cabinets and E8s. Countryman headset microphones on Sennheiser radio body packs were used for the presenters along with a lectern microphone kit. Audio control was via one of our Yamaha LS9 digital consoles.
