500 guests, all valued adidas employees arrived on individually themed luxury coaches for the annual Christmas ball that topped them all... After an initial taste of the theme, the staff were escorted into the venue from their heavenly carriages by immaculate Angels or from their hellfire chariots by mischievous demons. This versatile team of stunning models, comic performers, and street artists such as fire-breathers and stilt walkers lead the wandering souls into the venue and thrilled them with performances before and during the meal.
Dramatic lighting and decor split the ballroom literally down the middle – one half with a cool blue heavenly glow cast over crisp white tables and chairs that sparkled with iridescent stars. Cloud-covered table-centres complimented pure white floral arrangements. Silvery halos and angel wings awaited the guests assigned to these tables, named after the Gods of Greek mythology.
In contrast, gobos moved around the walls and created flame-like flickering red lighting through an eerie mist that hung over black tables and chairs in the hellish half of the ballroom. Goblets bubbling with mysterious potions, chilled with dry ice were served to the guests the before being doomed to their tables, named after imps, demons and beasts from popular folklore. As the incredible hot band grew louder, the guests grabbed their pitchforks and got stuck in to an unforgettable night that shook the heavens and raised hell.
This outstanding roadshow event toured 5 cities to show recognition and appreciation to over 2000 staff that made up this integral division of the Royal Bank of Scotland. One of the top hotels in each city provided both the party venue and overnight accommodation to allow guests to recover from a dinner-dance that brought the world famous19th century Parisian cabaret to life.
Folis Bergere style hostesses greeted the guests on arrival at the venue and lead them to tables donned in rich burgundy velvet cloth, feathers and fishnet tight covered, leg-like table centres.
The atmospheric lighting transformed during the course of the event, as did the costumes of authentic European Can-Can dancers who flirtatiously dazzled the guests during the meal of well- presented French bistro dishes.
Multifunctional video screens were cleverly integrated into the set to support the award presentation sections of the event and in other moments to display Parisian scenes and excerpts from the stylish 2001 movie. The stage mimicked the design of that in the original Moulin Rouge to showcase fantastic singers, talented dancers and most importantly, the award-winning stars of the organisation
An awards ceremony with a difference. Working together with our client EXXON, we created the ROSC awards (Retail Outlet Service Centres) so their outstanding employees could be appreciated and rewarded in a most memorable and innovative way. This was so successful it will be repeated annually.
One of the city’s longest running concert and exhibition venues was hired exclusively to host over 800 international guests for an engagement party of epic proportions. Each guest received their invitation in the form of a heavily gilded fans contained in a decorative books, embossed with the couple’s logo. Attendees travelled from all over the globe to celebrate the union of two families from India and Kenya who never cut corners when it comes to a party.
A twinkling red carpet lit the way from outside the venue into the luxury drinks reception that was set against a starlit backdrop. Once all the guests had arrived the starlit backdrop slowly raised to reveal the banqueting area - The Enchanted Forest. The vast space was scattered with golden trees over 10ft tall which stood between ornately dressed tables with bronze organza overlays on heavy damask cloths in front of gold Camelot chairs. Elegant topiary birds and woodland creatures seemingly grazed around the space. Gold flowers on long vines wound themselves around the four poster stage in the centre of the room where the hosting family dined under a forest canopy.
The finest Asian Fusion caterers offered varied, colourful food stations around the room, as well as a sumptuous six course banquet served at the tables by silver service waiters dressed in uniform in the style of the Raj. The amazing international fifteen piece band kept everyone on the forest floor and a highly acclaimed troupe of African dancers and acrobats were diverted from their international tour in honour of the bride-to be’s family and friends on this elegant and truly magical evening.
