The Set-Up Details of our Conference Production for Sodexo

This was a large one day conference and gala dinner for Sodexo, with over 400 guests invited, typical of the type of conferences we work on. The venue was the Palace Suite at the prestigious Hilton Birmingham Metropole hotel.

We provided full conference production and management, which required an overnight set-up starting at 1 am, with the rig ready at 8 am on the morning of the conference for rehearsals. We needed a large technical crew of 16 to complete the work on time, which included:

  • A bespoke twin screen set with 2 x 20k projectors.
  • Ceiling rigging, with 16 moving lights, plus 12 static lighting and 24 wireless up-lighters.
  • A 10 speaker front of house PA system with additional subs and monitor speakers,
  • A technician talk back system for the crew

The Guests Had a Great Time

During the conference part of the day, every table had an iPad. This enabled guests to interact and engage with the proceedings, which featured several speakers. When this kind of technology is used, there is no substitute for hard work in the preparation, planning and rehearsals to make sure everything works perfectly. Thankfully it did.

The evening featured a ‘round the world’ buffet with a disco and a whole host of free-flow games. These included indoor target shooting and scalextric through to skittle alley, photo booths and arcade games. Everyone ate well and enjoyed the entertainment.

What the client said:
"A massive thank you for all your support around our Service Operations conference. I spoke to a lot of people who said it was the best Sodexo conference they’d been to. It was super slick, and they loved the iPad interaction."
