The challenge

The aim was to start the process of engaging with suppliers for the expansion programme, sharing the vision of the project being a nationwide infrastructure programme with economic benefits spanning across England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. 

The solution

Consultancy and hands-on support from conception through to final event delivery. With the objective of highlighting that the third runway will be a country-wide infrastructure programme with a focus on digital solutions. We researched and selected the venue, consulted on creative production and event design, developed the concept for ensuring all sorts of event elements were aligned with the messaging – even the catering was a celebration of British-ness!

An audience of 450 + civil engineering specialists and Heathrow representatives participated in an interactive and visually impactful conference, which took place in Birmingham. Working in collaboration with the venue’s in-house production team, we designed a bespoke circular stage which sat in the centre of the room, with innovative lighting and audio-visual solutions. The modern production design encouraged the sense of collaboration and enhanced the digital feel of the event, while the break-out space allowed for valuable networking and knowledge sharing about the benefits of becoming a supplier for the expansion programme. We used digital solutions for signage and content as well as an augmented reality app to enhance the message that the client-supplier relationship will be digitally driven.
