Meetings and Incentive Travel Industry Awards 2009
In November 2008, Comtec Presentations were set a challenge like no other. After a successful pitch presentation, we were given the chance to once again work with CAT Publications; this time, we had to impress over 600 industry insiders at the Meetings and Incentive Travel Industry Awards 2009. This event, held at Novotel London West, rewards industry bodies in such categories as Best UK Hotel, Best Overseas Airline and Best Event Management Company and showcases the best of the best.
Our challenge was to ensure that the ceremony amazed and excited and went that extra mile to set the industry standard.
The M&IT Industry Awards have wowed audiences previously with large-scale wide screen and multi-screen technologies so Comtec had to really push the boundaries and go one step further.
The theme for this year’s awards was The International Astronomy Year and Ron Gilmour, our Special Projects Director, came up with a fitting idea; a curved screen – but not just any curved screen. A 45ft wide, 12ft high curved screen that would test our imagination and our skills to the limit.
The rig, although challenging due to the huge amount of aerial work required, was completed with speed and efficiency by our dedicated team of technical engineers.
The colossal screen, 3 curved stages and 2 plasma lecterns made up the fantastic set design and the complex lighting programme ensured that the set maximized its full potential.
