The challenge was to design and deliver an inspiring three-day two-night overseas conference and incentive event for 120 employees from across the UK and Ireland. The venue was the newly refurbished Hotel Royal Evian Resort in Evian-les-Bains, France, which offers exquisite levels of service and panoramic views of Lake Geneva.
The programme included a half day conference, bespoke GPS challenge – incorporating a series of stops for guests to sample the local produce – a black tie gala dinner and an après ski party in a private chalet with a spectacular Rockaoke band. We developed an event identity in line with the conference theme, which was consistent across all communications and collateral and formed the design inspiration for the conference stage set. Our dedicated content producers worked with the client to develop the conference messaging and we created video content, provided PowerPoint design, managed speaker rehearsals and ran the show on the day.
Smart Live provided end-to-end project management from delegate communication using an app, to travel management and logistics, as well as content management and AV production, team activities, entertainment and theming. Delegates left France buzzing from a weekend of conferences mixed with celebrating all their hard work throughout the year!
Our client said: "Smart Live produced two of the best conferences our businesses have seen, leading one hard-to-please senior stakeholder to label the process as 'flawless'. I would highly recommend Smart Live to anyone wishing to produce a high-quality event."
