Saville has made the entire event seamless and if there’s ever any issues, we certainly don’t know about them! Working with Saville is always a great experience.Norville Stephenson
Dolce & Gabbana, Prada and Gucci were just a few names on the guest list for Debenhams’ annual conference, held to train, motivate and educate their retail sales consultants in the run up to the festive season. For the tenth year, Saville worked alongside full service event management agency, Avenue Events, providing full technical production for this design-led two-day conference.
Taking place at the Jury’s Inn, Hinckley Island in Leicester, over 300 guests enjoyed the showbiz treatment and trod the red carpet, before being invited to enjoy a range of main stage sessions and group activities. Top global fragrance brands including Chanel, Gucci and Lancôme hosted a variety of experience zones, where guests could learn more about the brands and their latest products.
Saville supported Avenue Events with all things technical, providing full audio visual for the main conference which comprised a series of plenary sessions, workshops and an Oscars inspired gala dinner. Kit included lighting, audio and projection as well as two 5m Absen LED screens to display some cool content and Pixel Mesh panelling to create a central presenter entrance on stage.
The excellent after dinner entertainment featured the launch of Jean Paul Gaultier’s ‘Scandal’, turning the space into a traditional underground speakeasy, complete with haze effects and moving lighting.
This is a fantastic event to work on and we’re delighted to have recently wrapped up our tenth year working on it. Partnering with both Avenue Events and Sarah Edwards at Debenhams for this length of time means we have developed an in-depth knowledge of their requirements and expectations, and they trust us to just get on with it.Sara Rogers
