This was the fifth year we’ve run the event and it continues to go from strength to strength. The venue looked absolutely fantastic and the video content in particularly was a huge success – definitely something we’ll look at incorporating again at next year’s show.Julia Todd
The UK’s most influential solicitors came together in January for the Modern Law Awards, a prestigious ceremony dedicated to celebrating the UK’s brightest legal professionals. Hosted at London’s luxurious Royal Lancaster Hotel, Saville AV oversaw full technical production for the ceremony as well as creating some seriously cool video content for social media.
Welcoming over 500 guests from firms across the country, the ceremony was dedicated to celebrating businesses and individuals who have been paramount in spearheading change across the industry and driving best practice. Combining a champagne reception, dinner, awards ceremony and evening entertainment, the show was hosted by comedian, Tom Allen, with a silent auction raising money for the Alzheimer’s Society.
Working closely with Charlton Grant, the publishing house behind the awards, Saville AV provided full technical production for the ceremony. The team transformed the Royal Lancaster’s Kings Suite with an 10m LED Absen screen and bespoke graphic surround to match the invitations sent out for the event. In addition, 30 LED moving heads were installed to give the stage that wow-factor when finalists accepted the prestigious awards.
The production highlight however, were the vox pops of the winners that were captured and produced by Saville’s digital team. With 22 categories, including ‘Law Firm of the Year’ and ‘Rising Star’, Saville AV shot video footage of each winner as they left the stage. The team worked rapidly to overlay graphics and music to ensure the clips were social media-ready, with all the content posted on Twitter before the end of the ceremony.
Known for a high calibre of conferences and award ceremonies, Charlton Grant has worked with Saville for a number of years providing the necessary AV and digital to create exciting and engaging events for their client’s.
We have been supporting Charlton Grant, the publishing house behind Modern Law Magazine, for a number of years, and were pleased to be approached once again to oversee these awards. We know exactly what the team are looking for from this event, which means we can make suggestions to enhance the delegate experience. For the first time this year, we captured vox pops of all the winners, working quickly to cut, edit and overlay graphics and sound to ensure they could be posted straight to Twitter.Kevin Sykes
