After taking part in a rigorous tender process, we were appointed by Sophos to manage the end to end delivery of their UK Partner Conference. This annual event brings together Sophos customer and prospects for a two day event, aimed to deliver both networking opportunities and education on products.
We begun by putting together a creative proposal to demonstrate our vision for the exhibition solution, set design and venue branding. This was the first year Europe had spilt out from the global event, so being creative with a smaller budget was key. We won the pitch against three other agencies and were awarded with the contract. From here we worked alongside Channel Advisor developing their sponsorship packages, and managing theirs sponsors throughout the pre event process to hit key artwork and design deadlines. We then developed set designs based on the sister conference in the US and tailored to the needs for the European audience. As well as creating the perfect branding opportunities throughout the venue. The conference was for one day and begun with a keynote speech in the auditorium, followed by a variety of breakouts and 1-2-1 meetings and breakout into the sponsorship area throughout the day for networking. With full onsite management, we were able to deliver production, exhibition, registration and an exceptional delegate experience.
“I cannot express how happy i am with how well Connect went. Everything from pre-event management to flawless delivery was exceptional. We're already hearing back from our sponsors on how well everything was communicated and organised. The entire project was such a dream to run from start to finish. Your advice along the way was so appreciated. The executive team from the US now want to replicate what we did here in the US so that's probably the best feedback so far internally. ”
