The Event

Our client was looking for a new creative agency to help deliver the creative element of their hackathon event at Sopwell House. We transformed the hotel conference area into a hacking space inspired by Silicon Valley. We branded all areas of the venue to create an exciting and motivating atmosphere, with floor to ceiling bespoke walls, 5ft neon lighting and designing 8 ‘hacking pods’ for each team to work from. Throughout the event we ran a program of be fun energizer activities and foodie breaks to encourage time away from screens, featuring wine tasting, mobile massages and retro games arcade. We utilised a range of the latest technology to enhance and inspire the tasks the teams had been set including providing each team with their very own personalised surface hub where they can digitally scribble down ideas, bring their designs to life and host virtual meetings with their clients direct from the event.


A quick note to say a very big thank you for your magic over these past few months. These last two weeks were such a special moment for our business, and you really helped us realise our ‘elevated vision’ for how we make innovation in our business a tangible experience for our colleagues. From the lighting, room dressing, activities, food to the theatre of our presentation, detail matters and we really made something amazing together. Our leaders, hackers and teams are still buzzing from it all!
