The Event

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 customers and prospects for a two day event, aimed to deliver both networking opportunities and education on products. The two day conference was based at the Victoria Warehouse, a unique blank canvas venue. This was a perfect backdrop for the branding exposure required and had multiple areas and spaces to allow for main plenary, 4 breakouts and still a large space for catering and networking. Guests were split across the four hotels based on client category and exec level. The event kicked off with an opening session at the Victoria Warehouse, before guests headed off to the Imperial War Museum for the welcome reception. This was then followed by a full day conference and party, where the plenary space was transformed complete with a laser quest dome, LED ping pong, street food, cocktail bar and showstopping LED drummers performance.


“I honestly think that was the best UKI event I’ve been to in my 6 years here. Outstanding work by the event team, great speaker and the venue, while I must I was nervous about, turned out to be brilliant. Great job everybody!”
