Global Leaders Conference & Dinner

Every element planned to perfection across multiple venues

Taking over complete management, Oxygen planned and executed two global leader’s conferences in three months. Working to achieve the best for a clientele with impeccable professional standards we transformed the Hilton Docklands and Hilton Park Lane for the conferences. The set and AV was creatively designed in a tiered horse shoe shape to create an open forum for discussions whilst no stage was used. A projection overlay technique was used to create both the moving, changing set design and the power point.

The gala dinners took place in Lindley Hall and Christ Church, Spitalfields both transformed to create a stunning setting.

Services included:

  • Venue Finding
  • Full technical production
  • Furniture, floristry and branding
  • Multi-space Wi-Fi installations
  • Exclusive top down management

“Thank you yet again for the tireless work of your team. No request was too much trouble. We couldn’t have done it without you.”

Restaurant Associates Annual Summit

A relaxed atmosphere conference at Lindley Hall installed within 2 hours

With a little over 2 hours to rig the event we executed an efficient and controlled set up which included the rigging of a large 22x9m drape to create a break out area for reception and catering and a reveal of the main conference space. Our stage and set were designed to match the aesthetic of the hall and we utilised trees, foliage and a live graphic recorder to reflect the theme with a live camera feed.

“Thank you so much to you and the team for delivering a sterling job at our event! The day was a great success and we’ve received some great feedback.”

Restaurant Associates Re-brand Launch Event

Restaurant Associates spent 6 months working on their re-brand and it was extremely important to them to have a space that would get across the passion which had gone into the design. It needed to be modern and feel like an extension of the venue, whilst using the space to create the maximum seating area within the columns which ran central to the room.

The presentation space was built using white stage flats covering the back wall of the venue, creating a large backdrop with a central screen. It was designed to maximise the impact of the graphics and power point presentation. The stage included a catwalk podium which gave the Managing Director space to come out into the audience to interact, as well as being able to interact with the guest speakers.

NATO Conference at 8 Northumberland

The conference included a keynote presentation from the First Secretary of State and Secretary of State for Foreign & Commonwealth Affairs, William Hague, amongst other high-profile speakers. This event required AV, audio, video conference and simultaneous translations solutions.

Oxygen worked closely with NATO to produce this high-level conference which took place over two days at 8 Northumberland. In addition to the video, audio and lighting equipment required, the conference included a live video conference with NATO forces commander in Kabul, 5 ways of simultaneous translation complete with 240 infra-red headset receivers and 60 push-to-talk delegate microphones.

“Trust me you were a great team and your technicians were extraordinary. Please note that for a number of reasons it was one of the most difficult ever to put together but for me it was one of the best organised so from my side it was perfect.”

Astra Summer Party Event

Lighting to maximise the architecture , bring out the dramatic flowers and highlight the furniture whilst creating the illusion of a Twilight

Oxygen lit the exterior of the church including the Spire using LED Martin Auras which colour changed throughout the evening. The venue was transformed with purple up lighters which lit the columns, whilst soft green and pink colours were used across the floor as a break up wash. The ceiling was the highlight of this design which used JB LED A7 in an intense blue and stars projected over the top to create a twilight effect.

“I just wanted to pen you all a quick email to thank you for your contribution to last night’s Astra summer party.  It was a top draw effort from all and my client (and the all-important boss) were delighted.  Christchurch looked splendid, I look forward to working with you in the future.”

Prog Rock Music Industry Awards

Celebrating Prog Rock’s greatest including lifetime achievement award for Genesis

Hosted by Future Publishing, within the Joseph Banks Building at Kew Gardens, this industry award show celebrated Prog Rock’s greatest, including Asia, ELP, The Moody Blues, Roxy Music, Marillion, Steve Hackett, Fish, It Bites and Anathema.

As well as being the first time the event had taken place, it was also the first corporate event to take place in the newest addition to Kew Gardens venue portfolio, The Sir Joseph Banks Building. Oxygen produced and managed the award show production and installed a stunning white stage set complete with colour-changing LED battens and the room was lit with a mixture of LED colour-changing fixtures and ceiling gobo wash. The welcome drinks and media reception was held in the Nash Conservatory.

International Conference at the Dubai Autodrome

Pole position theming for DHL, working in partnership with Maverick

A stunning start to the conference with video of a DHL liveried F1 car racing round the Autodrome track and ultimately arriving in the pit garage where the conference was taking place. The Managing Director climbed from the car and made his way to the stage to huge, excited applause.

All delegates were dressed in pit mechanics overalls and enjoyed a series of presentations, some F1 themed team-building sessions followed by an evening cocktail party. Oxygen provided and managed all video, lighting, audio and set installation.
