Town Hall Address President Barack Obama

President Obama’s Town Hall Address to 500 young UK leaders as part of his farewell tour

After a formal tender process Oxygen were selected, by the American Embassy, to produce the event with just 4 days’ notice. The event was a Town Hall address at Lindley Hall in which President Obama addressed 500 young UK leaders. Extensive staging, lighting and audio were required whilst being acutely aware of the security aspects of the event.

As a part of his London trip Obama spoke at the Town Hall event of the successes and frustrations of his presidency and his hopes for the future before throwing the floor open to questions from his young audience.
Working alongside Lindley Hall, Oxygen provided lighting, audio, staging, flags and furniture as well as a power distribution package and two synchronized 250kva generators all with just 4 days’ notice.

“As I mentioned Saturday, we cannot thank you enough for your help in making the town hall event come off so smoothly, and I hope Oxygen and the Embassy will get to work together again in the future.”

Wharton University Global Tour

Engaging with successful alumni in a uniquely presented and informal way

The London show hosted 200 guests and incorporate a unique video format, staging and display platform. High level business presentations preceded questions to the panel from the guests.

Oxygen integrated a 16ft circular stage, scalloped stretch fabric backdrop and branded the main feature with LED video wall panels, hung from truss goalposts either side of the stage.  Oxygen also produced on brand lighting to the stage, set and room, and a crystal clear Nexo audio system was rigged with the show lighting to the ceiling truss, in order to keep clean lines to the room, ensuring multi camera shot footage was beautifully presented. 

The full installation, show and de-rig was completed within just 11 hours.

“This was the fourth of seven scheduled events; I can honestly say it was by far the most seamless, fluid installation and also the best, most impressive set of them all. You exceeded my expectations. The lighting effects were perfect. Your team was a pleasure to work with and your attention to detail was incredible. My clients were very happy and impressed. Oxygen had really done their homework, and you made it look so easy. Forgive my Yank expression but everything was awesome. I would not hesitate to recommend your services to anybody. I hope we can work together again because it really was a wonderful experience.”

IAA Summer Ball

Working with the International Advertising Association for over 7 years, producing their annual Summer and Christmas events.

Each year there is a different theme ranging from 1920s through to this year’s Cirque de la publicitié.

The Hurlingham Club was transformed into a circus theme with an elaborate lighting design for the dining area, venue and dance floor and the columns were draped with red and white fabric. Guests were entertained by a sponsored green screen circus themed photo op, circus entertainment and the night was finished off with a talented London DJ.

“Thanks to you and your team for a great event tonight. I got lots of compliments tonight on how much people enjoyed the event. You and your team were as professional as ever.”

ESSO Synergy Launch

Working with agency Weber Shandwick to produce and deliver the Esso Synergy Launch

Working closely with the venue, who operate as a museum during the day, we worked out a detailed installation schedule to achieve the brief.

The installation was split across an overnight build and early access on the day of the event. We built a seamless 13m long screen and 3 x 20K Barco Flex projectors were blended across a seamless super wide screen with a total resolution of 4334 x 1200. The specially produced content was supported with one of Jeff Wayne’s own arrangements re-worked for the content. Entertainment was provided by a special performance from Britain’s Got Finalists UDI who use UVI light to produce a dynamic visual show.

High End Awards Show

Oxygen installed a large double screen all white 3D set. Projected onto the centre of the set was a large Mines and Money logo. The set was lit using a series of carefully hidden LED battens allowing us to colour change throughout the evening. The room was beautifully lit from profile fixtures on the two truss sections hung from the ceiling, and LED moving lights brought excitement and movement into the room.

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.”

Summer Fete Wedding

The informality of a village fete with the style and formality of a wedding ceremony

For their wedding this couple wanted to create a summer fete feel for their big day. To achieve this we bought in an antique carousel and a pink helter-skelter with some traditional side show stalls to provide some of the unique entertainment. We installed a number of different tents and Chinese hats dotted around the venue to create different areas including a tea room and bar. Speeches were held from a band stand in the centre of the field whilst guests enjoyed a picnic lunch from baskets and branded blankets.

Oxygen supplied all the rides, structures, bandstand, PA and power distribution for this amazing, if a bit different, wedding.

Egyptian themed dinner dance birthday party

A stylish Egyptian themed dinner dance on a private estate with, after- dinner cabaret entertainment

We designed a bespoke temporary structure overlooking the lake, with huge glass-walled pagodas leading to a fully produced dining and performance structure. A large pyramid stage was constructed complete with theatrical effects of dry ice, hydraulic lift artist reveal and an extensive moving head and LED lighting rig.

A swing trio entertained during dinner followed by a fully choreographed Egyptian Dance show complete with pyrotechnics and magical illusions. The evening was concluded by a jaw-dropping firework show over the lake, set to live music.

All structures and associated facilities, power generation and distribution, interior and exterior lighting design & installation, staging audio and entertainment were provided by Oxygen.

“Thanks very much for an amazing party and please pass on my congratulations to all involved – for the past two weeks Mum and I have been ploughing our way through HUNDREDS of thank you letters and it would appear our party is close to being voted the party of the decade! Of course, this is all due to your team’s hard work and dedication and I hope that they all enjoyed the evening as much as we did.”

Garden Marquee Anniversary Party

Bespoke structure encompassing the second floor of both houses to ensure all guests are part of the party where ever they are

Logistically challenging, the marquee was built on 6m legs and guttered to the two houses. Star cloth was installed to create a sparkling effect and a mirrored dance floor and bar were built into the flower beds. Atmospheric lighting cut through to highlight the marquee and areas within the marquee and the hedges were lit from within.
