Wesleyan Assurance Society’s annual awards dinner

Awards Dinner
The ICC, Birmingham.
For the sixth year running, TechPro were asked to provide technical requirements for Wesleyan Assurance Society’s annual awards dinner.

The 175th Anniversary Awards, which were held for 960 Delegates, took place in Hall 3 at The ICC, Birmingham. 

The day consisted of an early morning rig, afternoon rehearsals, an evening awards dinner and an early morning De-Rig. 

Throughout the evening there were various speeches, including entertainment from guest speaker, Matt Dawson. Awards were presented before dinner, including an ‘Elite Winner’s Award’ for which we had a purpose built set created; this opened up to reveal the 65 award winners on stage together. To complete the night, confetti cannons were set off and a DJ provided fun for all 960 guests. 

Just to say Lee has been awesome to work with. One of the nicest Project Managers I’ve come across in a long time – and we get a fair few though here.Good on H&S, quick replies on questions and requests.  Jayne thinks he’s great too.See you on the next one.
