NHS Management Training Schemes 50th Anniversary
Working in partnership with a major global logistics agency, aps was responsible for the
creative, content and technical elements of the production. The event brief was to showcase
the achievements and key milestones of the previous 50 years and present an inspiring vision
for the future to 1200 delegates at ExCel in London. The program for the event required the
design and construction of a presentation auditorium, exhibition space, dining facilities,
networking hub and party area.
In order to deliver maximum visual impact we created a stage set based on appropriate NHS
branding and incorporating a 25m wide screen. Content was displayed via our in-house media
delivery software. Content included HD video sequences, live performance backdrops, live
video, and key note speech support.
The Insider Property Awards North West is an annual prestigious event rewarding the crème
de la crème of the North West’s property industry. aps organised the installation
of all lighting, data, audio and autocue equipment and liaised directly with the venue to
ensure smooth running on the night.
All thirteen award sponsors walked up to the stage to a personalised 30 second video montage
of key statements, images and logos produced in the aps digital media team. In the centre of the
room we installed a cube screen for live camera relay, above a circular stage for the compere.
Webex and Teleconferencing systems
We manage and deliver many advisory boards in locations across the globe, from
Barcelona to Boston. Linking remote observers via use of Webex and Teleconferencing
Launching a new premium banking service for their most valuable customers, our client
needed to really educate, motivate and inspire their branch management team to both
understand and embrace this ground breaking proposition and ultimately give them the
confidence to promote it with passion.
We developed an inspiring VIP theme to all elements of the conference. We branded the
main conference room and gala dinner venue with the new fresh branding and introduced
a red carpet entrance and paparazzi element. We also injected some real team building
and fun with competitive management games. We combined all production, technical and
creative expertise to deliver an inspiring conference, then managed all logistical
elements to ensure all the delegates enjoyed a memorable dinner at a separate venue.
England kit launch
For such an eagerly anticipated product launch, Umbro needed to really deliver with
impact all the great emotions England supporters all over the country feel while
watching their nation doing them proud. Excitement, passion and pride in abundance.
We created a high impact seven screen multimedia experience with surround sound that
really brought to life what the England team stands for, coming to a spectacular climax
with the kit being revealed, worn by all the key stars of the team.
The launch was also broadcast live by all major broadcast companies and over the
internet using our webcasting services.
Nuclear new Build
To provide a total event management solution for a high profile two day event at
Westminster, for over 500 delegates and government speakers. Our client required multiple
elements including main conference room, break out rooms, dining area and exhibition area.
Our total service approach from concept to delivery enabled us to manage all key elements
including technical design and management, speaker management, content development
and delivery right through to post event highlight materials. The end result was an event
that delighted organisers and delegates alike.
With limited time and resources, our client wanted key individuals to be able to view
an in depth forum on vital research analysis results, discussed in an enclosed meeting
environment by four key therapeutic area experts.
Combining our experienced camera crew and innovative virtual services, we filmed the
event live in Vienna, including presentations and subsequent discussions and broadcast
the event on demand to the selected audience, allowing them to view all elements of the
event, respond to polls and submit questions. Our approach saved our client considerable
time and money and provided a rich viewing experience for their audience.
ASCO Chicago 2009
We had multiple clients attending and needing events of different scale and complexity
at this annual Pharmaceutical congress. Over the 5 day congress, we delivered all the
production elements for over 100 meetings, ranging from multi-image, multi-projection stage
sets for 1200 people, to round-table meetings for 20 people.
A significant volume of the meetings were webcast live and simultaneously translated into 3
different languages. Many sessions were delivered with engaging audience Q & A sessions
where interactive keypad technology was used to really get the most out of the meetings.
70 aps team members worked around the clock to make sure all the meetings, regardless of
size and complexity were delivered successfully, with all clients delighted with the results.
Pharmaceutical Sales Conference
The event was themed totally around James Bond. This started as soon as the delegates got
off the plane. They were each given secret identities with the mission of finding the evil
villan Dr X.
Delegates were given spy packs, with special glasses to view coded messages and were given
theme related team-building tasks all around the island - it was a lot of fun.
We provided all technical support and stage design, we also shot and produced a 'Bond' style
HD opening sequence to introduce all the presenters. This included the obligatory 'Bond girl'
shot in silhouette. Our camera crew followed the delegates on their missions, with an on-site
editor to produce a highlights video which was shown at the close of the event.
We were asked to come up with an innovative staging concept for a 2-day standalone meeting
to take place before the ESOT Congress in Venice. The event had been produced in previous
years using a hard wall set in both Lisbon and Miami. Though the client wished to use a similar
looking set, the sheer size of the room and the fact it was on an island of Venice would have
made it an expensive option to create a new stage set. The room was an open cinema used
primarily for the Venice film festival, and the natural rake of the seating and the large screen
lent themselves perfectly to using projection as a solution.
We used the aps Watchout wide screen presentation, with a twin projection overlay to
create an impressive 20m x 8m viewing area. Graphically, we recreated the existing set design
and projected this on to the screen 'wall'. Using the Watchout picture-in-picture capabilities
and animations, we had multiple insert screens showing everything from live video debates,
surgical videos, PPT and audience response systems.
Pharmaceutical expert forum
The 2009 Cardiovascular & Metabolism Expert forum for 2200 people was held at the Atlantico
Pavilion in Lisbon.
This event was on a huge scale, and we managed all the logistics for technical delivery and
staging. We built a 35m stage set for the event - incorporating 2x12m full HD screens and a
central 7m square screen. Images and videos across these screens were all sequenced together
and controlled using our Watchout system. The event also had 4 breakout meetings, each
having a seperate stage set and exhibition area.
The Vodafone cup was a pre-season tournament, staged at Old Trafford. It featured Manchester
United, PSV Eindhoven, Boca Juniors and Urawa Red Diamonds. aps were responsible for
producing all the branding around the venue, as well as staging and techincal support.
We provided a curved back wall set with graphics for event and sponsor branding, and a
five-man tribunal with the Vodafone Cup sitting on a plinth in front of it. Plasma screens
were fixed either side of the tribunal to reinforce the branding.
The event was attended by approximately 80 press from TV and radio stations as well as
newspapers and magazines. As such, aps had to be prepared to handle requests for audio
and video feeds from journalists on the day. This preliminary press launch was followed by a
further press conference at the start of the tournament, which was also managed by aps.
