IBM wanted to put a unique spin on their team build and conference this year. They wanted to provide a day of fun, exciting activities and a distinctive meeting place to host their conference and guest speaker presentations. In addition they also desired a quirky venue that could accommodate 400 working professionals providing them with a tasty lunch, evening meal and beverages throughout the day.
With our clients vision in mind our team provided a fully themed circus event hosted in the trendy Hawker House situated in the heart of London. Separated across two spacious rooms and an outside dining area, the venue perfectly accommodated the 400 delegates with room to spare.
Our team provided full circus theming complete with large props such as clown masks, balloon bouquets and a circus tent entrance along with all lighting and audio visual. One of the main attractions of the day was the ring masters ring where the main conference and presentations took place with a classic circus seating arrangement.
The 400 delegates split into teams of 30 where they truly had a chance to run away with the circus for a day, learning how to juggle, balloon model and plate spin as well as other fantastic Circus activities. Each team dispersed across the venue looking to gain new skills while competing against one another via their tailor made app, making the day completely personalised and interactive. Scores were placed, pictures were taken and one team came out victorious.
As the day moved into the evening we arranged for our circus performers to deliver a world class circus show for all guests. The evening also included a wide selection of activities from the IBM IX video pod for guests to outline their thoughts of the day, to a selection of interactive activities from our traditional fun fair stalls, Donkey Derby Roll a Ball and our bucking bronco.
Hawker House itself was the ideal venue to host this event as it accommodated all our clients’ needs for space, food and beverage including a wide variety of authentic world street food catering for a working lunch and evening meal.
Overall the event was a fantastic success with our client noting that we had not only met their expectations but exceeded them.
