What was the event brief & objective?

London & Partners wanted to bring key stakeholders together to discuss the importance of the Esports and gaming industry to London. Highlighting the successes so far and what needs to be done to allow it to grow and flourish. We wanted the content on stage to educate the audience while also allowing plenty of time for networking.

Why was the Science Museum chosen for this event?

The Science Museum was an amazing strategic partner to work with. The space was amazing both in terms of practicality and the very important wow factor.

What sort of experience did you want to create?

We wanted to create a combination of fun with high-level professionalism which the IMAX: The Ronson Theatre and Power Up did fantastically well.

How did you choose which space/s at the museum you wanted to use?

The IMAX is perfect for our audience. The screen allows for a really powerful presentation on the screen along with comfortable seating and a perfect view of the screen/stage. Power Up allowed the audience to re-live their youth playing the range of incredible games and a perfect space for general networking. It was clear from the site visit which areas we’d use and how they would work nicely together.

How did IMAX: The Ronson Theatre and Power Up work for the event?

There are a number of standout features which helped the event to really shine. Consoles from every era in Power Up, the premium screen in the IMAX and the exclusive space allowing us to have full ownership of the area.
