Event brief & objective:
To create a customer-only conference where learning leaders can gather for their dose of inspiration, innovation, and insight into what modern business leaders want from L&D.
Why did you choose the Science Museum for your event?
We were looking for a stylish venue that could also offer a breakout space for lunch. The Science Museum was easily accessible for our delegates and IMAX: The Ronson Theatre is a super impressive space, which offered all of facilities we required for our event.
What sort of experience did you want to create?
We wanted to create an immersive and engaging seminar session for delegates. The staging and lighting was important to us as we wanted the event to look and feel professional and lux!
How did you choose which spaces at the museum you wanted to use?
We wanted to use a purpose-built theatre, so we didn’t need to kit out 400 chairs, which meant the IMAX was ideal. We also hired the Flight gallery, which worked perfectly with the IMAX.
How did Flight and the IMAX work for your event? What was the benefit of using these spaces?
The IMAX screen was so impressive, and it really helped to immerse delegates in the sessions. We used Flight as our breakout area, and it gave our delegates the opportunity to explore the space and its history.
Who were your catering and AV partners?
Food by Dish for catering and Equip for AV.
