The European Sponsorship Association (ESA) brought together nominees and special guests for their 2017 Excellence Awards in our impressive Making the Modern World gallery on the 7th February.
As the venue sponsor, we were delighted to have such a prestigious event hosted in one of our most popular event spaces. The awards recognised excellence within the sponsorship industry, with categories that reflect the evolving way in which sponsorships are being used by marketers. Winning campaigns included Bridgestone ‘Chase Your Dream, No Matter What’ and the Vodafone Comedy Festival.
On the night, guests began the evening in Energy Hall, which had been bathed in violet light to match the association’s own branding. An electronic violinist and roaming ballerinas entertained guests as they enjoyed reception drinks. Guests then made their way through Exploring Space to Making the Modern World and enjoyed a performance by light jugglers, Kaleidoscope.
A sumptuous three-course meal was provided by Bubble, including a starter of burrata with beetroot caponata, a main of braised beef cheek and a show-stopping dessert of cinder toffee sundae. Lighting and production were provided by White Light.
Following the formalities, winners celebrated by dancing the night away in Exploring Space.
