2016 was filled with some amazing events for us at Davis Events so it’s no better time than any to reflect on the past 12 months! I’ve taken a look back at some of the events that stood out to me and the reasons why I loved being apart of them! Here’s some of my event highlights from 2016 with Davis Events…
Dropbox at Dublin Pride Parade
Dublin Pride, without a doubt, is one of the most enjoyable events to work at! Tens of thousands of people gather on the streets of Dublin for this colourful and joyful celebration! It’s hard not to have a smile on your face at this one!
We designed an open top float for our client Dropbox which had Dublin’s finest DJ and Sax duo along with a live bongo player. Every time we turned a corner in the parade, people would start dancing along with the music! Eventually a crowd of people joined in with the Dropbox march and followed the float to the party at Merrion Square, dancing the whole way!

Hilton Garden Inn Launch
I always jump at the opportunity to deliver a creative event proposal for a corporate event! We usually get the team together to brainstorm ideas and I love thinking of unique ways to meet a client brief, everything from the theming to entertainment and catering.
It paid off when Hilton Garden Inn chose Davis Events when we pitched an enchanted garden theme for their relaunch event!
Guests were immersed in an enchanted garden experience as soon as they entered through the grassy walkway surrounded by flowers and lanterns. At every twist and turn there was magic in the garden from the woodland décor, enchanted mirror, floral ice sculpture and the garden illustrator, even the food was themed after each of the seasons! The experience of witnessing your event finally come together is something really special and is so rewarding to see your hard work pay off! It’s always fun to see guests enjoy themselves at the event you helped create.
18th Annual Global Airfinance Conference
As you know by now I love when we’re given the chance to use our creativity for a corporate event, this was my first one with Davis Events so it will always stand out to me. We went all out on the production and design of two distinctive VIP drinks reception events at the 18th Annual Global Airfinance Conference by developing two event concepts ‘Star Gazing’ and ‘Extravaganza of Wonderment’.
We had the opportunity to completely transform the CCD for this event, which took place over 5 floors. We utilised every space and created unique networking and business lounge areas as well as identifying branding opportunities to produce a strong brand presence for the client and sponsors. It was a great opportunity to work on an event of this size and to create something unique in the CCD plus I don’t think I’ll ever walk as much as I did over those three days!
