Incase you didn’t hear (even though we’ve been screaming it from the roof tops) we took home the trophy for Best Corporate Event at the Event Industry Awards last Friday (insert dancing GIF)! Over the past 12 months our team has worked tirelessly on delivering flawless corporate events for our clients so this award means the world to us, and proves that hard work really does pay off.
Our team is made up of young, energetic event enthusiasts, who are undoubtedly passionate about delivering unique event experiences for all our clients. Our company values of creativity, innovation, professionalism and reliability remain at the core of everything we do, which is evident in our work.
The event that we won the award for was called “Dropboxegen” and is without a doubt a definite all time favorite for the whole team. The concept for the event was to deliver an unforgettable summer experience for Dropbox staff and their families. This allowed us to split the event in two, the day part being child friendly and the evening allowed all the adults to let their hair down and dance the night away. The event was inspired by the popular children’s nursery rhyme ‘The Teddy Bear’s Picnic’ as it perfectly gelled the transition from daytime family friendly picnic into an evening for the adults. Every element of the event was inspired by a line from the song, including the food, entertainment, theming and décor.
This event was Nikki’s baby so here are some of her thoughts;
“I remember driving in the car on the way back from our first site visit at the K Club and thinking how cool it would be to do a festival themed event in the Walled Garden for Dropbox. The name of the event so very crucial and so we decided to incorporate the infamous Oxegen festival (cue flashbacks) which led to “Dropbox + Oxegen = Dropboxegen!”
Dropboxegen will always hold a very special place in my heart as it was incredible to see so many of my ideas come to fruition and the whole experience on the day was just pure magic! From the music, the food, the fireworks, everything just worked so well and it made us proud to see so many people enjoying something we had created!”
“I’m really proud of our team and delighted that this event won Best Corporate Event! It’s definitely been the piece de resistance of my career to date and I can’t wait to work on more exciting projects like this one!”
Side note – yes, we always wear black!!
