Introducing

The Presidents’ Club Gala Awards Dinner

Location

Norton Park Hotel, Winchester

Background

A four-day conference culminated in The Presidents Club Gala Awards, to which we set to work to create an immersive themed setting. World events prevented the awards from taking place in Paris, so we bought Paris to Winchester.

Summary

Not your traditional awards ceremony, guests embarked upon a Parisian adventure, gala dinner and party with themed areas bought to life by live actors and entertainment. The awards took place live across Europe and the Middle East meaning we had just three hours to transform the room into a Parisian wonderland.

Look & Feel

Guests were welcomed along a red carpet into ‘Cafe Parisienne’ a bistro from which waiting staff served chilled champagne and canapés. Guests enjoyed a stroll around the park, with poodles, vintage bicycles, bubbling fountains and a duo of traditional chanson musicians whilst having their portraits sketched by a charcoal artist. Guests were then wowed by showgirls to the Moulin Rouge all against the backdrop of the iconic Eiffel Tower and opulent art deco awards setting.

The Wow-Factor

The four course meal was interspersed with bursts of entertainment including a Can Can performance, a dazzling glitter ball acrobalance routine and a feather fuelled showgirl number. The night was topped off with the exceptional live party band, Flood the Floor.

The Little Things

Hand delivered personalised teaser notes to guests’ hotel rooms, adorned with laser cut Parisian shaped keepsake charms including poodles and champagne bottles to create intrigue and excitement thought out day.
