Building on a ground-breaking event in 2018, Procurement Leaders once again appointed SXS as a full-service production partner for their World Procurement Week series of events in 2019.
The events saw CPOs and senior procurement professionals from across the globe come together to network and discuss the trends and challenges facing their industry. Following three days of conference and exhibition, the event culminated in an awards ceremony to celebrate the best and brightest of the procurement industry.
For the main plenary and awards space, the client wanted to engage their guests as much as possible, which can be difficult to achieve when there are over 1000 people in the room. We designed a fully ‘in the round’ stage set, giving 360 degree access to the presentations. This included a circular LED wall above the stage, displaying live camera feeds and content at 3m high above the presenters’ heads. We also provided 3x ultra-wide (9m) LED walls around the perimeter to show presentation and dynamic content.
In addition to the main plenary, we provided full production for 3x breakout spaces, including a ‘silent’ breakout space in the main exhibition which allowed for informal ‘conversation’ style talks without being disrupted by the goings-on in the rest of the exhibition.
We provided full production services for the exhibition space too, including custom printed stand build for exhibitors, and production solutions such as LCD screens, furniture, and lighting which exhibitors ordered online through our ‘XPo’ portal (read more here).
From a management standpoint, SXS was responsible for full end-to-end delivery and support, including:
- Show and presenter management
- Event design and plans
- Full production staffing
- Content creation and management in our studio
Finally, we produced a filmed highlights package of the event which you can see below.
