Now in its 21st year, the AV Awards recognises the outstanding achievements of individuals, companies, projects and technology across the AV, events and production sectors.

Held at the ceremony’s new home, Evolution London, we were chosen to deliver technical production for the glamourous evening including lighting, video, rigging and staging. 


Working with a host of technical sponsors, we designed and delivered a futuristic themed production design for the occasion. With Evolution London sporting an extra 2m of height this season, we were able to get super creative with our delivery.

Guests were welcomed into a sparkling drink reception featuring some incredible projection-mapped installations by Motion Mapping. Adding even more wow-factor, a 20m hologram effect combined with a kabuki drop and pyrotechnics revealed the dining area with a bang.

Taking inspiration from the branding for this year’s event, we created a futuristic main stage featuring a city-scape backdrop utilising LED panels to replicate a skyscraper skyline. All video content was created in-house by our expert team.

Utilising over 110 fixtures, a dramatic lighting design delivered dynamic effects for the ceremony and created the perfect party atmosphere for revellers who danced into the early hours.

An unusual triangular stage featuring extra deep steps completed the set-up and ensured a grand walk-up for the evening’s winners. 


“What an absolutely incredible night. We have been inundated with feedback about the production – that it’s the best everyone has seen. It all came together and worked so well. Without a shadow of a doubt, the staging was the highlight of the night – your content was another level. It blew my mind, it was better than I could have possibly expected and I was signing the content off! The event was seamless – I think we’ve even managed to break the internet with all the hype we’ve received!”
