We are very proud to announce that last week we picked up the award for ‘Event Production of the Year’ at The Event Production Awards 2018. 

The Event Production Awards is attended by the industry’s finest organisers, suppliers and contractors and aims to showcase, highlight and reward success and excellence.

To scoop the award, we showcased our work at the Adobe Summit EMEA 2017. Working with agency Taylor Bennett Partners, we delivered full technical production for the immersive two-day event which saw 5,000 digital marketing professionals gather for the thought-leading Adobe brand experience. This included delivering the technical production for the main conference plenary, exhibition space, break-out rooms and the muchly anticipated Summit Celebration. From the creation of a virtual waterfall to the installation of an interactive ceiling using 1017 panels of LED, the event was a true technical challenge. You can read more about it here.

Scott Rooney-Ashby, Account Director at Hawthorn, accepted the award on the night and said "We're over the moon to receive the award for ‘Event Production of the Year’ at this year’s Event Production Awards. With the ceremony celebrating the hard work and achievements of key suppliers and contractors to the industry, it’s such an honour to be recognised by our peers. We’re committed to providing cutting-edge solutions for our clients and to continue pushing the boundaries of technical production. Receiving this award recognises not just this but also the hard work and dedication of the entire Hawthorn team who worked so hard to deliver such an incredible event.”

Hawthorn’s Creative Director Pete Harding, who led the team working on Adobe Summit EMEA, said “The Summit is always an exciting project for us to deliver. Taylor Bennett are renowned for creating exceptional brand experiences and each year they present us with a new set of exciting technical challenges to solve to bring their amazing vision to life. The Event Production Awards have an esteemed judging panel featuring the best in the industry so I’m incredibly proud of the entire Hawthorn team for the win”.
