We are very proud to announce that last night we picked up the much-coveted Event Production Supplier of the Year award at The Drum Experience Awards 2018. 

To scoop the much-coveted accolade, we showcased our work on the Adobe Summit EMEA 2018, a two-day digital marketing conference held at ExCel in London. We were tasked to bring agency Taylor Bennett Partners’ impressive vision to life, delivering the technical production for the main conference plenary, exhibition space, break-out rooms and the Summit Celebration evening event. Featuring a spectacular interactive projection mapped globe, a mind-bending LED slide and a whole heap of technical wizardry, the Adobe Summit once again raised the bar for inspiring brand experiences.

We also featured our work on BBC Worldwide Showcase 2018 where, for the 12th year running, we delivered full technical production for two hotly-anticipated evening events. In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the moon landing, we created an out-of-this-world dining experience for night one featuring a stunning 7m projection-mapped planet. Night Two saw Doctor Who take over the Echo Arena for an incredible intergalactic dining experience. With just fourteen hours to transform the arena floor into a dining space fit for the Doctor, we repurposed the large projection screen from the previous evening, adding unusual curved LED wings to display the latest Doctor Who content.

By highlighting these stand-out projects alongside the enormous level of growth and innovation seen at the company this year, we were able to stand out from our competitors.  

Peter Harding, Creative Director at Hawthorn, said "We're absolutely thrilled to have been named Event Production Supplier of the Year. The Awards recognise the very best talent within the events industry with a particular focus on experience, so to be recognised amongst our peers here is the highest honour and a real testament to the hard work that the Hawthorn team have put in over the past twelve months. We've had the opportunity to work with so many fantastic clients on a whole host of amazing events this year and we're very excited to see what 2019 holds."  

This is not the first awards-night success for us this year, having picked up the award for ‘Event Production of the Year’ at Event Production Awards 2018 for Adobe Summit EMEA 2017 and ‘Live Event of the Year’ at the AV Awards 2018 for Adobe Summit EMEA 2018.
