We regularly provide equipment and personnel for events held at The DeVere Venues East Midlands Conference Centre on Beeston Lane in Nottingham. Here’s a selection of the work we’ve recently carried out at the venue:

Blakemore Foodservice’s Catering Awards for two consecutive years. In 2014, we provided a large sound system, special effects, confetti cannons and pyrotechnics. We also filmed the live event and produced a highlights reel that the organisers showed to guests after presenting the last award. In 2015, we also provided custom logo projection, stage set and lighting.

We also assisted with other awards evening at the EMCC venue.  This time, for the European Flexographic Industry Association. We supplied equipment and personnel for two different rooms during the event. The first was a “party room” with a band. The second was the main gala room, where the awards ceremony took place. Alongside operating the equipment supplied by the venue, we supplied camera equipment and provided support with live streaming and filming.   We also supplied lighting equipment, custom gobo projection, staging and haze effects.

More recently, we provided indoor and outdoor lighting for Now: Pensions at the launch of their new office on Park Row in Nottingham City Centre. We lit up the building’s exterior with battery uplighters and projected the company’s logo across the front. Inside the building, we supplied and rigged party lighting to enhance the celebratory atmosphere.
