Case Study: Costain’s ’Celebrating Success’ Awards

Posted on Friday, April 17, 2009

We were delighted to be appointed for the 3rd year running to stage the Costain awards.

Our design team once again did an excellent job of creating a state of the art stage set that was simply breath taking. The production team provided a top quality sound and AV service and the all important spot light operators were fantastic on the night at picking out the winners from each table and making them shine all the way up to the stage to collect their award.

The table design was unique for Costain featuring black banqueting chairs, black table cloths with cerise pink satin napkins rolled and tied with a black cord tassel, cerise pink and lime green table arrangements which were then finished off with lime green t-lights in clear glass holders. The printed name cards and menus also utilise these fabulous colours to complete the wow factor.

Sharper Solutions were also responsible for staging the main entertainment for the evening which featured our stunning electric string quartet. The act gave Costain true value for money by performing a thirty minute spot during reception drinks as an acoustic string quartet and then a 30 minute cabaret show after dinner where the act changes completely. From demure to eye catching beauty; these four ladies hit the stage with a vibrant and entertaining electric string show that had the audience on their feet applauding.

Our top corporate DJ then took over to ensure the dance floor was packed for the rest of the evening.

"Just a line to say thanks for all your help in organising the Awards. Your professionalism and serenity were to the fore at all times and that, in itself, made a huge contribution to the success of the night."

Graham Read, Communication Director
