We found the perfect venue: Manchester Central. It had the space needed and six hotels within a five-minute walk.
We managed the accommodation and travel needs of all delegates and speakers. Our excellent partner relationships meant we could offer discounted parking for delegates too. We built a simplified delegate management solution: creating a bespoke website, Events Hub, app linking to speaker information and interactive feed, as well as a dedicated email inbox to deal with the 500+ queries about the event.
We worked with one of our preferred suppliers, Universal Live, for the best-in-class audio visual (AV) technology.
To enhance their overall solution for future customers, Capita wanted to bring 500 Sales and Marketing colleagues together from across the group’s 98 business centres to talk about growth, disruptive technology, and collaboration with global colleagues and customers.
The feedback says it all: “You guys did an amazing job and the feedback has been incredible. Well done, you totally pulled it off. Huge congratulations, and thank you all.” - Antonia Wade, Chief Marketing Officer, Capita Plc.
We entertained delegates with the world-famous Jeremy Sassoon band and a host of world-class speakers:
• Paul Gurney (Becoming X)
• Vala Afshar (Salesforce)
• Gregorary Williams (Wired UK)
• Tracey Neville (England Netball)
• Mick Ebeling (Not Impossible Labs)
• David Meade
With sustainability at the top of our agenda, we donated to the City of Trees movement by planting a tree for every attendee instead of goodie bags. We also provided signage, exhibition stands and delegate badges.
The event ran seamlessly with thorough communication, HSE risk assessments and onsite support – even handling last-minute requests for wheelchair ramp access to the stage, which we turned around within 24-hours!
The event was everything that a company like Capita should be; professional, exciting and ambitious. And your app – love it! What impresses me, even more, is that you deliver this level of quality for our customers. This event was you creating better outcomes. You’ve got a great set of people!
