ACC Liverpool has hosted Accelerate for a number of years. The client’s creative production brief was to create an innovative and colourful event, rich in video content and media. The AV was tendered and won by ACC Liverpool’s in-house production team who worked closely with organisers Liverpool Vision for six months in pre-production.
Hall 1 featured extensive high-definition video content that the production team installed. There was also a tight turnaround to build a gala dinner for 650 guests in Hall 2. The Auditorium and Hall 2 were fitted out with bespoke installations including a 12m by 4m screen which incorporated animation, video playback, live camera feeds and keynote presentations. All this content was projected to screen using Barco 20k projectors. As the dinner was an international launch, the content included links to pre-records by David Cameron and other high profile global speakers. The live VIP presenters were looked after by our freelance stage manager and directed by our show callers.
An innovative lighting design was developed for both the conference and dinner which consisted of stretched fabric 9m high columns, ceiling drapes, an array of LED lighting and GOBOs. The ceiling drapes gave a two tone finish to the dinner.
Bernice Law, Director at Liverpool Vision commented “We were really impressed with how the production team at ACC Liverpool understood our events and what we wanted to achieve.
The team worked with us to refine and enhance our ideas and showed us visuals of the event production. They came up with innovative ideas to create the ambience we were looking to achieve and executed it all perfectly. We knew we were in safe hands and really enjoyed working with everyone in the production team on what were two hugely successful events.”
