Microlise Transport Conference 2017

The Microlise Transport Conference is Europe’s largest transport conference with over 1,200 visitors from the industry. Nest Studios were appointed to design and manage the conference, exhibition and awards dinner which was held at Ricoh Arena, Coventry this year in May. The exhibition space incorporated high level branding highlighting each of the various zones, whilst the overall space included 21 double sided bespoke pods for exhibitor presence, 3 workshop setups, a press studio, demonstration areas as well as 3 large zones for gold sponsor spaces. The conference seated 1,200 attendees and featured a large stage, built backdrop for projected content to be displayed, as well as soft seating for speakers to conduct a Q&A session. After a successful event Nest have already started to discuss 2018 with Microlise….so watch this space. 

Spirit of Lifeplus 2016

For the third year running Lifeplus chose Nest Studios as it’s agency of choice to design and deliver this years flagship Spirit event at the Stuttgart Messe in Germany.

This years Spirit was to be the biggest and most inspiring LP event to date. It would require the hire of 3 halls at the Messe along with several open areas for registration and merchandising.

The project required a full design service, event branding, content creation and management of all construction. We also provided full event management which included liaising with the venue, all security, catering, hostess management, logistics, evening entertainment, stage management and management of the exhibition and evening events.

The main plenary session was designed to host 13000 associates, all seats had headsets giving visitors live access to 6 translation channels. The event was streamed live around the world via a camera and production crew and this year we introduced a live Skype link with other smaller events throughout Europe.

Look out for the full case study soon.

Lifeproof/Otterbox Roadshow

We recently delivered an easy to install and transport event solution for Lifeproof and Otterbox. Each install would follow high adrenaline and fun events around the world. The set-up was transported in bespoke crates and installed by the client.

Our design solution was to use bespoke inflatable structures that are quick to setup, with several interactive and colourful zones including selfie zones, chill out areas and colourful product displays.

The Spirit of Lifeplus 2014

Lifeplus is a company that specialises in the well being of your mind and body and promotes healthy living. More details can be found here http://www.lifeplus.com/uk-en/web-section/company

Our challenge was to design and project manage their largest ever 2 day experiential event at Messe Stuttgart, Germany in May 2014. This was not going to be like any other conference – this was to be a unique celebration for over 5000 people from 10 different countries.

The two day event consisted of:

Friday: A recognition awards gala for 1100 people. This included a three course meal with a 5 piece live band and a DJ until 1am.

Saturday: The main presentation, featuring 9 speakers and over 150 awards being given out on stage and was presented to an audience of over 5000 attendees from all over the world. 

Saturday evening was the event party which accommodated 2500 guests. Entertainment was a 9 piece live band and a DJ until 3am. There was also a cocktail lounge!

The event stretched across two halls and east side of the Messe. Nest organised simultaneous translations in 7 different languages via headsets to all of the delegates. We also introduced a new interactive exhibition area for the lunchtime break which consisted of everything from neck massages to yoga classes whilst also serving lunch to 2500 people.

There were 4 interactive zones promoting healthy living under the Lifeplus formula:

Zone 1 – Staying Active – Where visitors could take part in a yoga class, use exercise bikes and get top tips and facts on staying active.

Zone 2 – Eating Well – Which included a healthy smoothie bar, a live healthy cooking demonstration from a chef who gave out top tips and recipe cards on healthy eating.

Zone 3 – Nutritional Supplementation – here you could discover facts on supplementation and information via video screens.

Zone 4 – State of Mind – A space that gave delegates the opportunity to take part in meditation. Sitting in a specially designed egg chair with noise cancelling headphones playing meditation sounds allowed visitors to get away from the busy show for a moment. You could also opt for a neck and shoulder massage under the scent of relaxing aromatherapy oils.

Other zones included a Foundation area for the Lifeplus charity, a merchandising area where delegates could purchase lifeplus branded items and a ‘meet the experts’ area where experts gave presentations to delegates on how they found their success.

Nest designed and project managed the entire event and through our partners, delivered catering and production management including audio, video, lighting, rigging, logistics and delegate traffic management, security and photography to name just a few…

Finning CAT ‘Our Coldest Journey’ Art Gallery Event

Nest were tasked to turn CAT’s Visitor Centre in Desford into an art gallery event to welcome home their engineers from the Antarctica. 

Sir Ranulph Fiennes lead an expedition across the Antarctic along with two Finning engineers and two specially modified Caterpillar D6N track type tractors where they embarked on the first ever winter traverse of Antarctica – a challenge that has never been previously attempted.

Finning CAT wanted to host an event to welcome back the team, celebrate the successes of the journey and raise money for the ‘Seeing is Believeing’ charity by selling beautiful, photographic artwork taken on the journey.

It was our task to take a simple space and convert it with the use of lighting, structure and sound into an expreiential and educative environment. The delegates were led through a focused journey which followed the expeditions many twists and turns. There was also a stage area where Sir Ranulph Fiennes and the team could welcome guests and talk of their experiences and how the CAT machines played a key role in the journey.

The result exceeded everyones expectations… this was how it looked.
