Sibos has been a key event in our year for as long as we can remember. With Virtual Sibos opening today we thought we’d look back at the real thing from 2019.

Supporting the cause

Between our virtual event work and interior projects Nest found time to support a local medical company. Breas have been working hard to produce ventilators in response to the pandemic and needed new storage solutions… we were more than happy to help.

Virtual doesn’t need to be zzzzz

Ok, so we’re all missing the handshakes and the experience that live events provide.

But who said that virtual is experience-less? A cocktail masterclass certainly spiced things up at our most recent virtual production.

Looking back at Dmexco and MWC

Lockdown measures around Europe are slowly easing this week. With this and the news that Germany are reclassifying trade shows as organised events rather than mass gatherings, could there be a distant light at the end of the tunnel for physical events?

The organisers and exhibitors of Dmexco – the worlds largest digital marketing show, will certainly be pleased to see things moving in the right direction. And of course, so are we.

It’s a show that Nest have been working at for many years having had success at MWC in Barcelona.

Here’s a snapshot of some of our work:

Hired architecture that is more than just a system

As much as we love delivering custom structures to our global clients we also realise that some client’s budgets require a more cost efficient approach.

The idea of a hired system solution is often a dirty word, bringing to mind ugly aluminium poles and beams leaving very little space for creativity. But that doesn’t always have to be the case.

Nest invested into the Aluvision system some 6 years ago because of its flexibility, low environmental impact and ease of install. The system also benefits from not looking like a system… no framework is visible and this means that the impact can come from graphic content, the introduction of light boxes and AV.

Costs can be kept really low due to the portable nature of the structure which reduces the transport and install costs. Its modularity means that we can provide solutions for any orientation, including within shell scheme walls.

If you’re interested in looking at an impactful, cost effective booth solution then please give us a call. 

Handshakes to Headsets

Like many other sectors, this is clearly a troubling time for the events industry with so much of the future unknown.

However, as events professionals, we’re a resilient bunch. We’re working hard to pivot our skills and are currently helping many of our clients to connect with their market via virtual event experiences.

This concept doesn’t replace the experiential, tangible impact of a real life exhibition but it does allow our clients to drive their content, continue communications and ultimately drive pipeline for the interim.

Having said that, online events don’t have to be stand alone, they can also work in tandem with live events creating hybrid experience providing longevity post show and help improve your carbon footprint associated with the event.

Infosecurity Europe 2017

Infosecurity Europe 2017 (otherwise known as Infosec), took place at Olympia London on 6th-8th June this year in the height of the busy exhibition season. Nest worked closely with existing clients to design, build and manage the delivery of their exhibition spaces at the event. Returning and building upon relationships with Egress, Algosec and Akamai.

Akamai took to the origins of their Hawaiian company name and used this theme to inspire the use of a cocktail bar and jet ski game to attract the passers by. While Egress and Algosec made use of demos, presentations, giveaways and games with competitions to portray their offerings and get visitors interacting. 

The event features around 360 exhibitors and attracts approximately 13,000 visitors, who get the opportunity to experience a schedule of conference sessions and visit companies face-to-face who offer the latest services and products in the information security industry. Take a look at the masterpieces which our clients called their base during this three day event…..
