Approach

Avvio delivered a unique and uplifting event for 850 people, managing all delegate and event logistics, onsite registration, session structures, venue management and technical production. The event was held at the impressive 'Old Billingsgate' in central London with breathtaking views across Tower Bridge and The Shard.

The large open plan venue was split into two halves - one half was an impressive expo area that featured Reply's latest innovations along with some exciting interactive games, the other half was a large stage that was used for the main plenary and breakout sessions.

Due to the open plan layout of the venue and the challenge of audio bleeding between breakout sessions we used 'silent disco' headphones to create 'invisible rooms' between each other. The main stage was broken up into three breakouts and three other breakouts where positioned around the expo area.
