The stars have looked upon us and guided us “Stars make us imagine new adventures and new discoveries. They show us the way, protect us and make us brave. Event stars shine in the Elephant constellation, the same stars that have been able to turn dreams into reality”. (from “The stars look down”, by A. J. Cronin) Please forgive the poetic license. The text above, which I wrote, was proudly displayed in the beautiful location of the Hotel Barceló Renacimiento in Seville, which hosted the first edition of the EuBea Festival - The International Festival of Events and Live Communication, organized by ADC Group - on October 23rd and 24th. In reality, such message was more of a wish. Indeed, the challenge to the international events’ industry was very ambitious, one for which we might want to invoke the beneficial influences of the stars, and in particular those of the constellation of the Elephant, symbol of luck for both Bea and EuBea. Having the most authoritative representatives of both event agencies and investing companies to converge in the heart of Andalusia was no easy task. Just as it was not easy to involve twenty of the most esteemed speakers at an international level. Add, finally, moments of spectacular entertainment, which gave everyone the

opportunity to really appreciate the culture and the culinary tradition of Andalusia, as well as creating the ideal setting for important networking opportunities. To quote the famous novel by A. J. Cronin, the stars looked upon us and guided us. EuBea Festival was a success across the board: 400 delegates from 22 countries, a 60% increase of projects registered for the award, 20 internationally renowned speakers and a jury, led by Klaus Andreas Span (Executive CoE Product Management & Business Development - IBM Power Systems Emea), of 20 professionals belonging to the most prestigious companies across Europe. Such numbers speak for themselves. However, there is a formula behind these numbers: an ‘X Factor’ styled live presentation of all shortlisted events, expression of Europe’s finest creativity; interaction between speakers and audience; networking among delegates. Three features which, in turn, generated other events. In short, the EuBea Festival is an unmissable container of events, one of its kind on the international scene. This 4th edition of the European Event Annual, showcases all the projects that competed for the 2014 European Bea podium. Salvatore Sagone chairman ADC Group

Arcus Volvo Range Objective: to create positive word of mouth and promote Linie Aquavit as a round-the-year product connected with Nordic cuisine within the Nordic HoReCa sector and media. Creative idea and description: Norway has only few dishes that combine the two ´s most famous exports, seafood and aquavit. ‘Linie Award’, a food and drink competition was born to create new food traditions, and works as a springboard for young, talented chefs and bartenders in the Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Finland. The contest will promote interest in the Nordic region’s exotic food and drink culture as well as encourage young Nordic chefs and bartenders (>26) to create new and exciting gatronomic experiences by combining the two. Media Mix: due to the total ban on adv for alcoholic beverages in Norway, it was possible only communicate directly with key influencers in the HoReCa industry, and indirectly through press, in addition to a password protected internet site. Deserved media coverage was based around ‘Ones to watch’ (the chosen talent), as well as ingredient safaris with media and bloggers. The recipes are published in a book and distributed to food bloggers and journalists alike, along with a basket with the ingredients.

Audio/video/lights: a fabulous setting provided the surroundings, making the subtle inclusion of video screens with live presentations of the progress of each contestants, like a closed live tv-broadcast, the main audiovisual feature. Staging and set design: sophisticated, yet playful atmosphere. It was held at a seafront restaurant on Tjuvholmen, Oslos´ best location, with a breath-taking view and direct contact with the sea. The location and concept can be described as a ‘play with water’, as the ingredients are found in the sea only a short boat-trip away – as seen in the ingredient safari. And the main ingredient, the Linie Aquavit, gets its subtle flavours from a sea journey in barrels that cross Equator twice. Results: massive buzz around the young talents and the new food and drink recipes. Before, during and after the event there was direct, personal communication with more than 3,000 key persons in the HoReCa sector. The media value exceeded the investment by five times.

3Premiere Objective: to showcase Hutchison Drei Austria’s new brand after the merge with Orange. And to make clear that there is a new relevant player in the market and to ensure that all guests get to feel and experience the new born brand at first hand. Creative idea and description: the idea of this event was to find an inimitable event-location that is suitable for the realisation of the launching of the new brand Drei. Soon it became clear that the only possibility to make a step towards uniqueness is to create and build a temporary launch setting which leaves no wishes unfilled. An edifice which was planned and constructed solely for the event from on the river bank of Vienna’s Danube River. At the beginning of the event, it seemed to be a normal launching of a new product. In the course of the evening the guests could experience the metamorphosis of the brand. From modest black and white the whole atmosphere changed into a brightly colourful, cheerful and stunning one, representing the new mission of the company – to make things a little bit different. Not only employees experienced their new/old occupationally home for the first time in all its facets, but also business partners and VIPs became acquainted with the mission of the newly united company. Media Mix: from billboards and a printing campaign in various newspapers and magazines, radio and tv commercials for the general brand message to refined printed invitations followed by a sophisticated online registration tool and a QR-Code based check-in solution with mobile devices were used. The pillars of the new brand were implemented in all media and communication activities.

Audio/video/lights: for the realisation of the event, a matchless combination of audio, video and lightning effects was implemented to make this night unforgettable. It was operated with high class equipment to achieve the best imaginable performance. Traditional video formats, like 16:9, were resigned. Instead, new ones were specially created to again, underline the claim of the brand. Staging and set design: the task was to create a location that combines uniqueness and desirability at hot summer days-fulfilling the amenity of an Open Air Location with all infrastructural features of an event-hall with about 2.000 sq.m. A location was built on a parking ground next to the River Danube. A platform with a height of 4 meters assured a sight over the bank slope. On the fundament a giant tent with a sun-deck for 1200 people was built. To ensure a splendid view the upstream wall was made of glass. Results: the product launch of the new brand Drei on the 19th of August 2013 was a complete success. It was intended to make the grand opening a cheerful and stunning one that was well received by the guests-and it was.

Miele, The Science of Perfection Objective: to transform audience perceptions of Miele via an immersive launch event designed to increase engagement and heighten awareness and excitement surrounding Miele’s new products—the W1 and T1. Miele tasked inVNT with creating an event intended to capture the imagination. Creative idea and description: Miele wanted to increase engagement, build desire and drive awareness and excitement around their new products prior to its official UK launch. inVNT developed a creative strategy based on the idea of the ‘Artistry of Innovation’ and set about designing a brand experience that would imbue Miele’s new washer and dryer with drama, warmth, humanity and a sense of limitless possibilities. The creative idea was to transport the audience from the mundane into a completely unexpected, eclectic and engaging multi-sensory experience. The strategy infused the T1 and W1 with a level of invention, creativity and humanity not typically associated with washing machines and dryers. The resulting fully immersive 2-day event for 600 captured the interest and imagination of a sophisticated audience of press, dealers and influencers by inviting them into a completely unique world that transformed perceptions and engaged senses in an unforgettable way. Media Mix: this extraordinary experience managed to be entertaining, informative and emotionally engaging. A magical Miele journey, featuring aerial artists, tap dancers, acrobats, and a finish with a W1 Washer and T1 dryer flying through the air, connecting attributes like innovation, creativity, durability, directly to the washer and dryer.

Audio/video/lights: as they enjoyed cocktails and caught glimpses of a mysterious performance behind diaphanous curtains, and they were instructed to put on noise-cancelling earphones, which played the narration and soundscape of everything that followed. These earphones enabled the group to move together through the immersive production while simultaneously experiencing an intimate connection with the material. Staging and set design: upon arrival at London’s versatile and unique Canary Wharf Winter Garden, guests encountered a wildly unconventional space inspired by the design of a washing machine drum. The audience proceeded through a series of experiential science labs and interactive real-life exhibits that corroborated the superiority of the W1 and T1 and emphasized Miele’s advanced technological capabilities. Results: 600 display units were ordered by the end of the launch. Press: The Telegraph, The Sunday Times and The Guardian, Event Magazine and C&IT Magazine, etc.

KIA City Dealer Convention 2014 Objective: the meeting should be a statement of the changing, successful and dynamic brand, with its new inspirations: such as its design, innovation, service or brand image. How can one let the dealers immerse in this experience of change? And how can one avoid the routine of an annual dealer meeting? Creative idea and description: first the slogan and motto – Yes, we are. A reference to Obama’s legendary phrase, yet clearly a motivating statement: We did it, we are the fourth largest auto manufacturer. Then the idea, to create a new, intensive form of presentation to make the ‘Next Level’ a livable experience. 500 participants, mostly KIA dealers from all over Germany are immersed in the specially created KIA City, first from the exterior, then inside thru the individual districts presenting individual topics right up to the evening’s party district. A more than 180° projection on white cubes took the guests on a discovery tour of KIA City. Over twenty different, partly animated and 3D panorama projections provided not only an ambience for the speakers/presentations, but were also medium. The KIA City was already introduced by the invitation. But suddenly from a familiar visual there is the vibrant city to be discovered that remains as a KIA City brand experience from the very beginning to the end. Audio/video/lights: the set became one with content by holistic projections. To gain a dynamic touch for the whole day and evening, the 3D-mapping changed constantly. It created atmosphere, brand experience, backdrops for statements, but was medium for content. Permanent changes were a challenge to the budget, but solved by a clever use and integration of animated slides

in the scenery. A special light dramaturgy had to be created not to harm the projection. An own music score was specially composed and arranged. Staging and set design: the KIA City was first realized in an abstract manner. A formal cube architecture surrounded the audience. At the beginning the projection was monochrome so that its 3D-structure was leveled. During the opening the architecture became vivid, by a choreography of all car models. Then the KIA City emerged. The following ‘discovery’ of its districts told the story, structured the event and created constantly changing sets. Results: stories, communications, media and architecture melted into a unique location experience of the brand. KIA City was suddenly not only a virtual moment, but became reality. The feedback of the guests was overwhelming. A high standard was set for the next meeting.

Medialaan Live On Stage Objective: to show to the clients and employees the upcoming tv programmes and series to be aired in the fall; to entertain everyone in such a way they are totally mesmerized and blown away, boosting creativity and strengthening the working relations. Creative idea and description: all invitees were welcomed and treated as Vips in a specially designed artist village of a musical festival awaiting the new tv season showdown taking live music as the heartbeat in a stunning magical visual experience. In a one hour show, video previews of new programs were viewed on a large holographic screen, musically driven by a live band integrated into the composition. In this way, the agency created a dynamic virtual stage by blending live performances, holographic performances, showlights, graphics and video. Not just a giant led backdrop or video projection with live artists in front of it. Instead the artists became part of the visual composition, magically appearing and disappearing into thin air by the use of lights and holographic techniques. The combination of all these audiovisual techniques resulted in the creation of a visual soundtrack of the fall 2014, live on stage. Media Mix: the public was invited by personalised special guest badge in a luxurious edition. Every guest received a special gift which was a vinyl album with a brochure containing photos of the new tv season. This booklet also contained a short pitch of every program designed like lyrics in an album. The event itself got the attention on social media, on tv news, in print and by word. Audio/video/lights: a giant seamless transparent foil

(20m x 8m) was used in a 45°angle to mirror an image of 20m x 5m projection screen lying on the ground to reappear virtually as an invisible screen on a 20m x 3m large stage standing in a 24 x 34m tv studio. A wide catwalk was placed to hide the real projection screen and let artists perform close to the public. A live band played the main soundtrack in sync with the video, surround audio and show light. Staging and set design: a clean stage with a live band and show lights. Only by use of the holographic screen all kinds of compositions appeared on stage. The starting point for every virtual set design originated from a rock concert stage in its most pure form: the triptych of a backdrop in the middle of the left and right speakers. Changing with every song of the live soundtrack, every new tv program was showed in its own virtual stage design. Results: reactions of excitement of the advertisers came in the range of “never seen a show like this before” over “I don’t need to go to the competing channels presentation anymore” to “tomorrow I’ll sign a three years contract”.

smart DJ - The world’s first turntable test drive Objective: to bring product benefits to the widest possible target audience in the most innovative manner possible, by developing an idea that shows the fun of the smart for two ed in an experience-oriented way to motivate the target audience to participate in nationwide test driven events. Creative idea and description: to show, that the old cliché ‘electric car = no fun’ is no longer true, the agency developed a spectacular live game: smart DJ, the first navigable turntable in the world. The game has simple and catchy mechanics. Simply take a seat in the smart ed and take a few laps on an oversized ‘record’. The smart car acts as the music needle and plays well-known songs from all musical directions. The faster you drive, the faster the music plays. The object is to adapt the speed so that you can identify the music and guess as many songs as possible. The competitor who has guessed the most songs at the end is the winner. A simple idea that not only triggers a friendly competitive spirit in the target audience, but also transports the driving fun, the agility and the noiseless comfort in a unique manner and with innovative technology. Media Mix: the agency worked together with Brainpool to place the module on German television during prime time on September 7th, 2013. In the live game show ‘Schlag den Raab’, Stefan Raab and his opponent raced in a competition. In only 16 min., the smart DJ was a sensational success, and this then spread in the internet. Audio/video/lights: a PA system made the songs audible in

the car for the driver but also for the audience. A camera with a bird’s eye perspective and an additional view from the car created unique impressions. The software used was also an innovative idea. An vehicle diagnostic system provides information about the speed and acceleration of the smart ed. The data is digitized and sent via Wifi to the game software. The software decodes the information and applies it to the music. Staging and set design: a truck with the smart DJ module system incl. 2 smart ed vehicles, branded banners, engineering equipment and a 16 mt large, circular ground plotter. Results: 16 min. of air time in live tv with 2.6 mln viewers (€1.4 mln earned media value) lead to a strong increase in attention and desire for the test drive events which resulted in a glittering response from participants and a significant increase test drives and effective sales.

The Heineken Ibiza Final Objective: to leverage Heineken’s UEFA Champions League sponsorship in a unique and spectacular way, and to become part of the online conversation in social media around the Champions League final. Creative idea and description: the UEFA Champions League Final – the closing of the UEFA Champions League season – and the opening of the Ibiza party season fall on the exact same day. It is this insight that provided proud sponsor Heineken with the unique opportunity to set up an event that celebrates both these occasions. The excitement of Champions League football and of Ibiza style partying, brought together for the first time. A combination unique to Heineken that was leveraged throughout the event program – a consumer experience featuring a mix of spectacular beach activities & entertainment, watching the Final on the big screen with an ocean backdrop, and experiencing Ibiza’s famous opening parties. And all of that with football celebrities in attendance and live streaming on social media channels. Media Mix: the event was pre-promoted in a through the line campaign in over 50 countries. Once the event kicked off, a live stream via social media channels was set up to showcase the excitement to a global audience. Here football celebrities reported live from the event and provided live match commentary during the Champions League Final. Journalists from key media outlets were invited to come along to Ibiza and report on the spectacle. Audio/video/lights: high resolution LED technology was used throughout the event to create the desired premium feel– from the ultra-thin 4x3 meter match

viewing screen, to fully LED DJ booths & bars. Similar requirements were met in terms of sound systems, where the complex event setup required advanced audio solutions. Specific wireless transmitters & receivers for instance allowed for people on the Floating Bar to dance to the same beat as people on the beach more than 100 meters away. Staging and set design: the uniqueness of the experience is key to the event’s success and custom-made sets and staging played an essential role here. The most prominent example of this is the world’s first Floating Star Bar. This star shaped Heineken bar was designed to float over the Mediterranean and provide our guests with a unique bar experience at open sea. While enjoying the tunes of the on-board DJ and the 360 show in the waters around them, waiters on flyboards were ready to serve as flying bartenders! Results: attending guests rated the experience with an average of: 9,5/10; social media impressions: 130 million; Share of voice on Twitter amongst UEFA Champions League sponsors: 75%; 70 articles generated with a cumulative total of 355 million monthly unique users.

Heineken Trophy Experience Objective: to bring to life Heineken’s UEFA Champions League sponsorship to reach and engage fans in key markets outside of Europe. Creative idea and description: as proud sponsor, it is Heineken’s goal to share the unique and memorable experiences of the UEFA Champions League with fans everywhere. But with matches only being played in Europe, it’s difficult for fans outside of Europe to get close to the excitement. What better way than to provide these fans around the globe with the opportunity to meet the prestigious Trophy in person. In a setup that captures the excitement of the Champions League – offering a taste of the show, the spectacle, the football celebrities, and the celebration. An interactive consumer experience that builds anticipation towards their once-in-a-lifetime moment with the Trophy. Brought to life through augmented reality technology. And with famous footballers helping to spread the word. Media Mix: the promotional campaign included a strong instore component to directly link to sales, a social media portal to recruit & select fans, and giant billboards that took over the host cities. Additionally, barter-deal collaborations with football broadcasters were set up to further drive exposure around the matches running up to the events. Journalists were hosted to drive coverage and attending football celebrities provided live updates on social media. Audio/video/lights: balanced mix of lights & fixtures – helping to create the desired premium feel, whilst providing an optimal environment for the functionality of the augmented reality technology.

Similarly, audio played a key role in the experience – as illustrated by the Players Tunnel: as fans walked through the tunnel, the sounds of cheering crowds and Champions League tunes would follow them, giving the feeling of actually entering a packed stadium on match night. Staging and set design: for the interactive fan experience a carefully designed setup was created to tour with the Trophy around the globe. Customizable to fit the dimensions in each host market, yet consistent in experience. With stories from football greats, collector’s items, and games. But the true power of the setup was only uncovered once fans took out their mobile phones. As through augmented reality technology the whole setup would suddenly come to life - with videos and 3D animations popping up everywhere! Results: 30,000 fans experienced the event; 200,000 new Heineken Facebook fans; Earned media value: €5,000,000; 250 journalists attended the events; 20 hours of national TV coverage.

TT Pavilion Objective: Design Miami/ visitors are a genuine target group of Audi. As design is one of the brand’s core values as well as one of the main decision drivers for purchasing an Audi, Audi acts as designer amongst designers. To address the audience properly Audi partners up with designers to have them interpret brand specific content in an artistic way. In 2014 Audi worked with Konstantin Grcic. Creative idea and description: Grcic, supported by his assistants Jan Heinzelmann and Sami Ayadi, conceived the TT Pavilion, a small polygonal ‘building’ in wood and aluminum which incorporates seven original TT hatchback doors as wing-like entrances. For Konstantin Grcic, the Audi TT is a car that you drive from the city out into the countryside. He wanted to respond to this experience with a small building that stands as a remote destination to such a drive. Conceptually, he was interested in applying the high technology used in automotive manufacturing to an architectural context. Cars can be regarded as very sophisticated industrially produced pieces of architecture. They not only provide a protective shelter but also are perfectly equipped functional spaces for working, communicating and relaxing. The concept draws upon Jean Prouvé’s prefabricated houses. The free-standing TT Pavilion is mounted on adjustable pylons, allowing it to be installed in even the most imponderable terrain. Media Mix: image film, invitation of press, bloggers. Audio/video/lights: Podcast covering the event, uploaded on social media for internal and public use.

Staging and set design: the set design was conceived as a minimalistic stage for the two exhibits: The car and the TT Pavilion. The two objects were positioned face to face at the center of a high gloss white floor with a silver curtain creating a 180° back drop. By focussing full attention on the exhibits as ‘works of art’, the set design assimilates within the highly sophisticated context of Design Miami/ fair, which is a global forum for galleries presenting museum-quality exhibitions of 20th & 21st century design. Results: worldwide broadcasting of the project. 64 media professionals from 24 markets, 64 articles. 8,4 mio contacts. Successful target group communication in auto press, design, lifestyle, tech media and websites. Highly positive media feedback concerning the cooperation Audi – KGID: “The TT Pavilion combines art, design and industry”.

Red City Objective: to prepare brand communication in the spirit of the campaign ‘Don´t be a maybe, be Marlboro’, in a form which was to be specific and natural to the target audience. Creative idea and description: the agency looked at what is the real world of a typical Marlboro brand product consumer, and decided to bring to the Bažant Pohoda Festival the Urban & Street. Through the activities that an average consumer can not normally experience, or does not have the courage to experience in his/her natural environment, the agency wanted to inspire and induce visitors to make the decision to experience something new directly at the Festival. With the use of architectural solutions, decorations and props, the agency created a single compact unit evoking the sense of a city with everything that belongs to it. All activities are built on the principles of decision making, in which the right decision brought with it a great, unknown experience.

Audi Opening Event CES Objective: the subject mobility is being newly defined. It is about more than just connecting people to places - the drivers of tomorrow are connected! Where and how does a car constructor show that he has understood the future and is prepared for the digital revolution of mobility? Creative idea and description: at the most renowned fair for consumer electronics worldwide the CES in Las Vegas! Eventually, Audi wins the application procedure for the opening event, takes the spot of digital giant Microsoft and has the unique opportunity to present its best technical innovations to a completely new target group, the multipliers of the ‘next generation’ as well as to the international specialized press. In order to make an impression in the rather atypical environment of CES and to create buzz among the target group of ‘geeks and nerds’ for these technical innovations, already the casting of the presenter was a special highlight. Kunal Nayyar, loved by the audience and face of the American sitcom ‘The Big Bang Theory’, hosted the opening event. Audi’s innovative features such as ‘piloted driving’, the ‘laserlight’ or the latest high-tech solutions of the ‘Open Automotive Alliance’ - a cooperation of leading companies in the field of internet and electronics - could be presented on stage. Media Mix: parallel to the event at CES, Audi launched a classic tv spot, test drives for demonstrational purposes were offered at the outdoor area of the fair. Driving events in Las Vegas and a press conference completed the live experience. The digital universe was served via Audi’s blog, Twitter hashtags and Facebook.

Audio/video/lights: the staging was directed according to the recurrent theme and was as innovative and technically sophisticated. Laser, light, sound and media – like for example a transparent multi-functional touchscreen – emphasized the already on their own very impressive innovations. Digital solutions became a live experience on stage and were seizable. Staging and set design: the idea for staging and also for the design of the exhibition stand (made by the agency ‘table 13’) follows the idea of ‘Secret Labs’. A conscious dematerialized place in the round rather hectic and overloaded fair spectacle Ces offers the perfect space to focus completely on the technical innovations. Results: the brand became a talking point among a new target group and in an atypical environment – Audi became part of the cloud! International press reactions exceeded all expectations!

Dancergy by Electric Ireland Objective: to devise an innovative consumer participation platform which would top successes of 2012, while enhancing the festival goers experience, deliver a strong sustainability message, leverage significant positive Pr while engaging with a new community via online influencers. Creative idea and description: the concept centred on the fact festival goers are at Electric Picnic to hear music, to dance and have fun. Our all-engaging festival Hubspot ‘Dancergy’ housed 76 energy generating Dance floor modules and one giant energy meter to record the power created by the festival goers. The work was done with a Uk Solar Company to provide solar arrays and generators which provided all the power requirements for the tent. The generated power was stored in seven large battery cells located at the back of the tent. The event itself was 100% sustainable. Mr. Motivator the guest Mc had a number of packed dance sessions each day which drew record numbers to Electric Ireland’s Tent. 5,000 branded Led Xylobands were handed out over three days. The festival goers were asked to tweet #dancergy to power the Xylobands during Mr Motivator performances. Social media opportunities both pre-activation and during the activation including a ‘Digital Dance-off’. Media Mix: a 360 degree integrated campaign was executed six weeks before the event and comprised of Pr (press photo call); Online Campaign Outdoor and National Press; Social Media campaign including a ‘Digital Dance-Off’. Audio/video/lights: a concert style Pa system

provided cutting edge surround sound within the festival tent. Lighting was low emission to keep within sustainability parameters. A Led starcloth roof lined the marquee and over-sized disco balls suspended from trussing enhanced the always-on party atmosphere. The energy generating dance-floor was internally lit and changed colour throughout dance sessions again enhancing the atmosphere. Live camera relayed individual dance-offs to large projection screens. Staging and set design: the main stage area resembled a large Dj platform with an oversized retro Getto Blaster as the centerpiece and a branded backdrop. Two oversized energy meters left and right of the main stage allowed festival goers to see how much energy they were generating while on the energy generating dance-floor. Results: Dancergy was referenced in national media the next day as the highlight of the festival. Social media results included an overall reach of 2.7 million. 112,409 YouTube views, Instagram competition 149,545 video votes, Facebook 5,357 ‘Talking About’. A staggering 11,550 visitors to the website.

PwC - ‘The Lead’ Objective: to build internal pride and culture, and to bring the over 1,400 employees in 36 offices in Norway together for the first time; to launch a new, collaborative intranet platform, Spark. Creative idea and description: the concept was based around the name ‘Ledetråden’. This can be translated as the clue, the lead or the guiding light. In Norwegian it literally means the guiding thread. The employees were given leads for 10 months before the event took place. No-one knew that they were flying to Stockholm and going to create their own award show, ‘The PwC Award’. And the main attraction of the show? The employees themselves! Sweden’s most renowned motivational speaker Manuel Knight contributed to a fantastic start to the weekend. The full weekend was packed with activities including team building at the Waxholm castle – both physically and mentally challenging. The culmination was the PwC Award with a three course gala dinner. During the weekend more than 40 buses and 8 boats were used for transportation and the lead up to the weekend lasted for almost a year. Media Mix: necessary information was released in the form of clues at scheduled times. The clues were released through available communication channels like email, and the new, collaborative intranet platform, Spark. A weekly film and stories helped the staff became more involved in Spark. The build up went on from November 2012 until October 2013. The aim was also to trigger curiosity and build expectations for the event. Audio/video/lights: the stage was a play with the

logo and profile color scheme of PwC. It had a three screen set-up with effects like co2 blasters and confetti cannons. The stage also shifted between the different numbers to accomodate the creativity of the employees performing. Staging and set design: in Norwegian the concept name literally means the guiding thread. This had both a conceptual, functional and visual function. It gave the clues a visual consistency and bound the event together. The clues were delivered via Spark, invitations, design elements and other visual channels. The strongest clues were bracelets that were made by the organization Joy. This not only embodied an emotional value but also served as a ticket. Results: internal communications were strengthened and the new collaborative intranet platform was successfully launched in an unforgettable and original concept that made the employees themselves stars.

Jeep® Dealers Meeting Objective: to motivate, communicate new strategies, present Jeep® range to 900 dealers and build a strong team spirit and a real global attitude. Creative idea and description: to bring a dealer convention for the first time into a stadium, in an unconventional location, taking inspiration from one of the Jeep® brand’s main characteristics: this is the creative team’s key idea. The agency decided to construct a theatrical ‘dark-room’, so guests don’t feel as if they are in the Juventus Stadium grandstand. At the climax of the event, the Led set design rises like a curtain, revealing the true location to dealers: the pitch with the complete Jeep® range lined up midfield, seven slots facing, like a football team. This surprising dramatic effect is a signal for guests to take the field. The final picture represents all the participants in the center of the Juventus Stadium whose main sponsor is Jeep®, a field where victories and dreams come true. The event title is Together, Play at the next level, an opportunity to feel the meaning of working Together for the same goals. Prior to the convention dealers had the chance, for the first time, to test the complete range. Audio/video/lights: the set design comprises a 25-meter Led video surface, 2 levels deep, to allow the vehicles to drive across the stage. Led screens created a customized setting for each vehicle, with high-impact video and speech support contributions, designed to be run on three screens simultaneously or separately. The audio system is connected to the stadium’s system, for sound continuity from inside the plenary to the football pitch, providing an immersive,

engaging sound experience. Staging and set design: in just three and a half days, a layered structure was built directly over the Juventus Stadium grandstand, 18 meters high and 25 meters wide, 250 sq.m with Led wings two levels deep, to allow vehicles to drive through. A 30-meter ramp on each side with 25° gradient allows vehicles access to the stage. Midfield, on the grass, a giant carpet bearing the Jeep® logo and the seven slots grill is a great context for product placement of the vehicles. Results: a unique experience, a truly motivational event full of values. Inspired speeches enriched by exciting video supports. An unexpected climax to build team spirit and reinforce the messages, designed to make them feel protagonists, ready to take the field to face the market challenges together.

Set in a New York club, the Music Box, the show begins with a spectacular signature theme, followed by nine live performances representing important stages in the history of pop music. The talent-show aspect of the event was represented by the fact that the public voted by text message for a winner, to whom a trophy was awarded. All of the performers were selected through a casting process presided over by a jury headed by the artistic director. During the two-hour long show, performances were interspersed with flash mobs, comic sketches and a high-impact off-competition musical number. The show ended with a complex, moving signature theme performance. Preparation took eight months of work, with four months of weekly rehearsals. Media Mix: the evening was recorded through multi-camera filming with the aim of creating a professional dvd to be distributed to participants.

Creative idea and description: 2013 edition was held in Oslo, Norway and was a tough year: early implementation of a global transformation plan, great market pressure and new senior leadership. The agency came up with the ‘+ Factor’ concept along with the tagline ‘Transform to Outperform’, to support this idea of all the individuals (Sales Rep) gathered and united towards a common goal. The event was a success and 2013 a great year for Boston Scientific. With these new conditions in mind, the agency developed the ‘Accelerate’ Concept in Monaco with 3 main purposes: 1 – To align the event overall message with the next step of the transformation plan: Keep the good pace, don’t hold back; 2 – To deliver a concept that will easily be personalised by each division (6 in total), while guaranteeing the coherence of the main idea overall; 3 – To give a nod to the destination: Monaco is known for its F1 Grand Prix, and in 2014 the Emea President arrived on stage driving a F2000 race car on the corporate opening plenary session. Media Mix: pre-event online teasing campaign:

emailing and video teasers online for a 3 steps teaser revealing the destination on a dedicated website; online secured platform for all project managers from BSCi (corporate and divisions) to download production documents, medias, branding items, etc.; video footage and live edit of the whole event for a display on the very last plenary session; various prints from brochure to giant coverage of the main venue (Forum Grimaldi).

Paving the way with our clients Objective: to present the 2014 strategy for the Sagres, Heineken, Luso, Desperados and Affligem brands in an extremely impressive manner and in such a way as to ensure that all those attending would feel a sense of involvement and commitment to the goals and strategy of each brand. Creative idea and description: for the 4th consecutive year, the Convento do Beato was the setting for the Central de Cervejas annual convention. Something totally out of the ordinary was needed to ensure the desired impact on the audience, so the venue was transformed into a fashion catwalk where the speakers were able to shine and truly put on a show for the audience. The dinner concept was ‘Dinner of the Brands’, and here each brand ‘sponsored’ a different kind of food appropriate to their characteristics and/or nationality (e.g. Sagres: Portuguese appetisers; Luso: sushi; Heineken: Dutch and festival food). After dinner, the guests returned to the meeting area for the Sales Excellence Gala, at which the best sales people of 2013 were awarded prizes. The event ended with a concert by one of Portugal’s best-known singers, Rui Veloso. Media Mix: the invitations were personalized, sent and managed through a digital platform. Every access card featured a unique code and these were entered into various prize draws, giving participants an opportunity to win great prizes such as tickets to Rock in Rio and the final of the Champions League, or even a trip to the 2014 World Cup. Audio/video/lights: designing the audio-visual project for this event was particularly challenging,

due in part to the setup itself and in part to the fact that the event consisted of three distinct parts in a single venue: the Brands Presentation, the Excellence Gala and the Concert. The equipment all had to be hung on a 25m central truss and programmed for the meeting and the concert, in accordance with Rui Veloso’s technical rider. Staging and set design: for the meeting area, two bleachers were set up providing seating for 600 pax and a projection scenario of about 500 sq.m was created, which included screening images on to the catwalk where the speakers gave their presentations. The setting for the buffet dinner featured various themed areas. Results: the combination of setting and programme was so effective that all 600 guests got to know each of the brands present and got a general overview of the strategy that each brand would be employing in 2014.

Creative idea and description: Audi staged the ‘Edge of Time’ event in a former power plant. 24 clocks symbolizing time zones simultaneously moved to 12:00: time stops and a secret model descends bathed in bright light. At dinner, a working 12x12m clock projection showed a new dimension in time. The opening of the Audi Bar brought guests back to real time in Berlin. Live acts, large-scale films about time and a diverse lighting concept complete the evening. Guests learned about four brand assets at Tempelhof Airport: Audi quattro, Audi ultra, Audi technologies and Audi Sport, and saw the showroom of the future. Dealers also enjoyed an Audi driving experience on the 15,000 sq.m apron. The strategic speeches were followed by the highlight – the secret product show called The Edge. Each chapter was assigned to a communication theme and explored in a film that accompanied the 17 vehicles showcased on a stage of rotating mirrored prisms. The mirrors opened and expanded the room, creating unique perspectives. Media Mix: a dynamic clock installation, oversized projections, lighting aligned with specific event themes and changes in pace allowed the guests to explore a new world and dimension at this evening event. The interplay of dynamic movement, film, lighting, laser and sound – multiplied by endless reflections given by the mirror prisms – revealed the special features of each model at the

product show. Guests had the chance to experience an entirely new kind of audiovisual performance. Audio/video/lights: high-speed films, some artistic, some technical in nature, were projected along the entire length of the room, creating specific moods together with changes in lighting and the impressive scope of the event location space. Five of the seven rotating mirror prisms included a 7x4 m LED panel behind spyglass. Rotations, lights and laser effects created new and unique dimensions. Staging and set design: a heavy-duty crane lowered a vehicle on a 50 sq.m platform into the Kraftwerk. 12 projectors show images on curtains over 1,200 sq.m. Guests dine at long tables, in a hall with 20 m-high ceilings. The product show and exhibition were set in 2 hangars. The stage with 7m high mirror prisms made the room seem endless. Another feature was the world’s largest rollable screen. Results: a survey among the guests yielded very positive results (marks 1.0-1.5). Partners and departments also provided great feedback to generate and implement learnings for future events.

The Relay of Sweden 2013 Objective: to get a healthier organization. In numbers, the goal was set to a 10% increase of employees perceiving good health, i e 190 of Atea’s 1,900 employees would go from sedentary to regular exercise. Creative idea and description: the solution to the health initiative, which was also the final objective, was to implement a relay throughout Sweden, through all of Atea’s 35 offices. Only with muscle power. 3,600 km from Luleå to Malmö in Sweden. 125 distances in 7 stages. Around the clock. This has never been done before. A Once in a Lifetime Project. To prepare for the relay virtual training camps were created. The employees were divided into groups of 15, with one group leader/group whose task was to support and inspire teammates to regular exercise. These groups were competing with each other in a set-up where each employee could report up to 120 minutes operating each day based on their circumstances. These training camps lasted for periods of eight weeks and was conducted three rounds before the actual relay and once afterwards. The Relay of Sweden 2013 got its own blue / yellow profile that goes hand in hand with Atea’s existing communication: ‘We’re building Sweden with IT’. Media mix: the site www.sverigestafetten.se was an important interactive platform where employees/participants were invited to create videos and pictures. An extremely powerful tool for Atea’s employer branding. Customers and partners joined and it became a unifying platform for even these audiences. Besides this there were live events and training camps, a customized app, social media, special made tv programs on national TV4 and pr.

Audio/video/lights: the relay was filmed and photographed to be posted on www.sverigestafetten.se and in social media. Since the relay was around the clock everybody wore headlights during the nights. As audio was concerned there were com radios to coordinate everything and a megaphone was used at every start and finish line. Staging and set design: every distance had branded stages on the start and finish lines as well as beach flags along the way. The common theme in all branding of the event were the colours of the Swedish flag. The reason for this is that Atea’s pay off is ‘the Swedish national team in IT-infrastructure’. There were six branded cars driving through Sweden during the two weeks of the relay. Everything was produced to be portable and easy to fold. Results: altogether 5,000 people were active in training camps, of which 1,900 employees, 1,000 customers and 2,000 partners. They recorded 290,000 training sessions and 16,3 million training hours. The objectives Good Perceived Health increased with 35% and Regular Physical Activity increased with 30%.

Creative idea and description: Nine Yards began by addressing the employees, making them a part of the concept and the event from day one, allowing them to speak their mind and state their expectations and dreams. It was of most importance to discover what would make the employees, Generation Y, soar and create communication and brand experiences that really moved the target audience. ‘We Are Giants’, far from the one-off celebration, is a truly interactive experience, an attitude and a team building game-changer. Employees were invited to vote for artists, take part in challenges and listen to especially composed theme songs. And everything was based on the Elgiganten values and the belief that ‘everything is possible’. 2,200 people were invited to a gigantic music festival with activities and concept rooms, all tailored to suit the needs of the employees. 20 musical acts contributed to making it a collective fiesta filled with friendship, fun and a sense of optimism and success. Media mix: a web site was created in order for the employees to follow the build-up. The site served as a hub for communication and sharing of music and videos. It was designed with a strong and unique logo and graphical design, all to strengthen the community feeling. Through a Facebook page the communication was about building the expectations. It was/is the place for the employees to connect to each other. There was a constant and active presence on Instagram, twitter and spotify.

Audio/video/lights: a rough and totally empty, old aircraft hangar worked as venue and the aim was to create the right settings. Five stages were build from scratch with high end scene technique. Sound and big live projections laser effects, pyrotechnics and specially designed light rigs were used in addition to lights. Staging and set design: the challenge was to find a natural flow between the different rooms, the five smaller stages and the main stage, in order to maintain a smooth, positive feeling for the 2,200 employees throughout the event. The festival took place both indoors and partly outdoors, and partitioned between activity areas, mingling areas and experience areas. Everything to convey a sense of belonging that invited them to meet new people within the company and get new impressions. Results: surveys show that 60% of the employees, after the event, feel more engaged with their work whereas 52 percent have a clearer view on how ‘everything is possible’ relate to them, personally. 2,200 Instagram posts, average score on Facebook was 4.9 and the official movie has close to 5,000 views.

Repsol Chemicals 2018 Objective: company directing committee report on Competitiveness up to 2018 with these three premises: Globalization, Differentiation and Efficiency. The event was intended to present the year 2018, a real and near future, to all employees through the script, videos and set design. Creative idea and description: the event employed one of the most representative symbols in chemistry, the molecular structure, turning it into a technological sculpture in order to explore the three premises of the event. This design was not of an actual chemical compound; rather it was an allegory of the company, a structure that represented a formula in the process of growth, and a union in which each piece was essential to for it to be sustained. The event was broadcast via streaming from Madrid to the various sites in Spain. The high percentage of streaming viewers led us to use a more visual format: the convention was to become a TV show where everything is seen through a screen, where the duration of each action should be varied and short.

Another function of the sculpture was to create a real 3D element that interacted with the screen and so the images would emerge towards the audience in a different way from the traditional. A new version of mapping. Audio/video/lights: hd tv mobile camera unit. 4 cameras. 1 travelling Led Software in molecular sculpture. Microphones and 5.1 sound Video Mapping projection system. 3 lumen projectors. Barco Folsom multiprojection system. Watch out system. Video Streaming and satellite outputs to headquarters. Audio and video signal for reception in 4 venues. Staging and set design: the only element onstage was the molecule whose atoms and their unions were built of plastic (part of Repsol’s chemical business) with internal Led video. This element interacted with the display screen. Results: the communication objectives were achieved. Employee satisfaction by creating an experience through innovation, storytelling and technology. Differentiation and efficiency by utilizing technology throughout the convention. Using the minimum number of elements in order to be environmentally friendly.

Diageo Together We Will Objective: to bring 2,000 employees together for the first time and unify them as one successful entity. Creative idea and description: the agency devised innovative ways of showcasing new products, new strategies and new internal programs. The venue had a number of logistical problems. A room to seat 2,000 people cabaret style & 20 breakout rooms was needed. After many floor plans the agency came up with a workable solution which allowed to create a stage set in the plenary room which was 100m wide & 8metres high. The agency knew that to capture attention from the time delegates entered the room in Barcelona and make them believe that this was bigger than any Diageo Conference they had been to, it had to have an epic opening sequence. An ‘Innovation & Reserve’ night which showcased new products and luxury ‘Reserve’ brands of Diageo was created. The innovation area was housed in 6x20m domes with a 10m circular Baileys bar as the centrepiece. On the second evening the agency hired Spanish Village, Poble Espanyol. Overnight a concert stage and lighting rig for a surprise performance by the Manic Street Preachers has been built. Media Mix: this was an invite only conference for commercial employees from Diageo so therefore there was no requirement for a media campaign to support the event. Audio/video/lights: the 100m set allowed us to create an epic opening sequence clearly visible for each delegate within the room. Working with our AV Technicians and animators the agency created 3D Projection mapping content across the entire set. The

animation consisted of each country appearing out the map of Europe with Diageo employees photos flying out from their country. This continued to build until all countries were shown and culminated in the entire 100metre set tiling into each delegates photo framed. Staging and set design: 100m Conference backdrop with full 3D Projection mapping. This was used for the ‘Wow’ opening sequence which reinforced the message that this event was something a Diageo employee will never have experienced before. To get away from the usual ‘death by powerpoint’ conferences the agency devised a presentation solution which was entirely visual with virtually no text during each presentation. It involved many hours with each presenter and the design studio but the end result was spectacular. Results: one year on and this event is still been used as a motivational tool by Diageo Western Europe. Footage from the Barcelona event will form a large part of their opening video for their F15 Conference in September 2014 reminding delegates of the friendships and commitments they made at the 2013 event.

Creative idea and description: the historical events are retraced in chronological order but also through the real-life experience of human stories. Divided in 4 acts, the show traces the occupation of Europe, the Longest Day, the long road to victory and finally the paths of peace and the European construction. The archive films are shown simultaneously on 3 giant screens, with the voice of the commentary in off, punctuated by extracts from memorable speeches.

A multidiffusion sound system is set up inside the grandstands to let the stage pure, a sound disposal to amplify sound effect. Staging and set design: only geometrical and instable forms, imitating more or less buried concrete blocks, stand out the landscape and suggest the Atlantic Wal. In the 1st plan, a stage of 45 m of diameter with a map centered on the map of Europe represents the theatre of operations. The whole device occupied 115,000 sq.m on the beach with 3 grandstands for 8,000 people. The stage itself was 12,000 sq.m.An international press center was 5,000 sq.m.

Emmaüs, 15 Anniversary th

Objective: to make this 15th celebration special; to create an event that engaged all employees and enforced the togetherness within the company. Creative idea and description: for this occasion, The Oval Office created an experience that was not only based on the core of the client’s business but was also executed in close collaboration with the client: the gigantic Emmaüs corn maze. A corn maze that symbolized the course of life: 60.000m² were people walked literally from the mother’s womb over the adolescence phase to the elderly phase of life. On a sunny day in April the maze was sown, together with the employees and patients of the Emmaüs facilities. This event created an instant wow-feeling. It generated excitement and was the kick-of for the communication campaign and the actual event later that year. In September the corn was fully grown and the maze was opened. Two weeks of festivities, live performances, animations, followed by a public opening. Media Mix: teaser campaign; pre-communication and communication referring to the event. A complimentary day was launched to create a ‘together feeling’. More than 200 compliments were send. A website was created 15jaaremmaus.be to raise awareness and was the registration and information tool for the event. A communication toolbox was created to help the 21 Emmaüs departments to make promotion. Audio/video/lights: because this event was in an agricultural environment and mostly during daytime, there was no need for special audio and

video equipment. The agency made sure that on the 10.000m² central event area it was possible to make announcements and play calm backgroud music when the mobile bands where not playing. Staging and set design: the concept of the event was a corn maze. This meant that the main attraction, the 60,000 sq.m corn maze, influenced the rest of the setting. In the 10,000 sq.m event area we used natural elements like straw bales as entry desks, real wooden branches for signalization and technical support. The catering stand where even decorated with corn. This all to make sure the event area wood blend in to the rural environment. Results: almost 6,000 people enjoyed this unique experience. The event created a togetherness amongst all employees. In addition the maze attracted a broad media coverage.

1813-2013: 200 years building San Sebastian Objective: to show the evolution of San Sebastian in the last 200 years in a lively and attractive manner, touching on its historical and cultural legacy, paying homage to the enterprising and fighting of its citizens. Creative idea and description: event, designed for the Town Hall, to celebrate the Bicentenary of the burning, sacking and reconstruction of the city during the Napoleonic Wars. The façade of the Town Hall was converted into a 700 sq.m screen to celebrate the splendor of the European Cultural Capital 2016. The staging combines light, music, images and special effects in 3D through the vanguard technology of mapping. The visual narrative is divided into three sequences. ‘Recalling’: a journey to the year 1813 that shows the tragic events which completely devastated the city; ‘Reconstructing’: the people of the town, united by civic spirit and hope, begin reconstructing San Sebastian; ‘Going forward’: people celebrate that San Sebastian is today a city overflowing with life and open to the world. Media Mix: press conference; conventional media (press, tv, radio) and online media (online newspapers, social networks, YouTube, etc.) were used to promote the event. Press: El Mundo, Diario Vasco, Noticias de Guipuzcua or Periodico Gara. Radio: Cadena Ser (Radio San Sebastian) and Tele Donostia. Audio/video/lights: such a spectacular staging made it necessary to use 8 Barco projectors of 22,000 lumens

each, an audiovisual production filmed at 4K resolution film, as well as 60,000 watts of sound. APD carried out a photometric study of the City Hall to be able to recreate to the millimeter and so that all of the images would perfectly coincide. With a duration of 10 minutes, the show was projected in 3 daily sessions. Staging and set design: 700 sq.m screen and a combination of light, music, special effects and images in 3D thanks to the mapping technique. Mapping is usually used over flat façades or those with few adornments and volumetry. However, through the use of warping technology, APD was able to multiply the realistic effect by projecting over the irregular stone surface. Results: 50,000 spectators watched the show during the four days. It was, moreover, a ‘neutral carbon’ event.

Since 1863, Bayer has been a company of inventors motivated by the idea of improving people’s lives through innovative, science-based products. This translates into 150 years of research for humanity: the invention of molecules with a global effect – not as an end unto themselves, but with a fundamental objective: ‘Science For A Better Life’. This simple principle of cause and effect - Bayer’s efforts and the resulting contribution the company makes to a better future were the focus of the staging, the dramatic arc, and the room design for the event. Media Mix: more than 60 invited press representatives from all media channels generated impressive international media resonance. Audio/video/lights: videos were telling the company’s 150-year story in 150 seconds, putting a face to the researchers or providing emotional explanations of the contributions that Bayer’s approach makes to society. The celebration culminated in an artistic presentation: a multimedia collage of the Bayer world that blended

media content with live performance and modern ballet, accompanied by the Bayer Anniversary Song performed by the Bayer Philharmonic Orchestra. Staging and set design: when guests arrived in the foyer the company’s 150 years of influence were already tangible on every possible level. In the minimalist setting, wall appliqués and elements from the Anniversary mobile exhibition gave guests a sense of the principle of action upon which Bayer’s mission is based. A blue carpet led guests into Hall 8. The room-in-room concept developed specifically for this celebration was dominated by a three-part, 360-degree media area, which enclosed the guests in a spiral. Results: more than 1,000 guests; 49 print articles with a total circulation of approximately 10,7 million; 18 online articles with an overall reach of approximately 466,9 million visits; 22 tv and radio reports with approximately 6 million viewers/listeners.

For this reason the event was identified with Barcelona, city where the event took place and where Lidl has always had its headquarters in Spain. On the other hand it was intended to collect the concepts of the new client philosophy around the Spanish origin of their fresh products. In this sense, the central creativity of the event was inspired by the mosaics of Gaudí, Spanish architect and maximum representative of the Catalan modernism.

In this convention 4 hours of 3D content designed by computer were issued. Ten cameras broadcasting

the event live for 14 hours and 4,000 photographs were taken by three photographers. Staging and set design: in the 3,500 sq.m hall, a huge mosaic was reproduced with images and texts, which served as a transit and rest area. In the exhibition area, a journey of 1,600 sq.m was designed throughout the history of the Lidl stores. The central area was a market of 8,000 sq.m and each one of the seven thematic pavilions that surrounded it were dedicated to a product range. The auditorium was converted into a virtual stage in 3D. In the gala dinner area, there was a stage of 225 sq.m with three projection screens. Results: the event won a substantial impact among the attendees. Both the messages and the new philosophy that the company wanted to convey with this event seeped between the participants.

The Heineken Ibiza Final Objective: to leverage Heineken’s UEFA Champions League sponsorship in a unique and spectacular way, and to become part of the online conversation in social media around the Champions League final. Creative idea and description: the UEFA Champions League Final – the closing of the UEFA Champions League season – and the opening of the Ibiza party season fall on the exact same day. It is this insight that provided proud sponsor Heineken with the unique opportunity to set up an event that celebrates both these occasions. The excitement of Champions League football and of Ibiza style partying, brought together for the first time. A combination unique to Heineken that was leveraged throughout the event program – a consumer experience featuring a mix of spectacular beach activities & entertainment, watching the Final on the big screen with an ocean backdrop, and experiencing Ibiza’s famous opening parties. And all of that with football celebrities in attendance and live streaming on social media channels. Media Mix: the event was pre-promoted in a through the line campaign in over 50 countries. Once the event kicked off, a live stream via social media channels was set up to showcase the excitement to a global audience. Here football celebrities reported live from the event and provided live match commentary during the Champions League Final. Journalists from key media outlets were invited to come along to Ibiza and report on the spectacle. Audio/video/lights: high resolution LED technology was used throughout the event to create the desired premium feel– from the ultra-thin 4x3 meter match

viewing screen, to fully LED DJ booths & bars. Similar requirements were met in terms of sound systems, where the complex event setup required advanced audio solutions. Specific wireless transmitters & receivers for instance allowed for people on the Floating Bar to dance to the same beat as people on the beach more than 100 meters away. Staging and set design: the uniqueness of the experience is key to the event’s success and custom-made sets and staging played an essential role here. The most prominent example of this is the world’s first Floating Star Bar. This star shaped Heineken bar was designed to float over the Mediterranean and provide our guests with a unique bar experience at open sea. While enjoying the tunes of the on-board DJ and the 360 show in the waters around them, waiters on flyboards were ready to serve as flying bartenders! Results: attending guests rated the experience with an average of: 9,5/10; social media impressions: 130 million; Share of voice on Twitter amongst UEFA Champions League sponsors: 75%; 70 articles generated with a cumulative total of 355 million monthly unique users.

Famab Adam and Eva Award 2013 Objective: in addition to facing the judgment of other agencies and many company representatives, the challenge lies in using dramaturgy, staging and logistics to set new impulses, exclusively funded by sponsorship. Creative idea and description: ‘Welcome to Flourishing Landscapes’, a tongue-in-cheek reference to Helmut Kohl’s quote, taking account of the fact that the award ceremony, for the first time in its history, is held in East Germany. An energetic show that brings the spirit of Las Vegas to Saxony, with colorful action and a playful attitude, the event is designed to prove that the exhibition and event industry can produce wonderful blossoms, lush, colorful meadows and gorgeous fruit, but above all the gold, silver and bronze apples that are awarded as prizes during the evening in the glass hall of the Leipzig Fair. The visual highlight of the room design is the impressive stage set, which slowly opens during the evening with colorful projections not unlike the petals of a blossoming flower. From a nominee lounge specially set up for the occasion, the winners are led down to the stage on a real show staircase. This is just one of the landmark format innovations of this event. Media Mix: intense advance campaign (four months). A well-known presenter acts as a ‘roving reporter’ on the YouTube channel, the website, Facebook and Twitter. Tweets and ‘likes’ are reaching record levels. A lottery, intensive PR and associated work provide detailed information. The event was broadcasted by live stream. Audio/video/lights: the stage set in the form of a slowly

opening, stylized blossom is recorded with lavish media production. The highly dynamic entertainment between the honors is set to a lighting design reminiscent of the great Vegas shows. All this breathes new life into the format of awards ceremonies. A special technical challenge has always been the sound system in the glass hall, which is solved very well by means of a specially calibrated system. Staging and set design: four areas: 1 - Welcome/exhibition of submitted projects and presentation of 80 sponsors (record!); 2 - Grandstand and stage for award ceremony and show; 3 - Nominee lounges on the balcony; 4 - After-show party area, designed as a park plaza Results: the professional audience is thrilled by the consistently taut script and breathtaking pace of process and particularly expresses pleasure that the award ceremony, despite 37 trophies to be handed out and various show acts, is kept under two hours – without sacrificing appreciation for the winners.

The agency symbolized the viewers by a giant illuminated puppet family in their living room, guiding our public using key elements of tv; music, light, special effects, live entertainment & video. A flashback of iconic Vtm-moments popped up on a water screen enforced by effects of fireworks and water fountains to create a shared emotion. A roller coaster of special effects proceeded to flow over in a poetic choreo with 250 dancers, that responded to our call to participate in the show, all dressed up with light wristbands and building up towards a magical climax: a Vtm star performing Coldplay’s ‘A Sky Full of Stars’ accompanied by two youngsters of The Voice Kids. Media Mix: an integrated multimedia campaign was used to announce the event, based on: Tv & radio commercial, print & online, social media. Audio/video/lights: a special show soundtrack was made as backbone for the show, including the sonic identity of Vtm. For Video, a compilation was created with the most iconic moments of Vtm, projected on a water screen in the sea. In the

scenery of the sea, light platforms were placed & 40 colored water fountains. An existing 500m-pier was transformed into a platform of pyro, laser and light effects. 1,000 individually controlled light jars were put on the beach just like 250 dancers wearing controlled wristbands. Staging and set design: a very natural authentic setting at the sea was chosen due to the magical kind of show. The beach (300x100m) was used as a natural public tribune (dunes) and as stage. A sand sculptured living room was put in front of the waterline. Unesco shrimpers on horse back brought in the stage for the live moment. The pier and the sea created the panoramic scenery to emphasize the look towards the future. Results: the event gathered more than 20,000 people, receiving our ‘thank you’ together. They became great Vtm ambassadors, sharing their unique & magical experience in all possible ways: large national media coverage, social media & online, talk of the town,…

World ATM Congress 2014 Objective: the creation of this congress responds to the needs of having a better networking and business atmosphere for the Air Traffic Control world. Consolidating Madrid as a new destination, and introducing dynamic items in both congress and exhibition, it is now the reference event for the ATM industry. Creative idea and description: a unique platform for discussing the future of air traffic management. It brings together the world’s foremost aviation leaders to share insights, views, and expertise on priority issues and challenges facing industry. All sectors of the air traffic community were present conducting real business and commercial and strategic discussions. Students from local universities supported the conference and made their own presentations - sharing a new generation’s perspectives on the industry. Media Mix: aesthetically pleasing graphics, strategic partnerships with aviation media outlets, and a globally reaching social media plan. During the event, companies and individuals interacted with the Watmc Twitter handle 407 times and the Watmc Linkedin account created an even larger online conversation. Eye-catching time-lapse videos of the Exhibition integrated with photo recaps were produced daily. ‘Watmc Now’, the event’s official newspaper, offered real-time news. Audio/video/lights: the auditorium hall was too big for the expected audience (1,000 seats for 400 delegates), but the agency needed to keep the big stage and not cut the room in two. So a system of flexible screens hanging from the ceiling and creating a tunnel effect

was designed, leaving the seats in the middle. Over these screens, a high definition projection of aviation and nature videos. In front of the back rows a backlit sky panel was installed, making the room cozier. Staging and set design: the stage featured a giant screen covering most of the back, where the sky backdrop, that was also projected over the side and back screens, was present too. In this screen, several windows opened to follow speakers or for presentations. It was a very dynamic use of the screen, as it could change all the time from just one to various windows at the same time. A modern tv set style area was organized for the speakers, so it looked more interactive with the audience. Also columns of led lights to decor. Results: 6,200 participants from more than 100 countries, 1,200 more than the first edition. Aisles were filled with 200 exhibiting companies, the exhibition increased in a 20% (21,000 sq.m) .

InvestmentAktuell 2014 Amazingly simple. Simply amazing Objective: each year, the management boards of the important partner banks are invited to a professional conference featuring top-class presenters, followed by a gala event. Creative idea and description: with the new campaign ‘Investing Money Explained’, Union Investment (UI) promises to explain the complex connections in the investment industry simply and comprehensibly. Insglück developed the slogan ‘Amazingly simple. Simply amazing’, thus bridging the gap between the campaign and live communication. Top presenters present complex connections ‘amazingly simply’. After staging the location for last year’s event with spectacular technology and media, the goal was now to lend a completely different face to the familiar space while staying true to the motto ‘Simply amazing’. A courageous break with the guests’ expectations, a strict renunciation of the digital, a return to old presentation methods – with artists who reinterpret the fundamental presentation formats and an enormous stage backdrop made of cardboard providing space for analogue projections. Media Mix: the artists, who lead through the entire evening, don’t merely interact with the wall but also play with it, gradually revealing spectacular analogue effects. In a fascinating way, it becomes clear how ‘amazingly’ simple presentation forms can be interpreted and one is able to see what kind of prose these presentation forms can give birth to. It is thus that InvestmentAktuell utilizes the message of the communication campaign in a surprising and unique way. Audio/video/lights: references to theater, movie myths and

coded gestures evoke images from pop culture that enable a spectacular cosmos, hinting at something far beyond the events on the stage, to unfold before the eyes of the audience. Staging and set design: the wall becomes the starting point for a fascinating storyline. The basicness of the presentation makes a captivating contrast to the complexity of the narrative levels. Chronicling the ancient foundations of the theater, music, acrobatics, pantomime and shadow play are staged in surprising new ways. New levels are revealed, the wall is broken, transparent surfaces arise and pop-ups transform the wall into a backdrop. Results: when surveyed, the guests judged the event to be outstanding. Hans Joachim Reinke, chairman of UI: “We were especially impressed with how perfectly insglück was able to make the message of our new communications campaign tangible at this event!”

Opening Mauritshuis Objective: the Mauritshuis re-opened after a two year-renovation. This opening was the celebration of both the collection, headed by the famous Girl with a pearl earring, returning home after a worldtour, the opening of the new building and the renovation of the citypalace. Creative idea and description: ‘Our Girl is back home!’, this storyline was combined with the opening of the gates (a key element in the briefing as part of the rebranding). While the crowds were queuing outside the museum, the Vips arrived via the red carpet. Bandoneons played and bell-boys did the last preps for the arrival of the king. Once arrived a movie depicting the world tour of the Girl started on a huge screen. Then the painting (in a art handling box) arrived on the premises, escorted by the Royal horseguards and drums. When opened the box the girl was alive. After a crane lifted her from ground to the rooftop, she crossed a rope in between the old citypalace and the new Royal Dutch Shell wing. The movie took over and showed the audience the journey in the museum (highlighting all the new spaces). The movie stopped when the Girl stepped out of the Royal entrance of the museum to hand over the key of the closed gates to the king. On a live version of Music to the Royal Fireworks the King entered the museum. Media Mix: the Mauritshuis had a media campaign about the Girl with the Pearl Earring and the fact that she would return home. There was a commercial and advertisements to announce the re-opening. On social media people could ‘win’ their home with the

original, which meant that they were asked to send a picture with their own girl in their homes. Since a lot of people have a reproduction at home. The Mauritshuis created their own star to attract the audience and Xsaga created and produced her home-coming. Audio/video/lights: for the production of the two movies was asked a famous Dutch director, Pieter Kramer. He showed the journey of the girl from her own perspective by using a fish-eye lense on a steady-cam. Staging and set design: the aim was to link the old and the new building. Therefore was presented the idea to have ‘the Girl with a pearl earring’ connecting the old and new building by walking on a rope between them. She literally connected both buildings. Results: national and international newspapers wrote about it, the news on tv, online. ‘The old museum’ welcomed approx 5,000 visitors a week. After the re-opening there were already 100,000 visitors in one month. Approx 5 times more. It is also a big marketing trigger for the Hague.

Famab Adam and Eva Award 2013 Objective: in addition to facing the judgment of other agencies and many company representatives, the challenge lies in using dramaturgy, staging and logistics to set new impulses, exclusively funded by sponsorship. Creative idea and description: ‘Welcome to Flourishing Landscapes’, a tongue-in-cheek reference to Helmut Kohl’s quote, taking account of the fact that the award ceremony, for the first time in its history, is held in East Germany. An energetic show that brings the spirit of Las Vegas to Saxony, with colorful action and a playful attitude, the event is designed to prove that the exhibition and event industry can produce wonderful blossoms, lush, colorful meadows and gorgeous fruit, but above all the gold, silver and bronze apples that are awarded as prizes during the evening in the glass hall of the Leipzig Fair. The visual highlight of the room design is the impressive stage set, which slowly opens during the evening with colorful projections not unlike the petals of a blossoming flower. From a nominee lounge specially set up for the occasion, the winners are led down to the stage on a real show staircase. This is just one of the landmark format innovations of this event. Media Mix: intense advance campaign (four months). A well-known presenter acts as a ‘roving reporter’ on the YouTube channel, the website, Facebook and Twitter. Tweets and ‘likes’ are reaching record levels. A lottery, intensive PR and associated work provide detailed information. The event was broadcasted by live stream. Audio/video/lights: the stage set in the form of a slowly

opening, stylized blossom is recorded with lavish media production. The highly dynamic entertainment between the honors is set to a lighting design reminiscent of the great Vegas shows.

Staging and set design: four areas: 1- Welcome/exhibition of submitted projects and presentation of 80 sponsors (record!); 2 - Grandstand and stage for award ceremony and show; 3 - Nominee lounges on the balcony; 4 - After-show party area, designed as a park plaza.

The New Volvo Truck Range Objective: developed in Sweden and executed in Asia, the launch of 3 new trucks - FH, FM and FMX - was the biggest truck launch for Volvo Group in Asia ever. It had to be flexible and adaptable to the three target groups: customers, journalists and sales representatives. And it had to blow people’s minds. Creative idea and description: the successful Swedish-heritage concept that helped promote the biggest launch for Volvo Trucks in Europe was here adapted for Asia to give the same impact, tone of voice and brand experience. An all-Swedish crew worked across time zones with the client in Singapore and the local support in Korea. The planning, done remotely, included the set-up of the spectacular Volvo dome – the largest of its kind in the world - as well as extensive preparations for the presenters. Adding to the challenge was the need to ensure that the concept would work for 3 target groups. The two-week event was carried out in the Seoul metropolitan area. The event kicked off with a press conference at Walkerhill, a premium location for the Volvo dome. The same night, customers enjoyed a welcome dinner, entertainment and a product-reveal. On day two, the sales crew and customers took part in seminars and test-drove the new trucks. Journalists were given the same opportunities on their own dedicated press day. Media Mix: to keep interest high, the agency used a carefully planned mix of both digital and analogue media: films, theory sessions, interactive quizzes and knowledge games, physical puzzles, multi-touch scre-

ens, i-Pads, various test-tracks to drive on, walkarounds, workshops in teams and driving simulators. Audio/video/lights: at the welcome dinner, the trucks were revealed in a show using spectacular animations and dynamic lighting, all synchronized with custom-made dance performances and specially written soundtracks, one per truck. Staging and set design: one of the main goals was to make the information easy for the participants to grasp. The agency accomplished this by staging the trucks separately, using various relevant contexts to differentiate the communication and thus make it more tangible. Results: the event exceeded all expectations, sparked sales interest amongst customers, and received intense media coverage with a total ad value of almost 4.5 million euro. In all, 1,160 customers and 200 journalists from all over Asia, as well as 240 sales representatives attended.

Bringing You The World Objective: since the 1920’s Maersk Line has stood for reliability, timely diligence and efficiency. However, the company had become less relevant to the danes. Maersk Line was instead gaining a reputation for being closed-off and autonomous. Would it be possible to create an event that could change this? Creative idea and description: could it be possible to use Maersk Line’s ownership of the world’s largest ship to bring the Danes closer to the company again? Sailing the ship into Copenhagen harbour would provide media exposure and allow the public to experience the ship and the company first hand. The event would allow Maersk Line to tell a story that had never been told before: the story of the container and its impact on the globalization of our world. PS created a 12.000m2 pop-up exhibition named ‘Bringing you the world’. The title alluded to the ship’s capacity for cargo to all parts of the world and the ability to bring the world closer through trade. The exhibition travelled the world and changed the Danish perception of Maersk Line from reserved and distant to open and giving. Both internal and external stakeholders felt a sense of pride in what the company stood for, making the exhibition a success in terms of marketing, corporate responsibility and employer branding. Media Mix: tv commercials, outdoor ads, online banners, commute media and PR. For the exhibition itself PS created an event app, movies and social media walls to name just a few elements. Audio/video/lights: multimedia stations engaged visitors in everything from refrigerated containers to life on board. At a station, a miniature of the ship highlighted its ecofriendly attributes. A huge 180° screen allowed the

visitors to experience what it was like to work for Maersk. A cinema was built to prelaunch a Discovery program about the creation of the ship, and the guests were engaged through Ipad shipping games. Finally, social media walls were sampling and showcasing all activity. Staging and set design: the entire quay was transformed into a giant stage consisting of open shipping containers and other elements from the shipping industry – all in order to tell the story about the container and its impact on the globalization of our world. The exhibition opened with pomp and ceremony to the sound of a boys choir and Queen Mary releasing 18,000 Maersk-blue balloons – one for each container the world’s largest ship can carry. Results: 225,000 visitors; 50,000 people onboard the ship; 95.8% positive experience; 350 media clippings; over 10 spots on national tv; almost 5,000 downloads and more that 1,000 unique photos uploaded to Instagram; 77% more Danish FB fans; 127 % more global Twitter followers.

Bringing You The World Objective: since the 1920’s Maersk Line has stood for reliability, timely diligence and efficiency. However, the company had become less relevant to the danes. Maersk Line was instead gaining a reputation for being closed-off and autonomous. Would it be possible to create an event that could change this? Creative idea and description: could it be possible to use Maersk Line’s ownership of the world’s largest ship to bring the Danes closer to the company again? Sailing the ship into Copenhagen harbour would provide media exposure and allow the public to experience the ship and the company first hand. The event would allow Maersk Line to tell a story that had never been told before: the story of the container and its impact on the globalization of our world. PS created a 12.000m2 pop-up exhibition named ‘Bringing you the world’. The title alluded to the ship’s capacity for cargo to all parts of the world and the ability to bring the world closer through trade. The exhibition travelled the world and changed the Danish perception of Maersk Line from reserved and distant to open and giving. Both internal and external stakeholders felt a sense of pride in what the company stood for, making the exhibition a success in terms of marketing, corporate responsibility and employer branding. Media Mix: tv commercials, outdoor ads, online banners, commute media and PR. For the exhibition itself PS created an event app, movies and social media walls to name just a few elements. Audio/video/lights: multimedia stations engaged visitors in everything from refrigerated containers to life on board. At a station, a miniature of the ship highlighted its ecofriendly attributes. A huge 180° screen allowed the

visitors to experience what it was like to work for Maersk. A cinema was built to prelaunch a Discovery program about the creation of the ship, and the guests were engaged through Ipad shipping games. Finally, social media walls were sampling and showcasing all activity. Staging and set design: the entire quay was transformed into a giant stage consisting of open shipping containers and other elements from the shipping industry – all in order to tell the story about the container and its impact on the globalization of our world. The exhibition opened with pomp and ceremony to the sound of a boys choir and Queen Mary releasing 18,000 Maersk-blue balloons – one for each container the world’s largest ship can carry. Results: 225,000 visitors; 50,000 people onboard the ship; 95.8% positive experience; 350 media clippings; over 10 spots on national tv; almost 5,000 downloads and more that 1,000 unique photos uploaded to Instagram; 77% more Danish FB fans; 127 % more global Twitter followers.

Macan Factory Inauguration Objective: the shared story of Porsche and the city of Leipzig began in 1998 with the production of the ‘Cayenne’. How can you stage the inauguration of a factory that plays such an important role for a company and a whole region and motivate journalists to report on the start of the Macans’s production? Creative idea and description: Saxony is historically known as a state of innovation and with three patented inventions per day Saxon scientists live up to that reputation to this day. At Porsche, formerly one of the biggest family-owned German enterprises, the employees still enjoy a special standing. Therefore the solution almost came with the challenging task at hand - the region’s people and the employees themselves had to be the foundation of the opening show in order to continue the shared success story of Porsche and Saxony. As a result, the factory inauguration was indeed an event that could happen like this only in Leipzig and only with these protagonists – tailor made for this one historical moment: The start-up of the assembly line at the new premises. The factory became the stage and representatives of creative institutions in Leipzig, other stakeholders and the employees were the actual ‘stars’. Media Mix: all the different medias at the inauguration had in common that they were directly connected with the region: Some ‘pros’ like the presenter, the actors, a famous children’s choir and the costume designer. The absolute distinctiveness was created by the Porsche employees themselves. 30 among them were casted, then coached and became eventually the stars on stage. Audio/video/lights: the classic attributes of an intimate play as a ‘fine and significant’ art form, characterized

by craftsmanship and focus on content, became the directive for the production. The recurrent theme of region and people/employees at the centre of attention was consequently applied throughout the whole event. So not ‘bigger, better, faster’ but the ‘love for detail’ became the core idea in all use of the different technical productions. Staging and set design: the factory became the stage and representatives of creative institutions in Leipzig, other stakeholders and the employees were the actual ‘stars’. So of course the event took place in a tent directly in front of the Macan Production hall with a live-connection directly into the factory. The set design was orientated on the Porsche design and the set up between the different scenes was rebuilt by Porsche employees integrated in the show. Results: the fact that all planned goals were achieved is illustrated by the general feedback and the 54 top articles in the first 24 hours!

Socks for life by EFCNI Objective: to create a lot of attention and high recognition for the handover of signatures from an online petition in the heart of the EU, in Brussels; to reach the representatives with the demands for adjusting the medical and social standard. Creative idea and description: the idea was to initiate a live communication campaign that had an art project at its core. The first picture donated was from René Boll and served the basis for the campaign visual on all levels. Thus giving the project a distinct advantage from other public campaigns or lobbyist events. The extraordinary occasion for the exhibition opening even allowed the initiators to win the European Parliament as venue for it and thereby reaching the target group directly. At the same time as a curator spoke to artists directly, parents associations and other organizations throughout Europe were motivated to win over artists to participate. Finally more than 30 works from 16 different countries, among them Australia, China and South Korea were brought together in a specially designed exhibition system. Over 30 international artists participated: René Böll, Robert Wilson, Elfriede Jelinek, Ruprecht von Kaufmann, Ignacio Burgos and Roberto Cavalli. Media Mix: the core of the EFCNI campaign was the art exhibition and the opening event. The use of several different medias supported the main event. So a separate website campaign in 8 languages, socksforlife. org, provided pre-event publicity, information and tips for interested artists, European parent organizations and members of the public, especially those affected and medical professionals. Links with Facebook, twitter and

many national homepages achieved a communicative success in advance. Audio/video/lights: the core of the event was a vernissage with the art works in focus. The pieces themselves needed no special audio or video. Staging and set design: a special system was designed, for ‘hosting’ and protecting the heterogenous art works, but also creating a ‘frame’. It was build to suit the special needs at the European parliament, inclusive lighting, but also potential further vernissages. Meanwhile the sponsor Draeger hosted the exhibition and celebrated a vernissage at their plant in Luebeck. Results: the project highlight and communication target was the exhibition at the European Parliament. The presence and visits of many MEPs allowed for numerous in-depth discussions. The live communication campaign of Socks for Life by Efcni set a sympathetic note for better maternal and neonatal health.

a decrease in Organ Donor Card Holders by nearly 33% from 2010 to 2013. 11,000 people are still in need of a donor organ. The Life Time Clock was built to emphasize the urgency of organ donation and motivate people into becoming organ donor card holders. Creative idea and description: to change the lives of many the agency focused on the life of one: Kevin.

Traffic Light Kamasutra Objective: for decades, campaigns have been running, pointing to the dangers of Hiv/Aids. One reason that fewer people are interested in this is that they are often met with a moralizing wagging finger. Therefore, the objective was: to sensitize the target audience of the dangers of Hiv in an entertaining way. Creative idea and description: in so many things, many young people think about absolutely everything these days – just not about safe intercourse. Therefore, the Aids-Hilfe (Assistance) Hamburg wanted to take the opportunity to mark World Aids Day, to ensure special attention where it really counts: in the most famous entertainment district of the city! The agency spoke with the target audience precisely when it was most relevant and used for this an advertisement you just can’t miss: the Traffic Light Kamasutra (walk, don’t walk light). The agency installed it during the night of World Aids Day on the Reeperbahn addressing partygoers. The highlight: when the light is red, the little man on the traffic light gets a visit from his girlfriend. When it’s yellow, a condom lights up. And when it’s green, the two show their favorite sexual positions. Much to the delight of surprised passersby, people in green morph suits performed the positions live on the street. Media Mix: using the QR Code, the passersby could go directly to the campaign’s landing page with Facebook integration. Here, they were able to take a part in a vote for their favorite position or receive assistance from the Aids-Hilfe Hamburg as well as the Deutsche Aids-Hilfe (German Aids association). Next, the agency distributed the campaign clip, which was hugely shared. Audio/video/lights: the passersby were recorded

during the campaign with a hidden camera. For authentic implementation of this, audio and lights were omitted. So the agency could use the street setting realistically. The traffic lights conveyed our message. Staging and set design: one night, a van, four traffic lights, twelve Kamasutra templates, four condom vending machines, road markings, QR codes, condoms, postcards, four green morph suits, and of course plenty of mulled wine. Kamasutra Lights were installed in order to address as many night owls as possible. Through the selected positioning and temporary pavement markings, our staging of a real traffic light pedestrian crossing was very realistic. The passersby came, saw it and understood it immediately. Results: over 2,000 condoms taken, 3,500 Facebook Likes, and four times more counseling contacts than usual – making the Traffic Light the most successful campaign of this kind. Aids-Hilfe Hamburg received a huge amount of attention and made sure that people have fun while ‘safely’ having sex.

1813-2013: 200 years building San Sebastian Objective: to show the evolution of San Sebastian in the last 200 years in a lively and attractive manner, touching on its historical and cultural legacy, paying homage to the enterprising and fighting of its citizens. Creative idea and description: event, designed for the Town Hall, to celebrate the Bicentenary of the burning, sacking and reconstruction of the city during the Napoleonic Wars. The façade of the Town Hall was converted into a 700 sq.m screen to celebrate the splendor of the European Cultural Capital 2016. The staging combines light, music, images and special effects in 3D through the vanguard technology of mapping. The visual narrative is divided into three sequences. ‘Recalling’: a journey to the year 1813 that shows the tragic events which completely devastated the city; ‘Reconstructing’: the people of the town, united by civic spirit and hope, begin reconstructing San Sebastian; ‘Going forward’: people celebrate that San Sebastian is today a city overflowing with life and open to the world. Media Mix: press conference; conventional media (press, tv, radio) and online media (online newspapers, social networks, YouTube, etc.) were used to promote the event. Press: El Mundo, Diario Vasco, Noticias de Guipuzcua or Periodico Gara. Radio: Cadena Ser (Radio San Sebastian) and Tele Donostia. Audio/video/lights: such a spectacular staging made it necessary to use 8 Barco projectors of 22,000 lumens

each, an audiovisual production filmed at 4K resolution film, as well as 60,000 watts of sound. APD carried out a photometric study of the City Hall to be able to recreate to the millimeter and so that all of the images would perfectly coincide. With a duration of 10 minutes, the show was projected in 3 daily sessions. Staging and set design: 700 sq.m screen and a combination of light, music, special effects and images in 3D thanks to the mapping technique. Mapping is usually used over flat façades or those with few adornments and volumetry. However, through the use of warping technology, APD was able to multiply the realistic effect by projecting over the irregular stone surface. Results: 50,000 spectators watched the show during the four days. It was, moreover, a ‘neutral carbon’ event.

Heineken Trophy Experience Objective: to bring to life Heineken’s UEFA Champions League sponsorship to reach and engage fans in key markets outside of Europe. Creative idea and description: as proud sponsor, it is Heineken’s goal to share the unique and memorable experiences of the UEFA Champions League with fans everywhere. But with matches only being played in Europe, it’s difficult for fans outside of Europe to get close to the excitement. What better way than to provide these fans around the globe with the opportunity to meet the prestigious Trophy in person. In a setup that captures the excitement of the Champions League – offering a taste of the show, the spectacle, the football celebrities, and the celebration. An interactive consumer experience that builds anticipation towards their once-in-a-lifetime moment with the Trophy. Brought to life through augmented reality technology. And with famous footballers helping to spread the word. Media Mix: the promotional campaign included a strong instore component to directly link to sales, a social media portal to recruit & select fans, and giant billboards that took over the host cities. Additionally, barter-deal collaborations with football broadcasters were set up to further drive exposure around the matches running up to the events. Journalists were hosted to drive coverage and attending football celebrities provided live updates on social media. Audio/video/lights: balanced mix of lights & fixtures – helping to create the desired premium feel, whilst providing an optimal environment for the functionality of the augmented reality technology.

Similarly, audio played a key role in the experience – as illustrated by the Players Tunnel: as fans walked through the tunnel, the sounds of cheering crowds and Champions League tunes would follow them, giving the feeling of actually entering a packed stadium on match night. Staging and set design: for the interactive fan experience a carefully designed setup was created to tour with the Trophy around the globe. Customizable to fit the dimensions in each host market, yet consistent in experience. With stories from football greats, collector’s items, and games. But the true power of the setup was only uncovered once fans took out their mobile phones. As through augmented reality technology the whole setup would suddenly come to life - with videos and 3D animations popping up everywhere! Results: 30,000 fans experienced the event; 200,000 new Heineken Facebook fans; Earned media value: €5,000,000; 250 journalists attended the events; 20 hours of national TV coverage.

Hyundai Motor Deutschland National Promotion 2013 Objective: to promote the image of Hyundai in Germany, familiarising the guests with the Hyundai brand, its philosophy and the different vehicle models as well as establishing contact with potential vehicle customers and drawing attention to special campaigns. Creative idea and description: in 2013, the super election year, public interest in Germany was focussed on the forthcoming general elections and four state elections. Under the direction of Innocean Worldwide Europe, Mindact developed the idea to pick up this momentum and to put forward an additional candidate in the election with the Hyundai ‘polling station’. The motto and a wide variety of claims were consistently implemented in the communication media of exhibition stand, flyers, competition, social networks, Hyundai home page and vehicle decals. The motto ‘Germany votes! 5 worry-free years’ picks up the defining topic in a friendly way, integrates the brand’s 5-year warranty promise and uses the ‘voting options’ of customers for the content to be conveyed. The actual election programme includes statements on brand and product, e.g. ‘Yes to new possibilities!’, ‘Yes to Germany’. All ‘election promises’ conveyed exclusively positive messages, so that it was a matter of choosing between but deciding for one thing. Media Mix: the local dealers were involved in advance and provided with different information and adv materials on the regional daily newspapers, local radio, Hyundai website and Facebook. Audio/video/lights: full HD multitouch display where visitors

were able to inform themselves about the Hyundai brand, the vehicles, the involvement in motor sports as well as development and production in Europe. Current event information was displayed on different screens, as well as advertising of the local Hyundai dealers and product films for the different vehicles. Staging and set design: to reduce personnel and space costs, Mindact developed a highly flexible promotion stand with considerably shortened setup/dismantling times compared with conventional systems. The solution: A two-level promotion stand consisting of three individually converted overseas containers with a high long-distance impact and a wide range of modules with direct reference to the motto and the Hyundai brand. All of the 20 stops could thus be realised with a 3-man strong crew for setup/dismantling. Results: the national promotion 2013 easily exceeded the ambitious targets with over 40,000 contacts at the stand and 2,500 generated test drives.

vegetation. In addition and as a highlight of the evening, a movie specially produced for this event was projected on the external façade. Staging and set design: large scale backdrops and other branded elements were used throughout the event. Branding is a main part of an event such as this one. The Company’s logo must be well visible in all locations as this is one of the main advantages of being a sponsor in a major sporting event – publicity! In all main parts of the event from the Press Conference to the Gala Dinner, large backdrops were created for the different stages as well as Interview Backdrops and Press Walls for photo shoots.

The Heineken Ibiza Final Objective: to leverage Heineken’s UEFA Champions League sponsorship in a unique and spectacular way, and to become part of the online conversation in social media around the Champions League final. Creative idea and description: the UEFA Champions League Final – the closing of the UEFA Champions League season – and the opening of the Ibiza party season fall on the exact same day. It is this insight that provided proud sponsor Heineken with the unique opportunity to set up an event that celebrates both these occasions. The excitement of Champions League football and of Ibiza style partying, brought together for the first time. A combination unique to Heineken that was leveraged throughout the event program – a consumer experience featuring a mix of spectacular beach activities & entertainment, watching the Final on the big screen with an ocean backdrop, and experiencing Ibiza’s famous opening parties. And all of that with football celebrities in attendance and live streaming on social media channels. Media Mix: the event was pre-promoted in a through the line campaign in over 50 countries. Once the event kicked off, a live stream via social media channels was set up to showcase the excitement to a global audience. Here football celebrities reported live from the event and provided live match commentary during the Champions League Final. Journalists from key media outlets were invited to come along to Ibiza and report on the spectacle. Audio/video/lights: high resolution LED technology was used throughout the event to create the desired premium feel– from the ultra-thin 4x3 meter match

viewing screen, to fully LED DJ booths & bars. Similar requirements were met in terms of sound systems, where the complex event setup required advanced audio solutions. Specific wireless transmitters & receivers for instance allowed for people on the Floating Bar to dance to the same beat as people on the beach more than 100 meters away. Staging and set design: the uniqueness of the experience is key to the event’s success and custom-made sets and staging played an essential role here. The most prominent example of this is the world’s first Floating Star Bar. This star shaped Heineken bar was designed to float over the Mediterranean and provide our guests with a unique bar experience at open sea. While enjoying the tunes of the on-board DJ and the 360 show in the waters around them, waiters on flyboards were ready to serve as flying bartenders!

ING Day - Going for 2015! Objective: ING wanted to become Preferred Bank in 2015 and counted on their employees to adopt this strategic vision. Besides this objective, several values needed to be ‘experienced’ during this event. Creative idea and description: in order to reach this objective, a buy in of all ING employees was needed. d-side came up with the idea: ‘Going for 2015’ = not only the symbolic number 2015 as key objective, but a real challenge: walk or run all together 2015 km during a group building event for a good cause (Unicef) and set a real world record. In a prestigious stadium in the capital of Belgium. Moreover, the agency needed to make sure that people felt motivated to attend the event because 50% of the personnel is required to realize this challenge of 2015. At the same time, the agency wanted to avoid the feeling of a sport event in order to attract people. An entire program was elaborated to have a real ‘group building event’ with fine food, networking, concert, animation. The baseline ‘Your Step Makes The Difference’ put the emphasis on the fact that personal involvement and commitment was needed to take up this challenge. Media Mix: teaser videos were sent out via e-mail, where orange footsteps were shown on an ING HQ office. ING people were curious to find out who was behind this mystery. A relay stick with paper invitation that served as invitation and teaser at the same time, to make a reference to the challenge. Audio/video/lights: the Stadium was turned into an ING universe: orange. This thanks to lights, special effects, fireworks … Videos were made upfront to

broadcast during the event and to engage people even more for the challenge set. A live video captation was done. Staging and set design: the agency put one main stage very central in the stadium, where artists performed. Just opposite this stage, an extra screen and speaker desk, where the new ceo did his 1st speech ever to his people.

Just Do It Objective: to communicate the 2014 strategy to its staff in an clear and striking manner. With this in mind, an entirely different, out-of-the-box approach was taken for this year’s edition of the event and the theme chosen was ‘Just do It’. Creative idea and description: the entire event was planned and designed around the idea of ‘Just Do It’ which was hugely different from the usual format for this event. Before the event, as a teaser, every member of staff was given a helmet, and they were challenged, in small groups, to make videos showing examples of how things should and shouldn’t be done, to be screened and discussed on the day of the event. The presentations were screened on to the side of a truck and all the content was specifically formatted accordingly. The staff was divided into five groups and each group had to prepare an activation focusing on one of the Central de Cervejas brands (E.g. Sagres sales point; Luso beach bar; Desperados Party). The participants were provided only with the materials and tools and had to ‘build’ the various event spaces themselves. The action got underway when a truck arrived with the products (beer and water) that all the participating members of staff had to unload at the various spaces. Media Mix: invitations and information about the event were sent through the company’s internal communications channels. Audio/video/lights: the presentations were screened on to one of the trucks from the Central de Cervejas fleet and the contents were produced and developed for this unusual format. Additionally, works created

throughout the event and in real time by two graffiti artists were projected on to the walls of the LX Factory. The stage lighting completely transformed the venue; what was initially nothing more than a simple factory scenario was transformed into a fantastic space, replete with contrasting lights. Staging and set design: the event took place in an old warehouse belonging to LX Factory in Lisbon, a place where old printing presses have given way to creative industries. The truck and a wall of the LX Factory were used as the projection screens. The works created by the two graffiti artists were s creened in the event room. During the event, the participants themselves recreated the various brand spaces. Results: the ‘Just Do It’ message was transmitted clearly and was received by all the staff. It was a different kind of day that motivated the staff to meet the sales and strategic objectives set by the company.

On June 5th Dentsu Aegis Network, a leading agency group for communication and media consulting, celebrated the festival for its entire 750 German employees. The format reflects the change processes of the team. Without the usual speeches, workshops, but with a lot of communication and fun. An event that closely reflects the brand. With real camping, crazy happenings, humor and a strong involvement of everybody – in advance through the social network ‘Neon’, on stage with bands from their own ranks, side shows with homemade content and through documentation via the festival app. Media Mix: the new internal social network was used for festival information and daily news: 28,000 clicks indicated a measurably interest. Via mobile festival site, one could be kept abreast of in advance and post impressions/photos: Images, videos, texts (including 300 selfies with Mr. ‘Supergeil’) and on VA Day, 1,600 hits in

the app list. The agency values were integrated into the festival branding. The graffiti legend ‘Loomit’ visualized these values in a large, multi-segment image. Audio/video/lights: authentical stages and set ups (e.g. camp site) for a music festival with typical and untypical side attractions. Façade projections for interactive content. Staging and set design: the matching location in an industrial setting. With matching music and shows on several stages – far from the mainstream. With real camping instead of hotels, crazy happenings, lots of humor and a strong involvement of the employees – in advance through the social network ‘Neon’, on stage with bands from their own ranks, side shows with homemade content through façade projections and through documentation via the festival app. Results: the feedback was outrageous: real festival feeling - even with rain! Digital networking from the first instant and live meeting the new colleagues. Communicating content like values in a very playful but effective way.

[team building]

Orange Village Camp Pribylina Objective: to stimulate creativity, cooperation and helpfulness which are necessary prerequisites for functioning team work; to create an opportunity for colleagues in Orange from whole Slovakia to meet each other and share the experience. Creative idea and description: employees of Orange sales points are exposed to stress at work; therefore, when the agency received the request for an unconventional team building schedule, it was looking for a way to change this situation by bringing more humaneness, satisfaction and common experiences into corporate relationships. Simply, return to the original values. The agency decided to journey back in time and space into the era of our ancestors. This was a period, where every person depended on their own skills as well as on their

interaction with others. The event was aiming to stimulate employees to cooperation, creativity, and helpfulness, which are necessary prerequisites for functioning team work. Furthermore, it was an excellent opportunity for colleagues in Orange from whole Slovakia to meet each other and share the experience. Results: the event has achieved customer’s main objectives. The event stimulated creativity, cooperation and helpfulness through common experiences with unusual manual work. It has been proven beyond doubt that Orange employees pull on the same end of the rope.

Movicel Stand - Filda 2014 Objective: to launch the new 4G network, to product exhibition, to present new services and the brand activation of Generation M. Creative idea and description: to create a unique experience for its customers, Generation M constructed an exclusive area with lots of colour and movement, challenging the public to ‘mandar karga’ (the name of the communication campaign) in music, in sport and in the future, with daily concerts, dance performances, ‘kuduro’, rollerblading, skating and basketball. The corporate area was meticulously set up to receive brand customers and present new products and services. The use of vectors like innovation and technology was evident in details such as the interactive application ‘Network Coverage’, with contents created solely to reveal the network coverage centres in Angola. There was constant content dynamization through conferences and product presentations. The third area was arranged for private meetings, with special catering, including sushi and gin tasting. Media Mix: almost 100 news on various organs of the mass media, distributed among television, print, radio and internet. Audio/video/lights: to stage this event, dozens of robot lighting units, Led bars and pairs, 5,000 light W, 200 m of truss, 4 video projectors, video processors and two kinect systems were used. One motorised truss structure almost 40 m long was used to suspend more than 800 sq.m of tensioned lycra, sound and lighting system. “Several gobos covered more than 1,200 sq.m of the marquee structure,

creating high impact visual effects at night during the event”. Staging and set design: the central structure of Generation M with round stage areas, personalised walls, great structures in printed lycra, halfpipe, Kargamento booths with fluttering prize confetti and a ‘candonga’ (a blue van used for transport people) made a great impact in the scenography. Corporate areas, revealed under a red lycra covering of over 800 sq.m in dimension, included exclusive furniture, a projection area, a stage and a bar structure with an illuminated top. Results: over 35,000 people visited and experienced, over 7 days in the main trade show in Angola. The brand achieved unprecedented levels of popularity, with greater brand awareness.

Ericsson at Mobile World Congress Objective: to generate demand for Ericsson’s products and services. Building on previous years, to improve perception of Ericsson as an innovative ICT Leader that understands their customers’ business. Creative idea and description: after meeting an Ericsson representative in reception, visitors were taken to an observation platform where they could see an overview of the experience. From here, they followed one of five. Customer Interest Lines which took them on a tailored journey through the

products and services most relevant to their business. Together, these five Customer Interest Lines formed a Subway Map which gave customers a clear and tailor-made path through almost 200 Ericsson products and services. Innovative demo stations and models brought the products and services to life, including a model of an entire city, made of Perspex blocks and lit from below. At the centre of the experience sat the Compass Point, the embodiment of the Guide principle. This illuminated centrepiece was where delegates discovered more about Ericsson’s thought leadership and future vision, told through animated touch screens and research demos. Everything was designed to help Ericsson strengthen their relationships with customers. Results: visitors were up by almost 20 % from 2013; visitors spent, on average, three hours in Ericsson’s Space; 94 % of guests described their visit to Ericsson as being excellent or very good.
