For 2018 we sourced the venue and accommodation at Twickenham Stadium, home of the England Rugby team. The main theme of the event was around growth which was reflected by the guest speaker Chris Moon. Chris is a former British Army Officer who left the forces to work for a charity clearing landmines.
All of the activities and sessions were very carefully structured to make sure this theme ran throughout the day.
The confidence Elavon have in ZiaBia meant that we were the "constant": we organised and ran the event minimal client involvement from a logistical standpoint. From website registration, organisation of food and beverage, production company, planning the conference sessions and breakouts to overseeing the day on site: ZiaBia had another successful hands on event!
As well as sourcing Chris Moon, we also worked with Elavon on all the theming, décor and collateral alongside their print and design agency. We fully managed the relationship with Twickenham Stadium and the Marriott Twickenham to add value to their offerings. We also managed to secure a pitch-side drinks reception. This was on a cold February evening, just three days before the first Six Nations home game!
The event was so successful that after the debrief we have been asked to work on 2019's event. This will be our fifth Elavon event, which we are very much looking forward to.
