Residential Sales Conference 2018 | ZiaBia
Elavon UK & IC Kickoff 2018

Residential Sales Conference 2018

Another year, another Sales Kick Off for Elavon. We were extremely proud to be asked for the fourth year in a row to organise this annual residential conference.

120 people
Twickenham Stadium
Twickenham, England

The event, over two days brings together a competitive sales team of roughly 120 people. The aim is to update them on the coming years targets, products, share knowledge and best practices. Also to recognise achievements from the previous year with awards handed out throughout the day and at the evening's Gala Awards Dinner.

This year was my first year working on the UK Kick-off event and although I could have felt very overwhelmed, ZiaBia made my life extremely easy and were a constant pillar of support from start to finish. The ladies are extremely organised and professional but at the same time so personable and a real pleasure to work with. I couldn't have asked for a better service and have already started plans for 2019 with them.

The event

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, 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 without much involvement from the client 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 the team on the theming, d├ęcor and all 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, on a cold February evening, just 3 days prior to the first home game for the 6 Nations!

The event was so successful that after the debrief we have been asked to work on 2019's event, which we are very much looking forward to.
