This month our event managers have been visiting some of our favourite venues, attending wedding showcases…
We have displayed our services at Great Fosters, Wentworth Club, Barnett Hill Conference Centre, and The Elvetham! We love meeting prospective brides and grooms, it’s wonderful for them to see our services set up and for us to discuss their special day face to face!
February has seen some of our most regular clients return to us looking for production services for their conferences. We sent a production manager, show caller, lighting technician and camera operator off to Monaco for a week’s conference at The Monte Carlo Bay Hotel which was a rather lovely setting! We also provided bespoke conference production services for one of our local clients who regularly host their conferences in their warehouse in Surrey. After the conference they treated their staff to a three course meal at Wentworth Club with motivational speaker Deborah Searle speaking after dinner.
Will Greenwood, former England Rugby player, was a guest speaker at another of our events this month, he opened the conference by discussing his rugby career and particularly being part of the 2003 World Cup Winning team! Following the conference at The Hilton Wembley, we had over 30 staff ready to transform the room for the evening meal, awards ceremony and disco! The fantastic Rockaoke performed with the crowd demanding more after their set! Another of our regular clients requests a ‘high energy conference opener’ for their conference every year, for this month’s event we provided them with ten very glamourous and enthusiastic cheerleaders wearing bespoke costumes to reflect the company’s corporate brand – high energy indeed!
We’ve decided there isn’t really a quiet month for team building - now we have such fantastic indoor events it is popular all year round! At the beginning of the month Firebird provided our fast-packed Challenge 100 for 17 teams at Ascot Racecourse. The teams really enjoyed the activity, there were a number of people face painted as tigers, newspaper giraffes scattered across the room and some fantastic ABBA renditions on the karaoke! Later in the month our team were in Windsor with a small group of delegates taking part in our Chocolate Factory challenge. The teams were tasked with inventing a new box of chocolates, they even got to eat them afterwards! One of our most exciting team builds this month was at Easthampstead Park in Wokingham where we took our Robo Challenge! In pairs the group worked to build their very own robot to compete in the arena at the end of the day.
For the past three years we have also provided bespoke team building services for a very exclusive event in Surrey, which hosts a sponsor’s day where some of the England ruby players meet and participate in activities with the guests. This year’s rather unusual selection to link in with the events World Cup theme included; didgeridoo playing, cactus lassoing, a mobile climbing wall and choir singing!
The last Friday of the month saw us provide a vast array of services to The Exclusive Hotel group for their ‘Exclusive: For Your Eyes Only!’ showcase event at Lainston House focusing on exclusive use of Pennyhill Park, South Lodge, Royal Berkshire and Lainston House who are all part of the group. We work regularly at each of the venues, so we were delighted to showcase our services for the event which included outdoor lighting, video projection of James Bond movies, room lighting, casino tables, our legendary Firebird discotheque and stunning feather plume table centres – it was a huge success!
