Home Group Annual Staff Awards
Technical event production
One of the UK’s biggest housing associations, Home Group, paid homage to its fantastic employees at its annual staff awards, which were held at Boiler Shop, Stephenson Works, Newcastle. 300 employees joined together for the celebration, with our team delivering full technical production for the event including lighting, sound and video.
Working with Home Group for more than 8 years, we were tasked with recommending technology in line with its ‘futuristic’ event theme. Recognising that paper drinks vouchers were typically used, we suggested using RFID wristbands to allow guests to conveniently access their drink allowance throughout the evening. The wristbands also lit up during the awards in the same way as those used for festivals and concerts. Home Group branded, the bands were also used afterwards for other events such as away days; helping to split employees into teams and signal when to move on from an activity.
