Mercure Leicester The Grand Hotel
23rd February 2018
Themed Awards Evening
Last friday we had the pleasure of delivering and managing the Jupiter Awards at the Mercure Hotel in Leicester for the sixth consecutive year! Previous years have included such themes as a casino night and a circus themed fairground, so the four month planning process was centered around surpassing these fantastic events.
Throughout the planning process we preseneted our client with a wider variety of different designs and themes to give them as many options as possible, the theme which was finally chosen for the awards evening was a wild west theme. Our first task of the day was to set up our rodeo simulator as this would be in operation for 30 minutes prior to the start of the themed awards evening. Our team manned the rodeo simulator for 3 hours before and during the themed awards evening and was definitley a big success.
Once the rodeo bull simulator was set up our team then set out our acrylic cactus table centres on each of the 23 tables, each table centre was placed on top of our LED light bases which were all set to green. Also on the day we were task with creating a wild west themed scene which would be used for photo opportunities, to create this authentic feel our team arranged our straw bales and wagon cart wheels infront of the white backdrop.
As a finishing touch to the themed awards evening we also supplied two large cactus props and a life size wild west themed cut out which the guests used for photographs. We recieved some fantastic feedback on the evening, and what a great event it was! Our team really enjoyed managing this event and we looking forward to organising the Jupiter Awards for 2019.
