High Energy Injection – Team Building & Conference Event Management

The Finance division of a global construction machinery giant, initially approached KDM with a view to putting together a team building activity event, which would be a key element of its annual company conference.

The conference would be exclusively for the Finance division staff, with a lot of the content structured around the company’s varied product range. The organisers were hoping to squeeze a hefty agenda into a very tight timeframe, and after the day’s business sessions the participants would attend a reception followed by an awards evening. For the Midlands – based company, the Mere Golf Resort and Spa hotel offered the ideal event location.

Having discovered that KDM are in fact a full service Events Company providing not only team building activities & entertainment, but also event management & conference production, our client expanded our brief somewhat in order lighten their own event planning burden.

While our event manager worked closely with the client during the planning phase, we picked up new tasks to assist with event production including full event management & support for the day’s programme to ensure the smooth running of the events. We devised a bespoke 30-minute Family Fortunes – style ice-breaker focussed team building session in the afternoon, involving questions based on the company’s products – teams answered 19 specially-prepared questions on screen, using table buzzers and added sound effects contributed to the competitive atmosphere.

For the conference as a whole KDM provided full AV support, including set and stage, audio, video and lighting.

Any fatigue felt by the 82 delegates at the end of their day of business sessions was soon dispelled by our evening entertainment in the shape of nine-piece soul and latin band, which injected high energy into a very lively evening drinks reception.

For the awards dinner the venue was transformed with a vibrant turquoise and orange theme, continuing the buzz of the preceding upbeat reception. As well as colour-wash lighting around the room, we provided specially designed table centres that continued the flamboyant theme.

In addition to assisting with conference event management, KDM provided AV support for the awards dinner, as well as music to accompany the presentations for each of the winning categories.

Speaking after the event our client said: “Conference went very well, everything was brilliant, band provided were amazing – table dressing and room looked great.”
