We like to let our work do the talking; still, we’re not adverse to a pat on the back every now and then. We tend to always be nose deep in the ‘next project’, so industry awards are a rare opportunity to take a step back and tangibly recognise our teams for the wonderful work they deliver.
Of course, they also give us the opportunity to showcase our work to our peers as well, which is a pleasure in such a creatively compelling and competitive industry. Oh, and there’s booze – that too.
So when we found out we’d been shortlisted for not one, not two, but three major industry awards, we were honoured. It’s just three sleeps until the first awards night – in preparation, here’s an overview of our shortlisted entries.
The Conference & Incentive Travel (C&IT) Excellence Awards recognise and celebrate companies applying best practice to the creation, planning, production and management of innovative and successful events within B2B sectors. innovision is up for ‘International Conference of the Year’ with the GREAT Festival of Creativity, Shanghai, delivered on behalf of UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) in March 2015.
A unique partnership between British Government and major private sector organisations, the GREAT Festival of Creativity was a three-day showcase of British innovation, held at the beautiful Long Museum in Shanghai. As one of the flagship events for the UK Government’s wider GREAT Britain Campaign, the Festival’s core ambition was to draw on the most enterprising and inspirational examples of British creativity in business and display them within an experience-led, interactive environment of multi-sector excellence. We delivered extensive technical, logistical and show management expertise and created a bespoke environment to support and amplify the innovation on display.

Winners will be announced at the Awards Night taking place this Friday, 25 September at the London Hilton on Park Lane, kicking off an exciting few months for innovision.
Continuing our B2B success, the GREAT Festival of Creativity, Shanghai has also been shortlisted for ‘Global Brand Activation’ at this year’s all new Event Awards, which are designed to celebrate the very best in brand experiences and honour those delivering excellence in this space. The Event Awards will take place on Wednesday, 14 October at the Eventim Apollo.
Event Technology Awards
The second annual Event Technology Awards celebrate those who have pushed the boundaries of technological innovation in the delivery of festivals, conferences, shows, concerts, experiential events, corporate hospitality and brand activations.
innovision has been shortlisted for ‘Best Use of Projection Mapping’ for our pioneering launch of The Crystal on behalf of Siemens. We were commissioned by the German electronics giant to produce a high-profile, fitting launch event which would unveil the dramatic, crystal-shaped structure to London society, press and opinion makers, and establish the Urban Sustainability Centre as a new London landmark and a knowledge hub for sustainable cities.
In what was one of our most technically challenging executions to date, we designed and delivered a 3D projection mapping show across The Crystal’s uniquely shaped, glass-clad façade. Using pioneering technology, we turned an original and largely inconceivable idea into an innovative, fully immersive and ground-breaking experience, which served as a catalyst for intellectual and emotional engagement.

The Event Technology Awards ceremony will take place on Wednesday, 11 November at the stunning pop-up venue Supernova in London’s Embankment Gardens.
It’s shaping up to be an exciting few months ahead… fingers crossed for a win!
