Schneider Electric hosts a major conference, every second year, for its Industry business. FrontRow were appointed to event manage the entire event – from concept through to delivery, ultimately bringing together experts in the industry to share their experiences and learnings on the best industrial automation and software solutions, and to showcase how Schneider Electric are helping their customers, by arming them with the tools to drive their plant’s operational efficiency solution.
Catering for over 400 delegates, FrontRow secured the venue, designed the plenary space, breakout rooms and product exhibition – known as the Marketplace, produced the set design and managed all AV requirements, including video production and animation.
FrontRow also negotiated preferred rates at the Crown Metropol for all delegates, and coordinated all accommodation requirements for the Schneider Electric management and speakers.
FrontRow worked with Schneider Electric to develop and deliver the comprehensive multi-day program of events, which included three days of conferencing, multiple breakout streams, networking functions and awards dinner.
From the development of the conference theme, the design and creation of all event collateral such as the responsive registration platform and website; presentations; custom lanyards, name badges, and coffee cups; run sheets and scripts; and Schneider Electric branded gift packs for all delegates (encompassing a backpack, water bottle, pens etc), through to managing the registration process on-site and coordinating the movement of all delegates across the three days – FrontRow delivered.
FrontRow also produced a custom Schneider Electric power symbol in two-metre-high foam, forming the centrepiece within the Marketplace.
Finally, on the second night of the conference, Schneider Electric held an Awards Dinner where FrontRow oversaw the guest list, the design and production of the stage set, all the AV and pre-production requirements, a comprehensive run sheet for the Awards process, on-stage entertainment and all table centrepieces and room styling.
The feedback from Schneider Electric was outstanding. They were so impressed with the outcomes the conference, they are looking forward to hosting a larger scale event in 2018.
