PRLog - July 26, 2012 - SWINDON, U.K. -- The great and good of the grocery market came together at the Hilton Park Lane on Wednesday 4th July to celebrate the 150th anniversary of William Reed Business Media.
150th Birthday Gala Dinner
Corporate Events provided a fantastic and opulent gala dinner event production incorporating full audio visual support, as well as creating a unique and informative 150 year video timeline, illustrating the rich historical information of events that have occurred in the publishing lifetime of William Reed Business Media.
Corporate Events Head of Creative David Haslop comments: “Working on this project was a real eye opener - seeing the changes and developments in the wider world and how that pace of change has accelerated in the last ten years or so is amazing. Some of the brands we take for granted in the high street have had quite a short history, while some have been pillars of the grocery market for years - and all the while The Grocer magazine has been the “go-to” publication for the trade.”
He continues “It’s amazing to think that the American Civil war was in full flow when the first issue of The Grocer was published, and while The Grocer still has an amazing relevance and importance, the American civil war seems like ancient history!”
Corporate Events client account manager Katie Lewis adds: “Putting together the timeline video was a real challenge, both in terms of research as well as ensuring that we were historically accurate. There’s a wealth of information available at our fingertips today, but it’s not always spot on, so we made sure our research was spot on before we started production. Dave is fantastic at motion graphics and has created an amazing piece, full of facts and stats that really frame the importance of The Grocer and William Reed Business Media to the grocery market and beyond.
