Corporate Events Account Director Steve Jebbett comments "Grosvenor House is one of those iconic venues that everybody recognizes - it’s the venue of choice for gala dinners and balls, so every time Corporate Events provide event production solutions here, it's always an interesting and exciting production."
He continues "The 2012 IGD Glitter Ball was certainly a very involved an complex production, just in terms of numbers of acts and entertainment to manage throughout the course of the event, as well as the run of the mill challenges we always face."
Corporate Events Creative Director David Haslop adds "For the 2012 IGD Glitter Ball at Grosvenor House, the team created a whole look for the event, so everything from theme, through to look and feel of all of the print, advertising and media collateral used assets from the Corporate Events creative input, which is how we are adding real value to our clients event spend - it's no longer enough to be able to provide excellent audio visual production - our clients look at us for a full creative service as well, and I'm pleased to say that with the team we've built up, we deliver!"
As well as the audio visual production for the gala dinner, corporate events also managed the stage acts, who included TV's George Lamb, X-Factor and I'm a Celebrity... star Stacey Soloman.
Also on the bill was David Armand - comedian, actor and writer who has performed on stage, film, radio and most notably, television.
He is well known for his mime style interpretive dance of Natalie Imbruglia's Torn. He performed his famous dance on stage live with Natalie Imbruglia at the 2006 Secret Policeman's Ball for Amnesty International. The performance started with Armand dancing with Imbruglia singing live vocals backstage, then on-stage, and concluded with Imbruglia performing Armand's dance moves alongside him.
Live Music was provided by the Blues Brothers International band, who performed an energetic set of classic numbers. Steve Jebbett concludes "It was a busy night with over one thousand guests from the great and the good of the grocery industry. In terms of stage management and making sure everything ran to time, but the way Corporate Events plan this kind of event makes certain that when we get to the venue, our delivery is robust and the service we give to the client is second to none."
