Music Week Awards
This high profile event took place at the Grosvenor House Hotel in Londonâ€™s Mayfair.Â With celebrity guest speakers including Michael Parkinson and James Nesbitt the stage and set had to reflect the importance of the evening.Â
The set was the main focal point and created an impactful and stunning centrepiece. Â The set was created to resemble a giant Periodic Table with the â€œelementsâ€ representing the sponsors and participants of the event. Each square of the table was able to change colour which enabled us to get some fantastic effects for the presentation of each award. Â Over 100 RGB LED fixtures were used to backlight the boxes. Â Each box was custom made and rigged by SXS. Â Graphic transfers were also applied.
The video element of this event was particularly important and large custom built screens were designed to be incorporated into the enormous set. Â An array of Barco HD Projectors were used to project onto the high gain screen. Â As with many awards shows the content was being changed up until the last minute. Â So as to effectively manage this advanced media, servers were provided which allowed for swift content management.
As well as the technical production and set design SXS provided the set design, show caller and teleprompter.
Following the awards show an afterparty took place in an adjacent room. Â This featured a full live concert production stage, lighting, sound and venue decor - all provided by SXS.
