World Procurement Congress and Awards 2018

SXS were approached to provide a full production solution for this complex, multi-faceted event in the heart of London's Docklands.

The event was a two-day long conference and expo, culminating in a glittering Awards ceremony for the world’s elite procurement professionals.

One of the major challenges of an event like this was the management of multiple areas across the two days, including:

  • - A large main space to be used for briefings, round table discussions, and breakfast/lunchtime entertainment.
  • - An expo space for leaders in the Procurement industry to engage with potential clients and contacts
  • - 3x medium sized breakout spaces for breakout sessions
  • - Multiple small meeting spaces
  • - A party space and extension of the main space for the Awards
  • - Signage and engagement opportunities in the Foyer area across two floors
  • - Venue external branding and digital signage

SXS are pleased to have delivered this project to a very high standard and are currently working towards another successful event in 2019. Below is what the Event Manager had to say about the project:

“Thank you for everything you helped us create over the last few days. On behalf of the team, I can say that we are very happy - without you guys, the event would not have happened and definitely would not have happened to such a high standard… The whole event looked incredible but the awards looked particularly immense. We’ve had so many positive comments from delegates and partners about how ‘slick’, ‘impressive’ and ‘impactful’ it was.”
