Venue: Banqueting House – Whitehall
Overview: As an on going supplier to the Building Research Establishment, Conference Craft provided stage, set, audio visual and lighting for their Annual Conference at the grand banqueting house in Whitehall. As the central piece of the hall is the large throne, back projection would be difficult so a twin screen stage set was recommended to enable effective coverage of the presentations. The central section of the set would incorporate BRE branding and a top table and lectern in corporate colours would blend in with the set. Extra bright LCD projectors were used to combat the ambient light in the room and the sound system was controlled using an XTA speaker management system to enable delays to be added to reduce the echo in such a large historical building.
In addition to the main room stage lighting, coloured uplighters were placed around the pillars in the undercroft that was used as an exhibition and break area.
