NHBC Star Awards
NHBC’s STAR Awards is an internal facing awards ceremony to recognize and reward its fantastic staff. The focus of this year’s event was to build on the inaugural awards and to enhance the guest experience. As such, it was vital to ensure the awards were a prestigious event – one that colleagues would want to push themselves to go the extra mile to confirm a place at for the following year.
HGA were appointed to deliver an unforgettable event, including thorough project management, technical excellence and creative support, all to ensure the entire guest experience was a magical one.
Creating the extraordinary
HGA worked closely with the NHBC events team on the creative concept to ensure it offered a wholly immersive and captivating experience for guests. We wanted guests to feel the ‘WOW’ factor from arriving at the venue till finally departing. The challenge was to deliver an event above and beyond the standards of the previous year and exceed all guest expectations by ensuring they feel like stars throughout the evening.
To create an unforgettable guest journey, we utilized multiple entertainment and theming options from elegant, visually impactful table centerpieces to bespoke hand painted interactive photo sets to impress guests at every touch point.
Our technical team delivered the wow factor through a state of the art set solution, complete with statement star cloth, large rear projection screen and huge LED lit letters spelling out ‘STAR AWARDS’ to compliment our lighting effects.
HGA’s Film & Video team produced exciting animated stings to complement NHBC’s brand guidelines and were on hand throughout the awards to capture highlights of the event plus material of each winner to create a memorable highlights film. NHBC were able to promote this video internally to showcase an unforgettable evening – providing a sense of pride for those who attended and a source of inspiration for those who didnt.
To close, all winners were invited up on stage to be showered with an array of glitter cannons – a fitting finale to an event that exceeded expectations and set a new benchmark for NHBC’s STAR Awards.
