The Bauer Media Fleet News Awards Ceremony

Bauer Media, a prestigious media company, collaborated with Eclipse to create an unforgettable Fleet News Awards Ceremony, honouring the accomplishments of the industry. The event took place at The Grosvenor House, London, on March 15, 2023. This case study highlights the event’s essential components, challenges encountered, and the client’s satisfaction. 

The Brief 

Eclipse was tasked with designing the stage set, creating all on-screen content, writing the script, and delivering the event on-site. The goal was to create a seamless, engaging, and unforgettable experience for the attendees. 

The event was managed by a team of 9 full-time Eclipse staff members and 30 freelance crew members working across three shifts. 

Challenges and Solutions 

The Grosvenor House, one of London’s busiest venues, posed challenges due to its strict curfews, making loading in and out a complex task. Additionally, other productions were scheduled either before or after the Fleet News Awards Ceremony, requiring careful planning. 

Eclipse skilfully addressed these challenges by thoroughly coordinating each aspect of the event, ensuring deadlines were met, and executing the event smoothly. 

Client Satisfaction 

The client expressed their gratitude and satisfaction in an email, stating: 

“Sorry it’s taken over a week to send this email, but I just wanted to say a big THANK YOU to everyone involved with this year’s Fleet News Awards. The graphics, videos, stings, etc. all looked fantastic and thanks to all the crew onsite for a job well done. Nothing but positive feedback which is what we like to hear! It’s a pleasure as always to work with you all… Bring on the AM Awards (loving the set!) 😊”
