The Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI) tasked Eclipse with creating an inclusive and engaging stage set for their Annual Dinner & Awards. The event featured a wheelchair ramp, hearing induction loops, live subtitles, and a 10.5 x 2m LED screen showcasing content, award nominees, and winners, all designed by the Eclipse content design team.

Unique Event Features

Eclipse provided freestanding digital displays for the drinks reception, displaying floor plans, sponsor logos, and general information about the awards. They also incorporated a camera setup for panning shots of the audience, emphasizing the “community” aspect of the event. 

Challenges and Solutions:

One challenge was addressing noise complaints from the previous year’s event. To reduce noise from the venue’s kitchens, Eclipse collaborated with the in-house scenic team to create a soundproofed, freestanding wall that was branded and aesthetically pleasing. 

Client Satisfaction

The client was particularly impressed with the step & repeat backdrop, which provided a sleek finish and batten uplighters, elevating the event’s overall appearance. 

The Eclipse team was proud of their collaboration with the client, designers, and producer, which facilitated a smooth pre-production process and a successful event.
