Our first job for Abu Dhabi Company for Offshore Oil Operations (ADCO) was to organize all elements of the annual staff long service awards at the Intercontinental Hotel, Abu Dhabi in November 2008. The challenge was to provide suitable and sufficient seating within the main ballroom for some 300 staff awardees and their families. We created tiered seating down the sides of the hall for the awardees and then seating with accompanying coffee tables in the middle for the VIP guests and awardees’ families.
We themed and decorated the entire ballroom using UAE national colours and provided seat back ribbons for the sit down dinner in the adjacent ballroom after the ceremony. As well as providing all effect lighting, AV equipment and technical support for the event we also provided a revolving ADCO logo which was mounted on the projector tower to create a feature of this necessary technical equipment.
