Our first job for Abu Dhabi Company for Offshore Oil Operations (ADCO) was to organize all elements of their annual staff long service awards at the Intercontinental Hotel, Abu Dhabi in November 2008.
The challenge was to provide sufficient and elegant 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 theatre style seating with accompanying coffee tables in the middle for the VIP guests and the awardees’ families. We themed and decorated the entire ballroom using the 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, 3-D ADCO logo which was mounted on the projector tower, thus creating a decorative feature out of a necessary piece of technical equipment.
