Toshiba Medical approached Make Events to support them in organising an annual conference for their UK team at which individual and team achievements would be celebrated. They wanted help to find a stunning conference venue, design the conference and include team building activities.
We recommended the historic Hever Castle in Kent, childhood home of Anne Boleyn and within easy travelling distance for the Toshiba Medical team. Its conference facilities are second to none, and we knew the 125 acre grounds would be beautiful in the spring, at the time of the conference.
The Tudor atmosphere got our creative juices flowing so we designed a blood red stage set to match Toshiba Medical’s main brand colour and themed the event around the battles that the castle had witnessed. A bespoke slide deck focused on preparing for victory, with sound and lighting designed to get the heart pumping.
Of course, winning warriors usually gain riches so we designed a bespoke rowing boat treasure hunt on Hever Lake which involved teams battling to be the first to the bounty. The historic theme continued with archery, with quad biking also on offer.
The Toshiba Medical team were delighted with the venue, declaring Hever Castle to be excellent, enjoying both the food and the conference facilities. They have since asked Make Events to help with other venue finding briefs, gala dinners and roadshows.
“The Make Events team were just all really helpful, friendly, hard grafters who went the extra mile to deliver an amazing event.”
