AV Accolades for Event!

Event was delighted to learn that The Crystal: A Sustainable Cities Initiative by Siemens,was awarded the Consumer Installation Award by the AV Awards last Friday!

The AV Awards are the main European audiovisual awards for UK and Europe, voted on by a panel of experts. Two Event projects, The Crystal and View from the Shard were nominated in this category, and The Crystal took the award home. The Consumer Installation of the Year is awarded to leisure and public place installations.

​The Crystal, located in a new build by architects Wilkinson Eyre on London’s Victoria Docks, was a highly demanding but exciting project. The exhibitions showcase global trends and challenges, but also existing technological solutions to build environmentally sustainable, liveable and prosperous cities. The engaging displays encourage visitors to test their perceptions on sustainable cities, now and for future generations, using interactives, graphic elements and of course state of the art AV installations.

Abby Coombs, Lead Interpreter for the project says:

‘It was an incredibly complex AV installation with a wide range of digital exhibits – from a curved immersive projection theatre to an 8 metre LED wrapped tower. We pushed the design to the limits of what was possible technologically and we are incredibly proud of the results!’

Well done to Abby and the rest of the team!
