This event attracts around 500 clients and partners to join in a series of plenary presentations, and product demonstration workshops over a three-day programme.

The first task was to recommend suitable destinations and venues for the event, taking into account the diversity of the target audience, the timing of the event (December) and need to attract the best quality attendance. Barcelona was proposed and confirmed due to its business and coastal brand, its superb flight access and its available of top class venues.

This global market research and consumer panel runs a graduate training and management programme for which they search out the very best UK graduate talent to recruit. An important aspect of this programme is their Graduate Recruitment Day.

Following the success of previous years, Absolute Corporate Events were again asked to organise this prestigious Graduate event. This included finding the ideal venue, which had to cater for a main seminar and presentation space and up to 20 separate meeting rooms to conduct individual interview and assessments throughout the day which also meant our onsite liaison had to be quick and efficient to manage the flow of meetings and ensure everything ran on-time. Our work ensured our client was able to successfully assess their potential graduate candidates in an effective and engaging way, whilst communicating their brand value and benefits successfully.

Client Feedback
100% of attendees said the event exceeded their expectations. 100% of attendees were satisfied or very satisfied with how the event was organised. ‘As always, Absolute Corporate Events delivered an excellent event for us and took away so much pressure, leaving us to concentrate on the content of the day rather than have the worry of the venue and delegate management’.

International Sales Conference for NALCO, Ecolab at Sofitel, Marrakech

This global energy company asked ACE to organise its annual sales conference, for 240 sales executives in order to reward, incentivise, update and focus its international and regional sales teams.

Services: Venue finding, event management and logistics, on-line delegate registration, engaging communication programme, incentive and team building design and delivery, awards and gala dinner hosting, production design and management, video and photography, speaker liaison

The ACE team proposed a number of global destinations and venues, and helped the client choose the most suitable for its event and audience. Due to the calibre of attendees and the ‘sales’ focus of the audience and agenda, care and attention was paid to designing a motivational and engaging programme with a delicate mix of informing, educating, rewarding and motivating.  Two off-site dinners were prepared, one with a relaxed and local flavour, and a more high-end rewarding awards gala dinner with startling entertainment.

A bespoke set, stage and production environment were designed for an engaging sales meeting, and a competitive sales-focused team activity was designed for one half day, sending teams out into the old town to barter, sell and negotiate.

Client Feedback
“We depend on ACE to propose the right solutions for us, not just the destination and venue, but on content, style and event management”
