Best Awards Supplier
Cheerful Twentyfirst – International awards scheme
Ambition: Create an awards ceremony that has never before been delivered in such a theatrical, innovative, engaging and entertaining way.
Overview: This awards scheme celebrates the spirit and contribution of exceptional entrepreneurs who can see the future, and through their entrepreneurial businesses, are helping to reshape it.
From the outset we were determined to create a genuinely unique experience; a series of spectacular on-screen sequences that the audience would remember forever.
To achieve the ambition, we brought together a range of creative and technical elements; including live performance, compelling storytelling, sophisticated CGI, stage mechanics, and a host of visual effects to keep the audience guessing as to what may happen next.
The heavily rehearsed opening sequence was comprised of some twenty different scenes – and a storyteller was successfully integrated into these by having him react and interact with the surrounding action and effects.
To further ensure we maintained the audience’s attention throughout, we peppered the unfolding drama with a series of special effects; Rain, smoke, wind, fog, pyrotechnics – and culminating in an animated on-screen butterfly that appeared to somehow land on the storytellers’ hand.
The focus and attention of the audience throughout the 2-hour show said it all.

Due to ECTRIMS’s prominence and previous annual success our client’s standards for staff were high. They sought high calibre personnel, who are well practiced in the industry and could offer support to their team and attending delegates.

The Broadsword Production Group – The Indie Games Contest
A well connected and creative event production company, with our fingers kept on the technical pulse of the industry, we are proud of our reputation, our specialist knowledge and our innovative work. We work alongside a diverse mix of clients across multiple sectors to design, develop and orchestrate fully integrated, sensory experiences. So often we are asked to create a definitive style, visual impact and commercial resonance for our clients.
As part of this awards process we were asked to take visual ownership of a wide variety of items installed across two gallery spaces, providing design and production for the event and working closely with the client to refine the final concept. The event aim was to celebrate the art and innovation of some of the best games developers from Europe with the opportunity to try out some great games, meet the developers who created them, vote for an overall award winner, and have fun!
It was so inspiring to showcase the quality and creativity of the games developed to delight Android smartphone users! Developers were chosen based on the level of innovation, fun, design excellence and technical and production quality. We’d like to think that Broadsword were chosen and then delivered, based on exactly the same criteria.
