As well as delivering hundreds of exhibitions across the globe every year, our creative talents reach right around the world of galas and events too.
And we're still being reminded about the memorable Harry Potter event we created in Brighton...
ExploreGB were working with Warner Bros and the Harry Potter Studio Tour, London, and they wanted to create an event that was simply on another level. They needed the quality and expertise of a design and build company who could bring that event to life.
The event required the flair and know-how of Equinox to transform the Brighton Centre in to an experience with an authentic, stunning and exasperating Harry Potter look.
It was going to be a huge occasion. A gala dinner with 1000 people; immersed in a real-life, eye-opening Harry Potter experience for one fantastic evening.
We met the Visit Britain and Warner Bros team a number of times, working in tandem to discuss ideas, present designs, and converse about timescales and execution to ensure that the project was delivered with style and excellence.
We were had to completely transforming the venue, re-creating many of the scenes from the world-famous Harry Potter tour, and giving guests a taste of the real thing.
The results were outstanding…
After a Tourism Ireland drinks reception, guests experienced the launch of the Forbidden Forest featuring the real Aragog from the film series. They also took part in a live interactive wand experience directed by Paul Harris, wand choreographer for the whole Harry Potter film series.
They then dined in the Great Hall, before being whisked through Malfoys Manor, Platform 9; took part in a 3/4 photo experience, the Dark Arts…all the Harry Potteresque things you’s expect!
Warwick Davies, who played Professor Flitwick also made a special appearance, before guests took to the dancefloor at the end of the night, wrapping up an amazing Harry Potter experience for everyone.
Our management of the project, coupled with a fantastic design team and excellent execution, the results proved to be very dramatic; and hit the spot with organisers and visitors.
