White Light Wins Event Production Supplier of the Year!

AwardsThe Drum UK Event Awards recognise and reward brand activation and experiential agencies as well as industry suppliers, event organisers and marketers. This year’s Awards took place at the Marriott Grosvenor Square Hotel on Tuesday 5th December. After another hugely successful year, White Light was nominated in two categories – with the company being the recipient of the Event Production Supplier of the Year Award.

The Event Production Supplier of the Year Award aims to recognise companies that have used their knowledge and expertise to deliver unforgettable events. It also acknowledges organisations that have used technology creatively, pushing the boundaries of what can be achieved on events. This year alone, WL has delivered some ground-breaking projects, including the University of Cambridge Fundraiser at Banqueting House which saw the company draw on the latest media server and projection equipment to transform the interior of the historic venue. The company’s work on the event saw them win Best Use of AV Technology at the Event Technology Awards. WL has also delivered many other significant events such as lighting the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, the official reopening of Hintze Hall at the Natural History Museum and the Google Cloud Conferences at ExCeL.

WL’s Director Richard Wilson comments: “As a company, we have grown exponentially in recent years. When we started in 1971, we were supplying lighting to West End shows. Whilst we still work in theatre, we have diversified significantly; especially in the world of events. We’re now the only cross-palace production supplier at Historic Royal Palaces and an approved supplier at Unique Venues of London, Tate, Saatchi and the Southbank Centre to name but a few. Not only that but we continue our role as Production Service Partner at Central Hall Westminster and have been appointed as the in-house technical supplier at Claridge’s and the Connaught Hotel Group”.

24845795_1665317113528383_265411223497998336_nOver the past twelve months, WL has worked on a wide scope of events. These include Conferences (European Space Agency at the Science Museum), Launches (the Women’s Equality Party), Experiential (FIFA Interactive World Cup Finals), Gala Dinners (Stonewall Charity Dinner), Fashion Shows (London Fashion Week), Award Ceremonies (London Evening Standard Progress 1000) as well as a range of smaller scale events such as dinner receptions, private parties and weddings.

Richard adds: “The reason we’ve worked on such a diverse mix of events this year is due to our constant growing reputation in being able to offer clients the very best service possible. As a London-based company, we employ more than 220 members of staff, with a dedicated Production team. We also invest £3 million in the latest technology, ensuring we have an unparalleled range of resources”.

Receiving the Award concludes what has been an extremely successful year for WL, with 2018 looking busier than ever before. Richard states: “As seen at this year’s Drum Awards, the events industry is constantly evolving and this is something we’re continuing to match. For us, it’s about going beyond expectations and constantly delivering results that were previously not achievable; something which clients old and new can both benefit from”.
