Celebrating the success of Fast Forward mentees with Anna Valley

The Fast Forward 15 Graduation has become a staple in the Anna Valley event calendar. Every May for the last three years, the audio-visual and entertainment technology provider has partnered with FF15 to celebrate the achievements of their latest cohort of mentees at the annual graduation event at Tobacco Dock.

Anna Valley supplies both rental and permanent installation services to the live event, broadcast and entertainment industries. Providing much more than technical equipment, the company has earned a reputation for outstanding support and inventive use of technology by bringing creativity and innovation into the projects they’ve delivered over the last three decades. The audio-visual team supports exhibitions, conferences, live shows and every kind of event for some of the biggest venues and brands in the world – equipped with state-of-the-art equipment and underpinned by extensive R&D.

Anna Valley has been helping deliver shows for event agencies and corporate clients at Tobacco Dock for many years. In 2021, after working with the venue’s team to provide virtual and hybrid event solutions during the pandemic, Anna Valley was appointed as Tobacco Dock’s audio-visual partner. This partnership means that the Anna Valley team is perfectly positioned to provide a comprehensive technical service to event organisers and exhibitors hosting shows at the venue. Their state-of-the-art rigging, lighting and sound systems are already installed in the larger event spaces and their technicians, project managers and account handlers are on site and part of the Tobacco Dock team. For the last two years Anna Valley has also hosted their own annual event at the iconic venue – the Inspiration Showcase inspires and informs event professionals by demonstrating how the creative application of audio-visual technology can enhance event experiences.

Anna Valley’s reputation and relationship with Tobacco Dock made the company a natural choice as the AV partner for Fast Forward 15’s graduation events hosted at Tobacco Dock. Each year Anna Valley provides audio-visual technology and services to support the event – starting with a hybrid event in 2021 that capitalised on the company’s expertise across both event and broadcast technology, before returning to an in-person experience in 2022.

The Fast Forward 15 programme is an important and fantastic initiative that we’re proud to support. It’s a privilege to play a small part in encouraging and empowering women in the events, hospitality and related industry to be the best they can be through this partnership.
Dan Orchard, Venue Director, Anna Valley

It’s been our pleasure to work with Anna Valley for the last three years in support of the Fast Forward 15 Graduation Event. Professionally speaking the team always go above and beyond, bringing their creativity and ideas to the table. We have built such a great relationship with the team which means our graduation event runs without issue and they are always on hand to advise and support us. We cannot recommend them highly enough and are thrilled that they continue to support the programme and our initiatives.
