2019 was the first time that LRI produced The Which? Awards and provided the opportunity for the live event and video production company to expand their supplier base and bring new ideas to the table. Senior event producer, Amy Paterson, had heard of Anna Valley through colleagues that had worked with the AV and entertainment technology providers on shows like X-Factor and Britain’s Got Talent and decided that this event was the perfect chance to start a new relationship.
Anna Valley came highly recommended and, after working around each other in some capacity for a long time, it was about time we did a job together. They have a lot of young crew and fresh ideas and that’s what intrigues me, I’m pleased to say that they smashed it.
The 13th annual Which? Awards were hosted at One Marylebone on the 20th of June 2019 and were attended by 280 nominees and guests from a broad spectrum of the UK business and retail world. As full-service AV suppliers, Anna Valley were responsible for video, sound and lighting for the event which was hosted by Steph McGovern. The video components included a 5m x 3m, 3.9mm LED video wall with full playback and cue systems, conference monitors and relay screens. These were supported by a dispersed sound system and sympathetic lighting while a series of custom gobos were used to project the Which? logo onto the building architecture.
“At Anna Valley it doesn’t matter how big or complicated a project is, every event is an opportunity to prove our capability and dedication to delivering the best AV possible within the client’s budget,” says Anna Valley business development director, Dan Orchard. “It’s this approach that’s helped us earn our reputation for AV excellence and, in this instance, has led to a great new working relationship with Amy and the team at LRI.”
