The Brief

We were asked to conceptualise and deliver a conference for over 180 delegates, for an international Food & Beverage Commercial and Leadership Workshop in South Africa.

Our Approach

Hosted every three years, this conference is a prestigious event that brings together speakers and suppliers from Hilton's Middle East and Africa hotels. Being a smaller size workshop than their counterparts in the UK and Europe, we approached the set up in a more personal way for the delegates; creating a circular presentation area with surrounding screens to ensure engagement at all times.

The Solution

From creation of the 'Keep Your Focus' identity to concept, presentations, all communications up to the event and ultimately the workshop itself, we curated every element of this highly successful format from start to finish.

The Progress team stayed one step ahead of the planning process and met each deadline with focus and enthusiasm to create an interactive and engaging conference. With this event, you have not just gained ultimate strategic understanding and commitment from our teams, you have showcased a new way of delivering a conference. We are lucky to have such a strong partner with Progress who takes us to the next level. I look forward to working with them in the future.
