Gala Dinner and Award Ceremony
Airport 10 Year Anniversary Event
The Challenge: DFA Productions an Event Management company were asked by Doncaster Airport to produce and manage their10 Year Anniversary Event for around 350 guests.The venue was the home of the Vulcan Bomber, the only remaining one that can still fly, which is based in a huge airplane hangar at Doncaster Robin Hood Airport. The task was to section off part of the hanger for reception drinks and canapes, build the staging, lighting and AV – showcasing the magnificent Vulcan plane.
DFA was also asked to help reveal the new Thomas Cook Aeroplane which took place after dinner when it was in complete darkness outside.
The event was challenging due to the size and scale of the hanger, there were daylight issues and owing to the size of the Thomas Cook aeroplane, we lit it with four huge film HMI Exterior lights to create the impact sought.
The Solution: The event started with reception drinks with guests enjoying the sound of a String Quartet creating a relaxing ambience, followed by a number of presentations from Doncaster Airport and Thomas Cook, followed by a Gala Dinner and Awards Ceremony.
We then revealed the new plane as per the pictures, followed by cocktails and a band.
The event was magnificent success and we wish Doncaster Airport continuing success going forward following the event.
