The events world is fast paced and ever changing. Problems can arise in a split second with anything from a venue to catering, cancelling at the last minute.
The events team at Vindis Audi in Huntingdon experienced this first hand when they were planning a launch night to unveil their new showroom. Having booked a marquee, they were given just 48 hours’ notice that the structure had fallen through and it would not be installed as planned. With the invites out and clients as well as staff expected to attend the evening, there was no possibility of postponing the event. A replacement had to be found.
Simone Gill, Senior Marketing Coordinator at Vindis Group, approached Evolution Dome with the last minute request. The brief included creating a modern and elegant space within which to host clients, colleagues and the local business community, for the unveiling of the brand new Audi showroom. The space had to be big enough to comfortably accommodate guests as well as AV equipment, seating, live music and a stage where a presentation would be delivered from
Evolution Dome advised on using the 15m cube for the event. The 185sqm structure is fully waterproof and 55mph wind rated, ready for whatever the British weather has to throw at it. The Audi showroom was designed to a high spec, with a minimalist and futuristic feel, the cube complemented the modern architecture well. It was the perfect choice for the Vindis Audi event as it combined the functionality of a marquee with the unique design and look of an air structure.
The added benefit of using an inflatable structure meant that the whole venue; structure, flooring and lighting, were ready in a matter of hours. This helped greatly in making sure that the event was ready on time, with a minimal amount of stress.
LED coloured lighting battens were installed to complete the venue and provide an ambient glow. Simone commented that the inflatable cube provided ‘a wow factor when everyone entered the event, which was in keeping with our building structure’. It was ‘above and beyond’ the team’s expectations. Evolution Dome sprang into action and ‘saved the day after we got let down last minute, and created something much more than we imagined!’
Simone was kind enough to comment that the service she received was ‘excellent service from start to finish. They couldn’t have been more helpful or cooperative’ and would ‘definitely’ use Evolution Dome again for future events.
