Big Purple Productions, an AV and event production company based in Newcastle, is focused on creating bespoke, cost-effective events. The team are called upon to breathe life into a host of occasions such as gala dinners, conferences, awards ceremonies, festivals and fashion shows.

Uniquely combining AV and event management under one roof, the team at Big Purple Productions never hire in, preferring to own all the equipment they utilise. This allows them to plan effectively, knowing exactly what tech they have at their disposal, all the while keeping costs down for their clients.

Company director, Edward McKay, said: “We’re a very creative team. We have the technical background and event experience to be able to provide both AV and event production. That puts us apart from our competitors.

“We’re constantly reinvesting in the company and we travel all over the world to find the latest tech trends so we can offer our customers bigger and better effects.”


Projection mapping and LED walls are just some of the services the event company provides, as well as offering a dry-hire service. Its Big Mic Ball proves popular over a whole range of events and is currently used in 37 countries all over the world.

Though the company is only six years old, the team boasts a wealth of experience from working in the industry on projects for Gillette, Nestle, Sage and Dunlop.

Learn more about the team and their services at Confex North where they will be exhibiting at stand E6C from 3rd-4thJuly.
