International Women’s Day at Facebook London

The  Brief
Although this is an annual event held by Facebook, this particular event marked the 100thanniversary of women’s right to vote. Therefore, this event was to be even louder and more prominent than previous years.

The Solution
The event was held in Facebook’s offices, it was a breakfast event and welcomed over 300 guests.

As guests entered the building they were greeted by suffragette hostesses and escorted to the event room. On the guests route a gallery of images were displayed of the suffragette movement, along with a media wall for selfies for social media.

 In the main room the colour scheme was set to purple and green to match that of the suffragettes uniform. From the lighting in the room to the table centres to the stage furniture the colour scheme ran throughout.

On each place setting guests received a canvas bag celebrating the womens movement and International Women’s Day, inside they received various items of swag.

On stage we created a ‘fireside’ setting with comfy chairs and added branding to the stage using 3D letters. Various speakers spoke on different topics relating to their views on International Women’s Day and women in the workplace.

The event concluded with a party atmosphere created by the wonderful singer, Jocelyn Brown.
