DigitalAgenda Impact Awards

DigitalAgenda Impact Awards
2nd March 2017, Barbican Centre, London

We worked with our client to devise and deliver a new national awards scheme celebrating UK tech for good. The event received over 200 entries, across 12 categories and 13 great winners received awards at the event. We delivered an ambitious event for an audience of 300 at the Barbican Centre, followed by an evening reception and evening party. Speakers included the infectiously enthusiastic Eden Project founder Tim Smit and the team from BBC Big Life Fix.

“I have worked with BeaconHouse Events since 2016 on business events for DigitalAgenda. These have included our regular networking dinners for 30 in London, Birmingham, Manchester and Newcastle and also our annual showcase Impact Awards event for 300 at London’s Barbican Centre, in March 2017. That event was particularly challenging as we devised and ran it from scratch with limited budget and time, and stakeholders to please. Sarah and Catherine and the team are consummate professionals in their events trade. They are extremely thorough, spotting the devil in the detail and always thinking ahead. That’s massively reassuring as a client. Their pre-event planning is meticulous, whether that be working to budget or running guest lists. On the day they are unflappable and always can-do. They’re very much part of the home team – and are also lovely, pleasant and fun people to work with. They totally get it and I’d have no hesitation recommending them to others.”
