Opencast: Q2 Conference & Castonbury 2023
Since 2019 BeaconHouse have worked with Opencast to deliver their internal staff engagement events, and as the team grows, these are getting bigger and better! In June 2023, we had almost 300 of the Opencast team attend the Q2 Conference, followed by the hugely anticipated ‘Castonbury’ summer festival celebration.
This edition of the quarterly conference was focused on people, with business updates, people-focused future plans and shared recent internal, client and social impact projects.
From sourcing dressing, entertainment and festival merch, to running the main stage, and managing registration, the Beaconhouse Events team had the transition from business update to festival fun in hand.
Another huge success of a conference and memorable Castonbury, with amazing performers from the in-house team band ‘The Castanets’, some local performers, along with Afrobeats band direct from London. We are always keen to roll out the learnings onto the next event in Q3.
