i3 have worked on many diverse O2 projects since 2004 from exhibitions, bespoke corporate events, and the St Helen’s Community Event (where an empty unit was transformed literally overnight by i3 into a fully branded O2 hub as part of an innovative digital pilot project).
However, one of the most enjoyable events was working on the O2 Annual Business to Business Touch Rugby Competition at Twickenham over seven years culminating in up to 26 teams attending. Corporate teams & organisations were invited to come together to raise funds for the various charities they support. The day was always filled with loads of energy, with so much positivity coming from the teams and supporters! 2015 and 2016 were memorable years for the Guinness World Record Attempts with England Captain, Dylan Hartley (a world record was actually achieved in 2015, shortly before England’s hosting of the Rugby World Cup to much joy)!
When Google were first looking to make a significant impact in the education sector, they appointed i3 to design & deliver an innovation stand at the prestigious Bett Education show. With 14,200 attendees being served special fruit test tube drinks, 64 packed out seminar sessions and 11% of the total exhibition’s tweets it was a wildly successful event for Google.
This was followed up by working on Google’s sponsorship of The Festival of Education Event, UCISA and Google Campus Press Conference (Shoreditch).
Gillette wanted a best in class road show to demonstrate to its retail partners it was the undisputed leader in its field.
i3 partnered with a leading marketing agency to achieve this with a multi-use structure that generated outstanding excitement and support for the Gillette brand.
Trade visitors were taken on a journey that showcased Gillette’s grooming range in themed environments to illustrate exactly how and why each product could be used by the consumer.
The staged lighting, surround sound, and superb build quality ‘wowed’ guests and perfectly reflected the values of the Gillette brand.
Bausch + Lomb is one of the best-known and most respected healthcare brands in the world, offering the widest and finest range of eye health products. Their history of innovation continues today, this was reflected by a welcoming, open, fresh, clean, modern exhibition stand that promote their brand values.
Nokia wanted to bring the brand closer to a youth audience at Mobile Life in London. A 'Fire & Ice' theme was created to complement Nokia's hot, cool and new technology in their latest mobile phones.
Through the use of cutting-edge interactivity - including the latest blue-screen video technology, dynamic lighting and an awesome surround-sound audio experience - i3 created a synergy between Nokia’s cutting-edge products and their target market.
This funky and progressive 250m2 stand was delivered in an accelerated timeframe and installed within a two day period.
Double-deck pavilions, exhibitions stands, partner stands, complete event branding and graphics, and even a 150 person analysts event staged at the Fira in Barcelona. i3 was asked to design, build and manage all aspects of ST-Ericssons presence at Mobile World Congress and did so with resounding success!
The testimonials from our clients bear testimony to the power of our solutions.
Accenture entrusted i3 Global Design to design and build their flagship 350 metre square pavilion for 5 years at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
i3 responded to the brief by using a combination of unique design features and themes to create a strong corporate presence.
Through the utilisation of the Accenture logo i3 created a visual pointer which drew people’s attention towards the central core themes.
Jetix wanted to make a lasting impression on their launch at MIPTV of Monster Warriors, an action series that blends live-action and CG animation with plenty of giant spiders!
They appointed i3 to manage the creation and installation of a monster spider at a strategic roundabout in the centre of Cannes. This generated huge interest in the show and was a great talking point at MIPTV.
i3 Global Design was commissioned to design and build BBC Technology’ exhibition at IBC (International Broadcast Conference) for the third year running.
From the initial brainstorming the key message:
“WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF COLLABORATIVE MEDIA” was vibrantly interpreted with a major graphic exploring second tier messages such as Freedom, Revolution, Access and Liberate through the movement of people and ribbons.
The style of the stand echoed a workflow theme with a major communication wall with flowing shapes and moving light. The messaging was continued into brochure and event collateral.
I just wanted to personally say a huge thanks for all your hard work and support – the pods were superb – it was fun, and a great result! Also a big thanks to your crew who were fantastic – a really good bunch of guys. Really enjoyed working with you!
Saleha Williams, Head of New Business Development
Our stand really stood out from the 1300 other stands as it was so slick, well-designed and on-brand. It really embodied the Red Bee Media brand and was listed for the ‘Best Stand Design’ award by IBC!
Clare Plaisted Head of Communications
i3’s positive attitude, professionalism and commitment to deliver high quality results within an extremely tight deadline and to budget, was nothing less than impressive. They met all challenges head on, with good humour, and was very effective in rallying other stakeholders. I would have no hesitation in recommending them.
Google Events Team
After delivering one hundred and thirty five events within a twelve month period throughout the UK, including 8 installations in one week, I am confident in the service they provide. Their commitment, intelligence and creativity greatly improved the profile of O2 in the Business to Business sector.
Nigel Dutton, Head of Tactical Marketing
I personally, have never worked on an event that has gone so smoothly... Two amazing days that we can build on for the future – my personal thanks to all involved.
