Metro Broadcast moved to Kennington Park Business Centre at the end of 2012 and are now fully settled in our new premises and very busy with events and conferences following a great start to 2013.
Metro is an event production and audio-visual service provider. We produce live events all over Europe but for this blog entry we thought we’d focus on an event we produced recently that was a little closer to home, in Vinopolis, next to London Bridge.
The Sparkle Ball was a fundraising event organised by the UK branch of the Akshaya Patra Foundation, the world's largest non-governmental organization providing food for over 1.3 million deprived school children across India.
Metro were commissioned, along with Vinopolis, our partner, to provide all production services for the Ball, including sound and video as well as specialist rigging and lighting for the event.
Both Metro and the Operations team at Vinopolis worked very closely with the Foundation's UK representative, Dipika Khaitan, and renowned fashion designer, Anamika Khanna, along with her coordinators in India, to make the event a success.
Akshaya Patra and Anamika Khanna were determined to create a 5-star VIP event as all attendees were highly prestigious and distinguished personalities from both London and India.
We liaised closely with their lighting designer to create the look and ambience required by Anamika Khanna and also took full technical responsibility, as well as part of the logistical responsibility, for the entire evening, including taking partial control of what was a very flexible running order.
We’re delighted to be part of the thriving business community that is here at Kennington Park Business Centre. We would be only too happy for you to come and have a look round the premises and meet the team, so please get in touch if that is something you’d like to arrange.
