Absolute Corporate Events delivers Macmillan Cancer Research awards & conference

Absolute Corporate Events recently sponsored and produced The Macmillan Cancer Research volunteers event and awards ceremony.

The event took place from Friday 7 – Saturday 8 June at The Park Inn by Radisson Hotel, London Heathrow.

ACE designed and delivered a bespoke set and stage, provided AV for the conference and awards, and supported with event and exhibition management.

The central set was presented with a map of the UK, demonstrating the nation-wide scope of Macmillan, along with one of the charity’s mottoes: “right there together for people with cancer”.

The first day was organised in four stages: the opening talks from the hosts, an interactive exhibition that spread throughout the different rooms of the conference centre, formal speeches, and finally an awards ceremony.

Lynda Thomas – CEO of Macmillan said: “volunteers will always be the most important asset in the charity. From their creative ways of fundraising to the invaluable support they provide to those affected by cancer, volunteers have been appraised by their efforts throughout this week.”

Chris Parnham, owner and MD of ACE said: “MacMillan’s Cancer Research is one of our favourite charities and to be able to sponsor and produce such an important event in their calendar was a real privilege.

“My production team designed a solution that delivered impact, value-for-money, and a speedy set change for the evening’s awards event. My super on-site team, helped ensure everything ran smoothly, allowing the client and volunteers to focus on some very inspiring presentations.”
