Earlier this month I was asked to go to the home of the “Beatles” for a conference at the ACC in Liverpool. This was quite exciting for me because with all the places I have ever been around the world doing my chosen career path I have never been to Liverpool.
This was a three day affair including travel. Ohh the delights of the M6 with road works! But working at the ACC was a delight and was an easy venue to navigate for a pro tog such as myself. The conference went extremely well and the evenings entertainment and dinner event was well received by the company group with various acts in a large event area with music supplied by the tribute Beatles Band who were amazingly good. So that evening was work for me but no way seemed a chore but was fun. That’s why I do this job, you never know what around the next corner!
A great time was had by all with a recent Bond Themed event held at Shepperton Studios for Imperial Brands. I was asked to be the official photographer to capture the evening as the guest sales and marketing teams from various countries made their way into the grand house that sits onsite at the studios with meeting rooms, offices for film industry companies and areas for events they came across the original Aston Martin DB5 used in Goldfinger.
On arrival in the main reception they were greeted by some of the Bond film characters. (actors). Jaws and Odd Job were there to firstly greet and cause some memorable moments with attendees before they were greeted by 007 Bond himself with a few ever popular Bond girls. Many of the fellas were only to happy to have their photos taken with them!
The event progressed with a drinks reception before entering the main area where an awards presentation was held to give recognition to the winning teams within the company. Swiftly moving on with a food buffet and further entertainment of roulette tables and music from the band.
These evenings are a light relief from a busy day of conference. They are also a good way to reward their sales teams in combining fun with a bit of business.
