Organization of an award ceremony

Each year, during the Cersaie, the most important international exhibition for the ceramic and porcelain sector, all the participating companies are invited to an awards ceremony to win “Best Exhibition Stand”. The event is organized by Confindustria Ceramica, the umbrella organization behind the trade show.

This event represented an opportunity for the members of Confindustria Ceramica to celebrate their excellence both in their industry and in the creation of their exhibition stand. Company owners of participating organizations were invited along with other key industry players and press to the awards ceremony for “Best Stand” during the International Exhibition of Ceramics for Architecture and Bathroom Furnishings.

A relaxing party after dinner

The event was held at the iconic Palazzo Re Enzo in the center of Bologna, Italy. This exclusive location was chosen to reinforce the grandeur of the award. The evening run-down was created by Genius Progetti to first include a welcome cocktail in the Loggia on the 1st floor and then a served three-course dinner.

During the dinner, there was time for some speeches of the company’s executive to introduce the awards ceremony held in the Salone del Podestà. The event was then closed in a relaxing way with a party and post-dinner drinks.

Our work for the event

This event required a significant amount of planning to meet city requirements for both the technical set-up and pedestrian movement to the location.

  • Permits & Security: building permits, security plan, security on-site pre and during event, author rights, parking permits and public land permits;
