Understanding the brief
Clear were appointed in December 2022 to produce and manage the Bionow Awards taking place under the wings of the Concorde at the Runway Visitor Centre, Manchester Airport. The gala awards dinner attracts over 380 guests annually and Clear were asked to look after key elements including design, presentations, motion graphics and full technical support and operation.
The event rewards and recognises the hard work and innovations within the Bio-medical sector and needed to feel professional, celebratory, and slick. As a long running event the challenge is to make each year feel different and exciting and Clear were briefed to do this through AV, creative design and on-screen content.
The main awards presentation was created in Keynote with elements of animated Motion Graphics so each section had a different look and feel. Clear were responsible for all event branding and event materials including printed awards brochure, video sequences, set graphics, table plans and menus.
Clear looked after all staging and production including room décor, set design and build, projection, audio and lighting. We managed the full technical production process from planning to on the day set up, operation and de-rig.
We received excellent feedback from the client:
“I just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your help making the awards dinner happen. Nothing was too much trouble, and the evening could not have looked or went better! I’ve had great feedback from delegates who were attending who mentioned the room looked better, that the presentations looked more modern, and music was better than any years previous. The Bionow Board and Staff have also said how impressed they were. It was great to work with you all and we would love to work with you on the next awards dinner!”
