The New Lamborghini URUS Launch

On February 15, 2018 in the halls of the Moscow Museum was the big premiere of Lamborghini URUS, a car of a fundamentally new class – the world’s first super-SUV. With joint efforts with our partners we made the first in Russia interactive show with kinetic projection mapping and other innovative components.
Target audience was VIP Lamborghini clients, potential buyers, people who have already bought a car, but didn’t see it, Lamborghini top-managment (Italy, Russia), business partners.

For the main show, for the first time we used a projection on the kinetic surfaces, created a setup of 56 triangles equipped with LEDs around the perimeter, and used 14 projectors with 4K resolution. For the show developing, we took into the account the perspective and angle of view, which made it possible to turn the area into one multifunctional space, and everything around it into a single four-dimensional and animated frame.

The Next Event (#TNE18)

The Next Event stands for a new concept for tradeshows. In a period of time where traditional trade shows or subject of discussion, ‘are they future proof?’, we thought of a concept that changed the game. We had to, because #TNE18 has his exhibitors within the eventindustry and their guests are marketers and communicationprofessionals. We turned Hosted Buyers into Guided Buyers. Products and offers became knowledge. Sales-chats transformed in tips, do’s and don’ts. Welcome to The Next Event!

Therefor we had to change the game. We wanted to provid exhibitors with only quality visitors, but therefor they had to change their normal approach of a trade show. No big booths, signs or flags, but providing visitors with answers, tips, tricks and their expertise. So they had to fill in pre-event question that resulted in knowledge dossiers. There wasn’t a maze of endless booths, flags and confusion where is whom. No they had to stand on squares with their competitors: caterers with caterers, venues with venues, etc. Visitors entered those squares by downloading the knowledge dossier of that type of eventsport. The visitor also receved their personal program: on which square they good find exhibitors with the answer for their pre-filled questions. And at what time are the square-keynotes talking about that subject and what is the program for the congress silent disco-style? The free catering was vegan and tens of hostesses guided the buyers to their answers.

The Rematch

The Rematch is a celebration of Norway’s biggest sporting moment, the victory over Brazil at the 98 world cup. Every Norwegian remembers the game, where they were, with whom, the celebration etc. To focus on the poor status of Norwegian football now, to reposition Aftenposten as a natural newspaper for sports, and to give all of Norway a chance to re-live old memories and create new ones: Ronaldo, Rivaldo, Roberto Carlos and the other superstars came to Oslo to get their rematch against Norway98

Historically, Norway has never been one of the greatest football nation. However the match against Brazil was a huge moment in the norwegian sport history.
The idea in itself was controversial and high risk. Nevertheless, we had both the editoral and commercial support to implement this unique event.
Never before there has been an “official” rematch of a major national sports moment. The profiles from 20 years back are for many of us bigger than today’s football profiles. The sports moment is so special and important in Norwegian history that it generated a massive media attention.
The main challenge was to transform a new idea into a sustainable economic project, sign in some of the world’s biggest football profiles, find a possible and ideal date that suited the players, Aftenposten as well as a date closer to the World Cup. In order to reach our goal we had to get in place sponsors, collaborators and all practicalities, such as a TV production, venue director, ticketing and so on.

The Xynteo Exchange 2018

Xynteo is a platform for galvanising leaders and catalysing ideas – and fusing them into new projects, for new growth. They wanted to create an event that would contribute to a positive change. A platform where business leaders, sources of capital and ideas could come together, and create actual commercial projects with the potential to advance a new growth model.

We wanted to create an event where the attendees felt as if they were standing in the midst of the status quo of the world. The shipping industry represents a major role in our globalized world, therefore hosting the conference in an old docking warehouse seemed both appropriate and significant to the nature of the event. We wanted to highlight the venue and accentuate its raw features by filling the location with shipping containers. The containers were used to create areas in an open space, giving it a raw and almost unpleasant atmosphere. To make the most out of this set up we utilized the containers as a surface for communication. This was an extraordinary opportunity that made it possible to communicate ideas for a solution directly on the challenge. By doing so we sought to awaken the participants true will and need to take action.

We were asked in briefing to hold a corporate event for the top clients, highly experencial, to show the new philosophy, give to taste the new products, all in an unusual and high-impact form, so that the audience would never forget it.

Creative support was inspired from Coca Cola Iberia, a event already made under the name Tomorrow is now, was suggested for us to use as inspiration. There was the idea of creating spaces for experimentation, to perform the event in a different and emblematic venue, and a visual. As requirements we would have to include a bar area, a meeting area, different product tasting spaces in a dynamic way and 8 to 22 meeting rooms one to one.

TAPI gas pipeline – Afghanistan side ground breaking ceremony

On February 2018 the ceremony, dedicated to the TAPI crossing the border between Turkmenistan and Afghanistan was held. TAPI is the largest gas pipeline, currently under construction in Central Asia. This milestone event was attended by top-officials of 4 involved countries and about 500 distinguished guests from Turkmenistan, Afghanistan, Pakistan and India. 2 shows on both sides of the state border were created by our team: multidimensional flythrough video and 360° panorama presentation.

Turkmenistan is a strict country, strongly carrying its traditions. Multimedia technology is not widely used there. However, they want to show themselves as an innovative country, which looks to the future.
Both locations were complicated in terms of logistics. In Turkmenistan it lies in the desert: in 1 hour from the closest village and almost 18 hours from nearest airport. Our idea was to build an immersive space, where, during the show, all walls, floor and ceiling become a seamless screen.
This event had two parts: formal, where top-officials speaks and multimedia show. During first one screens were hidden behind white fabric, that is quite traditional for Turkmenistan, and visitors had no idea where the presentation will held. After all reports light goes down and magic begins!
In Afghanistan we built up a 360-degree screen inside of existing conference hall. The story, shown there, was about friendship between countries, with breathtaking panoramic views of both.
