Creative Conference, For Hilti

Event Produced by Make Happen

Our client Hilti, a highly successful global company, providing worldwide leading-edge technology wanted to create a conference for 800 people 

Aligned to the client’s brand, transform one of the spaces within Manchester Central into 8 international street food stations and provide mesmerising entertainment for all 800 employees. From design to production and delivery, our brief included managing the concept, design, production, transformation of the venue, theming, styling, reception entertainment & conference entertainment.


Working to a concept involving 8 street food markets scenes from China, Germany, India & Mexico, we designed, planned, produced and choreographed all of the styling & entertainment for the conference. Our styling included street market stalls, authentic backdrops, styling, décor & signage. Our entertainment included original Chinese lion dancers, fusion dancers performing traditional sequences from China, Germany, India & Mexico, and our walkabout party band Phunk Phenomena.


800 people had an enjoyable and memorable time – eating, drinking & dancing. Conversations started, connections and memories were made, selfies were taken, and content was shared.
