Creative Conference, Awards Dinner & Celebratory Party, 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, awards dinner and celebratory party for 800 people, across 2 days.

Aligned to the client’s brand, day 1 included product demonstrations and presentations, concluding on a black tie dinner and entertainment. On day 2, we transform one of the spaces within Manchester Central into 8 international street food stations, as well as themed entertainment to match all cuisines, for all 800 employees to have a great celebration. 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 a fantastic 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.
