The first stage was to secure a venue with optimum internet and cellular signal, large enough to accommodate 400 press journalists, bloggers, businessmen and excitable Mozilla reps. all of this in full run up to Barcelona’s biggest congress.

Prelude Events setup and managed the full event production from venue management, stage design, room décor, audio-visual and light and sound requirements to catering and branding opportunities.

In line with the clients corporate image we designed an informal setting for the press conference based around a lounge concept with lows and highs. The corporate colors were present throughout through lighting, furniture, flowers and branding.

An open bar was available throughout the congress for the thirsty journalists and nibbles served after the press conference.
