Earlier in the year we hosted our first ever Next Stage event, with The Asset Based Finance Association (ABFA) annual conference taking place on Symphony Hall’s innovative new custom-built staging.
The conference, called Building Our Future in a Changing Environment, saw hundreds turn out for a day of talks with guest speakers, Lord Digby Jones, who discussed post-election Britain and keynote speaker, the Rt. Hon. Michael Portillo.
During the day the stage was transformed using a custom-built solution made up of over 300 stage decks. The process created a stunning 600 sqm open space that was set up for the morning talks and later for a dinner alongside guest speaker, Michael Portillo.
Speaking about the event, Commercial Hires Manager, Catherine McGlone, said:
Hosting our first ever event using our custom-built Next Stage flooring was a really significant day for Symphony Hall. Not only was it excellent to see the hall transformed into a space fit for a banquet serving over 600, while still complete with the stunning art deco backdrop, but it also demonstrated the significant offer we represent as a venue to the international conference, corporate and events market.Symphony Hall has an excellent track record for conference and events delivery, and with the innovative Next Stage transforming the hall, we really are offering something incredibly unique to the events industry.
