Project Description

The Bristech Conference has become a firm fixture for us and 2019 saw our third year managing the build-up and delivery.

Sticking with the Watershed in central Bristol (including the central bar area, all three cinemas, two breakout rooms and an exhibitions space) we knew we needed to up-the-ante and majored on the fun factor. In additional to our traditional pop-corn and ice cream we added live AI music over lunch and beefed up the after-party with a live DJ and personal spray paint stencilling (how very Bristol!).

The event was a sell-out yet again, filling the venue with 500 developers from across the country. We also hosted our largest group of sponsors yet, 14 companies and organisations including Ovo Energy; CACI and Parmenion.

Focal Point were responsible for:

  • Venue management
  • Sponsor operational management
  • Audio visual set-up – including custom-branded lighting
  • Registration
  • Print and digital signage and stage collateral and merchandise
  • Budget management
  • Catering management
  • Video capture and post-edit
  • Staffing and volunteer management
  • After-party concept and management

Nic Hemley, Bristech Co-Founder had this to say:

““Focal Point are (in my opinion) the best large conference organiser in the South West, based on three years’ running the Bristech conference. The evidence for this? Their superb attention to detail, unflappable nature, pragmatic, “always on” work ethic and ability to work extraordinarily well in a team (yet still managing to be entirely humble about their organisational abilities). To say that I would not hesitate to recommend them is an understatement. I have been lucky to work with Focal Point three times now and each and every time they have surpassed my (high) expectations. 5 stars.”
