League Managers Association – Hall of Fame

December 2, 2019

“An exceptionally massive thank you to you all and the entire Sounds Commercial team for all your efforts with the hall of fame dinner last night, with an extra special thanks to Matt for going completely above and beyond the call of duty. The event was hugely successful with a couple of notes from our board members/chairman saying that it was possibly the best event we have held since the start of the LMA in 1992! – Partnerships and Events Manager, LMA

Perhaps one of our most prestigious and unique events of 2019, Sounds Commercial are delighted to have produced the League Managers Association Hall of Fame – this year inducting football managers Jürgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola into the star-studded line up. This type of event is rare and so one we loved having the opportunity to work on it!

Held at the impressive Midland Hotel in Manchester, every department at Sounds Commercial got truly stuck in to make this an incredible event all round. Feedback from the guests has been outstanding and for our team this was a spectacular and rewarding event to see come to life on the night! We think the photos speak for themselves at this event, and it really was the attention to detail and talents of our team that made this set stand out.

To suitably welcome guests to this prestigious event, we created a fully branded reception area with printed wraps and for full impact we lined a green-carpet corridor with 18 single units, each displaying members of the Hall of Fame. This walkway led guests to the VIP drinks reception which had a further touch of glam with lightboxes of the two new members to the Hall of Fame, Jürgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola.

A simple yet well-dressed set allowed for the two stars to have all the focus on them, and pristine AV made the duo a delight to watch. Mesh cut-outs of the two new stars either side of the set looked incredible and were a really nice finishing touch. Live on the night our video production team conducted a seamless live relay of the on-stage Q&A session with the two new Hall of Fame members. Joined by the team from Sky news, this was a highly coveted event!

One of our favourite parts of putting this event together was how cohesive the look and feel of the set and delegate areas was. As a one-off event, we had the opportunity to run with our ideas and the delicate mix of lighting and materials, as well as the attention to detail in the set build and delegate experience really made for an outstanding event all round.
