When Derwent Living were planning ‘The Meet’ an informal weekend gathering for customers to drop in to on a Saturday in March, they contacted NAV to add some finishing touches to the event. The venue was Bustler Market in the heart of Derby city centre, an event space with a strong urban theme. Our brief was to add a ‘wow factor’ to the former industrial space, bring in some branding and light it up in the event colours
When we met the client at the venue to discuss their technical requirements we established the event logo featured a strong neon pink, a colour that works particularly well with modern LED uplighting. We specified a hire lighting package of LED wall uplighters and colour movers all in vibrant pink to bring the venue to life. White LED fresnels added a supplementary glow to the lower lit corners of the venue. Finally dotted all around the exhibition stands on the day were our LED battery uplighters to add pinpoint feature colour, ideal for public event spaces as they are rechargeable, meaning no trailing cables!
Our client was also keen to project the event logo and suggested a custom made lighting gobo, however to avoid the cost of producing a specialist gobo, for what was a one-off event, we specified a projection alternative. The logo was animated by our media team in advance of the event and projected on to a roller shutter, creating a cost effective focal point for one of the breakout spaces.
The venue bar was not open on the day, so to avoid any confusion we neatly draped this area with our black wool drape, pole and base system. The final element of the AV kit hire was a 65” touch screen display and laptop to showcase the clients interactive website. One of our Technicians was on-site throughout the event to ensure everything ran smoothly and without any issues.

After working with us on past events our client was aware we specialise in event filming and so booked us to capture all their event video content. We stock a range of cameras and filming rigs for event filming. On this particular job a Panasonic GH5 kit was selected as being most suitable, for its outsanding video quality and also given the small form factor, it's ability to allow for discreet, low profile filming during public events.
Our videographer shot b-roll footage throughout the event, lots of happy faces made for upbeat, engaging video content and the vibrant event lighting really brought it all to life. Working with own interviewer, we also shot a series of colleague and customer interviews, the great feedback and positive comments helped bring strong narrative to the final edit we produced for the customer.
