• Bodie Hodges Annual Sports Dinner

Bodie Hodges Annual Sports Dinner

The Event 

The Annual Bodie Hodges Foundation Sports Dinner took place at the Leicester Tigers ground on 28th March, as our Charity of the Year, B Audio Visual supplied all of the audio visual equipment, event décor and technical expertise on the night as part of the sponsor package we offer our Charity of the Year.

What we did 

To cover all of the 77m length of the Premiership Suite we built a huge long truss set compromising of 4 x individual LED video wall screens with a centre stage area to host the main event of the night, the interview with Rugby legend Martin Johnson.  The interview was displayed on each of the screens via a camera giving all of the guests full view of the nights festivities.  A room full of lighting included pixel storm battens, LEDj Uplighters, E-lumen 8 led lights and E-lumen 8 Evoras. Further lighting was added to the room with our LED Table centre pieces and acrylic table numbers, 30 in total for each of the tables.

Either side of the interview stage area, we built two LED Columns to display all of the nights sponsors, giving them maximum coverage during the evening.  A variety of additional equipment for the audio and overall production for the event was also supplied and our red velvet entranceway and led poseur tables finished off the overall look for the evening.

What they said 

We have been lucky enough to work with B AV for the last 7 years and they have consistently provided us with first class support. Our 7th Annual Sports Dinner that took place on 28th March at Welford Road Stadium was no exception and was without doubt our best to date. With the support of Tara, Jon and the Team, the event looked and sounded fantastic with several of our guests saying how impressed they were the appearance of the Dinner. It’s always so reassuring to know that we have them involved and nothing is ever too much of a problem to sort out. This calmness under pressure always helps events toon smoothly. The quality of the sound and lighting played a big part in making this event our most successful yet and we’re looking forward to work with B AV in the future.

I have personally been involved for the last 17 years on the events side of the business and have always had a good working relationship with their team. In addition to the general conference business that B-Audio visual support, we hold two end of year award dinners, one for our sponsors and one for our supporters, where B-Audio visual manage the AV side of the night.
    This year we have an additional commercial dinner which again we will bring B-Audio visual on board.

  • Without exception, the feedback we have had is that it was the best event yet. We threw a number of extra challenges at you and the team this year which you responded to calmly and without issue.
    There were many, many things that could have gone wrong with an event that becomes more complex each year and the important thing is that we can have absolute confidence that should something happen, it will be dealt with and resolved quickly and without fuss and your team give us that confidence.

    The event was a massive success and I have received many messages from people saying how much they enjoyed the service.
    What we did this year was very successful and we hope to repeat it again next year.

  • Thank you so much for your help and support with the event last week. As you know it was a new client for us so we were keen to get it right!! The client was thrilled with all aspects of the service received, and your company really helped to elevate the image and professionalism of their event which is fantastic news!
    We are hopeful that we will be offered the opportunity to work with the client again next year so fingers crossed you will be part of all of that!

  • I cannot fault the fabulous customer service I receive from your organisation. I organise some very large events on a bi-monthly basis and one thing I do not have to worry about is AV and IT. The Technician (and I have to pay special thanks to ‘Jono’) is superb and we ask for him personally due to his knowledge and unflappable nature. I would also like to thank ‘Janine’ in the office – always extremely helpful.

  • I just wanted to say a massive thank you to you and your team for the work and efforts you put in last week at the Belfry.
    As per usual you were fantastic and provided a fabulous set both for the conference and gala dinner.
    I also wanted to say a big thank you to your team for helping with setting out the breakout rooms as the Belfry split down the room!
    I look forward to working with you again in the future 
    Speak soon!
