Bring me sunshine

Posted on Monday, March 3rd, 2014 by

After last week’s somewhat joyless weather, we wake up today to clear blue skies. This got the Events team reminiscing about warmer climates and jobs that we have done in the sun: Openwork in Oman, Ipiranga in Plaza De Cibeles in Madrid, and the MARQUES Annual Conference in Monaco in September.

While at the Monaco event, we basked in glorious weather all week. It was even warm enough to get some funky evening time lapses and some great night-time footage of the delegates letting their hair down.

Watch this video to see the week unfold and remind yourself of what the summer looks like.

With 12 months of pre-planning Ellie, Rich and Sarah couldn’t wait to spend a week in one of the most famous sunny places in the world, Monaco. Comprising of a four-day conference intertwined with three evening events in different locations, the main event took place at the Fairmont on the famous F1 hairpin bend. This is right on the sea, which meant that in between rigging, rehearsals and conference sessions, we got to soak up some sun and watch the posh cars parading round the bend.

We overcame the challenges of the heat, venue restrictions and long hours, and the event ran flawlessly leaving us on a high (with a slight tan to boot!).

Roll on summer and MARQUES Copenhagen 2014!
