Client: Thales Civil Simulation
Brief: To introduce their customers and the aviation press to their new site at Gatwick, reveal their new building “Sapphire” and launch their new simulator Forecast “Seven”

Key Deliverables

  • A new vision – in tune with customers, a break from past.
  • A new business – a new approach, brand vision, market positioning, customer involvement, financial alternatives

What was needed from us

  • The size, scale and facilities of the new building are to be revealed only once the audience has arrived.
  • Forecast “Seven” to be kept hidden from the audience until it’s launch during the event when it will be revealed. 
  • A theme allowing strong messages to be delivered.
  • Creative use of latest technology for communications during the event.
  • Assist with clear and consistent messages 
  • Full production services (staging, lighting, sound and AV)
  • Video production pre, during and post event
  • Adapt the event for staff which will take place directly after the launch to the customers and aviation press

   "What seemed a daunting and worrying undertaking initially, was made an enjoyable and positive task
by the complete production expertise of everyone involved from Blue Thread".
