The P.E.A Awards 2020 (People. Environment. Achievement) is an annual awards ceremony celebrating the pioneers working towards a more sustainable future – in sectors ranging from energy, money, vehicles, health and the arts.
2020 saw the 10 th Anniversary of the Awards go online, as a result of Covid restrictions. 73 Media became an extension of the P.E.A team to manage and produce the Virtual event managing the production and delivery of the Awards ceremony from start to finish.
Kicking off with the VIP drinks reception, where guests who had received a VIP goodie bag in advance, were treated to a virtual at home mixologist class with renowned cocktail maker Pritesh
Mody (Sunday Brunch).
The event also featured a feast for the seasons led by the amazing team at Lick me I’m Delicious and a brilliant session from mind-bending mentalist Maddox (Britain’s Got Talent) – these elements
really created a sense of occasion and a fantastic virtual experience for attendees, taking this way beyond simply watching an awards ceremony online.
The 2.5 hour event was run from our studio in Tunbridge Wells and welcomed guests from around the world to tune in and enjoy the awards and, all important after party!
“Working with the team at 73 media was inspiring. Having to transition from a physical event, which had been producing as a live event for the last 10 years, to a completely virtual event, was quite a challenge. My live event director and I were thoroughly put at peace after an hour’s consultation with Ed Tranter and Ed Wyre at 73 Media.
Not only did the guys explain what was possible and how it would be best to do, they also came up with unique and creative ideas, that built on our own ideas and took them to the next level.
The guys were a joy to work with, extremely professional and on top of every aspect of the pre, during and post event organisation. Our audience were happy and all sponsors have signed up for whatever 2021 will bring, perhaps a hybrid event who knows! We will absolutely work with 73 Media again and again, they were an absolute pleasure and a dream to work with. Well done and thank you.”
