Event Brief

Kantar Worldpanel UK is an international company dealing in consumer knowledge and insights based on continuous consumer panels. Kantar needed a venue to host their annual conferences for staff, where they participate in team building activities and recognise achievements within the company.

The Event

For their annual conference, Kantar Worldpanel UK took over the Great Hall, Drake & Harris Suites, Centenary Hall and the on-site music venue, Under the Bridge.

Half of the Great Hall was set up in a theatre style for 500 delegates, with a bespoke set and stage, boasting a catwalk and four large plasma screens, while the second half of the hall was used as a breakout space, housing the registration area, refreshment stations, and team building games.

The Drake & Harris Suites were used as breakout spaces for a collaborative team building activity, The Rock & Roll Choir. The space was later used for Kantar’s Ultimate Challenge.

The Centenary Suite was used for the River Crossing, a bespoke, energetic and competitive team building activity.

In addition to the refreshment stations placed in the Great Hall, Grab ‘n’ Go street food stations were set up in Under the Bridge for the evening networking reception.

Jill Dunlop, Director at Absolute Corporate Events Ltd, commented:

Stamford Bridge provided a brilliant and versatile venue for this event.  Since we were also providing the team building activities, it was so useful to be able to call on their flexible team to answer our queries at a moment’s notice. Having Under the Bridge on-site was a vital part in ensuring the whole event ran well, not only for the plenary sessions, catering and afternoon activities, but also for the evening event, making it a relaxed affair for all concerned.
