Mercedes-Benz: 'Best of the Best’ Award Ceremony


What Was the Brief?

We were asked by Mercedes-Benz to provide a complete event management, production and entertainment package for a ‘Best of the Best’ award ceremony, consisting of our world-class 7-piece band plus a roaming jazz saxophonist. The client wanted a spectacular lighting package, a photo booth area and exciting effects as each winner was announced on stage.

What Did We Do?

Our event management team stepped in to carefully design this bespoke event from start to finish. We gathered our top musicians from Under the Covers band, for the evening entertainment. We provided all staging, a dance floor, 55” relay screens for the presentations and a photo screen with a branded banner which our team designed and created as a backdrop. This was all alongside our state-of-the-art D&B PA system to ensure crystal clear sound throughout the evening and our impressive lighting and visual effects package. Our team were on hand at all times to ensure that the evening ran smoothly.

What Was the Outcome?

One incredibly successful evening! The client was blown away by how easy UTC Events made everything from start to finish. From every design element to the show itself, we took total control over the entire evening to ensure it all ran smoothly. Guests picked up on how amazing the sound quality was, thanks to our on site sound technician who ensured everything was set up and tested thoroughly before the band’s performance. The confetti cannons also went down a treat which we supplied and installed to go off when the award winners were revealed. All in all a tech heavy production which was pulled off seamlessly and everybody had a ball. It was a truly incredible evening to be apart of!

"I was given the task of sourcing a band for a company event, wanting to source the best I resorted to Google and found Under The Covers, one of the highest rated bands on the internet, we also need a complete AV package and it was then that UTC excelled, not only did they supply the band but they were able to create the stage, lighting and AV that the venue needed. From the very first meeting with Adam & Joel they understood exactly what we needed, the project took 6 months to come to fruition but wow what an event! Weeks on from the ball, those that attended are still talking about it and that, in no small part, is due to UTC. On the day of the event the technicians (and Joel!) were there at 09:00 creating the stage, AV, lighting and even building us a new dancefloor, the band were not just great they were even better than that – from the solo sax player at the champagne reception to the laid back set during the first course and the main set at 22:00 – wow! I cannot recommend UTC enough, from start to finish they have been helpful, professional and fantastic to work with – we have an event planned for 2020 and UTC will be at the top of my list!’ – Deborah Hincklesman, LSH Auto
