Sovnet Summit 2016

PA recently had the pleasure of working alongside the events team at Sovereign to produce their biennial Sovereign Summit.

This year’s event was held on July 6-8 at the Sky City Convention Centre and was attended by 250 people.

Over the three days, attendees had the opportunity to listen to a range of excellent keynote speakers and hear from key Sovereign staff. Sovereign also ran an exhibition where key external suppliers as well as a selection of internal groups were able to engage further with the Summit attendees. The agenda also featured workshops in a number of breakout spaces.

PA created a high-tech, sophisticated plenary room featuring two 7m x 4m curved LED screens, which delivered outstanding visual content, and a bespoke white stage designed around two 4m-diameter circles.

Sovereign also called on PA to produce their two hosted social events during the Summit: a casual cocktail and canapé event held at Bar21 and a more formal banquet dinner at Wolf of Water St. LittleWolf provided outstanding catering and The Hipstamatics entertained the crowd.

Feedback from the event was amazing, including from one of the exceptional guest speakers, Mike Allsop (

“As an inspirational and motivational corporate speaker, I see many different AV set-ups. I had the pleasure of working with Ian and his team at Production Associates. The AV and design was outstanding, the best I’ve ever seen. From the curved twin LED screens to the sound system quality, the interface and ease of set up directly from my personal laptop. As a professional speaker this really helped me deliver. I would highly recommend these guys - outstanding.” - Mike Allsop
