Welsh Athletes Hall of Fame Dinner 2016

On the 8th October, Hilton Cardiff welcomed crowds of 200 plus athletes and coaches to witness a new group of elite athletes receiving an honourable award; a place on the Welsh Athletes Hall of Fame. It was an exceptional evening where existing Hall of Fame Athletes presented prestigious awards honouring achievements of all areas of sport throughout 2016.

Genero wowed the crowds showcasing recipients’ achievements in a world class display with graphics. Not only that, the top-class Audio Visual and the uniquely designed branding complimented the event with appropriate lighting and style.

But it wasn’t all smooth sailing. Two days before the event, Genero were told their six-hour set up time wasn’t possible. Now faced with a two-hour rig time, Genero had to adapt their approach without compromise. With some adjustments and team spirit, the result was still a perfect, professional production. So much so that James Williams, Head of Operations at Welsh Athletics commented by saying:

“Firstly, many thanks for all the hard work the team put into our awards evening. Given the unexpected challenges faced, everybody has been very complimentary of the presentation. Well Done!”

Pete Leckie, Managing Director of Genero said:

“We were thrilled to be part of such a prestigious event. I couldn’t be more proud of our team and how they managed to turn around, what seemed like, an impossible set-up task. The event ran without a hiccup and we are considering suggesting a new category for next year;  Technology Athletes of the year”!
