FA Cup, winners!
November the 4th 2008...the culmination of a 12 month project for E.ON, and a trip to London with staff and clients to see the fruits of our labours, and to enjoy some jolly good food, wine and entertainment!
E.ON, sponsors of the FA Cup, hosted a Gala Ball at the Grosvenor House Hotel, London in aid of the Spinal Injuries Association (SIA). The evening was themed by Switch as 'The Magic of the FA Cup' and presented as a celebration of over 130 years of the World's most famous football competition. Our compere for the night was Sir Trevor Brooking, and over 450 guests were entertained with on-stage interviews and anecdotes from 1966 world cup winner Roger Hunt, current Premiership manager Phil Brown, and football legends Gary Pallister, Gary Lineker, and Lawrie Sanchez. The table sales, auctions and donations raised much-needed funds for the SIA, a cause close to the heart of E.ON CEO Dr Paul Golby. Switch designed the event theming and branding, invitations to the launch event hosted by The Princess Royal at St. James's Palace, stationery, the event invitation and a 16 page commemorative brochure. PR and FA Relationship was managed by Arena International and the presentation staging and technology by The Dobson White Partnership, both equally respected and trusted suppliers to E.ON...and a pleasure to work with.
We laughed, we drank, we ate, listened, laughed again, drank a little but more, shook some hands, received a lot of 'thank you's' and touched The Cup!
