The Brief

A London-based private equity firm convened at Cowley Manor Hotel and Spa in Gloucestershire for their annual company offsite meeting, for a 3-day mix of work and play.

Historically offsite meetings had been in exotic foreign locations; this time a UK destination was chosen, and the challenge was set for the experience to be a highlight of the year, nevertheless!

Oasis was engaged to support the event in every aspect, ensuring that the meeting and hospitality elements ran seamlessly and were of the highest standard.

The Solution

Oasis delivered a fail-safe sequence of meetings and breakouts, unique activities and evening events which received hugely positive feedback from the partners and delegates.

Planning meticulously with the award-winning Gloucestershire hotel, utilising all areas inside and outside to best effect, we kept the scheduled events moving around different locations in the venue over 3 days.

In a series of tightly coordinated, creative changeovers the intimate hotel provided settings for an interchangeable breakfast room and conference plenary complete with sound light live streaming and filming, a welcome party for the first evening in a fiesta theme, with the hotel bar transformed into a nightclub for one night only with white surfaces, a disco ball and DJ.

Breakouts by day in the Lounge, transformed to host an 8-piece band with a stage, dance floor, backdrop and lighting by night, with the hotel bar transformed once again, into a blacked-out party venue with UV lighting.

Our team worked throughout the week, dovetailing with the hotel at every stage to deliver all production, creative elements and highlights.

Local suppliers provided everything from additional temporary power, covering a last-minute request to film the event, to the finest details of dressing and decorating rooms and spaces in a fast-paced turnaround every few hours.
