Leeds Beckett University Graduation Events Win Gold At EVCOM Live Awards

SPARK THINKING and Leeds Beckett University are delighted to announce an award-winning evening at the EVCOM Live Awards 2016, which were held on Friday 18 November at Supernova, London.

SPARK THINKING worked in partnership with Leeds Beckett University to deliver 12 graduation ceremonies throughout July 2016. The series of events won the coveted gold award in the Public Event category. The judges cited the unique transformation of the university’s buildings and grounds at their Headingley Campus as a key factor in the success. The temporary adaptation of the space was considered an innovative and unique approach that allowed students and their families to celebrate their academic achievements in a purpose-built environment that delivered a sense of community, one of the core objectives of the university. A variety of different zones created different experiences and intimate settings that amplified community and family values.

Tracy Commons (Associate Director of Commercial Marketing & Engagement, Leeds Beckett University) commented: “It is a real achievement for our ceremonies to have been recognised through this accolade. Working with SPARK THINKING, we were able to celebrate the success of our graduating students with their friends and families and fulfil our objectives as we continue to support our alumni community in the next stage of their lives.”

Graham Lord (Production Lead at SPARK THINKING) commented: ‘We had a great night at Supernova celebrating our joint success. EVCOM and the venue put on a fantastic event and it was the icing on the cake to receive the gold honour. A lot of our focus in delivering the graduation ceremonies is on creating an immersive experience not only for the students but for their families and the different stakeholder communities. Having Leeds Beckett University with us on the evening to collect the award showcases our continued partnership.”
