Red carpet on MTVs red carpet

The MTV Europe Music Awards were broadcast live from Berlin's 02 World arena last Thursday on bonfire night. Red Carpet flew to the host city to review the event which was hosted, once again, by Katy Perry.

The dominant EMA theme was the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall and U2's surprise performance with rapper Jay-Z at the Brandenburg Gate. Oh - and David Hasselhoff's sequinned jacket.
  
Naturally, events like this are about the music and the performers. 

Sat Bal spoke to them as the talent filed onto the red carpet. (9 Nov '09)

Day of reckoning

 

The pulling power of international bands needs venues -and facilities- to match their prestige. Last night, Birmingham's LG Arena did just that as American rockers Green Day took to the stage having delivered 30,000 fans to two sold out shows at the venue, breaking attendance records at the brand new LG Arena within days of its opening. Sat Bal experienced the LG's hospitality offering with sumptuous dining at its Sanctum restaurant before watching Green Day in action from the venue's new premium Showdeck.(29 Oct' 09)

The Spanish acquisition

We didn’t expect Alicante to enter Red Carpet’s lexicon of airports anytime soon but neither had we experienced the great strides in corporate and leisure hospitality taking shape in south-east Spain.Sat Bal took in the view from InterContinental's 5-star La Torre resort. (20 Oct '09)

WBPO '07: Client - Madonna Ciccone Event Wedding Venue - Skibo Castle, Scotland

"Madonna came to us via a recommendation. I'd organised a wedding for her friend several months earlier. The friend told me that Madonna would be in touch but I didn't hear anything until about six weeks later.

"It was then that Madonna called me on her mobile about her wedding plans. Privacy was one of the biggest issues and she said that she would require a very private venue for her wedding. I suggested Skibo Castle.

Navigation systems

The corporate hospitality and events industry mushrooms across the length and breadth of the nation.  For most of us this often means a single month can present a very varied diary. An awards ceremony at Grosvenor House? A hotel launch in Manchester? An exhibition at Glasgow's SECC? Followed, perhaps, by a team incentive event in the New Forest. For those organising the events, time is vital. The advent of satellite navigation reduces  waste of professional time (and fuel). As with so much technology the range on offer can be confusing. Here, we look at some of the entry-level choices that can help business drivers get from A to B on time and with minimal road stress.  Sat Bal  (25 Oct '07)

Upper class act - Flight Review

Gatwick airport on a Sunday morning isn’t for the faint-hearted as Sat Bal finds. Parents and recalcitrant kids, iPod shufflers and baggage-heavy tourists jostle to make today’s airports indistinguishable from shopping malls at sale time. (5 Jul 07)

WBPO 2006: Client - Interior Designer Location -Northants, UK

"Event clients come to us with varying levels of what they want from their event. Some will have no thoughts on the visual detail while others are very specific. This brief from an interior design client was, however, specific and not surprising given the client's field. Read more

WBPO 2006: Location - Venice Event - Dinner Dance 400 Guests

"Here we transformed a palazzo in Venice ready for a dinner and dance. The several hundred invited guests arrived in 30 private water taxis. As for equipment every piece, from glassware to a marquee with a transparent roof, was transported on the Grand Canal by barge. It took two days to set this up and all the furniture came from England and a local restaurant did our catering.

"The event involved a whole weekend of parties. We brought in the jazz band from New Orleans and it was actually the original band which featured in the Bond film Diamonds are Forever.
