The Morson Group Emmy Awards
The Morson Group was founded in 1969 by Gerry Mason, the father of their current CEO Ged Mason. Today the company has grown from a family home headquarters in Eccles to a group of connected businesses with an outstanding reputation for delivering consultancy, design, technology, screening, training and people solutions. Their businesses include Morson Talent, Morson Projects and Vital; all which operate across the UK, US and Canada. Within these geographies their influence and people reach a diverse range of sectors including aerospace, automotive and construction to name a few.
With the ever-evolving current climate continuing to put live events on hold, it was beginning to look like the Morson Group might have to forgo one of their 2020 calendar highlights. However, now more than ever they were keen to overcome this roadblock as they wanted to prioritise the importance of bringing their brands together during such uncertain times. This then led to their endeavour in finding an alternative solution to ensure the show could still go on.
We were presented with a brief to bring their ‘Emmy Awards’ vision to life and elevate the evening beyond the likes of Zoom to a full-scale production comprising of live music from the likes of Hattie Keane, celebrity guests and remote speakers dialled in from across the globe. The key aim of the evening was to ultimately bring the Morson Group brands together to recognise stand out stars, whilst also spreading that all important festive spirit and cheer to the homes of both the UK and International Morson team.
Just wanted to say another thank you to you and your team for an excellent Emmy Awards! Everyone this end was full of praise and enjoyed the show. Thank you so much for looking after us all. You and your team are amazing.
We worked closely with the Morson Group from the outset to transform their ‘Emmy’ Awards vision into a reality. With multiple components to consider we called upon our full suite of technical and production expertise to ensure that no compromise was made on production value, whilst also making sure the unique glamour and ambience of an awards evening was infused throughout.
A mirage of content included content pre-recorded in Studio A, video messages to the award winners from stars such a Sir Alex Ferguson, live music from the Studio and remote guests from Canada brought in via video link. Each individual component was then seamlessly woven together to make for a vibrant and fantastically engaging show. The ‘Emmys’ were then streamed out live via a purpose-built microsite to the ‘Emmy’ attendees.
Overall, the evening was a resounding success and brought together the Morson group for a wonderful evening of recognition and entertainment.
