Venue Set Up:

P&J Live is flexible in its nature, accommodating smaller scale conferences and meetings such as this one.

Upstairs on the first floor within Baker Hughes Conference Hub, the conference suites and The View area were utilised. BSHT branded check-in desks welcomed delegates when they got off the escalator, allowing delegates to easily register and make their way to the Conference Suites and The View.

The 862sqm Conference Suite 1 was separated into two spaces, Conference Suite 1A and B/C. Acoustic partitions divide the conference suites and offer varying capacitates depending on conference size and requirement. Conference Suite 1A hosted the plenary talks, presentations and training sessions for delegates.

Our dedicated in-house AV team worked alongside the events team to successfully deliver this event. Two 6m wide projection screens either side of the stage further enhanced the speaker’s presentation and plenary talks along with the BSHT branded lectern and speakers’ table. Conference Suite 1B/C hosted the exhibition and catering area allowing delegates to network with each other before they made their way to the conference suite next door for presentations and plenary talks. Shell scheme booths were built by our in-house team allowing space to exhibit. Catering was also delivered within this space by the venue’s in-house catering team, supplying refreshments to the delegates throughout the conference.

The View is located directly opposite the conference suites. With views over the Piazza, it is a light and spacious area, ideal for hosting drinks receptions and dinners. The versatility of this area meant that BHST could use it as the Poster Display Area, and the Conference Dinner. A traditional Scottish Burns Supper, prepared by our in-house culinary team using only the finest locally supplied produce, was one of the highlights.
