Posted: Nov 06, 2011

Qdos Entertainment plc were main sponsors of a major fundraising dinner event at Scarborough's Spa Complex recently.

The evening, billed as 'A Night before the Colours', was conducted in full military fashion and involved three key organisations - The Royal British Legion, who are celebrating their 90 year anniversary, Heroes Welcome and the Yorkshire Regiment.

As main sponsors, Qdos Entertainment plc required a high profile presence on the night and as such adverset were commissioned to come up with a workable solution. Three areas were identified as suitable for attention grabbing displays - the cocktail reception and bar area, entrance to the main hall and front of stage.

A full set of complimentary branded displays was produced as follows:

  • A 3x3 Pop-up Stand with Counter and lights, to be situated in the cocktail bar reception area, complemented by a leaflet display rack.
  • Two 1.5m x 4.5m vertical banners to be hung from the frontal lighting gantry of the stage. Weights were built in to the foot of the banners to facilitate a straight hang and avoid movement.
  • Two 'Sprint' roll-up banners, one to be situated at the hall entrance and one at the entrance to the cocktail reception.

Pictured in front of the pop-up display (top picture) are Damien and Lindsay Mason who were guests of the adverset and Qdos party on the night. Damien is a former paratrooper and was badly injured in Iraq in 2003. Whilst on operation, his helicopter came under attack and Damien consequently took a bullet in the head, forcing him to retire from the regiment. He is now enjoying life looking after his one-year old daughter, whilst Lindsay is a full-time creative designer at adverset.
