We are often asked to provide video for events. Sometimes this is to promote it to staff (for internal team meetings and senior management communications) and other times to consumers and prospective consumers. We are also able to produce video that acts as a record of an event for internal employee education and communication or for external marketing use.
At a recent Hampshire Chamber of Commerce event we had a film crew record the event and reactions of people attending.
The attendees of this event were on a HoverTravel hovercraft trip to Ryde, on the Isle of Wight. Island Flyer is one of two brand new hovercrafts costing £5m each. They provide the fastest Isle of Wight transport service across the Solent. HoverTravel is the world’s longest established commercial hovercraft operator in Europe. Departing from Southsea, the 10-minute crossing was smooth and enjoyable.
The opportunity to travel on a hovercraft that had just entered service was a big draw with local business people, even for those who had sailed (or is that flown?!) on one before. Having plenty of time to network is always a draw for attendees too.
After the short journey over the Solent, attendees had the opportunity to meet and talk to fellow attendees, enjoy refreshments and take a closer look around the hovercraft they had traveled on. Being able to be so close to the huge fans at the rear of the craft was very popular!
People also had the chance to see all parts of the hovercraft, including the flight deck. There was plenty of time for networking opportunities as well before everyone boarded the hovercraft for our swift return to Southsea.
This will certainly be a networking event to remember! Take a look at the video to see what happened…
