iCO Supports The Sheffield Cue Ball 2016


The official launch of the World Snooker Championship; The Cue Ball, took place Friday 15th April 2016 at the beautiful Mercure St. Pauls hotel in Sheffield. Not only is The Cue Ball the official launch of the World Snooker Championship, it’s also a fantastic fundraising event for nominated charities, with Sheffield Children’s

NHS Foundation Trust been the 2016 nominated charity. The turnout for the event was fantastic with over £34,000 been raised on the night.

As the new supplier of Audio-Visual dry hire services to Mercure St. Pauls Hotel, the hotel approached iCO to provide the technical support for the event. The initial brief was to provide up-lighting and a star-curtain which had been done years previous.

iCO delivered a proposal that included custom printed graphics panels, flown lighting, projection and up-lighting along with technical support for the evening. iCO delivered the proposal as a sponsor for the event, providing discount in excess of 50%.

If you’re looking for something different for your next charity event, or require technical support, let’s grab a cuppa and see how we can work together to make your next event stand out.
