Zak’s World of Façades

International conference series lands in Manchester

Zak World of Façades is an international conference series on façade design & engineering. The events have attracted over 25,000+ delegates across its 75 completed editions. This one day conference is currently being organised in over 30 countries around the globe. Neuron provided full production for the first edition in Manchester at the prestigious Hilton Deansgate Hotel production managing a full audio, lighting, rigging and video package.

The event posed some exciting challenges with the organisers wanting to split the room into two separate conferencing spaces for the afternoon session to maximise the number of speakers. Neuron planned for this as part of the event design allowing for the rooms’ technical production packages to be seamlessly split and then re-combined during short breaks in the programming.

After the success of the event, Neuron was also tasked with production managing the first Berlin event later in the year.
