Last Thursday and Friday the rooms of Mercer Street Studios in Covent Garden were transformed into the giant, branded Talking Shop as part of BeViacom’s first ever pop-up event. The media giant invited speakers from all walks of the industry to contribute to discussions on the biggest issues facing marketers today. As the owner of three of the most colourful media channels currently operating – MTV, Nickelodeon and Comedy Central – the Talking Shop space was suitably swathed from top to bottom in bright colours and immersive environments designed and decorated by the likes of Alex Noble and James Joyce.
Aside from the great quality of talent presenting their ideas at the conference (our very own Alex Bec made an appearance amongst the speakers) we were understandably blown away by the level of effort and detail that went into the design of the space and credit has to be given to all the creative minds that made it happen. Kudos guys, kudos indeed.
