BT Sales Conference uses Holographic Projection

At its annual UK Sales Conference, BT Global Services treated its sales team to an ‘out-of-this-world’ presentation. It wasn’t held on a space ship, but inside a ‘virtual’ computer game.

Held at the NEC in Birmingham, 1,800 BT Sales executives gathered to celebrate their achievements, and to be inspired about their role in building the future success of BTGS. Marketing Agency, George P Johnson (GPJ), created the concept and developed the theme of ‘Game-On’ for the event. The auditorium needed a big stage and the content had to be seen from all areas of the room. To achieve this, an 18m-wide Musion® Eyeliner™ Foil was used.
Some presenters were beamed in and out of the stage and others just walked on to the stage and interacted with larger-than-life graphics that floated around them. The content presented was a mixture of live filming, recorded footage and 3D graphics.

QUOTE: “The feedback from delegates has been fantastic. There is a sense that we broke the mould of the typical sales conference with this event”. – Tim Smart, President of BT Global Sales UK.

“This conference has been the topic of many conversations in the BT Centre”. “I am still being asked how did you teleport those guys in and how did those floating graphics work? Sales people who have been with BT for years have said it’s the best event they have ever been to”. – Neil Blakesley, Vice President UK Marketing.
