CASE STUDY | Ballantine's Orbit Tour
At Nine Yards we are able to translate creative concepts into inspirational brand-building events that really work. Experiential marketing agencies rely on our ability to plan and deliver the complex technical logistics to get large groups of people engaging with brands in a live setting. Companies we have worked with include KLP, Iris and Sponsorcom on events for Snickers, Adidas, Virgin, Budweiser and Cadburys.

OUTDOOR PUBLIC EVENTS
We have worked on some of the nation’s most iconic events, including The Golden Jubilee, the Millennium New Year’s Eve Party on the Thames and VE Day.
We have the capability to design and manage large-scale events. This includes working with design teams, liaising with stakeholders, negotiating permissions and contracting production staff; as well as co-ordinating the detailed delivery of the event itself, from logistics and schedules to equipment and services, from supplier contracts to Health & Safety. The organisational structure of large projects varies, and production companies such as Ten Alps and Unusual Services sometimes contract us to undertake production or site co-ordination as a project in itself.
CASE STUDY | T4 on the Beach 2010
We work with television directors, producers and design teams to help them deliver their creative concepts. Our wide-ranging experience of organising music events and award ceremonies enables us to ensure the delivery of the technical aspects of the live event. We manage the design process, produce and monitor budgets, contract staff and suppliers and stage manage the show itself.
At large outdoor public events we co-ordinate the site infrastructure and services required by broadcasters and other media agencies. We also handle the necessary permissions. Our television work includes shows such as Fashion Rocks, the Brit Awards, Smash Hits Pollwinners’ Party and Kiss Awards.

CONCERTS AND FESTIVALS
Our expertise in putting on large music events is second to none. We have project managed more than one hundred outdoor shows over the last twenty years. Our work falls into three broad categories. We handle the site infrastructure, manage all aspects of show production and act as the central point of stakeholder co-ordination.
We have a thorough understanding of the technical disciplines involved in show production, including lighting, sound, video and rigging. We are also experienced in liaising with large and complex stakeholder groups including sponsors, media and television companies. Nine Yards has worked on many concerts and festivals including Connect Festival, Radio 1 One Big Weekend and Robbie Williams at Knebworth.
CASE STUDY | The Midland Bank Arena
We have created a number of architecturally-arresting temporary buildings for clients requiring a unique venue. As well as specifying the building itself, we also work to design and configure the internal spaces to fulfil the client’s requirements for the event planned. Our work has ranged from a walk-through visitor attraction (the Star Trek Exhibition in Hyde Park) to a five thousand capacity venue with two cinema spaces (Skyscape Theatre).
The buildings have been used for one-day and long-term events. Where the use has been extended, we have managed the process of obtaining necessary planning consents.
CASE STUDY | Smash Hits Pollwinners' Party
Our touring work falls into two areas; we work with brand agencies to create and deliver touring brand experiences and we work with artist management companies on touring music productions.
We have produced successful touring productions for a number of companies, including EMAP. They commissioned us to design and project manage a month-long, multi-artist arena tour to launch the ‘Box TV’ channel.
We have also been contracted by artist management companies to manage touring productions. We put together tours for The Beautiful South across North America and Europe ranging from their early theatre tours, to arena shows, to a series of stadium dates.
