Ryman Group - Conference & Awards Ceremonies

The Brief 

Ryman Group required a three day conference and three consecutive nightly award ceremonies for their staff from Robert Dyas, Ryman and Boux Avenue. The conferences would allow staff to gain insight into how the group were performing financially, information on the latest product development ideas & key training messages. The subsequent award dinners would reward staff for their dedication, hard work and recognise top achievers within the organisation.


This was the first time that the Ryman Group needed to change the whole structure so the event could take place all on the same site & two separate events needed to be hosted for each brand.


Robert Dyas – 170 staff
Ryman – 300 staff
Boux Avenue – 100 staff


Penguins created areas for the main conference, break out zones and provided a marquee for the award ceremonies. The whole event needed branding and theming in addition to this so several concepts were presented as part of the pitch process.

We provided the following services:

  • Event & Production Management
  • Full production services
  • Sound, Lighting and Audio Visual
  • Agency - All provision of entertainment and entertainers
  • Crew and transport
  • Digital Media
  • Branding Concepts


Penguins were fantastic, we couldn’t have done it without them. No job was too big, they did it all with ease and put on an amazing event which all of my colleagues are still talking about!
