A Captivating Conference for Global Satellite Communications Company Iridium
Iridium keep their clients flawlessly connected with their constellation of satellites. When it was time for them to connect to their EMEA regional partners, they felt an in-person conference was needed. With our expertise, Red Occasions were there to deliver the very best event production support, to ensure that their conference was nothing short of a triumph.
Landing the perfect event
A market leader, Iridium are constantly innovating beyond the traditional bounds of satellite communications. When a local venue called upon Red Occasions for our audio-visual expertise for the Iridium EMEA regional partner conference 2022, we were more than up for the challenge.

We kicked off the project with an initial site visit to get a feel for the space and find out more about the client’s requirements for the event. We worked in collaboration with Iridium and the venue’s respective events team to ensure everything was considered technically and that we fully understood their vision.
No winging it
They had chosen an awe-inspiring venue space for the event. The Imperial War Museum at Duxford houses incredible planes and amazing history. Home to over 100 aircraft including the iconic Lancaster, Spitfire and Concorde, this venue is rich in heritage. We wanted to deliver an audio-visual experience that would harmonise perfectly with such a fascinating venue space.
The technical solution
To fulfil Iridium’s vision, we provided:
- Set and staging consisting of a 60’ by 12’ full-colour single wrap set, a 8m x 2m carpeted stage with solid fascia and stage furniture.
- Audio system comprising of L’Acoustics speakers, Yamaha digital consoles, DPA microphones & Sennheiser wireless systems.
- Video systems comprising of 12.5K Panasonic DLP laser projectors on to 14’ screen built into the stage set. As well as Samsung screens for relay and comfort monitors for the audience and presenters.
- Lighting systems consisting of Prolights Eclipse LED profiles for a functional stage wash, Chauvet COLORado Q40’s and Philips Showline battens for uplighting and backlighting the set and Prolights SmartBat uplighters to add colour to the entire space. Finally, for a feast for the eyes, we used Portman P1 Mini’s and Clay Paky Axcor 300 Spots to add excitement to walk-up stings.
The day ended in fun – you can’t have a conference at Duxford without taking to the sky! An Iridium-branded aeroplane put on a stunning display and a helicopter showed the guests amazing views from above!
Did Red Occasions fly high?
Iridium commended Red Occasions on both our proposal and execution of the event. The conference accomplished exactly what they wanted to achieve for the day and we nailed their vision perfectly.
“Highly professional, knowledgeable and reliable production company… easy to work with and provided me with a great proposal, suggestions and delivery on the day. I’ll definitely be using again and would highly recommend – especially Jamie Miles D’Arcy.”
