We were delighted to provide and facilitate media documenting and support for Bourns Ltd covering a series of events over three days.
Bourns, Inc. is an American electronics company that develops, manufactures and supplies innovative electronic components for a variety of industries including automotive, industrial, instrumentation and portable electronics.
Within Bourns Group, internal “kaizen” processes and a global competition engage all employees to consider and develop innovative and workable process-improvements. Each year the sector and divisional winners from around the world attend an expenses-paid event to present their ideas and thus compete for the overall winner’s prize.
For the 2017 Awards (held 2018) the global venue chosen was the UK where Bourns Ltd, who, based in Bedford, hosted and entertained all winning teams and Group executives.
Across the event we delivered reportage documenting of:
- informal welcome event with traditionally British themes of entertainment, beer and Royalty!
- presentation visit to base at Bedford Heights covering networking and showcasing the high-tech silicon-chip wafer fabrication plant, operating in full clean-room protective clothing and protocols.
- the formal Presentations and Awards Event at The Sculpture Gallery, Woburn Abbey (plus facilitation of video recording covering presentations, highlights and key-person interviews)
- a social day-trip to see the sights of Cambridge including a guided tour of King’s College chapel and 100+ people punting.
For many attendees, this was not only their first visit to the UK but for some in the far-East, the first time they had left their native countries, so having a comprehensive set of imagery to document and celebrate was an important part of their experience.
In addition to working with selected video producers to document the event, we also sourced a partner company to produce video and graphics-led info-films to be shown as part of the factory tours and to support future communications Bourns Ltd projects.
Here is a selection of the images captured for Bourns Ltd over the programme of events.
It was a real pleasure to work with the Bourns team throughout this event as they delivered a tremendous programme before handing on to Hungary for next years celebration.
