We wanted guests to step into a bewitching wonderland,” says Kathy Page-Wood from Farm Design Events. “So we turned CTICC’s main banquet hall into a magical ballroom fit for royalty.”

Farm Design Events’ vast experience in corporate banquets of this size, and their talent for creating unforgettable settings, ensured that a stark conference hall became a whimsical, sparkling extravaganza that enthralled the 1500 guests! No mean feat for a 2000 m² room.

Glittering tulle, silver jacquard, majestic candelabra, silver swallows, crystals and fairy lights created the sensation of stepping into an enchanted forest. Tables and chairs were purposely different sizes and shapes, which made each setting more intimate and personal. Smoky dry ice added spectacular drama.
