Wateraid 2020 Water and Climate Summit


Connecting world leaders to combat climate change

The 2020 Water and Climate Summit saw WaterAid president HRH The Prince of Wales join leaders from government, business and multilateral institutions to address the impact of the climate crisis on access to water, sanitation and hygiene.

The day-long summit was the first of its kind. And it was our job to give this event the right platform to inspire change.

The setting was the incredible Kings Place near London’s Kings Cross. We delivered the event across different spaces in the venue with the main room taking centre stage. Against a 9m high LED backdrop, VIPs told their story through film, imagery and the voices of those living with the impact of climate change on their clean water supply.

We worked with a talented team of partners including video directors and brand designers to bring the production together, delivering content to engage and drive action.

It was important that the venue and materials used reflected the values of the event. 

The team went above and beyond, delivering to the highest standards, whilst under the spotlight of a large and influential audience. We have received so much positive feedback from all stakeholders.

The Scenes

This was a complex and important project and with a turnaround of just 3 months every detail was ironed out. A rigorous pre-production and site visit schedule led up to the largest and most ambitious overnight build the venue had seen to date.


Working closely with the team at WaterAid our event design and consultancy in the early planning phase, ensured that the look and feel of the event was fully brought to life and gave the audience an experience that matched the gravity of the event.


Making the technical elements work was one thing however creating a space fit for a future king was the job of our event team.  Liaison with the security services, police and venue personal was taken on by one of our specialist team ensuring a seamless experience for key individuals on the day.


One request of the client was to create an event that left the smallest footprint possible. By rolling out LED screens and lighting the power consumption of the event was kept in check. The latest print and display technologies provided a fully recyclable and sustainable solution.

The success of the event is something that we are truly proud of and it’s fair to say, one that we won’t forget for some time to come.
