Gala dinner to support Ekaterinburg, Exhibition 2025 Bid
PAVILLON GABRIEL, PARIS
June 13th, 2018
Project development: 1,5 months
Straight after a crucial presentation in support of Ekaterinburg’s bid to host the World Expo in 2025 at the General Assembly of the Bureau International des Expositions (BIE) held in Paris in June 2018, Eventica in collaboration with Les Petits Français was commissioned by Ekaterinburg 2025 Bidding Committee to stage an impactful gala-dinner to entertain World Expo stakeholders and to create a memorable impression of Ekaterinburg’s bid.
From initial conceptualization through to production, we took care of all aspects of the event: design, set décor, dinner, theatrical animations, logistics, technical and security support.
The dinner was held in the heart of Paris in the Pavilion Gabriel on the Champs Elysees.
Numerous terraces allowed organizers to experiment with lighting and outdoor décor: guests enjoyed making pictures with branded sculptures of Russian dolls covered with colorful lighting.
The entertaining programme was focused on world famous Urals-born Russian entrepreneurs and scientists, such as Mendeleev, Diaghilev and Demidov in a performance which brought a number of famous Russian actors, musicians and singers from Russia to Paris for the event.
The national character of Russia was also reflected in the menu: Russian-style drinks and dishes were designed to support the theme.
