READ THE FULL STORY...
Purvis Marquees were contacted by Genie Events who were looking for an event contractor to work with them on an extraordinary event at the Macallan Distillery. This was for the launch of their spectacular new distillation facility and visitor centre in the beautiful Scottish countryside of Charlestown of Aberlour.
Purvis Marquees management team worked very closely with Genie Events to build an experience that the International guests would never forget.
The primary structures were designed and installed on a scaffolding understructure, to level off sloping grounds. In addition, we created an adjoining large-scale catering facility, delivery ramp, balcony canopy with a transparent roof, 114m blackout walkway, a vast array of internal bespoke finishes and supporting structures.
Over the week leading up to the event, the experience grew until it was transformed into an enchanted oak forest. Guests were presented with a vast wall of greenery, and in the centre, a small hobbit door which led them through a rock clad tunnel and into the central dining area. What awaited them certainly had the ‘WOW’ factor. Not a single part of the surrounding structures could be seen, just elegance, mystery and enchantment!
Genie Events needed us to build and dismantle everything in a very tight timescale to reduce disruption to the existing facilities and with great care to the grounds. Everything went smoothly with the Genie Events management team and client very impressed with the efficient organisation of site work and our safety mindset.
We were extremely proud to be involved in an event so close to our Scottish routes, and a brand as well-known and respected as ‘The Macallan’. Genie Events lived up to their renowned reputation for events of this scale, providing everyone with a once in a lifetime experience.
Purvis Marquees excel on contracts like this, it’s where our management team and site crews are at their best.
We hope you have recovered from Aberdeen!
We just want to say a huge thank you for all your hard work at our event for The Macallan.
We had an overwhelming positive response, with over 500 pieces of coverage. The clients were extremely happy, we have attached the letter of thanks from the Managing Director.
From our perspective, it felt that every single member of crew was invested, worked above and beyond what was expected, you were all there when we needed you and you all worked really hard. It was a superb atmosphere on site and great fun!
We appreciate your time and effort with this event and we know that we are only as good as our crew!
So, thank you for making this event such a massive success, we couldn’t of done it without you all.
We hope to see you soon!!
(NB If you can take the time to send to each individual crew member, we would appreciate it)
I’m writing to thank you for delivering a truly stunning opening event for The Macallan distillery, and for being a fantastic partner to work with.
Right from the start, our teams have worked really well together, with both parties communicating openly, showing a can-do attitude, and establishing a positive working atmosphere. Genie’s capabilities from creative concept generation to detailed execution have been extremely impressive, and as a result, we have collectively delivered an amazing launch event.
As you know, I experienced it three times and was totally delighted with what I saw. The whole concept of a gradual reveal worked brilliantly, and every aspect was executed perfectly. From the drinks reception to the oak forest, the dining experience, the sonnet Lumiere on Easter Elchies House, the light show on the distillery, the band, the stills light show, and everything else. Every aspect was stunning, and they all joined together to create a beautiful, classy, entertaining and enjoyable event which was perfectly in keeping with our brand positioning. The feedback I’ve had from guests is amazing, with many seasoned event-attenders saying it was the best thing they had ever been to.
But it wasn’t just the result that was exceptional; it was how it was delivered too. You and your team are very impressive. The fact that everyone was completely invested in making our launch a success was very clear, and as a result the amount everyone gave of themselves, especially you, was truly impressive.
I really can’t thank you enough for what you delivered and how you delivered it. This was a huge moment in our history and I am delighted that we picked you as our partner. I would have no hesitation working with Genie again or recommending you to others.
Managing Director, The Macallan
