Six months of design, three days of intense discussion

Project stories / EBRD

A meeting of minds

Every year 3,000 people, including business leaders and media, come together for the Annual Meeting & Business Forum of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) – three days of intense discussion about international investment issues and opportunities. The Bank is a major investor in businesses across central and eastern Europe, central Asia and the southern and eastern Mediterranean, and its annual event provides an invaluable opportunity to connect with customers and influencers from across the region.


Complexity and collaboration

We create and deliver everything from the new identity to design for literature, web, event spaces and signage. We develop both decorative graphics and a complete wayfinding system for each venue, a system that must contend with whatever the weather and a few thousand delegates can throw at it.

That would be challenging enough, but we are also responsible for sourcing and directing a range of local suppliers. So we’ve developed deep experience in finding and judging potential partners, then working to ensure a complex set of materials is delivered to the highest standards.

Our relationship with Fivefootsix has gone from 
strength to strength since the first brief 
we gave them. Today, the guys play an integral role in both the strategic direction and practical delivery of our annual global conferences, and we rely on 
their judgement and creativity at every step.

From Astana to Zagreb

Over the years the project has taken us to Tbilisi, Zagreb, Astana, Istanbul, Warsaw. Each meeting must have its own identity that reflects the location and theme, as well as being inspiring and memorable.

Time for a change in direction

A little update from us at Fivefootsix. 

The fast pace of running Fivefootsix hasn’t given us much time to stop and properly think about the future. However, celebrating our tenth anniversary this year presented an opportunity to both reflect and to look forward. And, after a hugely exciting journey, we’ve taken the decision to bring our current agency operations to a close, allowing us to end things on a high, and turn our attentions to new challenges ahead.

Although we’re sad to say goodbye to Fivefootsix, we are also incredibly proud of what we’ve been able to achieve in that time, and the calibre of clients we’ve worked with. Brands like BBC Children in Need, Ben & Jerry’s, Birley, UEFA and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), as well as our own projects, like The Art of Ping Pong, which will continue to develop.

Most importantly, the last ten years would not have been possible without the support of the hugely talented Fivefootsix team, both past and present.

Thanks to everyone who’s joined us on the journey and been part of that success. Hopefully we’ll have the chance to work with many of you again in the future.

If you can, please join us for some drinks at The Art of Ping Pong 2015 launch event, on November 5th at 7pm at the KK Outlet in Hoxton.
