IFTA Awards 2017
We were thrilled to host the Irish Film and Television Academy Awards in the Round Room for the third year running! IFTA is an all-Ireland organisation whose mission is to encourage excellence in Irish Film and Television by providing a platform for inspiration, creative development and collaboration across the entire industry.
The Round Room looked simply stunning for the evening. Our Event Design team went all out creating a truly lavish, glamorous feel throughout with beautiful crystal chandeliers, a star cloth back drop to complement our unique starry domed ceiling and the use of warm toned truss warmers and up-lighting. The IFTA brand was kept front and centre with the hashtag for the evening lit up fantastically on the stage using LED lights, encouraging guests to engage throughout the evening on social media.
Ireland’s brightest stars turned up to the Round Room at the Mansion House for the Awards. Hollywood legends Colm Meaney and Fionnula Flanagan were among the celebs in attendance, along with some of the country’s best up and coming actors and actresses.
