W hotel event edinburgh

Location: Edinburgh

Client: Manual London

Date: June 2021

For those familiar with Edinburgh, you may know that St. James Quarter was a collection of dated 60’s buildings. However, the St James quarter has had a tremendous face lift in recent years and is now boasts an impressive collection of modern outlets and buildings, one of which is the W Hotel. This spectacular landmark building has an impressive 14,300 rooms and breath-taking 360-degree views of the city.

On 17th June 2021 this building became the focal point of a stunning light show designed and produced by award-winning The Manual London Ltd. It was important that this light show event made the headlines for all the right reasons. Silverback Event Crew were chosen to help set up lighting on the exterior of each floor of the incredible spiral building. This required an experienced event crew both keen for a physical challenge and technically minded.

The result was an immense light show and an incredibly impressed client. The de-rig commenced at 0300 and the Silverback crew were all treated to a stunning sunrise from a location not open to any member of the public. It’s safe to say this fantastic event was memorable for all the right reasons.

I am so pleased to have had your guys on site today. They were very professional, and no job was too big or too small. They only stopped occasionally when I asked them to, as I felt they must need a break/drink but if I didn’t ask, I think they would have just carried on…… They were fantastic and couldn’t have been more helpful.”
