Having worked with the awards for nearly a decade the relationship between Logistik and MOBO is such that the awards have become a symbiotic process of effortless delivery. For their much anticipated return to London the MOBO’s will be broadcast live with only a thirty second delay straight on to ITV2 as part of a new three year partnership, making it a year of many firsts for the stalwart awards as Logistik face new and exciting challenges.
Working closely with the brand from the off to produce a show of epic proportions designed to celebrate and showcase in true style the very best of British Urban music and culture, Logistik have designed a seamless mechanism of event production and management with the awards in order to produce a suitable spectacle.
This year will see the awards take place on the 22nd of October at the SSE Arena, Wembley with the impressive line-up of performers to include Jessie J, Professor Green, Krept and Konan and Nicole Scherzinger. Nominees walking this years red carpet are a panoply of chart toppers including Sam Smith, Tinie Tempah, Rudimental and Katy B demonstrating just how strong the UK Urban talent is right now internationally and how eager audiences are to witness that talent live from the UK.
Logistik are accustom to working diligently alongside MOBO to create and deliver the best possible show, working on a large scale at pace and across mediums in order to ensure that the broadcast performance equals that of the live show. Using a streamlined team to deliver the final product the process from creation to inception is now second nature to the events management team who are all thrilled to be working with MOBO once again.
Logistik Managing Director James Wilkins has said of the event, ‘it is always a pleasure and an honour to work with MOBO on their iconic event and we hold the responsibility and relationship that we have with Kanya King and the organisation in extremely high regard. The team have built up a relationship of trust and reliability over the past nine years that have almost made Logistik a constant in the production and allows us to work to an exceptionally high level in order to deliver this phenomenal event. It is always great to have the opportunity to work with live performances and have to consider the scale and impact of an event across television as well as live, these are challenges we enjoy facing every year and with this new partnership with ITV2 this year’s awards are certain to be spectacular.’
MOBO Awards founder, Kanya King, said of the appointment; ‘We are very pleased to be working with Logistik once more and for what is astonishingly or perhaps unsurprisingly the ninth year. After nearly two decades we are constantly in need of growth and development and find the confidence and trust that we have in such a versatile agency to be a significant aid to the seamless production of the events. We are very excited about all of the new elements that will be showcased this year as well as the air of history that is so strongly associated with the awards.’
