Nationwide team
Creative agency drp wins ‘Best Event for an Internal Audience’ at this year’s IoIC (Institute of Internal Communications) National Awards 2017, 29th September, at the Intercontinental Hotel on Park Lane in London, as well as winning gold at this year’s annual FMBE (Field Marketing and Brand Experience) Awards for ‘Most Immersive Brand Event’ (B2B/B2B) at ‘Troxy’ in East London, 19th October. Both award wins recognised their work with Nationwide Building Society’s ‘Our Big Event’.

The Nationwide ‘Our Big Event’ was an interactive 5-day conference to help inspire and communicate Nationwide’s future strategy to its peers, as well as creating live interactive exercises for all peers to participate in, followed by live performances from employees, at the NEC arena in Birmingham. Over 14,000 of Nationwide’s colleagues, from across the region attended the ‘Our Big Event’, which was a huge success. This event for Nationwide was the biggest of its kind in contrast to any other of Nationwide’s past staff engagements.

Richard Hingley, Group Creative Director at drp, who led the creative for Nationwide’s event, commented at the IoIC awards, “This event development was particularly intense, however it resulted in an exceptionally rewarding project, and it is fantastic to have been regarded nationally by the IoIC. We feel very privileged to have played a significant part in such a pivotal company-wide employee engagement for the entire Building Society.”

Matt Franks, drp Director of Events, commented on the FMB award win: “We have maintained a strong relationship with Nationwide Building Society over the last 10 years. To involve every area within drp and collaborate with the Nationwide team to deliver such a unique and successful event - that surpassed every single objective and this is something we are extremely proud of. To be recognised for this at the FMBE awards is a real testament to every person involved.”
