The drp team was out in force at the Troxy this year to help Event Magazine celebrate the 2014 Event Awards. The team didn't go away empty handed on the night either as Chiltern Railways picked up the top prize in the Best Teambuilding Activity category. The drp team also came away with two highly commend prizes, one for the JCB Global Dealer Event and one for Sainsbury's Our Conference.
The Chiltern Railways project saw team members faced with numerous creative challenges to tackle customer service and create strategies for future success. The series of events saw the team take control of Chiltern Railways for a fictional year, be faced with a customer service nightmare as the drp events team, (and venue who were in on the exercise) delivered less than stellar service and finally create a series of posters and videos with drp's own experts on hand. The event delivered excellent results for the railway provider and the judges recognised its businesses impact and creativity. Sainsbury's Our Conference was singled out for a highly commended in the Best Conference category and JCB received their nod in the best Outdoor Event group.
Dale Parmenter who accepted the award on the night said, "We've had a run of award wins in the past few weeks; here, at the Clarion Awards and the C&IT Awards where we picked up Agency of the Year. It's great to win prizes and share the success with our clients but these awards also provide a barometer for the standard of work in the industry and our continued success shows that we are producing work that most importantly, delivers results."
