drp Studio Launch!

The drpteam are working hard behind the scenes as they prepare for the grand opening of the group’s new communications and productions complex, 212. The new studio, part of the group’s now £4.1 million investment programme will officially open on the 13th of June with clients and the press attending the exciting evening’s programme of events.

The building was originally used during the 2nd World War as a facility for housing and transporting Spitfire engines, parts and munitions. The drpgroup’s redevelopment of the studio has transformed it into the largest creative facility of its kind in the UK. The team have drawn inspiration from the building’s original purpose and will be transporting guests back in time for a 1940s champagne reception. A Spitfire plane will even be onsite during the event with guests having the chance to jump in the cockpit for photographs.

The entire drpteam is pulling together behind the scenes to deliver a thrilling and fun experience for guests. Each drpdivision will showcase the latest developments in their field during the studio tour including apps, games and RFID interaction. The technical services teams are creating a stunning evening as the climax to the launch. The spectacle will involve a combination of the group’s services with video, 3D projection mapping and pyrotechnics combining for an unforgettable finale.  

Themed entertainment and special guests from Britain’s Got Talent will also perform throughout the Gala dinner, being held in the imposing Studio 1 and the digital team are pulling out all the stops with apps, games and RFID interaction all planned for the evening.

Dale Parmenter, group managing director said “It’s fantastic to see this event taking shape and all our divisions working together to demonstrate their creativity, innovation and delivery expertise. This studio marks the beginning of a new chapter for the drpgroup with our capacity, capability and creativity increased even further than our already recognised levels of fantastic service.  We want to share this experience with our friends and clients as every part of our studio has been developed with our promise to clients firmly in mind, anything’s possible.”
