Dixons Carphone merger – City & media presentations

Dixons Retail and Carphone Warehouse announced their intention to merge their businesses on 15 May 2014 to create the Dixons Carphone Group plc.

Captivent were approached to find a venue and to produce the face to face presentations to the City and to the media. Given the financial sensitivity of the announcement Captivent were required to make all arrangements in complete confidentiality. Neither the venue nor our suppliers were informed of the nature of the announcement until the morning of the event.

Captivent secured the Shangri-La Hotel conference suite at The Shard, giving our client exclusive use of floor 34 of this iconic building.

“I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to you all and your team for helping us with the event at The Shard on Thursday. It was a huge success and everyone was pleased with how it went.”

Not only was this another successful event, but also the first corporate event at the newly opened Shangri-La Hotel, something Captivent are very proud to have produced.
