The Brief

The Qatar National Convention Centre (“QNCC”) strategic development plans included expanding the in-house event-planning offering into a one stop shop. Including event management and technical production option for clients. This meant moving from acting as a Venue to provision of full service delivery. The intention was to offer a better service to clients and to capture a larger share of the market.

Solution

Lee Forde project managed the internal event planning team and restructured the delivery methods. And,  improving and securing supply chain to provide areas not under the auspices of the venue.

Results

  • The technical production and design were handled in house by the QNCC technical team. The design was managed in house by the CAD team. Additional requirements dependant on clients needs, was procured through preferred suppliers.
  • The first events secured were Qatar Academy Graduation and The College of the North Atlantic Graduation.
  • The main challenge with these project were that they were back to back with little turnaround time. This meant that as QM+NCC were undertaking the event management of both events they could manage the transition between each event seamlessly. And, achieve client satisfaction and excellent design for each event.
  • The events brought in an additional 1.5 million Qar of revenue for the venue. The in-house team were successful¬†through the application of different working methods; under the guiding hand and project management of Lee Forde.

The events were delivered so successfully that the clients immediately booked the following years graduations with QNCC Events team as their Event management company.

The new options and working methods were rolled out to achieve greater success in coming months in order to increase market share and ultimately to increase revenue.
