The Alfa Vanguard Club event was a unique gathering of 1000 plus Vanguard Achievers of ICICI. The concept behind this high-octane affair was crafting a 2-days-long musical festival for a corporate client, with a star lineup of performers, multiple stages and musical formats. The event took place in August 2017 at the Renaisance in Mumbai.
Since the very initial phase of planning, The Moving Heads worked on the lines of innovation; a fresh, light and energetic concept idea which would bring novelty and at the same time connect well with the entire audience Winners. Building on the brief, Moving Heads Events suggested musical fest as a format for rewards and recognition meet – the idea which once again won the mandate of end-to-end event management.
"Right from the first Guest’s arrival, we had a blast of event tunes greeting them from the entrance gates to the registration desk – a DJ console at the arrival area surprised many Guests, who then were proceeding towards one of the registration counters. Official AVC bracelets in white and black awaited every single person, acting as a pass for all the gigs lined up for the next 2 days," explained Farhan Syed Ali, Director, The Moving Heads.
The first part of the day was dedicated to acapella masters – raw talents who thoroughly entertained guests throughout the lunch time and well after it, giving a few hours performances in several dedicated areas. Early in the evening, the tempo was raised a notch higher, bringing in multiple drummers who interacted with the audience. Thrills of the welcome party were already in the air – the pre-function area had turned into a tropical forest space and was full of drum jungle beat when the gates opened for the Welcome Party. With all hearts pounding to the beat, the theme – Garden of Eden was unveiled.
"It was a well-kept promise of a tantalizing tropical jungle, blasting with multiple lasers, alive with plenty of SFX and pumping the best music beats served by a trio of DJs – DJ KAZ, DJ Liz Brown and the main star of Day 1 – DJ Suketu. Mystical trip of the Eden Garden was a completely immersive experience, with a complete masking of the ballroom walls and ceiling – we used jungle theme décor, live plants, creepers as well as rocks-like elements. The island bar sprawled around a big banyan tree, facing a mammoth DJ console inspired by ancient temple jungle ruins," elaborated Syed Ali.
Day 2 started with a business conference, post which Guests enjoyed lunch and musical team building activities till late afternoon. With the evening approaching, the pre-function area transformed once again into a concert star-zone with multiple photo-ops. The 'Wings of Time' Gala Night started with a blast of lasers and lights greeting the awe-struck audience who marveled at the Goddess of Music backdrop – a monumental construction with LED heart and wings, coming alive with spectacular mapping.
A Diamond-shaped stage was sparkling with almost 400 light points installed on the steps as Anuj Gurwara entered the stage as the host of the evening. Shibani Dandekar took the evening’s glamour to another level, joining Anuj on stage after a mesmerizing song performance entry. Wings of Time Gala Night was officially inaugurated with opening remarks of Senior Management and the Bank's top performers received well deserved accolades and applause. Full of fantastic energy, audiences greeted Manasi Scott with band who rocked the night with powerful mashup numbers, making everyone sing and dance along. With guest performance of Anuj Gurwara who accompanied Manasi on stage for a unique duet, the singing Stars introduced the main star of AVC’s Gala Night – the one and only Badshah. The volcanic energy of Badshah’s entry made the audience go wild; the hall exploded with favorite beats frenzy – a complete craziness of a gig, which was the best possible finale for the Wings of Time Gala and entire Alfa Vanguard Club event, which we can now proudly call a Spectacle of Success.
