FAPCO – Powerful Event for a Powerful Plant
How does one of the largest desalination power plant in the World celebrate its inauguration? With a Royal event. FAPCO Fujairah 2 met all the environmental and construction challenges and was built right on schedule. So the directors wanted to share their success with the owners, partners, and general public, a Royal event was the best way to celebrate its inauguration.
Zaman teamed up with FAPCO to create a historic event at the site. The event astonished the Royal guests and dignitaries. Set in a unique tent that was placed on the plant premises, the event was staged to take the audience through a crescendo of stimulations that culminated in a grand opening.
The invitations were created at two levels. Royal and VIP. Both reflected the sophistication of the event by using handmade silk paper, calligraphy, and gold foiling. There were different celebrations, so we created a clever mechanism for layering various messages.
The reception space was created like an art gallery. We wanted to exhibit the achievements of FAPCO and by the same token celebrate the partners. Architecture Graphics showed the positioning of Fujairah F2 on the National Grid. The timeline of building the plant was demonstrated in a huge panel where more than 200 images were juxtaposed with important milestones.
The show was attended by the Supreme Council Menber and Ruler of Fujairah Sheikh Hamad Bin Mohammed Al Sharqui, HH. Sheikh Mansour Bin Zayed Al Nahyan Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Presidential Affairs and various ambassadors . So we liaised with Protocol to enhance their experience by creating a dramatic exit and a ribbon cutting finale that astonished the audience and media. The stage opened to the reveal the plant in all its glory.
The imagery was stylized to create a sophisticated backdrop on the stage and around both rooms. We wanted the plant to look like a piece of art. And one of the gifts was a limited edition fine art print of the stacks.
Every detail in the event exudes sophistication, innovation, and minimalism.
