True OriGINs – The Scottish Gin Festival
This was a relatively new event and the organisers wanted to bring Scottish gin to a new London audience. After a trip to the venue for another consumer show, Mungo and Guy Finlayson, True OriGINs founders know they had found the right place for their own event. Tobacco Dock’s convenient location combined with the flexible space on offer and the scope the venue provides to grow events were key factors in the decision-making process. The North Vaults are a distinctive and stylish setting for a consumer show and are self-contained while enjoying the impressiveness of the wider venue.
This was an event with an extremely short lead time, so the organisers appreciated the experience and professionalism of our team who helped get everything ready in time.
The organisers wanted to make the festival an immersive experience for their attendees. The layout of the event was based on different areas of Scotland and worked to great effect, taking the consumers on a journey from the moment they entered the building.
The flexible nature of the space meant it was ideal for the seven masterclasses across five sessions. The bars were spread around the space, with the barrel-ceilinged Vaults serving as breakouts for the workshops and masterclasses.
"Having first run True OriGINs - The Scottish Gin Festical in Aberdeen, our aim with the brand was to introduce it to a wider audience. After visiting lots of London venues, we finally picked Tobacco Dock due to it being such a great event space in a perfect location, with lots of potential for growing the brand. Andrew Cameron and his team at Tobacco Dock were a pleasure to deal with and all our questions both before, during and after the the event were answered quickly."
