The Platform Project Awards are an annual awards ceremony held by Level 6 Events Management students from Sheffield Hallam University during the Live Event Management module, in order to celebrate the success of the whole year group’s efforts in the planning and delivering charity events. In 2017 Eventscape hosted the event (made up of students Ellie Montague, Gwen Rees, Jasmin Myton and Lucy Parkinson), rebranding it as ‘Portal’ with the tagline ‘Think Beyond Your Wildest Imagination’, and designing a night to not only include the awards ceremony but also to act as a graduation celebration.
The event was a night to remember, with guests being treated to a delicious 2 course meal, along with entertainment including the awards ceremony, a live band, a raffle and a popcorn and candy floss machine! Fellow students, alumni and tutors from the Events Management cohort at Sheffield Hallam were able to socialise, network, and enjoy the night together. Sadly last year, two Events Management students Megan Jebson and Olivia Woodward passed away from cardiac related issues and so Eventscape decided to donate all proceeds towards CRY in their memory.
