Kidderminster headquartered creative communications group DRPG has delivered one of the first live physical events of 2021. The event was the end of season awards for football club Wolverhampton Wanderers. In pre-COVID times this event is attended by a mixture of players, sponsors and fans. Due to the pandemic and following guidelines, this had to be limited to the club sponsors only.

The event was still a milestone opportunity to celebrate the club and what it achieved this season. Blending a traditional awards format with full production values and presenting pre-recorded films from players, the event included a drinks reception and a sit-down dinner on tables of six with social distancing in place.

Emma Stanley, Producer at DRPG, supported the event. She said. “We have quite a jam-packed week with events happening. It’s good to get back to delivering live experiences again. Although there are additional factors to consider now, everyone is glad to be producing great experiences for clients again. We are all adapting, and it’s great to be working with Wolves again, supporting with bringing their brand and club values to life.”

B2B Sales Manager, Julian Britton at Wolves, said: "As a club we are delighted to be ‘open for business’ and holding our first physical event at Molineux. Obviously, post-pandemic, our first and foremost priority is safety and DRPG have guided and assisted us all the way through the process. We desperately want to have all of our fantastic fans back in the stadium, but also want to make sure it’s done with safety at the forefront, and this event, which is an exclusive event for our club sponsors and partners is a really good way to test the water and ensure all of our health and safety protocols are in place and provide the security and peace of mind for all of our guests and staff."
