AVC Media Enterprises shortlisted for UK-wide live event award

AN Aberdeen-based communications agency is claiming to be the only one of its type in Scotland to be nominated for an awards competition celebrating the best of live events and experiences.

AVC Media Enterprises has been shortlisted for an IVCA LiveCom award, for an ‘offshore experience’ event it created for offshore drilling contractor, Stena Drilling.

The shortlisting is in the ‘Award for Innovation’ category and AVC is up against Nokia, Sainsbury’s and the London 2012 Olympics and Paralympics Opening and Closing ceremonies.

AVC was commissioned by Stena Drilling to showcase as, close to life, what it is like to work offshore for the company – simulating everything from the survival training and helicopter check-in, to working on the drill floor, including as as driller and crane operator.

The winners are to be announced on the 24th of next month.
