Big Bang South East


Big Bang South East

Each year, Stem Sussex hold the Big Bang event to inspire the next generation of engineers, scientists, technicians and mathematicians; and show students the wide variety of roles available to them out there in the wide world. Gatwick Airport were headline sponsors for the event, and the Gatwick Community Engagement Team called upon the expertise at Outspoken Projects to provide full project event management services, to deliver the Gatwick student experience.

The brief from Gatwick, was to create a space that highlighted the diverse STEM related roles needed to maintain Gatwick's position as the worlds most efficient single runway airport.  The goal was to leave visitors feeling inspired and get involved in the STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics). The space had to be engaging, creative, interactive and informative.

With this, our team designed and managed a creative event space that involved the input of several key departments from Gatwick and included a live interactive theatre experience with audience participation and bespoke video and graphics. Outspoken delivered all of the project management on this activty, pulling together and managing the Gatwick teams through regular steering group sessions. We also ensured a cohesive brand feel was maintained for the delivery of the event to a 9000 strong community audience. Over 3300 individuals visited the Gatwick zone and excellent feedback was given by teachers and students alike.

Client Feedback / Testimonial

Gatwick Airport were delighted with the rounded service and support Outspoken gave us for the delivery of our biggest sponsorship event of the year. From the very beginning they showed a real understanding of the needs of the project; not only from Gatwick’s objectives but ensuring the STEM event was relevant for the audience .

Outspoken really care about the client along the whole journey of the project and always go above and beyond to deliver on time and on budget – for them it’s not about the keeping you at arm’s length but holding your hand and instilling confidence.
