What We Do

A Manor Hill production embraces what we call our “Circle-One” suite of production services. We provide a full “Circle” of professional communications and production services managed and orchestrated under “One” roof. From creative to financial, it falls within our “Circle-One” platform of services.

Many companies boast the narrative of full-service, full-resource and of course “360”. We believe that each service actually feeds into the other naturally, so it only makes sense to embrace a strategy that is comprehensive and dovetails throughout the Live Event Experience – Manor Hill’s “Circle-One”.

From brand development and creative design, to technical sourcing, to professional talent and executive servicing, we craft, design and bring to life your most memorable moments in time – your live events.

Creative Services

From theme development to brand integration, we work with our clients to identify event goals, messaging and milestones for their event experience. We then dive into the core of these elements and creatively design a theme that embraces the essence of their messaging.

We begin by developing an understanding of our client’s unique event.  With that knowledge, we start to create a palette of design through graphics and brand integration.  From there we build-out collateral materials, presentation decks, video and animation support, and ultimately the stage design and how the footprint embraces the theme and drives brand awareness.

Ideation incorporates the various stages of a thought cycle – from innovation, to development, to actualization – it’s an essential part of the design process.  Ideation is the foundation for strategic theme development.

We work with our clients, through ideation and design, to create powerful brand concepts for both individual events and entire event campaigns.  Many times, we use unique styling to mirror a client’s core brand palette.

As the engine used to support the design process, we provide graphic services ranging from style guide development, tactile elements such as  directional signage, window clings, and column wraps to digital components such as web banners.

From script to screen, we are seasoned veterans in all areas of video production. We provide concept development, scripting, branding, on-site event production and editing, to post event packaging.  Our video production team has won numerous Telly awards for video projects.

From napkin to sketch to rendering, we understand that all scenic elements not only have visual design requirements but also must function flawlessly.  We design and fabricate experiential environments – to include stage sets, pre-function spaces and themed concepts.

At Manor Hill, we work with our clients to understand their entertain­ment needs, then negotiate contracts and manage the process to ensure a great live experience.

The behind the scenes glue that holds all successful productions together and allows them to start and end on time with cue-to-cue precision is the Show Directors ability to manage the run of show, direct rehearsals, and provide seasoned guidance that helps to refine the important moments on stage.

In tandem with our graphic suite, we provide custom thematic and branded slide templates, original slide creation, editing and enhancement services, and custom interactive content playback that goes far beyond traditional slide presentations.

Technical Services

Effective communication is about striking the right chord and evoking emotional reactions to your messaging. In order to make the right impact on your audience, you must have the latest in presentation technology, and the depth of experience in all aspects of technical performance.

A Manor Hill production supports all levels of technical servicing. From audio, video, and lighting systems to the latest in show automation technology and staging design. Manor Hill digs deep into our client’s specific needs to attain a full understanding of what the technical requirements truly are – not just what’s in a warehouse.

Manor Hill features the latest in audio reinforcement technology and provides a wide variety of sound applications. Our capabilities range from large scale corporate and association meetings to smaller breakout rooms and tradeshow footprints.

At Manor Hill, we provide the directors, engineers and cameramen – as well as the latest in video equipment necessary to provide the industry’s finest quality image magnification for virtually any size event. We provide high-resolution switching components necessary to maintain quality while switching between multi-media formats.

When transforming a ballroom, tent or any other structure into an event site, lighting is the strongest medium for developing emotionally driven environments. Our lighting systems will provide richly saturated looks to create a wonderful depth of field for any stage set or experiential footprint.

For both your general session and breakout events, record your content and distribute them to a local hard drive, cloud storage or to your existing video platform.  These services allow a scalable recording system with minimal staff to support and monitor records.

Combining cutting edge video technology with creative production, Virtual and Hybrid events provide non-traveling attendees the ability to actively participate in meetings and conferences. What’s more, the same technology may be deployed during shows providing planners overflow solutions and webcast opportunities.

When it comes to “wow” factor, nothing delivers the emotional and sensory impact as the unexpected.  And that is where Show Automation solutions from Manor Hill comes into play. Or more accurately, how it rotates, flies, tilts, appears, or transforms before the eye.

Technical Design aligns the creative and programmatic aspects for an event into a working fusion of systems and methodologies from which plans, budgets, and schedules are derived.

Conference Services

When it comes to planning and onsite execution, there are as many similarities between association conferences and corporate events as there are differences. Understanding the distinctiveness of each is crucial to delivering tailored audiovisual solutions.

Whether an educational focused association meeting for 20,000, a high-tech corporate product launch for 200, or a live-streamed Board Meeting for 20, Manor Hill Productions provides the management and expertise essential for success.

At Manor Hill, relationships are the key to success and its why we invest so much in service-driven talent for the events we are entrusted to produce. A sales manager in a pre-con meeting. A teleprompter operator backstage. A technician in a Speaker Ready Room. Every position on our crew reflects the value we place on professionalism and the trust our customers place in us to deliver on their behalf.

As the saying goes, “You only get one chance to make a first impression” and for conferences that means a flawlessly executed Opening Plenary. At Manor Hill we bring a high-level of production value and attention to these pivotal sessions whether they are designed to education, motivate, entertain, or a little bit of each.

Concurrent Sessions for conferences of all sizes require a specialized toolkit of procedures and organizational processes supported by high-quality technology and managed by industry seasoned professionals. At Manor Hill, we bring all of this together to ensure smooth and successful running meetings every time.

Seamless and reliable networking between the Speaker Ready Room and unlimited numbers of breakouts, digital signage destinations, e-Posters, and streaming channels are all supported through Manor Hill’s scalable SRR systems.

With Manor Hill’s secure online marketplaces, ordering of equipment by Exhibitors and ICW customers is a breeze. Consultation and design support for more elaborate displays and meetings, onsite installation and operation, and full integration of our creative and technical service offerings are only the beginning.

Providing accurate and timely floor plans that conform to facility and Fire Department guidelines are a crucial component of conference planning. From a year out to onsite and from a single General Session to a hundred or more Concurrent Sessions, Manor Hill’s team of highly-skilled CAD Designers create easy to interpret plans and ongoing revisions.

As seasoned event professionals, Manor Hill’s team of Account Executives and Project Managers provide an additional level of support that goes beyond traditional audiovisual services. We supply detailed Production Schedules for managing logistics, requirements and cost management for in-house services such as rigging and electrical, and work effortlessly with outside vendors.

Understanding the importance of accurate event budgeting for any organization is only the beginning. From fully customizable templates that align to a customers specific cost-centers to onsite tracking, daily recaps, variance reports, and pro-forma budgeting, Manor Hill’s approach allows customers to make informed decisions that often times lead to savings and added production value.

Manor Hill Account and Project Management teams assist planners and customers by sharing knowledge and best practices accrued from venue experiences coast to coast. As active participants in site surveys we engage in collaboration and work with facility to partners to realize creative solutions that keep meetings fresh and exciting.

Leveraging our Creative Services expertise, we work with customers to craft relevant and successful promotional vehicles that drive interest, attention, and revenue. No matter how an organization measures its ROI or ROE, Manor Hill can customize solutions that promote a single event, shine the light on award programs, or recognize essential sponsors.
