January 31, 2019 | Events

ACCIONA’s General Shareholders’ Meeting 2018, designed and produced by APD, has been recognised in the category for “Best Decoration of a General Shareholders’ Meeting”.

ACCIONA Producciones y Diseño (APD) has received the ‘Selección Emporia’ Award, the most important prize for ephemeral architecture in Spain, for the design of ACCIONA’s General Shareholders’ Meeting 2018 held on 30 May last year in Alcobendas (Madrid).

The awards, which are celebrating their sixth edition this year, will be presented in February in Barcelona.

APD has been recognised in the category for “Best Decoration of a General Shareholders’ Meeting”, for its staging of the event which featured natural materials, in line with ACCIONA’s commitment to sustainability.

Taking ACCIONA’s “Business as Unusual” campaign as a reference, it chose a dramatic mountain landscape as the backdrop to the set, made from overlapping layers, to create a setting in which natural materials such as white tulle and drop paper, as well as clever lighting, put the emphasis on the meeting and its participants.

The General Shareholders’ Meeting was officiated by its chairman, José Manuel Entrecanales, presenting the key figures for the year to the company’s shareholders and the outlook for the future.

Once again, the General Shareholders’ Meeting 2018 was a carbon neutral event, meaning that the carbon dioxide emissions associated with the event will be offset by a clean energy project.

EMPORIA Awards

The EMPORIA Awards, which are national awards given for ephemeral architecture and decoration in Spain, recognise creativity, technical execution and success in the different fields of ephemeral architecture and decoration in Spain. They are organised every year by the Association of Interior Designers and Decorators of Catalonia and Veredictas Internacional, with support from various public and private institutions.

There are 15 categories, representing different fields of ephemeral architecture and decoration, which recognise construction and communication aspects such as the relationship between the space and its use, the relationship between the decoration and the brand values, the best technical solutions, creativity or environmental friendliness.

The jury of the EMPORIA Awards is made up of representatives from universities, professional associations, the specialist press and experts from the sector.
