HP legacy series: part two

Finding a way to say goodbye to a team of 500 employees after 21 years in operation was a difficult task as the Irish base of an international tech company prepared to close its doors. With many members of staff having been with the company since the beginning, whose memories and achievements spanned two decades, we wanted to give them an incredible night to close the era on a high, and protect the brand’s legacy in Ireland.

Throughout the company was a strong sense of family; of a shared story in the way the team talked about their time there. To honour this the party was about looking back and laughing and about looking forward in anticipation. It was about coming together for one last time.

We designed an evening of fun and great entertainment, delivered in a way that left the attendees with time and space to enjoy one another’s company, with live music, a “reeling in the years” video played on screens around the venue using footage from the archives and footage taken at the office in the weeks leading up to the event, and taking an eclectic approach to the interior design through projections and installations that acted as photo ops throughout the night.


At Cogs & Marvel, we believe that every time you get a group of people together, whether they be staff, customers, partners or consumers, you have an opportunity to strengthen their relationship with you. You have an opportunity to turn passive admirers into an army of advocates for your corporate brand. Cogs & Marvel is an event agency that creates brand experiences to delight in the moment and inspire lasting change.
