Last weekend we had the brilliant opportunity to design and construct the CBBC and CBeebies interactive event space at The Digital Kids Show.
As part of our ongoing relationship with the BBC Spinning Clock were asked to create an amazing interactive space for CBBC and CBeebies at the Digital Kids Show at Event City Manchester.
The stand featured the never seen before playtime island 3D model from the CBeebies Playtime Island App. Visitors had the chance to use the gaming app – which includes games based on Furchester Hotel, Topsy and Tim, and Peter Rabbit – on the IPad Kiosks that surrounded the Playtime Island display.
The digital event also starred a Blue Peter Crafting Zone, the CBeebies Story-time Corner with special celebrity hosts, a Games Arcade, the Parents Internet Safety Zone and the BBC’s Microbit Zone where young programmers could learn to connect a desktop PC to all kinds of amazing robots, vehicles and unusual game controllers including bananas and ping pong rackets!
But the fun didn’t stop there – at the CBBC HQ presenter’s desk children had the opportunity to meet CBBC’s very own Hacker T Dog! Hacker happily greeted guests and gave children a chance to be a special CBBC presenter for the day. On Sunday visitors were even treated to guest appearances from Dick and Dom!
Spinning Clock collaborated with BBC Children’s team to showcase their exciting digital products at the Digital Kids Show. Our main job was to design and build a bright backdrop for the event featuring their viewers favourite characters and CBeebies and CBBC branding. Our project management team planned the layout of the stand and provided stand-out props and furnishings that best presented the interactive technology CBBC and CBeebies pride themselves on.
It was a wonderful event and we really enjoyed working with CBBC and CBeebies to create a varied, vibrant and truly digital experience.
Here’s what the BBC thought of the event:
‘The event went extremely well and our stand was definitely visually impressive! We had a fantastic turnout on the stand and we managed to reach and interact with our audiences and teach them all about our digital offering! Thank you to the Spinning Clock team for all your help.’ – BBC
