Cvent took to the stage first with a comedic plate-spinning routine. A tuxedoed man began spinning plates, but was unsuccessful in spinning all eight.

The routine transpired to be a metaphor for event planners with a lot on their plate. After a video on what the company offers, a real life representative came on stage to explain Cvent's event management systems as the plate spinner successfully got eight plates rotating.

Beyond Repair, a dance company available for experiential and corportate hire, were up next. Decorated in glittering costumes and body paint, the company performed a high-energy routine to Fall Out Boy's Immortals complete with strobe lighting.

Staffing agency Hel's Angels showcased the experiences it has worked on by bringing its brand ambassadors out onto stage. Examples included work on Benefit's pop-up curl bar, Nike's fitness campaign and a Victorian, top hatted man who had come from a theatrical performance at King's Cross.

Performance group Chivaree Circus rounded up the catwalk by attempting a Guinness World Record involving contortion and hula hopping. The acrobat hit 132 rotations, more than 120 the needed to break the record.

The audience then voted on the Event360 Sli.do app for their most inspiring act, an accolade won by Chivaree Circus.
