The National Boat Shows’ consultant creative director, Tim Pyne, filled Manchester’s G-Mex with 50 inflatable meeting rooms as part of the first annual event for government programme Creative Partnerships.

The two-day conference, which was held from 26-27 November, required an exhibition space for networking on the second day. Pyne was tasked with providing an area in which teachers could meet the creative organisations that service schools. These included companies such as The Guardian, Channel 4 Learning and the Royal Shakespeare Company.

“The client came to us with two months to go and had not done anything like this project before,” said Pyne. “It required a space in which 1,000 teachers could meet the companies that facilitate creativity in schools. They knew they didn’t want a traditional exhibition. By using the inflatable rooms we owned the look of the show and only needed a really short build-time. We turned on the fans and the showfloor appeared before our very eyes.”

Ranch Design, Inflate, architect MUF and Manby were also involved in the project.
