When HGA Creative organised Shop Direct's annual conference at the ACC Liverpool, it was determined that the event would be a showstopper. Held in preparation for the retail industry's '13 weeks of Christmas', the company gathered more than 900 colleagues, suppliers and senior management for a one-day event. Including a conference, exhibition, keynote speeches and a spectacular fashion show, the judges were "very impressed" with the agency's ability to deliver such high quality across so many sectors.
