Outdoor Digital Productions (ODP) has today announced that they are finalists in the prestigious Festival Supplier Awards 2023. The company is shortlisted in the Best Visual Spectacular & Best Production/Site Management categories, for its work on the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games Festival Live Sites.

The Festival Supplier Awards are now in their eighth year and were developed to recognise, reward and promote best practise in the outdoor event and festival sector.

ODP is a collaborative enterprise between ADI, JA Productions and Outdoor Places Unusual Spaces (OPUS). Combining their expertise in live production, innovative event technology and cultural programming, ODP transformed some of Birmingham’s most iconic civic squares and community green spaces, into accessible hubs for cultural placemaking and collective celebration during the Games.

“The quality of our shortlisted suppliers is outstanding, a welcome reminder of the excellence and professionalism that exists within the outdoor event and festival industry. We’re delighted that ODP has been recognised for its pursuit of excellence, given the tough competition in its field.”

With a focus on delivery, customer service and sustainable initiatives, the awards are judged by an esteemed panel of high profile industry experts. These include: Harry Guthrie, HG Event Production; Catherine Bishop, The Game Fair; Matthew Phillip, Notting Hill Carnival; Will Holdoway, METHOD; Jo Debs Seymour, AELTC; Saoirse Holland, Raver Tots; Paul Dunstan, Ryder Cup; Kim Bickell, CSG Events; Frankie Tee, EnTEEtainment; Ben Hardy, REM Events; Andy Lenthall, Festival Insights; Jess Noakes, LS Events and Liz Thompson, IMG.

The award ceremony and gala dinner is eagerly anticipated and will be held at The Hurlingham Club on Thursday 26th January 2023.

“This collaboration and ultimate delivery of the Birmingham 2022 Festival Sites was more than two years in the making, and a hugely rewarding one, both in terms of legacy and professional status. I look forward to growing the ODP brand with both John Adkins and Caroline Davis, with many exciting projects already in the works for 2023 and beyond.”
