De Montfort University graduates take centre stage

This year Holland Alexander were hired to deliver the De Montfort Univeristy graduation ceremonies as they relocated back onto campus for the first time in a number of years.

During the ceremonies Holland Alexander provided a full graduation event and experience management solution, from designing an innovate stage set to bring the venue to life, to creating a graduation village and interacting with local businesses to provide an even more memorable student experience. The week long event production consisted of 19 ceremonies across 7 days, hosting over 20,000 students and their families as well as University chancellors, staff, stakeholders and key invited guests.


2016 marked the first time that De Montfort University had hosted their graduations on campus and the Graduation Village was created to enable students to enjoy more time on campus with their guests. From stalls and giveaways from the Alumni team, to a pop up hair and beauty salon for last minute touches and specially created photo opportunities, mixed in with food and drink outlets, the area was a hive of activity throughout the graduation week.

Throughout the week long events Holland Alexander also provided full live event technical production management and worked closely with the De Montfort University in house teams to create a spectacular delivery.
