Clyde Waterfront celebrates

The given project brief is - 'The Clyde Waterfront board wants to hold a PR event for the developers, businesses and other important people involved in the River Clyde. You are an events/catering company and want to pitch to win the contract to organise the event. Make up a presentation on your theme, venue and format for the event. You should have examples of marketing, invitations, menus, hall set-up, etc. Clyde Waterfront will judge and award the contract to the most creative but realistic group'.
