What to expect

The creative organizations of NEP, Faber and Univate have been merged in Creative Animal, enabling them to optimally deploy their strengths to develop (video) concepts and virtual and hybrid events.

The power of our virtual event platforms is in the global services and teams behind it. The virtual event platform solution is so powerful because it makes use of everything that the NEP Group has to offer. This ranges from our traditional broadcast facility services to post production and a wide variety of media solutions such augmented reality, remote commentary and many more. With our Virtual event solutions we translate physical events into virtual and hybrid events but we are also looking for the added value in virtual versus physical and the huge potential of virtual for our clients.

Due to the pressure on the event industry due to COVID-19, Creative Animal has quickly become a leading player in the field of virtual events. For this we have developed our own concepts with permanent augmented reality studios and our own online platforms.
