Client Story, Wood

Wood House at COP26: Nurturing dialogue

COP26 made Glasgow the centre of the world for all things sustainable and renewable, and for two weeks in 2021, world leaders, innovators, campaigners and decision-makers made the city their home.

For our client Wood, an energy brand already synonymous with renewable energy and engineering, this was an unprecedented opportunity to cement their credentials as a thought leader, and to offer their Glasgow HQ as a space for open dialogue.

This became the COP26 Wood House project.

Bray Leno Events reimagined Wood‘s Glasgow office space as a refuge for the world’s leading environmental and sustainability thinkers.

We also developed an event app that helped them manage delegate registrations, complete covid checks, and create a seamless visitor experience to deliver their jam-packed event programme.


Working with sustainable suppliers, our creative team found subtle ways to deliver Wood’s messaging, encourage a positive delegate experience, and create an environment where visitors could work, connect, engage and debate a more liveable future.

With suave check in, panel stages, break-out spaces, a co-lab area, snugs, bars, a fine dining area, and themed meeting spaces both large and small, we created the comfortable, relaxed environment in which Wood was able to host VIPs, stakeholders and partners in style.
