Permanent Installation on behalf of Golley Slater for Cardiff Airport

By assisting Golley Slater at concept stage with experiential solutions for Cardiff Airport, we are proud to have produced & installed experiential zones across this international airport as part of the government’s new initiative to improve the passenger experience.

The new art and multimedia installations are part of a project looking at ways of making the airport more popular. Visitors to Wales are now greeted by interactive walkways and experiential public areas which celebrate and promote Wales’ vibrant culture, heritage, landscape, products and businesses.

A giant “Welcome Wall“ projection as visitors enter the terminal building mean passengers arriving at Cardiff Airport now have a much brighter welcome. Further along travellers are met with a multi-screen “Beach Wall” complete with wind-beaten bench & old fashioned telescope which celebrates some of Wales’ most famous stretches of sands.

For travellers wanting to give their legs a rest, they can take a ride in the coal-miners lift which is complete with rust effect finish all over.

The Historical zone sees a two-story stairwell dressed as an impressive Castle Turret, complete with battle noises and blue sky above.

….the experience doesn’t end there as those waiting for luggage in baggage reclaim can “take a selfie”  in front of a giant packed luggage bag crammed full of giant props. From over-sized compass, surf board, golf clubs, bicycle and carry mat displays all the gear needed to make the most of a trip in Wales.

The airport’s chief executive, Jon Horne, said “The customer journey has been greatly enhanced, making the arrival experience far more enjoyable. Passengers now experience an exciting welcome to Wales and initial reactions have been hugely positive. People are not expecting it but it makes everyone smile and gets everyone talking.”
