ICON is a global provider of outsourced development services to the pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical device industries. From a small team of 5 people in 1990, ICON now employs over 13,680 people across 93 locations in 37 countries.
For over 6 years, ICON has worked with DV4, as a "trusted partner", to produce and deliver their live broadcasts to their global workforce, who are both office and home-based. We have planned, managed and deployed webcasts across 4 continents, from various broadcast locations in the USA and Ireland. We have worked with select camera crews and AV / production agencies across The Americas, Europe and Asiapac. DV4 has worked closely with ICON IT to design and continually improve processes to manage the security, consistency and distribution of digital materials across the globe to support ICON webcasts.
October 11th 2018 was a landmark day for ICON, as almost 14,000 employees across 37 countries came together for a global culture & values event. Stories (video and live presentations) were shared about how employees are living their values to drive better outcomes for customers, patients and themselves.
DV4 partnered with Icon Plc in undertaking their most ambitious communications project to date. DV4 produced the event in Europe, The Americas and APAC, involving organisation of AV crews, technical teams, liaison with IT departments in multiple locations, camera crews, live webcasting teams, managent of media assets, print agencies and with Icon facilitators in each event location to assist with smooth logistics. This global event was acknowledged by Icon senior management as a resounding success.
DV4 are proud to be a one-stop-shop trusted partner for ICON for world-class webcasting, ensuring they deliver key messages to their global workforce, in a timely, professional, engaging and cost-effective manner.
Thank you for all the hard work you put into making sure our first global culture event was a resounding success. Feedback across the globe from employees at all levels of the company has been overwhelmingly positive – we couldn’t have done this without the guidance, professionalism and commitment (as well as shots of humour!) from you. 
ICON uses DV4 for live broadcasts to our global employees who are both office-based and home-based in over 40 countries. DV4 bring technical and creative expertise to each project, liaising with our IT department to deliver secure, high quality broadcasts which are streamed in a visually engaging manner. I have always found them to be very professional and easy to work with. I could not recommend DV4 highly enough.
