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 almost 41,150 people across 98 locations in 46 countries.


For almost 10 years, ICON has worked with DV4, as a "trusted partner", to produce and deliver live broadcasts to their global workforce, both office and home-based. We have planned, managed and deployed webcasts across 4 continents, from various broadcast locations in the USA, Europe and Asia. We have worked with select camera crews and AV / production agencies in each continent. 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 these popular ICON webcasts.


Each year Icon employees come together for a global culture & values event. Stories (video and live presentations) are shared about how employees are living their values to drive better outcomes for customers, patients and themselves.


DV4 partners with Icon Plc in undertaking these ambitious communications projects each year. DV4 has produced these hybrid events 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, management of media assets, print agencies supported by Icon facilitators in each event location. This global event is acknowledged by Icon senior management as a resounding success.


DV4 are proud to be a one-stop-shop trusted webcast partner for ICON, 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.
