ESC Events was appointed to manage event creation, production and management of the ceremony.
The annual awards, known as ‘The Millies’, honour and recognise UK military personnel who have made enormous sacrifices and served their country with the highest distinction.
ESC Events had 39 hours to produce, build and take down the event. It constructed a transparent marquee around the museum’s 16 metre-long, 100-tonne guns and permanent artillery displays as a centrepiece to the event’s two drinks receptions.
Entertainment was provided by Britain’s Got Talent stars, Jonathan Antoine and Charlotte Jaconelli, who performed Vero Amore with the Duke of York’s Military School Youth Choir.
John Wickens, managing director of ESC Events, said: "It’s an absolute privilege to organise an awards ceremony that pays tribute to the gallantry and bravery shown by our armed forces.
"The challenge for us was to ensure we made the most of the space we had available and create an event that was bigger and better than last year – and all within a very short build and strike period."
As well as hundreds of servicemen and women, the evening was attended by Prince Charles, Prime Minister David Cameron, Olympic gold medallist, Victoria Pendleton, and film stars, Kevin Spacey and Dame Helen Mirren.
