3D Engraved Awards for Cave Rescue Heroes

3D Laser Engraving Awards that tell a Story

At Laser Crystal we love creating awards that reward exceptional achievements, so we were really thrilled to be asked to design some 3D laser engraving crystal trophies for the Eurotek 2018 Conference.

This international event brings together the leading dive explorers and industry experts. The conference featured an exclusive presentation from the Tham Luang Thai Cave Rescue team and the Eurotek organisers wanted to recognise the outstanding achievements of the dive rescue team with an awards presentation.

The 2-day international event combines a conference, exhibition and a star-studded gala dinner, so Eurotek needed awards to reflect their brand position and create a coveted crystal award that the recipients would treasure.

Creating the Extraordinary Together

Our in-house design team enjoyed the challenge of creating some amazing crystal awards for the dive team, plus it’s lovely to be part of something that had global importance to honour such amazing heroes.

Our creative team designed some visual concept ideas for the client to view, featuring a bespoke 3D laser engraving design which focused around the event logo.

The client chose the stylish Dome Tower crystal award, pictured below, which comes in 3 different crystal size options. It’s a great choice as the dome top magnifies the design inside.

As everyone likes to see their name take centre stage and nothing makes an award more personal to the winner than having their name 3D laser engraved within the crystal. To reflect the enormous ground-breaking achievements of the talented team the winner names were very prominent.

The Cave Rescue Mission

In case you missed the story last year about the football team and their coach trapped in a cave that captured the world stage – as we all held our breath for their safe return, here’s a brief summary of the amazing rescue efforts.

A football team became trapped by heavy rains in a cave in the Thailand. The 12 members of the team, aged eleven to sixteen, and their coach went to have a look in the cave after football practice and sudden heavy rains flooded the cave trapping the group inside.

The group were feared dead with efforts to locate them being hampered by rising water levels and strong currents, and no contact was made for more than a week. The rescue team included the expert British divers John Volanthen and Richard Stanton who found the group alive about 4 kilometres (2.5 mi) from the cave mouth. It was a very complex rescue and teams looked at lots of options for extracting the group.

After days of pumping water from the cave system and a respite from rain, the rescue teams decided to get everyone out before the next monsoon rain. Over several days the team were rescued from the cave by an amazing international team.

At Laser Crystal we feel honoured and excited when we get a brief to create 3D laser engraving awards to recognise such amazing heroes who risked their own lives to rescue others.
