The Breakthrough Prize approached BWA to design their annual event and gala after seeing BWA’s successfully designed and produced Vanity Fair Oscar’s Party. Breakthrough wanted to create an equally spectacular event, to celebrate the best scientific work and inspire the next generation of scientists. This special event takes place against the backdrop of NASA’s Hangar One, one of the world’s largest freestanding structures.

Breakthrough Prize laureates are honored at a globally televised ceremony, a star studded event of ‘Who’s Who’ from the scientific world. The ceremony is then followed by a daylong symposium featuring lectures and discussions with Breakthrough Prize laureates and leading scientists from across the world.
