Encore take home 4 awards at the MEA National Awards 2019

Encore Event Technologies proudly took home four awards, including two of the most prestigious awards, at the Meetings and Events Australia (MEA) Industry Awards on Friday 29 May 2020. The awards were hosted online for the first time due to restrictions relating to COVID-19. 

Encore won both the NSW State and National Incentive Event of the Year awards for our delivery of the Amway China Leadership Seminar held in Cairns last year. We then followed these wins by also taking home the VIC State and National Special Event of the Year for the Virtuoso 2019 Symposium Dinner at Crown Melbourne.

The impressive Amway incentive event was acknowledged by industry peers as a true testament to the team’s creative production capabilities. Amway China welcomed over 6,000 delegates in seven waves attending the 4-day seminar and incentive program across multiple locations. The concluding gala event treated guests to a spectacular experience including a special blended reality sequence created using layered multimedia, holographics, choreographed robotics show with a live performer and gigantic 270-degree screen that wrapped around the inside of the venue.

The Virtuoso event saw guests dazzled by of one of the largest table projection experiences ever in Australia. Themed ‘Welcome to the Emerald City’, every table had stunning, bespoke projections alternating throughout the evening. A total of 55 individual table projections and a stunning stage set enthralled guests. The event was meticulously designed to ensure the guests were taken on a full sensory journey using clever event production, to styling the Palladium at Crown drenched in emerald drapery, green and gold lights highlighting the extravagant details, such as iconic ruby red slippers hanging from chandeliers and the projected yellow-brick road that led to the main stage.

The accolades recognize Encore’s ongoing dedication to producing outstanding event experiences, as well as their significant contribution to the Australian event industry.

Commenting on the wins, Encore Managing Director, Tony Chamberlain, praised the creative and passionate team.

“I want to congratulate the entire events team involved in the creation of both events from concept to execution. They pushed the boundaries of technology and creative event design to create experiences that their audiences had never seen before.

“These awards will inspire us to continue to elevate our service offerings and strive to exceed our clients’ expectations,” said Mr Chamberlain.

The highly-coveted MEA Awards are judged by a panel of independent industry leaders to celebrate excellence and best business practice in the meeting and events industry. The aim of the MEA Industry Awards is to encourage event professionals to excel in achieving their business and personal goals.
