John Danks & Sons Pty Ltd

Conference

Melbourne

Show brief
Co-ordinate the event staging across the conference, tradeshow and gala dinner for Danks' 150th anniversary. Events had to reflect the theme of "Evolution", encapsulating the exciting and dynamic history of the company.

The finer details
Taking 12 months from planning to execution, a project group was pulled together from the Technical, Styling and Design teams. The collaboration ensured seamless delivery of every event element over the five venues and three days.

The execution
Event staging included sourcing roving entertainment for the tradeshows along with AV and technical management for both the tradeshow and conference. The highlight of the celebrations was the "Evolution of Rock" gala awards dinner, delivering a theatrical and fun finale. A stunning city landmark stage set and dramatic lighting created the backdrop. The "Evolution of Rock" theme was carried throughout with styling touches reflecting the stage set and the entertainment line up featured some of Australia's greatest rock acts.

Challenges
Managing the integration of the event theme, audio visual technology, multimedia, creative styling and talent over the different events and venues. Meticulous preplanning and production and the use of specialist expertise ensured a seamless and successful delivery.

Feedback
"The professionalism from planning to implementation was outstanding - with creative flair second to none."
