2018 was certainly an exciting year for Encore Event Technologies. Not only did we rebrand from Staging Connections, our teams delivered nearly 41, 000 events across the Asia Pacific for our clients - from conferences, gala dinners and incentives to sporting events, roadshows and everything in between! We continued our pursuit of the very latest event technologies, like gesture control, kinetic lighting, custom projection mapping, new digital signage products and touch-screen technology, as well as being awarded the Meetings Events Australia Special Event of the Year!
Planning any event involves juggling a lot of moving parts, but the geographical spread of roadshows means there are even more moving parts to keep track of. Taking on such an event can prove to be very effective for you and your team or business strategy, but it requires quality planning from all angles. Whether you’re looking to launch a new product, educate your delegates, raise funds for a charity, recognise achievements or something else entirely, below are some key considerations to produce a successful roadshow.
The Queensland Hotels Association (QHA) held their Awards for Excellence Gala Presentation on 8 October 2018 at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre, engaging long-term partner, Encore Event Technologies to delight the 1,100 guests.
The 2018 NRL Grand Final saw 500 guests invited to an exclusive event at Sydney's ANZ Stadium where they enjoyed a dinner, 2 VIP discussion panel sessions, half time entertainment and post-game wrap up.
If you saw Australia’s own Dami Im perform at the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest, or Lady Gaga duet with the late David Bowie at the Grammys, you’ve seen the amazing potential of this technology to astonish audiences. The technique includes a Holographic Mesh Screen - an invisible, metallic coated screen that when hung on your stage becomes a vehicle for 3D content to appear in thin air. It is unique because it doesn’t require any special rigging or reflective floor space to project onto, and can be used in most venues.
The right technology can take your event from good to great. It can help you create immersive, engaging events that everyone talks about and help you better communicate and connect with your audience. It can wow your audience during a presentation, turn entertainment into a piece of art, enhance stage sets to become amazing visual experiences, or engage your audience by making them active participants.
Virtual Reality (VR) is a hot buzzword in both technology and event circles right now. Like most new technology, it takes some time to understand all the possible applications and determine the best uses for each industry.
See how we used custom table projection mapping to create an underwater dining experience like no other; delivered technical solutions to give over 1500 guests at this year's Flight Centre Ball a new, dynamic and visually spectacular experience; and in it's 11th year we delivered a first at this year's Men In Black Ball held in Perth!
Imagine seeing a lobster crawl across your lunch plate, waves crashing against your wine glass and schools of fish swimming beneath your plate as you dine. It’s an unforgettable experience that would last a lifetime and that was exactly the brief to Encore Event Technologies.
