We have so many events happening everyday that we rarely get time to share the end result! In this monthly blog post we round up some of the events we have worked on in the last month to help inspire and amplify your event know how!

We kick off this post with 'The Hunger Project Fundraiser’ in Sydney for our client - the lovely Emma Isaacs, CEO of Business Chicks. We turned an old run down garage in Sydney (that incidentally was formally owned and used by Frank Lowy to store his classic car collection) into a beautiful dinner venue.

Recently our mantra seems to be ‘any event space can be your event space’ and this event just goes to prove what can be achieved with a little imagination (and a lot of lighting!)




Next up is some child like fun from a Carnival inspired cocktail dinner. This event was hosted in the Barossa Novotel Resort after a two day corporate conference in the Barossa Valley.

We couldn't think of a better way to end a conference than with all these lollies and popcorn! Our talented event stylist Alana turned this amazing look around in just under 2 hours flat which is incredible or maybe it was simply down to the sugar rush!



Now if you are looking for some colour theme ideas for your next event then check out this fabulous purple styling.

Held at the Crown Plaza Adelaide this cocktail party was themed using purple as the main accent colour for the floral and lighting which was complimented with crystals to create this opulent look.

Next we jump to Perth for some poolside action at the newly redeveloped Crown Perth! Together with DG Global, we staged the welcome party for ISPS HANDA Perth International Golf event.

It was a challenging brief as we had to be incredibly careful not to damage the newly renovated pool area whilst securing the Perspex stage in place. We also had to be absolutely sure it was a safe platform for the band to perform on.

We take safety extremely seriously and this event took a lot of pre planning, all worth it in the end as the area looked incredible with that Perspex stage reflecting lighting and creating the wow factor! We have said it once and will say it again; it just shows that any space can be your event space!


In October we were also proud AV sponsors of the Black Horse Foundation dinner held at Australian Technology Park. It’s a great event space which has a fantastic industrial feel, great for large scale events! The evening was a huge success with over $80,000 raised for a range of charities including Redkite, the Cerebral Palsy Alliance, Fareshare and the Beacon Foundation. Check out the boys in black hard at work behind the tech control desk! #weloveourcrew


Viva Las Vegas was this year’s theme for the annual United Convenience Buyers Conference held at Jupiter's Gold Coast HotelTo create this effect we had huge blow out projections directly onto white drapes on the sides of stage and on a cyc backing the stage. Each section was 6 meters high and 20m wide across the entire stage wall of the room. We had to re-edit all of the video content to fit the ratio of the projection area which took a little time but was worth it to create an awesome effect that transported guests right to the Vegas Strip! 


And finally we teamed up with our venue partner Hyatt Hotel Canberra for an exciting Wedding Experience Day held in the Federation Ballroom at the Hyatt in Canberra.

Local brides had the chance to visualise their day with tables and room styling by our talented team from Canberra. They also watched a bridal runway and were treated to some delicious food from the Hyatt’s wonderful chef! Check out the images below, we love the summer centrepieces featuring blossom, willow & roses!

October was a great month with some amazing events staged by our teams around Australia. We look forward to a busy November and to share the results with you come December!
