Upon arrival, guests met in the courtyard of the Cell Block Theatre for cocktails and canapés before taking their seats. A spectacular table projection sequence set the scene, choreographed perfectly with the opening track.

Popular culinary personality, TV host and author Justine Schofield, designed the amazing menu inspiring Encore’s production services team to develop a dreamlike sensory experience. The audience were transported on a culinary and sensory journey like no other,  incorporating theatrical elements and custom table projection mapping to the food and entertainment.

Encore Managing Director, Tony Chamberlain, and National Sales Director, Michael Magafa, opened the evening by thanking clients for their patronage and introduced Justine to present each course of her exclusive menu.

Each course had a uniquely themed kinetic light show to match the vibrant and fun personality of the food; the ceviche entrée and matching wine saw tables transformed into a beautiful underwater wonderland. As the second course of sticky beef cheek was announced, the room transformed to reflect a rural kaleidoscope of foliage.

The ‘encore’, was a delicious panna cotta which ignited the final animation, a stunning soft pink and white design, wrapped up the culinary experience.

Vickianne Lane, Principal, Flick It To Me Solutions, said the evening was a truly unique experience that showcased the creativity of the Encore team.

“I was taken on a sensory experience – from the food and the way it was introduced, the immersive visuals, the music,  was all orchestrated so seamlessly. It was wonderfully creative,” she said.

Michael Magafa, Encore Event Technologies, said the evening was a great way for Encore to say thank you to their clients.

“A great event is when every element comes together to create a memorable experience. Technology doesn’t make an evening. How it’s applied, does. Engagement and evoking emotion does. Having Justine Schofield curate and present her amazing menu with passion, humour and authenticity simply made it easy for us to create a sensory environment around her wonderfully delectable food. Thank you very much to our guests, the incredible band and to Justine for joining us. And, to our inspirational team for their limitless creativity. We’re looking forward to the next #experienceencore.”
