Medtronic Gala Dinner

Client: Gewoo Communication Co.

Where: Cordis, Auckland

Encore Event Technologies took 250 attendees on a wondrous journey, for the annual Medtronic China ‘OP’ Gala Dinner at Cordis, Auckland.

The theme ‘Glory Awards’ challenged Encore to create an atmosphere that embodied honour, splendour and beauty, through unique styling, innovative lighting and projections.

Upon arrival, a red-carpet lead guests past two intricate customised flower photo walls, designed and constructed by Encore for the event, where a medieval King, Queen and Wizard, posed with the attendees. As guests entered the event spectacular custom lighting and styling highlighted the theme. The primary colour used on the night was gold, which is the most prestigious colour in Chinese culture.

Also contributing to the overall splendour of the room was the unique stage setup. A 12m x 3m LED screen took position centre stage, surrounded by star cloth on either side, giving the room an ethereal vibe. The customised stage and catwalk meant the guests could clearly see all the entertainment and presentations, including a traditional Maori welcoming, magic show and a 7-piece band.

Gewoo Communication Co., the event organisers were thrilled with the production and delivery from Encore.

“Without Encore’s professional service and cooperation, we could not have had such a wonderful and successful night for the ‘OP’ Gala Dinner. Thank you for everything again. I am very honoured for this opportunity to work on this event together.” Wind Cheng, Gewoo Communication Co.

“Thank you very much for your support and your team's professional performance. The dinner was a great success. Customers are very satisfied.” Julia Chao, Gewoo Communication Co.
