Barfoot & Thompson’s Convention

Client: Barfoot & Thompson
Venue: Vodafone Event Centre, Manukau, New Zealand
Date: August 2017

For the sixth consecutive year Encore (formerly Staging Connections) powered an inspirational event at Barfoot & Thompson’s Annual Convention with 2,500 commercial, residential and property management attendees from all over Auckland. The theme for this world-class event was “Opportunity Knocks” tied in brilliantly with the calibre of guest speakers on the day who came together to celebrate the companies’ highest sales achievers and Garth Barfoot’s retirement.

Encore were engaged to deliver all AV aspects of the event, from stunning lighting to audio and impactful visual content. Central to the proceedings was the main stage, where an impressive 12 m x 4.2 m LED screen was hung via a truss above four ground level 1.2 m x 2.4 m LED panels on either side of the stage, that at times projected doors to cleverly incorporate the event theme.

Anil Anna, IT Manager and 2IC to CIO at Barfoot & Thompson commented, “I can’t thank you enough for putting up such a wonderful show this year. I am really impressed working with both Marjoree and Llewellyn. They were so calm and composed. They made everything possible and always had an option or solution to a problem in a very timely fashion.”
