Brisbane Riverfire 2019

Client: Stamford Plaza Brisbane
Venue: Stamford Plaza Brisbane, Brisbane
Date: November 2019

The Sunsuper Riverfire event at the Stamford Plaza Brisbane hosted over 1700 VIPs and the public, for the crown jewel of the annual Brisbane Festival. Encore delivered a spectacular display of lighting projected into the trees and on surrounding buildings which reflected off the Brisbane River.

Four separate outdoor events and three indoor events ran simultaneously. The first public food truck event was decorated with thousands of multicoloured festoon lights suspended four metres in the air branching out from a central post creating an impressive star shaped light installation.

The VIP event featured an oriental theme. A glamourous red carpet framed by red oriental lanterns greeted guests as they arrived. Artificial LED Cherry Blossom trees provided illumination, while lanterns and golden decorative bird cages were used to dress the marquees.

Lighting around the events provided decorative pops of colour, including colourful up lighting of trees and plants. The Encore team managed all audio to ensure areas along the River could hear the live event which was broadcast live on Triple M Brisbane.

Sponsor logos were projected 3m high onto buildings to acknowledge the support of Singapore Airlines, Virgin, Stamford Plaza and Encore.

What did the client say?

“We are so impressed with the work Encore did to seamlessly deliver events for our VIP guests and the public. It was the perfect way to celebrate Brisbane in all of its beauty.

The styling done by Encore was flawless with every detail considered and executed to perfection.

Thank you again to the Encore team, we couldn’t have delivered this event without your expertise,” Gerard Knight, General Manager, Stamford Plaza Brisbane.
