Microsoft Ignite Conference 2016

Client: Microsoft
Venue: SKYCITY Auckland Convention Centre, Auckland
Date: October 2016

Encore was tasked with working seamlessly in three locations across New Zealand – SKYCITY Convention Centre, SKYCITY Theatre and Crown Plaza – for the country’s largest annual technology conference, Microsoft Ignite. Themed ‘Art of the Impossible’, Staging Connections was briefed to provide advanced AV for the duration of the four day event, which attracts over 1200 of the country’s best technology engineers and IT gurus to learn about the latest and greatest software and hardware coming to Microsoft. As part of the tailored audio visual solution, Encore provided live audience polling via Event Poll and live streaming of the keynote sessions.

“Having worked with Encore (formerly Staging Connections) as our AV suppliers for Microsoft Ignite 2016, I can recommend them as competent providers of configured audio visual equipment… and their availability for rehearsals pre-event across SKYCITY and Crowne Plaza for our 2,500-person event during October 25-28 and in the seven month lead up to the event. We were satisfied with the service and communications we received during our eight-month engagement as well as on-site during the event.”Kylie Williams, Senior Audience Evangelism Manager, Microsoft New Zealand
