New Zealander of the Year Awards 2016
Paying homage to the intricate Maori flax weave, the Encore New Zealand events team created a stunning gala dinner for the 2016 New Zealander of the Year Awards. Our role as the audio visual partner was to provide the perfect event environment to support the awards ceremony, live performances and room arrangement for 690 guests. This included all the audio, vision, lighting, stage design and production management. The stage design was constructed using 13 Expo stand panels, re-purposed in zig-zag arrangement to provide a complementary for the content to be projected onto using three 10K projectors. On either side of the centre stage were two 16ft wide screens displaying the videos, awards categories and live camera feed. Being a live broadcast event, it was crucial all audio visual elements ran flawlessly with as much exposure of sponsor logos and branding as possible. It was another successful year, and we’d like to extend our congratulations to all the winners!
