The 2019 Dexar Convention
Each year the team have the pleasure of working on a three-day conference in some of Australia’s most beautiful locations.
The 2019 Dexar Convention, held in the gorgeous setting of Kingscliff, in the Northern Rivers region of NSW, challenged the team to provide AV across three separate and unique venues, after carefully transporting all production equipment from Sydney on an 8-tonne truck.
Eight technical staff from Canberra, Sydney, the Central Coast and Brisbane, were brought in to assist with the production, led by Senior Production & Account Manager, George Kastoun. The team provided all production across the venues including, Vision, Sound, Draping, Staging, Logistics and all production equipment.
The 250 pax event, held across three venues – Babalou (Welcome Party), Fins at Plantation House (Jungle Party) and Peppers Salt Resort & Spa (Convention) – each required a different look and feel; the team carefully planned the equipment taken up to deliver this. Features to ‘wow’ guests included a game show with light up podiums which buzzed when contestants struck them, dance floors, coloured up lighting in the trees and in/outdoor entertainment.
With only 3-months preparation, the team delivered an exceptional event experience.
“The care and the passion you have shown for this event is without compare. And we thank you for ensuring sponsors had power, that the room lighting looked incredible and the little touches that made the difference. We could not put on an event of that calibre without an AV team that was as committed as we are.”
“The team were so professional, so dedicated, and passionate. You also have such gorgeous hearts and souls. Once again, it has been a pleasure to see you work your AV magic to deliver us a high quality event, loved by all.”
“Your team are simply the best at whatever you do. Your level of knowledge and expertise is unmatched, but where you all constantly excel is your communication, dedication and service focus … plus you are great blokes.”
Many thanks to our client for their considerate and welcomed words of appreciation. It was our pleasure – looking forward to the next one. From the Austage Team!
