Gold Coast Airport Marathon
The start of July kept the team at Eventco busy with the production requirements of this years Gold Coast Airport Marathon and supporting events. Months of pre planning enabled seamless management of the exhibition, gala dinner, lunches and on course production requirements. Eventco's MD directed the live sporting coverage during a "marathon" eight hour webcast and big screen broadcast. Check out the Gold Coast Airport Marathon website for links to the live coverage. Partnering with top of class RF digital camera link supplier BNC, Eventco presented three roving cameras, two static and two on–board helicopter cameras proving a new benchmark in the sports presentation for this prestige race.
The audio production of the two day festival was once again managed by Eventco, utilising some of the best operators and systems available in co-operation with ELS. Early mornings are something that is often a polar opposite to our industry, yet once again under the watchful eye of Jim, Greg & Dave, the competitors and spectators enjoyed the impact of well balanced sound coverage across the entire site. We trust the visiting African Commonwealth Games Delegation enjoyed the Gold Coast Airport Marathon as much as we did! Fingers crossed for November's announcement of the Commonwealth Game Bid. This year saw an additional supply of three LED screens across the Gold Coast enabling the delivery of the ASICS initiative - Run With Me Campaign. Pre recorded messages of support from family and friends were triggered by timing mats and displayed on the screens. What a concept… well done ASICS! Great feedback from runners, spectators and stakeholders a like.
It's now 'heads down' for the team as we fast approach the excitement of the MercedesTrophy Golf Tournament, a signature event in our annual calendar.
