We’re out of the blocks for a fast paced start to 2012…

After a well-earned short break over the summer we are back at it – refreshed and ready for 2012 and beyond.  Hard to believe it is already April, this year is shaping up to be another busy one with our calendar highlighting corporate activity, conferences, festivals and live sporting events.

Allowing us to engage the creative aspect of our minds, we continue to work with our established corporate clients on annual events that take us around the world.   We are also thrilled to be working with new clients on some exciting forthcoming events.

In March our team toured the country with the Future Music Festival supplying LED screens for the outdoor venues in each state.  This tour of planes, trains and automobiles culminated at the Melbourne Grand Prix before dashing back to the Gold Coast for another live video project at the 2012 Australian Surf Lifesaving Championships.  It is with heavy hearts, all at Eventco extend our sincerest sympathy to the SLSA community following the tragic event that occurred.

The coming months offer involvement in events at every level – just the way we like it!  We believe in staying  “gig fit” and in order to achieve this our team works across a myriad of event activity, supplying our skillset over many levels and becoming a true extension of our clients’ business.

This year we assisted with Safety and Risk Management at the Byron Blues Festival.  This is an area of increased focus within the industry with more and more of our clients seeking advice on event risk mitigation.  We trust our input provided Showrisk and the Blues Festival organisation with the highest level of professional expertise.

The Eventco Group will take on the role of overall site management for the Blues on Broadbeach 11th annual event.  Transcending the barriers of age, gender and culture, Blues on Broadbeach is one of Australia’s iconic Blues Festivals.  A brilliant line up again this year – come on down it’s free!

Members of our team are immersed in pre planning phases for the fast approaching Gold Coast Airport Marathon in June/July.  We are proud to be continuously associated with Events Queensland on this world-class event, showcasing our beautiful backyard to the world.  This year Eventco’s MD will oversee the worldwide webcast, on-site sports presentation and live coverage.  We welcome back ASICS and are excited to be assisting again with video display over four sites in the delivery of their successful “Run With Me” campaign.

Hard Rock Rocks the Beach Presents Launch It kicks off the Surfers Paradise Festival on the 22nd June and we are delighted to be involved yet again this year.  Some exciting program developments to be announced - stay tuned…

The level of demand continues to soar for the camera production arm of our business.  We are determined to provide our clients with broadcast quality coverage irrespective of the event size and in order to achieve this Eventco has invested heavily in box lens systems, HD wide-angle lenses and additional HD Panasonic 2/3 P2 cameras.  Our highly experienced and passionate camera team, coupled with our HD inventory will enable our clients and A/V production companies to achieve their creative vision whilst ticking the budget effectiveness box, every time.  Our broadcast cameras and expert operators are ready to deliver quality coverage of your next event.

The back half of the year is fast approaching and our team is ready for the active months that lie within.  Until next time…
