Graduation Ceremonies are a highlight of the University year and a proud day in the life of those who are graduating. In 2017 Staging Connections for the first time collaborated with Flinders University to deliver an event befitting the importance of the occasion.
The Staging Connections Adelaide team was engaged to transform the look and atmosphere of the Alan Mitchell Sports Centre, normally home to the University’s sporting clubs, to a graduation venue imbued with prestige and ceremonial ambiance for the 1000+ graduands and guests.
Fulfilling the event brief, Staging Connections provided a comprehensive event staging solution, including installation of black draping around the perimeter of the room, stage construction, mounting of digital screens, lighting and audio visual support, and provision of camera operators for live streaming at the venue and across the university precinct including the central Plaza super screen.
The ceremonies were also webcast via the Flinders University website, enabling family and friends unable attend in person the opportunity to share in the excitement of their loved ones being presented with their testamurs, via a rich virtual experience.
“Staging Connection were very professional and great to work with. Dan, Tim and the team were friendly, approachable and knowledgeable. They engaged in a collaborative approach with us throughout the event planning, implementation and debrief; and provided great suggestions and ideas for improvement for the event moving forward.”
