Scentre Group Annual General Meeting 2016

The Project

Staging Connections were engaged by long-term client, Scentre Group, to deliver their Annual General Meeting (AGM) in early May 2016. The AGM was to be held in front of 250 attendees at Centennial Hall, Sydney Town Hall and was marked to be a momentous event with Mr Frank Lowy (AC) performing his final duties as Chairman of the company that he began 57 years ago.

The Solution

Staging Connections rose to the challenge, providing the occasion with a suite of event services; audio, vision, lighting, staging and set design and webcasting.

Mr Lowy’s farewell received a standing ovation from the audience, as the Staging Connections lighting team doused the enormous event space in the Scentre Group’s brand colours.

Media, shareholders and Scentre Group staff attended the formal AGM which featured audio visual and lighting services to professionally highlight and support the communication from board members on stage to the audience. A themed board table with individual visual displays for each of the 11 board members and a mega screen set above the stage ensured clear communication throughout proceedings.

Communicating widely with shareholders across the world, the entire event was live webcast by Staging Connections and will be available for Scentre Group shareholders on demand for many months.

Chris Lewis, Event Director, Staging Connections commented on the professionalism and technical expertise required by AGMs and other events of this magnitude.

“It was an absolute pleasure to deliver this engaging production. AGMs require absolute technical know-how and there is no room for error, this is where Staging Connections’ experience in delivering these sorts of events comes into play. Our team delivered this AGM, highlighting a true hero of the corporate world in style and with the utmost professionalism. We are proud that this was another successful AGM delivered for the Scentre Group, and look forward to delivering many more,” said Mr Lewis.
