ACORN Conference 2016
Client: ICMS Australia
Where: Grand Chancellor Hotel, Hobart & Macquarie's Wharf No 2
For ICMS Australia, Staging Connections’ Hobart team delivered their largest event in Tasmania in which they welcomed 750 of the nation’s Operating Room Nurses for four days of conferencing at Hobart’s Grand Chancellor Hotel and a highly styled gala dinner at Macquarie’s Wharf No 2. The 17th National Conference held by the Australian College of Operating Room Nurses (ACORN) ran from 25 - 28 May 2016 and featured a range of high profile national and international speakers, over 60 presentations, 17 poster presentations, four concurrent workshop streams, six concurrent session streams, masterclasses, mock trial presentations, popup sponsor showcases, and an exhibition with 60 stands spread across the Federation Ballroom and Mezzanine level foyer. All audio, vision, set design, styling, lighting and multimedia content for all events across the four days were handled by the team. The "Winter Wonderland; A devil of time" themed gala dinner was a real highlight. Twenty glass chandeliers, a 20m snaking truss reflective of a devil’s tail, a large ice sculpture and a wintery tunnel complete with a snow machine emphasised the theme and provided a really impressive and immersive atmosphere.
