CINZ Meeting 2017
Client: Conventions & Incentives New Zealand
Where: The Langham Auckland
Staging Connections have amped up their premium concept design capabilities at the Conventions & Incentives New Zealand (CINZ) Gala Dinner recently, exhibiting custom hexagon-shaped screens onstage at this year’s event. The impressive visual displays ensured the CINZ brief was reflected strategically throughout the space, and complemented the stunning interior decorations which tied in the ‘mosaic’ theme beautifully.
From the moment the 650 industry guests entered the elegantly-lit Crystal Ballroom in The Langham, Auckland, right up until their last spin around the dancefloor, attendees were suitably dazzled and mesmerized with the unique set design, vision, lighting display, multimedia installations and stunning visual content.
Staging Connections have worked closely with CINZ for eight years, and as such, were given full creative licence to design the event. The annual Gala Dinner is specifically to host buyers locally and internationally to secure future business, so space for guests to move around the room and to network with ease was a key element to its success. The Staging Connections team created three stages within the room to keep the evening flowing, and maintain guests’ interest and engagement.
CINZ hold the dinner to showcase to international guests what the New Zealand conference and incentives industry has to offer, and this year did not disappoint. Heather Cornish, CINZ Event Director, later said of Staging Connections’ involvement, “Just wanted to send you a formal note to say THANK YOU for your amazing support of MEETINGS – we really appreciated it. Your personal commitment is very much appreciated. As a sponsor, you play a crucial role in the success of this project - we simply cannot pull off MEETINGS to the standards we aspire to without your generous support so thanks again.”
