Queensland Hotels Association Awards 2015
Client: Queensland Hotels Association
Where: The Great Hall at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre
The Queensland Hotels Association (QHA) Awards for Excellence Gala Dinner & Presentation – now in its 23rd year – was held at the Great Hall at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre on Wednesday 23 September. 1,000 guests flocked to this annual awards event which recognises the state’s best pubs, hotels and hoteliers. Hotels large and small from all over Queensland participated in the 2015 awards program, which this year saw a record number of nominations. Staging Connections brief was to deliver a spectacular awards night with the main focus on creating a stunning stage environment and engaging multimedia content. The challenge was striking the right balance between being respectful of the 100 year ANZAC tribute and festivities celebrating award winners. The hero of the room was the massive 27x4m curved screen provided by BCEC. Our crystal chandelier complemented the ‘big look’ and added glamour and a celebratory ambience for award recipients and their colleagues. The highlight of the evening was the opening showreel we created as a homage to the ANZACs.
