At the end of November, we were lucky enough to work with a client to produce a local themed progressive welcome event for 400 tourism industry guests. The event offered a great opportunity to bring together producers from South East Queensland to showcase the amazing and varied produce we have available locally.
Given the great weather in November, Eat Street was chosen as the venue for the event. Guests were bussed out to the venue, and upon entry were greeted by specifically curated gold pineapple girls, along with a custom-made BRISBANE sign entry feature. Local canapes and beverages were served in the OpenSky theatre, where looped video’s and images of Brisbane and Queensland were featured on the cinema screen. Following welcoming speeches, an indigenous spirit cleansing was used to move guests to the next section of Eat Street.
Along with more substantial canapes and desserts, the second section of the event featured five local South East Queensland regions, along with producers and chefs from this region. A custom-built temporary kitchen was created onsite to allow local chefs to prepare a smorgasbord of local samples, including charred kangaroo skewers, fresh Queensland oysters, Ungermann Brothers Ice-cream, Mulgowie mini corns on the cob, Luvaberry strawberry dust and more.
To remember the evening, a glittering gold GIF photo opportunity with custom Brisbane Sign props, gold confetti throw offered the guests a fun memento to share from the evening.
Last but not least, special attention was paid to ensuring the event was as sustainable as possible, with every effort made to ensure suppliers used recyclable and compostable items.
