Maurice Blackburn – Beta Bar 100 years celebration

Maurice Blackburn
100 years celebration
@Beta Bar

Beta Bar on Castlereagh Street in Sydney has to be one of the most stunning and original venues around. The six meter high ceilings along with raw textured brick work really give the you a sense of architectural history that oozes style and elegance. QCE have had the pleasure of producing over 50 events in this space and we find that highlighting this architecture with battery powered LED up lights really transforms the space incredibly. The company colours were matched to make the entire venue branded for the night.  

 To celebrate the amazing milestone of 100 years, we really wanted to brand this information in the room in an elegant way. To achieve this we custom designed logos to be projected on both sides of the room with 5000 Lumen Panasonic projectors.

The proudly Australian company featured an incredible and memorable indigenous performance by theatrical company Giralang Guwal.  

 The formalities and keynote speaker sounded crystal clear because of the new technology Californian built EV PA that was installed. During the rest of the evening a DJ based trio preformed to keep the mood progressing in a positive direction. 

 Beta Bar staff yet again provided amazing Greek style food and drinks to keep all patrons satisfied, helping to create the perfect event.

In all my years running events, I don’t think I have ever come across such a polished, well connected team at a venue. From the onset your willingness to deliver and can-do attitude was infectious. I knew we were in safe hands celebrating our milestone 100 year anniversary event with your support. 

?I wasn’t the least bit concerned about the AV execution for our event, or the running of it, because you had been so professional and efficient in the lead up to the event.? 

?Your team delivered above and beyond and in my 8 years with the firm it was the best event we have ever delivered in Sydney. All thanks to you two and your extremely well-polished team.

Kristy Franks Company Launch

Kristy Franks Company Launch – Seadeck

It was an absolute pleasure to assist with the launch of the Kristy Franks event management company on the stunning Seadeck vessel. We have had the pleasure of working with Kristy Franks on some fantastic large-scale corporate events over the years, so we really wanted to go all out for the occasion.

The build was optimised to ensure we could get on and off the barge to Cockatoo Island where the boat was moored. The load was quite complicated but with the right team and planning we made it work.

The main event for the evening was a keynote speech delivered by Kristy. Selecting a central and elevated position really allowed all attendees to be close engaged with the presentation.

To ensure the PowerPoint presentation was seen clearly by all, we installed two 65 inch QLED Samsung screens on both sides of the stage for maximum impact. These screens deliver a high output, ideal for afternoon outdoor presentations. We also surrounded the presentation area with our new technology EV EXT speakers to ensure crystal clear audio clarity. We also included a monitor screen on the ground for Kristy to see her presentation notes. A Dsan pro clicker made for a seamless presentation.

For the finale we had the super talents of Myah sound system perform. The all-girl act consists of two vocalists and DJ. With the use of Sennheiser G4 in ear-technology and wireless Shure Beta58 wireless technology, Myah vocalist’s could roam anywhere on the boat whilst performing creating great interaction and vibe. The top balcony proved an ideal location for the final crescendo of the performance. The show was a big hit with guests, Kristy and her team had a great dance, the perfect way to end a truly memorable event launch!

M&C Saatchi – Future Classic Party 2018 – The Great Hall Sydney University

M&C Saatchi Future Classic Party 2018

The Great Hall Sydney University

We were thrilled to be asked back to contribute to the legendary advertising industry’s party of the year! With a big international contingent present from a recent conference from all the M&C Saatchi offices around the world, the pressure was on to see if the Australian event could provide the best party to date.

The amazing and historic Great Hall at Sydney University was chosen for stunning architecture and sheer scale (over 1000+ attendees were expected). The event was to be split into two sections. To start the evening, the courtyard would be the first accessible area. The stunning views of the open-air lawn were to be lit up with festoon lighting to create a warm mood on the sandstone walls. With roaming performers in theme costume, roaming canapés and cocktails were on offer along with a tasty DJ set by Mr Dynamite.  At the critical moment, the Great Hall was revealed where the main dance party commenced. This was initiated by the organist playing ‘We are the Champions’ by Queen.

The main hall build required much thought and design to accommodate all event requirements. Power loads were evaluated and external generators were needed and power runs established. The 1.5 meter high stage was custom built to suit entertainment briefs along with a safety rails due to the height factor. The acoustics of the room was super critical to get right due to the 20 meter-high ceilings and vast size of the room that basically acts like a reverb chamber. We did some acoustic analysis and decided the best plan of attack was to have one main line array PA with all the subs right on the stage, the rest of the room would contain 6 surround boxes arranged in pairs along side walls, all with digital delays depending how far away they were from the stage (recall from your science class that sound travels 330 m/s). The end result was a clear and even distribution of sound in the whole hall, a terrific result and it really made the party take off.   

In the centre of the room we built a custom truss structure, 6 meters long by 3 meters wide and 3 meters high! This was needed to mount a fluro tube array and the moving Martin programmed lights for the dance floor. This truss design activated the dance floor and gave the room a main feature. All vision and lighting desks were hidden from sight within the structure. Throughout the room 36 Battery LED wireless DMX lights were programmed to really transform the venue into a club for the occasion, programmed by a dedicated technician. Four Panasonic 15k Projectors were mounted that were used to 3D map the massive organ and bring it to life in true Vivid style. We also projected a galaxy of stars on the ceiling. The portrait painting’s of the Deans were brought to life with cheeky artistic animations.

The audio and visual technical production really allowed the nights performers to take the party to a big crescendo. From DJ sets with vocalist Muma Meg, Sax player Mark Matthews and electronic duo Binary, Future Classic was big hit!

Project X had 15 events this week for the Worldwide board meeting culminating in the gala event at Sydney University for 650 people. Having such a workload and with so many elements needing to come together – having the best team of professions that I trust was imperative. QCE never let me down and always deliver. I strongly suggest booking them!

Deus Venue Launch

Deus Venue Launch

We were excited to collaborate with Project X and the Deus Collective to launch the new Deus Event Space in Sydney’s Camperdown. The venue is an exceptional warehouse space showcasing and selling classic restored motorbikes and Deus clothing and accessories. This warehouse also proved to be a unique and impressive event space.

We started the event in the Café with a set from one of our favourite act’s the Uncle Jed trio as guests enjoyed the Deus culinary offering with Young Henry’s beer, Sonoma bread and selected wines from Young & Rashleigh Wine Merchants.

The main event area was then revealed by event host icon James Valentine.

Dj Juni set the tone and ambience with a smooth soul and roots DJ set to entice guests into the new room.

We then crossed to the main stage for the Gang of Brothers duo and then a panel discussion hosted by Karla from Connection Catalyst.

Back in the café we then moved into a performance set by the incomparable blues roots and rock 5-piece band The Moonhounds. The Moonhounds were greatly appreciated by the audience made up of event producers and our collective’s corporate clients. The boys got the dancefloor going from their first song which set the tone for an amazing evening.

I’d get married again just to see Levi 5 Star make a dance floor jump like that! The music, lighting and energy made it a perfect night. Thanks QCE” – Hamish Blake
