Spirit of Excellence Awards, August 2011

CitiPower & Powercor Australia

Ballroom, Park Hyatt – 150 Guest



We were contracted by CitiPower & Powercor to work with them on their Spirit of Excellence Awards. A high profile, black tie internal event that recognises outstanding achievement set in the Park Hyatt’s pristine ballroom.  The technical needed to be of the highest quality and versatile enough to cover both awards and entertainment aspects of the evening.


  • Visual component that included 2 screens, 2 high-end projectors and complex switching equipment.
  • Modular audio system where even distribution for guest satisfaction was critical during the awards section, while a full range band system was concentrated on the dance floor.
  • Lighting was neat and precise highlighting the central awards stage in basic white and then breaking into a full colour LED show (band and dance floor) for the entertainment.
  • Project Management which worked closely with CitiPower and Powercor to take out the stress of all technical aspects.


To come up with a unique room layout that ensured the awards section was positioned amongst the guests, while the entertainment stage and dance floor was strategically positioned slightly away.

To work closely with CitiPower & Powercor’s multimedia supplier and their complex multilayered awards content. Rehearsals were essential to ensure switching was seamless between multiple laptops and the MC was aware of ‘package’ cues.

To work with the entertainment’s specific audio requirements so their component was delivered beyond client expectations.


The event was hugely successful with all guests thoroughly enjoying both the awards and entertainment sections. A technically flawless show was delivered by us without a single issue. CitPower & Powercor were wrapped with how smoothly all aspects of the event came together.
