Encore Event Technologies (Encore) served up a holographic-influenced experience at the “Love and Desire” themed Top Secret 2019 Dinner held last month in Canberra.
Hosted by the National Convention Centre Canberra (NCCC), the dinner was part of a three-day program run by the Canberra Convention Bureau.
The program consisted of a series of individualised experiences showcasing Canberra’s business event product and services.
The theme for the three-day famil was “Love and Desire”, based on the current exhibition on display at the National Gallery of Australia.
On each table were large 2D Scenic Panels on custom frames, designed to look like garden lattices in the shape of hearts as a nod to pre-Raphaelite theme of the “Love and Desire” exhibition.
Directly above the tables were 20 LED Kinetic Lights, programmed to move with the music and change colour throughout the night.
Also taking inspiration from the “Love and Desire” theme was the night’s entertainment. During the event, two actors from the Shakespeare by the Lake performance rose up after being hidden as guests and began to perform some of the Bard’s most famous sonnets.
The hero of the night was Encore’s use of a holographic mesh screen, which created animated content such as a hot air balloon that floated through the air.
Encore also brought NCCC general manager Stephen Wood into the room as a hologram, with guests watching him stand onstage, interviewing himself as if there were actually two of him.
“We love working with Encore, they always manage to outdo themselves with their innovation and creativity, and this event was no exception,” said Wood.
“This was a truly sophisticated and memorable event. The National Convention Centre Canberra and guests were delighted with the outcome, and we can’t thank Encore enough.”
