Encore Technologies epic incentive spans New Zealand to Bondi


Encore Event Technologies has set a new benchmark after managing its largest back-to-back program of activity and events for 700 Asian Paints India resellers across Australia and New Zealand.

Encore Event Technologies APAC managed 32 events over 17 venues across Australia and New Zealand over 14 days, with Asian Paints India’s cohort flown between Queenstown and Auckland in two waves over two weeks in April and May. An extension event to Sydney was also organised for a VIP group.

Each day was filled with curated once-in-a-lifetime experiences, from Doubtful Sound on the South Island to Sky City in the North then across the ditch to Sydney Harbour and Bondi Beach.


Following the client’s brief and theme of ‘Unstoppable’, each night featured a different, strategic theme from gameshows and ‘beerfests’ to a galactic gala event using technological applications such as holograms, 30sqm LED screens, kabuki drops and pyrotechnics.

Asian Paints India also flew 24 chefs from India and Dubai to accompany guests throughout their trip, ensuring attendees felt at home with a menu packed with traditional flavours.

“In New Zealand we had the pleasure of working with local suppliers, local resources and really harnessed those grass-rooting experiences with New Zealand culture,” said Scott Nodsle, Encore Event Technologies managing director international.

“This event truly exemplified how innovative technology and strategic event design can transform incentive travel into an unforgettable experience that beautifully showcases the host city’s culture and capabilities.”
