Recently ShowPro was hired to provide a full suite of services for a nationwide company who were wanting to celebrate their successes and staff achievments for the year. They booked out the stunning Te Marae at Te Papa Tongarewa (Museum of New Zealand) and I worked in closely with them to create a lighting and sound AV solution, as well as incorporating Master of Ceremonies and DJ services for the running of the event.A pair of professional lecterns with quality microphones were on stage and the space was perfect for a rear-projection large screen, which meant the image was bright and crisp, and nobody walking in front of the screen cast a shadow on the image. Sound was a pair of Bose L1 systems and the ShowPro technician managed the video switching, multiple microphones, three laptops (two for video and one for audio) for the presentation of the awards. The lighting was chosen to enhance the venue and tie in with the company’s branding.
After the awards were completed, the projector was powered off, a night sky effects light was projected onto the screen, a couple of intelligent controlled lighting effects were turned on and the house lights were dimmed as guests got on the dance floor and danced until closing time. Booking ShowPro meant that the company’s event coordinator had only one point of contact for lighting, sound, visuals, MC and DJ. It made her job very much simpler and less stressful and the night was a huge success.
