It was another big year for the annual ABMVSS Conference held in Melbourne at the Albert Park Pullman hotel and we were selected once again as the official Melbourne conference photographers.
The format of this particular conference needs a large expo space as well as a large ballroom for the annual dinner and breakout rooms for the big line up of speakers they present each year so the Pullman works well for them.
These are just a few highlights from the event photography that we shot over the two days, so if you’re looking for something in particular please get in touch for examples of work.
If you’re planning your own conference at the Albert Park Pullman then please get in touch to discuss your photography requirements and receive a no-obligation quote.
We were delighted to photograph the ATSA Independent Living Expo when it landed in Melbourne this year.
With hundreds of new exhibitors and thousands of visitors over the 2 day expo at the Melbourne Showgrounds we certainly had our work cut out for us, but we managed to photograph the client’s brief and grab a shot of every stand in some form or another.
Thanks to everybody who helped us the expo photography, including the kids who were all keen to pose for photos and demonstrate some of the products for our photographers. We look forward to seeing you at next year’s expo!
We were pleased to be able to provide photography services at the inaugural ALC Supply Chain Technology Summit at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre earlier this month. As with most conferences discussing technology, Blockchain was sure to get a mention!
As a self confessed tech nerd I find that Blockchain still confuses me a little so it was great to be able to listen the Blockchain session which featured Kee Wong of e-Centric Innovations, Aki Ohashi of PARC, Christopher Berg from the RMIT Blockchain Innovation Hub and Chris Zhong, Lead Cloud Architect at Microsoft.
Although I’m not a Blockchain expert, I’m definitely more up to speed with it than I was previously!
Billed as the largest public sector ICT expo, the Technology in Government conference and expo at the National Convention Centre in Canberra didn’t disappoint!
There was a large turnout of delegates for the conference speakers and the exhibition space was bustling in between each and every session.
We look forward to seeing you all again next year!
Selecting a corporate entertainer for the social part of your event or conference can be a tricky decision, as you need to balance the ‘fun’ element of whatever you plan to offer with the audience who can quite often be a sedate and serious bunch of thinkers whose are there mainly for the business or learning side of the event.
Do you go with a band, comedian, acrobats or roving entertainers? I’ve seen them all at one time or another, and I have to say that some were absolute stinkers! In my opinion, the vanilla option is best in these circumstances. Send your clients home mildly amused – don’t make them remember the entertainment due to it being bad or offensive.
If you’re using an MC, definitely hire a professional.
I know of one event fairly recently in Melbourne where the organisers had a friend running the MC side of things. Oh man, you can just imagine how that turned out. From missing cues to publicly embarrassing the CEO of a key client and forgetting to announce or mis-announcing sponsors. As you might have guessed, the entertainment couldn’t recover that disaster!
For the right crowd, who are easy going and want a little fun, but to mainly socialise and network, a roving caricature artist is a safe bet. People get to decline if not interested, the subjects get to take something home with them and usually most people get the chance to have a laugh at whoever is being drawn – it’s usually pretty good natured.
Corporate entertainment can add some fun to your conference or event photography so don’t forget to let your photographer know of any key events you have planned during your booking.
