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 shot another corporate function at Etihad Stadium at the start of the 2014 AFL season with plenty of the invited guests on this occasion getting to enjoy a cracker of a Friday night AFL game.
Here is a shot of the view from one of the main entertainment and function rooms.
It’s a very impressive venue with great sightlines right across the field. For such a large stadium it somehow retains a great atmosphere, especially when the footy is on! Heard enough about Etihad Stadium? How about reading about events at the MCG instead?
Since Melbourne is a sporting city, how about adding a dash of that into your next event by using one of the superb function rooms at the MCG?
The Melbourne Cricket Ground has numerous rooms available including the Olympic Room which is where this image was shot from.
In our next blog post we’ll offer some more suggestions for venues around Melbourne, including the huge Etihad Stadium.
We were pleased to attend the Crohn’s & Colitis Fundraising lunch at Zinc in Federation Square recently to photograph the event which featured familiar faces including host and Logie winner Paula Duncan, The Block contestant Katrina Chambers, artist Matteo Charles and various other dignitaries including Hon David Davies MP and former Victorian Premier Ted Baillieu MP.
Sketch in Melbourne’s Docklands isn’t the first venue I think of when people are hosting a conference in Melbourne, but it’s a great alternative to the usual run of the mill event and conference facilities around the city. With it’s converted warehouse exterior and slick but functional interior it maybe looks a little too cool to be suitable for a conference or corporate event, but why not eh?
It has all the necessary components, including great catering, superb acoustics, professional multimedia infrastructure as well as fabulous views of the Yarra river and Bolte Bridge.
It also transforms easily into a venue suitable for dinners and corporate functions, making it a one stop shop for both your conference and evenings entertainment.
We had just finished a corporate function at a venue near the Crown conference centre and were contemplating dinner and a couple of refreshers, when we received the call to cover the Shane Warne Foundation Fundraiser at Club 23 Crown Towers.
Shane Warne with his pal Mick Molloy were hosting a Full Moon Party at Club 23, Crown which was super convenient!
Anyway, here is a pic of Shane with his fundraising shirt shortly before he welcomed all his guests.
