Wellington Annual Ball
We have been providing technical and event management support to Wellington International College for the last five years. As usual the Annual ball went off in spectacular style as the Grand Hyatt Shanghai became the host of the Rio Carnival themed Ball.
Bursting with the colour and vibrancy that you would expect from an event inspired by Brazil’s premier festival, this year’s ball was a glittering affair attended by hundreds of Wellington staff members and parents. Also; thanks to the generosity of the guests and raffle sponsors, the raffle raised more than RMB 90,000 for Angel Baby, the chosen charity recipient for this year’s event.
CTRL AV provided technical and event management support for the event. After an initial site visit and production meeting; we recommended using a 12 meter stage and LED screen to accommodate the 12 piece African Band. Fully wireless equipment was utilised so the band could walk around and interact with the crowd during their performance and Glitter Cannons were triggered to highlight the key events. With the help of our talented team of designers, technicians, project managers and install staff we successfully transformed the Grand Hyatt Shanghai Ballroom into the experience of a Rio Carnival.
