Leading audio-visual and events company Staging Connections crafted a lighting and projection mapping extravaganza for the Dom Pérignon Lumiere Dinner, hosted by Australian venue operator Merivale at the ivy in Sydney.
Neon-clad dancers lead the 100 VIP attendees to their seats, where name cards were being projected onto place settings. Animations were also projected onto tablecloths and place settings to introduce each course.
David O’Connor, technical event director at Staging Connections, said:
“Working on this exclusive and prestigious event for Dom Pérignon meant pushing the boundaries to create innovative animations with lighting and projection mapping technologies. The custom built tables and unique projections brought the space to life, creating something truly unique and memorable.
“The style of this event truly emphasised the elegance of the Dom Pérignon brand and we were proud to deliver such stellar results,” he added.
Introducing the champagnes on offer was guest of honour Richard Geoffroy, chief wine maker from France and chef de cave of Dom Pérignon.
Kathy Savill, director of sales and events at Merivale, said:
“Precision was the key, and the team worked hard to ensure cutlery, glassware and plates were all aligned to the bespoke animations, to maximise the visual effect. Both our in-house team and Staging Connections staff rehearsed the timings to ensure a seamless experience for guests. The high calibre of this client meant it was vital to get the presentation perfect; our client and our team are both thrilled with the results.”
