ON SHOW AT SHED 10
A CENTURY-OLD heritage-listed former cargo warehouse on Auckland’s Queens Wharf was transformed into an impressive events space for Auckland Convention Bureau’s showcase. More than 100 business events organisers gathered at Shed 10 to be introduced to New Zealand city’s venues and suppliers.
BULGARI Hotel Shanghai set the scene for Wine Australia China Awards. Riviera Events produced the evening gala during which images of Australia were projected onto the walls. More than 200 sat at long tables in the Bulgari’s balconied event space.
CHEFS STEP UP
HOTEL chefs were out in force at the 10th CCB (Asia) Hong Kong Wine and Dine Festival at the Central Harbourfront Event Space. About 450 booths offered top-notch food and wine during the four-day event organised by Hong Kong Tourism Board with China Construction Bank (Asia).
BRIDGE OF THANKS
ZHUHAI International Convention and Exhibition Centre presented a Thanksgiving-themed cocktail evening organ-ised by the Macau Incentive and Special Events association. The event also welcomed ILEA members from Hong Kong who made the trip via the new bridge linking the city with Macau and Zhuhai.
ENCORE FOR HUMPTY
GUESTS attending the Great Humpty Ball in aid of the children’s charity foundation named after the nursery rhyme character were greeted with small trees as table centrepieces adorned with Humpty branded sweets and chocolates. The event, at the Four Seasons in Sydney, was produced by Encore Event Technologies.
