Opportunity: Avantidrome is a state-of-the-art velodrome in Cambridge, New Zealand. Their new facility was to be honoured with an official opening by HRH Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge during their 2014 New Zealand tour.
Solution: Avantidrome asked us to produce the entire opening event including a lunch function for 500 VIPs including the Prince and Duchess, and management of the press gallery for over 100 global media outlets. The event needed to project the appropriate gravitas whilst entertaining 1500 members of the general public. Uno Loco carefully designed a mixture of speeches, races and live entertainment to keep all attendees engaged while waiting for the arrival of the Royals.
Result: A seamless event!
