Opportunity: In 2015 Kea (Kiwi Expats Abroad) asked us to produce their annual World Class New Zealander Awards. These Awards are New Zealand’s most prestigious individual achievement awards recognising inspirational, world leading Kiwis and friends who are making outstanding contributions to New Zealand. This event is hugely popular, and attracts an exclusive crowd of our finest achievers from at home and abroad. Kea wanted to step-change the event, grow it’s revenue, and invest this to create an unforgettable world-class guest experience.
Solution: We recommended a change of venue, giving us both more creative scope, and increasing opportunity for networking. We created a seamless event experience incorporating World Class dining, logistics, entertainment, creative theming using the New Zealand Story and Spark of Brilliance brand assets, and international shoots interviewing some of the illustrious winners including Victoria Ransom, Tan Sri Halim Saad and the Right Honourable Helen Clark.
Result: A brilliant night! For a roomful of kiwi legends we created a moving, inspiring evening showcasing Kiwi talent and provided a platform for some of New Zealand’s finest to network, and to shine.
