I Love receiving Emails like this.  Thanks Rien you rock

“Hi Liam, I’ve just returned from Port Douglas having worked on the APASS Conference as the Facilitator/Emcee and keynote speaker.

I’ve been working as a professional speaker for over 20 years and wanted to sing the praises of Rein who in my opinion and experience has been by far the most professional, capable, responsive, ‘can-do’ and ‘calm-under-the-stress-of-unprofessional-incompany-presenters’ AV person I’ve worked with 

I openly thanked Rein in front of our audience of 130 plus financial advisers, but wanted to also send this note to say how much of a pleasure it was to work with him and I hope I get the opportunity to do so again.

 Warm Regards


A to Z with Astrazeneca

April 1st, 2015

Well the year has started off with a Bang and our first big gig for the season was for Deep Blue Learning and there Client Astrazeneca. The Event for 350 pax was held at the Cairns Cruiseliner Terminal

DPL commissioned Bright Black to do there vision, audio and lighting production.

The brief was “it’s gotta look WOW”.

No problem – 2 day bump in over 100 lighting fixtures, concert line array, 4 large projections screens they got the wow.

Special thanks to the BBAV team for a awesome job

“Hope you are well.

Just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU for saving the day and creating the most amazing lighting for our wedding – we are still receiving compliments on how beautiful it all looked and how amazing the event was!

BDO Decadence

December 10th, 2013

Its that time of year again with corporate Christmas on the go.  BDO asked us to look after theme again, with this years theme Great Gatsby.  Working with a budget we designed a very elegant theme which came off a treat.

Hi Liam

Courtney and I would like to say a big thank you for your work on our Christmas Party on Friday.

We really appreciate all the work you put in from the planning stage through to the set up.

The room looked absolutely fantastic and really impressed everyone on the night!

Now everyone wants to know what we will do next year to top it – we will have to start brainstorming early.

Thanks again

Christmas party

Seeing a dentist is not that painful

October 24th, 2013

As i mentioned in a previous post its not often we get clients to take the time to sit down and write a thankyou letter.  Nor is it expected.  But when they are received, it just reaffirms that we are on the right track.

Last weekend end we did the JCU Dentistry Gala Ball at the Cruise liner terminal.  This is what they had to say.


Hi Liam,

Just wanted to say a big thank you again for all the hard work you put in to making our Dental Ball as fabulous as it was. Everyone was raving about how wonderful the venue looked and how smoothly the event was run on the night and its all thanks to you! Personally, I really appreciate all the hours behind-the-scenes that you have put in over the past year and how accommodating you have been with all the changes of plans. The event would not have been possible with out you.

Many many thanks for all your help again, it was greatly appreciated!!

Kindest Regards,

ASAB Gala Dinner

October 14th, 2013

Its not often we get thank you’s for an event but recently we did an event for 780 people at the Cairns Cruise Liner terminal for ICMS Australasia.
Thought i would share some feed back.

“Dear Liam,

On behalf of ICMS Australasia I am writing to thank Bright Black for their participation in the ASBA 2013 conference dinner. Looking through the gallery at all the smiling faces of all participants is heart warming and such a joy. Our clients were absolutely thrilled to bits which is the true indicator of success.

We really appreciate everything you did delivering over and above our expectations – the themeing was perfect and exactly what I wanted – the wharf looked like a really cool bar exactly what I wanted. Your confidence and commitment in the planning process was such a benefit to me being here in Brisbane your local knowledge was invaluable.

Thank you for sharing this journey with us you are so easy to work with, please thank your team on our behalf.

We will be sure to include you in the final Ezine communication being despatched next Tuesday, which includes the photo library section, its already live on the website. There are some amazing shots the set up and themeing we are only to happy to share.

Next event I have in Cairns I will be sure to make contact.

Kindest regards
Suellen and the ASBA team” — ASBA event
