Tech of the Week

September 21st, 2012

This week we celebrate our tireless tech Tom Logistio, they build the Canadians nearly as tough as us Aussies because there is no stopping him.  A busy time for the Bright Black AV team with the AFL Cairns Presentation Dinner, CDRL Presentation Dinner, Australian Occupational Therapy, Australian Timeshare Holiday Ownership Conference, CAT Conference Dinner, Optus Gala dinner featuring the magical Cosentino, Australian Water Association Conference and Gala Dinner – this has been a team effort but without Tom dividing himself between Cairns & Port Douglas we would not have receiving the glowing thank you’s that have come through the office.

First to thank you and the team for Monday night.  Everything worked seamlessly (as expected) and Tom was absolutely brilliant to work with.  Thank you again.

To all our valued clients, suppliers and business colleagues,

Access is via either Scott or Spence St and we are excited about all the possibilities this new location has to offer.

We look forward to continuing to offer our trademark exemplary ‘service with a smile’ from our new home.

ICE, ICE Baby!

June 18th, 2012

It’s got absolutely nothing to do with 80′s rap sensation Vanilla Ice. (Phew…everyone breathes a sigh of relief.) It’s much cooler than that. So cool, in fact, that it’s ICE cold!

A drop in sweltering summer temperatures traditionally signals the beginning of the Nth QLD event season, but never in the history of Cairns have we had ICE in May, until now! ICE Australia Pty Ltd brought their consummate professionalism to Cairns for Cosmetex 2012. Delegates were welcomed at the Hilton Hotel for cocktails on Wednesday 2 May, conferencing was held at the Cairns Convention Centre, and the Gala Dinner was staged at the Cairns Cruise Liner Terminal on May 4.

We were delighted to be working with the team from ICE Australia, who deliver an exceptionally high standard of event. Take a look at the fabulous photos from the Gala Dinner courtesy of ICE Australia. Bright Black AV provided all AV & staging, along with event design and styling. Dein Perry’s TAP DOGS provided explosive entertainment on the night and Sydney musos THE SHY GUYS rocked the crowd until late.
