Client: Griffith University
Event: Open Day, Griffith Orientation Week
Location: Gold Coast, Nathan and South Bank Campuses
Date: Sunday, 12 August 2018 Role: Marquees and 79 pagodas
One major event held at three locations on the same day! This was Griffith University’s Open Day held at the Gold Coast, Nathan and South Bank campuses. It’s Griffith’s opportunity to showcase its vast range of offerings to potential students looking for a fruitful learning experience. Open days like this aim to create a fun, informal atmosphere while demonstrating a commitment to academia and high achievement. The event required serious infrastructure at each location to support and house hundreds of information sessions, activities and tours.
This brief was about creating something smarter and sharper than past Open Day events, with a consistency of style and clean finishes that would be the ideal backdrop for displaying the University’s offerings. Choosing Neals for infrastructure hire was a no-brainer for collaborators Valiant Hire and Outstanding Displays, because of past successes and our reputation for delivering on difficult briefs with minimum hitches.
What made it come together? Planning, planning, planning, organisation, attention to detail and coordination to ensure multiple design plans, updates and changes were executed through faultless communication. And with thousands of students walking around the campuses both before and after the actual events, there had to be extreme care taken with truck movements, safety, and noise during setup and pull down (in only 1-2 days at each venue!).
Griffith Open Day done and dusted for another year – the Neals Event Hire team scoring a high distinction for their efforts…
