SAACI Congress, 2015

The SAACI 2015 conference came to Cape Town this month, and our crew were proud to be involved, if not a little pressurized. With a critical audience of conferencing and event professionals – we had to impress. And that we did.  

Sunday’s Re-Connect evening at Cape Town City Hall was an opportunity for delegates to socially engage and catch up in an informal environment. We had to provide sound for clear speech when presenters were on stage, as well as background music to set the tone for the evening, and lighting to fit the theme and highlight the venue’s architecture.

Monday night was SAACI’s extravaganza and awards evening at the newly opened Gallerie de la Banque in Cape Town’s CBD. A stunning venue, it lent itself to the theme of, The Great Gatsby, and our lighting, and audiovisuals were across all levels to create the 1950s look and feel. A special touch to the evening was how the entertainment was brought to the audience using the entire venue and available space.

Let’s get techy

For both events an intelligent lighting rig of robe products including x12 Robe 300 LED wash lights, x4 Robe DLX Spots, x4 Robe DLS Spots and x2 Robe BMFL spots with added support of more than 50 LED Parcans meant not only did we have all the colour options in the world, we also didn’t use a lot of power to achieve the amazing looks required for each event.
