Chinese Life hops along

IT was one of the largest meetings on the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre’s 2012 calendar, with the Chinese Life Insurance Congress attracting close to 3000 delegates, and the centre hosting plenary and breakout meetings as well as the opening ceremony and awards evening. The Centre Technical Production and Design team organised an array of acts, starting with two 2.5m tall bouncing kangaroos which greeted delegates as they arrived at Sydney Airport. Meeting the brief, the team also created an impressive 30-metre wide stage for the Bayside Auditorium, spanned by a huge Sydney Harbour Bridge and framed with Chinese Life banners. They also created a 3D model Sydney Opera House (above) - measuring eight metres long and more than three metres high for the Parkside Foyer, providing a popular photo backdrop. The two day event featured a wide range of performances including a pipe band, a father and daughter duet, an aerial acrobatics act and a spectacular drumming group. Centre ceo Ton van Amerongen said, “This was a wonderful opportunity to demonstrate the creativity and professionalism of the Centre’s team to an international audience and also showcase our fantastic location.” IT was one of the largest meetings on the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre’s 2012 calendar, with the Chinese Life Insurance Congress attracting close to 3000 delegates, and the centre hosting plenary and breakout meetings as well as the opening ceremony and awards evening.
