Staging Connections unveils new premises in South East Queensland – consolidates two operations in South East Queensland into one state-of-the-art-facility located in Logan.
In a move that centralises all of its SEQ operations, 110 full-time and 40+ casuals have relocated from Staging Connections’ Brisbane and Gold Coast offices into a new complex in Loganholme.
The official opening took place on Tuesday 9th November and was hosted by Terry Hansen from the 97.3FM Breakfast Show and also featured brief welcoming speeches by Russell Bennett, General Manager of Staging Connections Queensland and Tony Chamberlain, Managing Director of the Staging Connections Group. Logan City Lord Mayor, Pam Parker officially welcomed Staging Connections to Logan.
The official speeches were followed by a tour of the facility and a showcase of Staging Connections’ SHOWcraft and state-of-the-art production techniques.
According to Staging Connections General Manager, Russell Bennett, the rationale behind the relocation is twofold; firstly the new premises allow better utilisation of staff and resources and the choice of Logan is due to the fact that the location provides easy access to the major arterials to effectively service clients on the Gold Coast, in and around Brisbane, and the Sunshine Coast.
“Our new office and warehouse has better facilities, more space and allows better utilisation of our resources. As well as our audio, visual, sound and lighting operations the 2,300 square meter warehouse has enabled us to expand our Styling and Design areas to include a showroom as well as an area specifically for the design and manufacture of sets and props for our clients’ events,” Russell said.
Approximately 150 invited guests will attend the official opening of the new Staging Connections premises including Business Events industry leaders, corporate clients, venue partners, and the media.
Staging Connections used the launch of its new premises at 18 Babdoyle Street, Loganholme to showcase its integrated event services and the inspiration behind the delivery of its events such as AGM’s, Gala Dinners, Award Nights, Conferences, Roadshows, Special Events and Private Social events.
