It always a bit strange going to breakfast in a darkened room. But hey, this is the event industry so there we are at Peninsular for the AIME Breakfast. Catering by the Atlantic Group is always excellent and this was no exception.
The entertainment was energetic and eclectic but was not helped when the lead singer grabbed the wrong microphone as she went on stage – made for a very strange audio mix.
The introduction on the AIME Luncheon menu stated – “Months in the making, we hope you will find inspiration in the infusion of design, technology, entertainment and culinary creativity.”
Once again the MCEC delivered in each category.
The design in the room reflected the upcoming Open Space event. The Plenary room converts very well from the conference formation to a dining room for 500 guests, especially with such a technically well equipped stage included.
As to technology – MCEC CEO Peter King appeared on stage wearing Google Glass – very cool but what a shame they weren’t live with the image of what he was looking at shown on screen.
The entertainment segment was produced by Peter Jack and featured Lucy Holmes and a swag of dancers and drummers.
The culinary creations included Gippsland lamb, Barramundi fillet, and a variety of desserts.
And all this was just a lead in to the AIME Welcome Party
