Staging Connections and Hilton Brisbane have announced the completion of a major upgrade of the Grand Ballroom’s audio visual systems.
Highlighting the successful partnership, Director of Venues, Terry Oomens was thrilled to announce the revamp of the premier event venue, cementing the Grand Ballroom as a leading event space in Brisbane.
“Staging Connections is proud to work with our valued partner, Hilton Brisbane, in raising the bar for venues in South East Queensland. By delivering industry leading event services and state of the art audio visual services, the Grand Ballroom is certainly one of the most technically advanced venues in Australia,” said Mr Oomens.
At the heart of the upgrade is the transition to a cutting edge digital fibre infrastructure, which now offers a superior level of brightness and clarity of images via ultra-sharp projection. The brand new audio visual infrastructure complements the recently installed full high definition Christie projectors and 16:9 motorised screens. In addition, the Grand Ballroom’s lighting system has been centralised, with the installation of a world class touch screen control pad to manage the recently added 48 computerised ceiling fixtures and digital audio consoles.
The upgrades will reduce the environmental footprint and the complexity of the technology within the event space; with Staging Connections implementing efficient event solutions that deliver an enhanced client experience.
Ronald van Weezel, General Manager, Hilton Brisbane said he is delighted to see the hotel push their meeting and event offering further to better provide clients with unforgettable events.
“We’re very excited about the audio visual revamp of our Grand Ballroom. Our team prides itself on delivering the very best in event experiences, and it is a pleasure to work with the Staging Connections team to continue to make that happen, setting a new benchmark for Brisbane,” said Mr van Weezel.
The Grand Ballroom is located on level 5 of the Elizabeth Street hotel, and offers one of the largest event spaces in the Brisbane CBD accommodating up 600 guests for banquets and 1100 guests for cocktail events.
As the on-site AV partner, Staging Connections offers the full breadth of event staging services creating exceptional event experiences in collaboration with the Hilton Brisbane team.
