I don’t think I am alone when I say January was a very quick month! The amazing Santos Tour Down Under created a buzz in Adelaide to kickstart the year and we were thrilled to work with Santos and the City of Unley on their events/activations throughout the amazing week of cycling. Photos of those events will appear in our next issue.

In this edition, we have featured a number of events we managed at the end of last year – from a conference at the Crowne Plaza, to assisting with the Adelaide Food Awards and helping with the launch of the redevleoped Westfield West Lakes, it was an exciting end to 2013 to say the least.

And 2014 is shaping up to be a fantastic year in events once again for the Keito Events team. Enjoy the read and the photos and stay cool!

Westfield Westlakes Redevelopment Launch

Westfield West Lakes engaged Keito Events to manage multiple events over four days to launch the opening of over 40 new stores in the Centre.

The events included fashion shows, cooking demonstrations, children’s cooking classes and a VIP fashion evening. We secured and worked with Simon Bryant and Monique Bowley for the cooking demonstrations and Sprout cooking school to run the children’s cooking classes. We styled the cooking areas with fresh produce, rustic furniture, props and backdrop.

The fashion show stage captured everyone’s attention with the large red ‘W’ in sand and a very modern, slick, white acrylic stage. The 200 VIP guests that attended the fashion parade were treated with a goodie bag, Westfield branded towel, food and beverage from the VIP bar and the fashion show.

Rediscover Hindley – Street Festival

Keito Events worked with the Government to plan and execute a street party in Hindley Street, incorporating Bank, Peel and Leigh Streets to activate the area.

In a short time frame, Keito Events engaged with the local businesses and secured entertainment and market stalls to create a successful event, attracting more than 10,000 people to the area for the festivities.

ASMF Melbourne Cup 2013

This year’s ASMF Melbourne Cup Luncheon was one not to be missed.

Being one of the first events to be held at the newly developed Adelaide Oval and certainly the first event to be held in a large marquee on the plaza entrance was spectacular. Over 600 guests were delighted with a fashion show by Harris Scarfe, Grahams Jewellers and Raw Pearls, as well as entertainment by Lisa McCune and Teddy Rhodes, Michael Griffiths, Matt Gilbertson and X Factor finalist Nathaniel Willemse.

And if all this wasn’t enough to build up the energy in the room, the Melbourne Cup race topped off a great day!

King William Road Spring Into Summer 2013

The City of Unley engaged Keito Events to implement a place activation strategy involving multiple events on King William Road.

The concept of “Spring into Summer” was developed – a weekend event series in November 2013 involving wine tastings, chef demonstrations, artists and music.

Torrens University Information Session 2013

In October and December 2013, Keito Events event managed three information sessions for the new Torrens University Australia. We planned and executed all key elements including catering, additional furniture and décor for networking pre and post the information sessions.

Advertiser Food Awards 2013

Keito Events was engaged by The Advertiser to organise an oriental theme cocktail party for the 2013 Advertiser Food Awards held in October. The event was attended by restaurant managers and head chefs, Amanda Blair and special guest Matt Preston and was a great success.

AIB Conference 2013

Keito Events managed a conference for the Global Centre for Work Applied Learning, of the Australian Institute of Business (AIB). This conference had partner support of Middlesex University and the Action Learning, Action Research Association Inc. (ALARA).

International Business Managers, VIPs and local guests were invited to attend the conference and were shown how to empower their managers and leaders to learn, apply and introduce change in their workplace, and the importance to undertake further studies to improve qualifications.

The conference was a great success and was held at the Crowne Plaza Adelaide which offered great views of the Adelaide Hills.

AIB Alumni At Adelaide Oval

Keito Events managed an alumni event for the Australian Institute of Business at the newly redeveloped Adelaide Oval. The evening featured a speech from the Stadium Management Authority CEO, Andrew Daniels.

More than 150 guests were able to obtain a unique insight into the behind the scenes processes of the stadium redevelopment, as well as hear about the influences and impacts of bringing in multiple sports and memberships. A private tour of the western stand was conducted showing some of the new spaces and media rooms.

AIB Graduation 2013

Keito Events was very pleased to once again event manage AIB’s graduation dinner at the Adelaide Town Hall.

Attended by more than 250 graduates, guests and VIPs, the event was a great success with very positive feedback received from students about the AIB graduation experience.
