GALA AWARDS // Mercedes-Benz Dealer of the Year
Proud is an understatement for this piece of work. Over nine months work went into the Mercedes-Benz Dealer of the Year Awards, and it was an experience like no other.
Held at Crown Casino‘s Palladium Rooms, our 700 guests arrived via an elegant black carpet entrance, graced with top of the line Mercedes-Benz vehicles, to receive darling cocktails and have their photos taken in front of a branded media wall.
Featured inside the pre dinner area is a champagne bar, dressed with weeping florals, adorned by an impressive chandelier, lit with perfection. Aerial Angels performed above a quartet band, while being accompanied by contemporary jazz dancers. Once guests moved into the main ballroom, the area was quickly reinvented for the commencement of a more casual staff party, which was run concurrently with live to screen footage shown from the ballroom.
Hosted by Edwina Bartholomew and Karl Stefanovic, 81 awards were presented throughout the evening while guests enjoyed an exclusive menu designed by celebrity chef Shane Delia. Guests were also treated to a performance by Jersey Boys’, Simon McLachlan with a big swing band; and an exclusive reveal of an upcoming car release.
The Palladium ballroom featured a city scape projection installation which covered the entire southern wall of the venue. The table styling complemented the skyline feature, incorporating beautiful florals and candles decorated in glass and metallic votifs, finished off with elegant black linen.
At the conclusion of the formalities, Top Dog Entertainment kicked off the after party with many guests dancing into the early hours of the morning. Below you will find our highlights showcase; it truely was a night to remember.
