AVPartners commenced as the in-house audiovisual provider for Shangri La Hotel, Sydney in April 2019. The partnership included an incredible upgrade to the Sydney hotel’s capabilities for conferencing and events. AVPartners led an innovative transformation with state-of-the-art technology, including an extraordinary stage-to-ceiling LED screen in the ballroom. 

The impressive LED screen measures a whopping 11m x 3m and has the ability to be broken into a variety of smaller dimensions, moving on a track across the ballroom’s back wall. The unique AVPartners design allows for countless combinations for creative and effective branding and theming concepts.

The technological advancements work hand-in-hand with AVPartners’ ‘Partner-Driven Difference’; a business model unique to AVPartners where a Partner is positioned in the venue. This service offering ensures the business is being led by someone with industry experience, management capabilities and a true stake in the venue’s success. The ‘Partner-Driven Difference’ has a proven success record for improving capture rates, and newly appointed partner Jovan Singh is keen to continue the trend.

AVPartners’ Partner at Shangri La Hotel, Sydney, Jovan Singh, says, “This technology allows for truly innovative and creative events. We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to showcase the abilities of our team within the spectacular event spaces at the Shangri La Hotel, Sydney.”

The premier hotel’s event space spans across four levels and includes a ballroom, which can hold up to 500 guests and also be split into two rooms, and 17 meeting rooms. 

“AVPartners audio visual technology has revolutionised our meeting and conference spaces, particularly the state-of-the-art LED screens, which provides our clients with the capabilities to make digital storytelling a key part of their events”, said Robert Miletic, Director of Sales & Marketing, Shangri-La Hotel, Sydney.

In addition to the LED screen, the ballroom enhancements include colour-changeable feature lighting in the hotel’s existing chandeliers and innovative ‘pin-spot’ lighting; these lighting features enhance events with their ability to bring a colour theme to life. Additional visual, draping and audio solutions throughout the ballroom and all meeting rooms complete the upgrade and create a fully integrated and seamless experience for future events at the Shangri La Hotel, Sydney.

The AVPartners event services team at Shangri La Hotel, Sydney are on hand to provide clients invaluable assistance in the lead-up to, during and after each event, including advice on design, theming, and event engagement.
