Pause is Australia's premier creative, tech and business event. Held across five sites at FedSquare for 3 days, plus a retreat down the Great Ocean Road, Pause is a catalyst for change, a uniter of all industries, and a platform for the future, bringing the world’s foremost thought leaders like Airbnb, NASA, Netflix, Who Gives a Crap, Fast Company, Girls in Tech, This American Life, SXSW, Pixar and Canva together with local heroes, for one unforgettably action-packed event.
From designing the event aesthetic, establishing the world's first NFC chipped attendees, implementing a corresponding ticketing system, navigating travel and accommodation for speakers across the globe and hooking up our client with fantastic partnerships such as Mountain Goat, Noisy Ritual, Starward Whisky, QT Hotel, Dann Event Hire, WeWork + more, as the creative production agency for the event, not only did we run every aspect of the conference itself, including activating brands such as Xero and IBM, creating a chill space complete with Billy Van Creamy and Wide Open Road, but we extended this years program to bring a series of sensational parties and side-events.
The 2018 program extended to include an Opening Party, plus a slew of smashing events including private event and SXSW meet at Mountain Goat Brewery, a fancy dinner at Pascale Bar and Grill at boutique venue at QT Hotel, a breakfast with views from Taxi Kitchen and a pumping party at Chapter House with DJ MzRizk, Cool Out Sun and an exclusive VR performance by comic artist and interactive designer, Sutu.
Our little team of 4 people completely led the way, to smash this event out of the ball park, setting the standard for the future. Thanks to all of our Sidekicker crew + vollies who were amazing.
It's fair to say it was a very hectic four days of power. Ask us for a case study.
