“The Australian Turf Club wanted to set a benchmark both nationally and internationally for its grandstand both from a raceday and non raceday events perspective” Mark Flanagan, Executive General Manager Property Development of the ATC noted. “In addition, we wanted to ensure that punters attending the races were receiving all the information, and more - they could receive it either at home or at a pub. A centralised system which allowed us to be flexible with our offering as trends changed and as the masterplan for the spectator precinct developed - was also at the forefront of our thinking. The P.A. People combined with NDY have delivered everything we were hoping in the system which is also easy to use and manage. We believe we now have the pre-eminent Audio Visual systems in the world to service our clients and use as a base for future expansion of the system.”
“It’s certainly been a crazy few months” commented Matt Kirby, Manager - Event Communications at The P.A. People. “Our Event Comms team have been hard at work over the summer months delivering on some of Australia’s most significant cultural, civic and sporting events and I’m proud to say our teams performed beyond expectations”.
The Sun-Herald City to Surf is one of Australia’s most iconic sporting events and dates back to 1971 with just over 2000 entrants. With over 85,000 entrants in 2013, the scale of this event has increased significantly over this time and is an amazing feat of logistics that is managed with the utmost precision by the Fairfax Media Events team.
