Council Christmas Party

Council Christmas Party

On Friday 13th December, 3vent were onsite managing the event operations of our last major event of the year: the annual Christmas Party for all staff of the City of Gold Coast!

With approximately 2,000 staff members attending each year, it’s one of the largest corporate Christmas celebrations on the coast.

As usual, the December weather was extremely hot and muggy through set up. Our crew did an incredible job of setting it up quickly, ensuring the event was ready to go by 12pm. Then, the huge task of stocking the bars commenced before gates would open at 2pm.

Minutes before the gates opened the heavy rain kicked-in so guests that were arriving early were re-directed to an undercover breezeway area to get shelter from the rain.

Luckily the wet weather passed and guests were able to enjoy some chilled drinks, good food and dance to the band to celebrate the year coming to an end.
