Backdrops Fantastic Australia has just won the Special Event Award for Best New Product/Technology at a gala dinner held in New Orleans, USA, last Thursday (Feb 1) night.
The win coincided with the announcement that the company will launch its modular panel product into the American market under the new name Modular Backdrops USA.
The Special Event Award win was for the fully immersive undersea themed event that Backdrops Fantastic Australia produced for Clubs NSW held at the Gold Coast Convention Centre in 2016.
Backdrops Fantastic Australia director Thomas Brown says,“The team is thrilled with the win having been judged against some amazing international event professional peers. To win the top international award is a proud recognition of the incredible creativity coming out of the Australian event industry.”
Other nominees in the Best New Product/Technology category were Activation Group, Shanghai for the New Volvo S90 China Launch and AirPac Inc., Front Royal, Va. for the Gates Foundation.
Of the launch into the US market, Brown says, “After 15 years building the business in Australia and countless requests to bring our product line and projection mapping to the US corporate event market we decided to make the move and expand our operation. It’s an exciting time for the team.
“Our headquarters are in Denver, Colorado, and we have rebranded the Australian Backdrops Fantastic product to Modular Backdrops for the US and Australian Markets,” said Brown.
