I just wanted to say that Saturday was a complete success from my point of view; perfect weather, excellent marquee setup, catering was spot on, cars on display were very popular. The guests were all happy and thankful and we definitely had the best Marquee on the day by far!
All of my customers and guests called me either on Saturday evening or Sunday afternoon to thank me and Land Rover for the day – so thanks extends to you all for putting this together. On behalf of our dealerships and our guests, thank you.
To design and activate an English Polo Garden inspired setting for the valued clients, guests and staff of Land Rover Australia at the 2014 Waterford Crystal Polo in the City in Sydney and Melbourne.
Responding to the brief, Event Planet custom-designed a timber painted gazebo with an English Polo Garden setting. Fresh pink roses were entwined along lengths of climbing ivy suspended from white lattice walling and continuing the length of the gazebo sides. Verdant hedge walling was used to create a bold backdrop with a feature laser-cut circular wooden sign emblazoned with #LandRoverPolo.
The furniture selection included crisp white wooden settings, complemented with rattan butlers’ trays in neutral tones, as well as aged cane lounge suites. Subtle branding was incorporated throughout the space with fabric cushions in white and navy. Underfoot, a layer of smooth synthetic turf was laid, providing soft but stable flooring for guests, which is suitable for all weather conditions. The perimeter of the enclosure was created with hedged fencing panels and finished with a bespoke European inspired entrance gate straddled with branded sandstone plinths.
A vehicle display was lined with playful hobby horses, polo mallets and custom-branded life size chess pieces, which were used by celebrities and guests as props at the popular media wall. A Polaroid photo services was also offered to give guests a novel memento gift from the day.
Guests were treated to a sumptuous menu, which included a beautifully presented grazing table abundant with decadent cheeses, charcuterie meats, fresh vegetables and dips. Pimms cocktails were offered from vintage Waterford Crystal goblets along with Pol Roger Champagne.
A remarkable gazebo and English country garden setting for the guests of Land Rover to enjoy the Polo action in comfort and style!
Thank you so much for doing an amazing job on the Land Rover marquee at Polo in the City. We have had such positive feedback from the clients, dealers, VIP’s and media. We were the highlight marquee in both Sydney and Melbourne thanks to all your hard work.
We couldn’t have done it without you. Hands down the best year for Land Rover at Polo in the City.
