The Australian Event Awards recognise the entire events industry, fostering continued excellence and innovation. Not only did TDC take home Best Technical Achievement, but the company was a National Nominee for Best Achievement in Marketing or Communication and TDC LiveView real-time out-of-home city-wide digital signage and monitoring system was a National Nominee for Best Innovation, New Product or New Service. This is the second year TDC has been shortlisted a National Nominee at the Australian Event Awards and this year was their first win.
Judges of the Australian Event Awards said: “The innovation and delivery by TDC to enhance this event was first class… The new laser technologies really lifted the colour and resolution of the displays this year and it’s fabulous to hear that this has been achieved with a reduction in energy consumption. The technical achievements were multiple and excellent. Congratulations on a fabulous event.”
