Australia - Sydney-based event production and management company AGB Events has announced plans to expand, bringing its vision and talents to festivals, museums, cultural/heritage celebrations and other events and locations around the world.
AGB Events was founded in 2006 by Anthony Bastic, who has spent decades in the entertainment and events industry, including as creative director for the Sydney 2000 Olympic and Paralympic Games Live Sites and the recent Invictus Games Sydney 2018. Bastic is best known as curator of Destination NSW’s annual Vivid Light Sydney.
“We specialise in imagining, producing and delivering cutting edge creative and cultural event concepts. AGB Events has a long track record of developing unique content that engages audiences in superb spectacles,” says Bastic, “and we plan to bring our extensive expertise and skills to organisations worldwide.
“Our strength is in storytelling in a way that resonates, excites and deepens understanding,” he continues, “whether that’s for governments, arts festivals, heritage sites and events or corporations - capturing imaginations in innovative ways with light and sound, creating digital stories for content from the present day to content that may be centuries old. We can do that on the largest scale imaginable - as we did recently for Parrtjima - or for the most intimate of gatherings.
“For us, technology is an extremely powerful enabler of beautiful and immersive experiences - but it’s the experience, not the technology, that is always centre stage. Our overriding objective is always that everyone who sees what we create remembers it forever. We love what we do, and we think it shows.”
AGB’s credits also include The Lights of Boston, the Lights of Christmas in Sydney and Brisbane, Oz Fest in Delhi and Canberra’s centenary celebrations.
The AGB Events management team now includes international event logistics professional Todd Severson, who is the company’s chief operating officer.
AGB Events is also expanding its creative consultancy discipline. “We are working with a series of international clients to help them embed creative solutions in their cultural placemaking plans.”
