Darwin lights up for events
d, Darwin Convention Centre will flick the switch on a new LED lighting system tomorrow night, marking St Valentine’s Day with what will be a permanent option for events.
The wireless and fully automated system involves 38 LED exterior lights which can be programmed to offer any of 16 million colours, allowing the centre to display the colours of national flags or corporate brands.
Supplied by Australian-owned lighting specialist Luxmann, the system also reduces energy use by 77% on the previous system.
Darwin Convention Centre has also announced a new partnership with Dreamedia to deliver its in-house AV services, allowing a major upgrade of its technical and creative offering.
The technological upgrades come as the centre prepares to host the Qantas Australian Tourism Awards on 24 Feb.
The awards will bring together more than 800 tourism business leaders along with Federal and State tourism ministers.
