Transformed Hamner Springs into the Kingdom of Arnotts
A great example of developing a new theme specifically for a client. Arnotts wanted consistency across a theme and entertainment over three days for its annual conference.
enthuse transformed the Heritage Hanmer Springs Hotel into the Kingdom of Arnotts for three days for their annual conference, providing theming, entertainment, team building and event management services.
Delegates from all over New Zealand were bused from Christchurch to the Weka Pass Railway where they were hosted by two enthuse actors playing the roles of the Kingdom of Arnotts Sheriff and Prince Gaiety, named after Arnott’s Gaiety Real Chocolate Biscuits.
The group then travelled on the historic rural railway on a vintage steam train before transferring back to the coaches to complete their journey to Hamner Springs.
The hotel was transformed into a castle setting, complete with flags, a large throne, a court jester, Queenie and hotel staff all in period costume and a royal court where delegates were greeted.
Pillow gifts were masks for the second nights masquerade ball where enthuse actors and hosts morphed into the evening entertainment as the royal appointed masquerade band.
