Special Events + Projects

We live for exciting special events – projects that break barriers and create amazing experiences for live or broadcast markets.

Mandylights offers highly flexible delivery – as designers only who work with other teams of suppliers, or as a complete, end-to-end production service where we design, supply and execute an entire project.

As multi-disciplinary designers, the Mandylights team has delivered automotive shows, major international broadcast events, city-wide activations and special events and even permanent lighting installations in some truly spectacular locations.

Festivals and experiences

across entire cityscapes

Mandylights has significant experience in the design and delivery of city-wide festival lighting solutions, including working with multiple government and private stakeholders to facilitate spectacular results.

Our production inventory includes over two hundred searchlights and over a thousand outdoor wash fixtures. We’ve also developed our own proprietary mNode data distribution system, which broadcasts data using 4G networks across entire cities or countries.

Corporate activations + events in

ballrooms to city blocks

We’ll be blunt: we don’t do stock standard corporate ballroom presentations – we’ll leave that to hotel suppliers. Give us a call when you want to do something out-of-this-world – in the past we’ve projected down onto gala dinner tables, wrapped entire rooms in hologram mesh screens, created thousands of glowing bricks for guests to build their own stage sets and breakout rooms and then taken parties to carpark rooftops, entire precincts in Singapore and even transformed a beach in Barcelona.

Broadcast Events

from stadium halftime shows to intimate acoustic sessions

From multiple years of stadium shows for Australia’s National Rugby League, Premier League and more, we’re well versed in the design and logistics that go into large-scale special events. At the other end of the spectrum, our work on special concerts for artists including Dean Lewis, Taio Cruz, Guy Sebastian and others have seen us transform even the smallest of venues with our in house lighting design, direction and art direction services.

Long term installations

from alleyways to harbour bridges

Mandylights has significant delivery experience with permanent installations – ranging from our much-loved Lomandra Grasses that hang in Penny Lane at the University of Technology, Sydney through to our huge design and installation of the Vector Lights on the Auckland Harbour Bridge in New Zealand.

Auto Shows

from Detroit to Delhi

We’ve designed spectacular lighting and visual solutions for the Delhi International Auto Show, Detroit Motor show and everywhere in between. While we’re great at white light perfection that is a critical component of any great show stand, we’re typically engaged to create a spectacular overlay that goes beyond the normal expectations and crosses over into a world of colour and movement typically reserved for arena shows.
