Aaaand that’s a (gift) wrap on 2022! We’d like to tie a big, festive bow around this year and say a Merry Christmas and huge thank you to our incredible clients and dedicated suppliers that have made all events, broadcasts, activations and experiences possible these past 12 months. We can’t wait to share with you our visions for 2023 and see where the next ride takes us.

You’ll find us back in our Pollen Street saddles from the 9th of January, but until then - Meri Kirihimete and we’ll see you soon! 🎄🥂

Dawn this morning was a special moment for the Uno Loco and Hula teams. Hone Heke Rankin of Ngāti Whātua led a blessing, Karakia and shared breakfast to formally welcome us to our new home at 22 Pollen Street in Grey Lynn.

After two years in separate offices, navigating turbulent times, we're back together. This beautiful space will allow us to creatively collaborate and deliver even more amazing work in 2023!

On the last day of Christmas Uno Loco gave to us…A Christmas party!

On Thursday we signed off some emails, pushed in some chairs and took a moment to raise a glass to the work we and our other half Hula have accomplished this year. The past 12 days have only highlighted some of the major gigs we’ve produced in 2022 - here's to another wild year!

Meri (almost) Kirihimete everyone 🎄

Just like that we reach the penultimate day of our 12 days of Christmas. And what better way to celebrate than the welcoming of the FIFA Women's World Cup Trophy and the international FIFA delegation to New Zealand for the official draw ceremony.

We were fortunate to work with our good friends at Rawstorne Studio, Event Base, NZ Story, Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei, Tātaki Auckland Unlimited, Big Picture and The Great Catering Company to produce this truly memorable pōwhiri at Karanga Plaza. Bring on FIFA WWC 2023!

We're celebrating EY on the 10th Day of Uno Loco Christmas! The EY Entrepreneur Of The Year program recognises and celebrates the spirit and contribution of exceptional entrepreneurs.

Not only did Uno Loco produce the luxurious black tie gala awards dinner, but our sister company Hula travelled around NZ filming the winners to produce a series of short, sharp & concise video clips shown on the night. Live award stings from our 'house' band, stunning lighting and an 18m LED screen all contributed to the must attend award night of the year 🕺

Day 9 of our UL Christmas and we want to celebrate women in rugby!

In the week leading up to the groundbreaking WRWC final, Uno Loco assisted in the delivery of four major events. The project saw a 5-day international committee meeting and broadcast, and a 3-day summit event at the Aotea Centre, all topped off with a celebration dinner at the Auckland Museum dome.

Our producers Anabelle and Liv even got to end the week on a high at the Auckland Eden Park finals! We loved seeing international audiences unite in their passion for women’s professional sport

We’ve made it to Day 7 of our Christmas round-up, and today we are transporting you to the Big Apple 🍎for the annual AIA Christmas Party.

This year, we brought the streets of 80’s New York to Hobsonville, and created our very own Block Party. Complete with rollerskating waitresses, street breakdancers and a live graffiti art installation from the one and only Otis Frizzell, this was a night to remember.

Day 6 - In the countdown to Christmas we celebrate - drumroll please - Countdown! We’re raising an eggnog to our green friends as we reflect on the annual Countdown Show.

To kick off the festive season, we produced a two-day expo that showcased up-and-coming products from some of NZ’s biggest brands. The Countdown show also included business and supplier updates as well as a fully hosted online experience for our virtual audience. Collectively we hosted over 1,000 people from across the country!

As the Spice Girls would say - ‘when two become one’!

For Day 5 of Uno Loco Christmas we want to celebrate Mercury’s acquisition of Trustpower’s retail business. ‘Wonderful Together’ was a hybrid event held at the beautiful Civic Theatre and broadcast to over 1000 attendees across Aotearoa. From confetti cannons and musical performances to the graphics and visual identity of the event, the Hula and Uno Loco teams created a unique celebration of the businesses histories and shared future!

Day 4 of our Christmas celebrations brings us to our four mall activations showcasing the Hyundai IONIQ 5. With a display focused on sustainability, we brought the IONIQ 5 to major shopping centres across the country.

Thanks to our friends, Riot Design, for their innovative design skills in bringing a low impact, durable yet visually impactful display to life.

As UL’s 12 days of Christmas steps into Day 3, we look back at our 3 day conference for Coca-Cola, hosted in the always beautiful Queenstown.

With back to back events across 3 incredible days and nights, we celebrated CCEP and CCO’s teams with their annual Awards night. We delved deep into conference and topped it off with an only-Coke-can-do once-in-a-lifetime celebration under the stars.

Always a privilege working with such an iconic brand - we had a lot of fun pulling this one together! Big thanks to TomTom Productions for helping us bring the WOW factor across the weekend.

Say a ho-ho-hello to the 12 days of Uno Loco Christmas 🎄

We want to kick off day one by celebrating One! We were supremely proud to be part of the momentous work done this year for the Vodafone New Zealand rebrand launch across Aotearoa.

Together with our team of fantastic suppliers, we launched a colossal 131 retail and personalised business experiences, live streams, a press conference and Corporate office events. The announcement launched with an incredible XR video experience that took our audience on a journey from Vodafone to One.NZ in an innovative and spine tingling way. Huge thanks to our partners at Disguise & Rawstorne Studio.

24/11/2022

For the SEVENTH year in a row our team produced the outstanding NZTE New Zealand International Business Awards!

570 guests came together to celebrate the success of exceptional Kiwi businesses who have spread their wings across the globe. We love working collaboratively with NZTE to put on this inspiring and glamorous evening. A big thank you to our hosts Jesse Mulligan & Oriini Kaipara, our young emerging talent Sophie Maude and our wonderful suppliers.

We’ll catch you next year NZTE!

Huge congrats to the Black Ferns on their incredible Rugby World Cup win 🏉🎉

Uno Loco had the pleasure of spending some time with the Black Ferns and the famous trophy, Nancy, as we toured NZ in the lead up to the World Cup.

From Invercargill, to Taipa, to Great Barrier Island - we hit 75 activation spots and 28,436km traveled, sharing the World Cup magic with over 11,000 school children. A reminder that behind every incredible success is the investment of time and commitment.

Uno Loco's owners also want to pass on their heart-felt thanks to Dudley Enoka for everything he’s done with us as Chair of our Advisory Board. Dudley’s held this role for a decade, and his astute advice and mentoring has been an essential element of our success.

Dudley’s relationship with Madant (Uno Loco’s previous incarnation) began as a client in his role as CEO at Yellow. This lead to him advising the founders Troy Sugrue and Craig Muller on some gaps - like having a plan, and setting some targets! His work has helped Uno Loco become market leaders for large scale business and broadcast events; and Hula Design become one of the fastest growing design agencies in Aotearoa New Zealand.

We’re delighted to announce that Dudley’s stepping into a new role with us as our Leadership Advisor, helping us build leadership skills with our senior people.

Pictured is our gift to Dudley Enoka - referencing one of his coaching phrases "is your landing field clear". Meaning - we're about to have a tough and direct conversation...!

On behalf of Uno Loco's owners we are delighted to announce the appointment of Victoria Spackman ONZM as Chair of our Advisory Board.

In our search for this role we were looking for someone who could help us build and execute a clear growth plan over the next 3 years. In this context Victoria’s expertise as a strategic leader in a wide range of sectors including technology, creative and screen businesses, services exporting and education was enormously appealing.

We’re looking forward to working with her to deliver the next phases of our growth as a company. Thanks to David Downs for the wonderful introduction.

From studio livestreams, to museum rooftops, to fully virtual and crossing live to 26 sites across the country, it was all go for the Uno Loco Broadcast team last week!

Live events are back, but virtual and hybrid events still have an important role to play for lots of different reasons and for many of our Clients.

So here are seven BTS photos from not one, not two, but SEVEN broadcast and hybrid events from the past week 🎥🎉

Please join Uno Loco, Sam Witters and our friends in the broader creative sector donating via www.manaakiukraine.co.nz to World Central Kitchen. They're operating inside Ukraine and around the clock at all eight border crossings into Poland, providing meals to refugees from their kitchen. The need is overwhelming.

We understand the connection between kai and care, and the aroha and comfort that comes from a meal prepared with love.  We're asking you, the creative community in Aotearoa, to Manaaki Ukraine and support the World Central Kitchen as it provides hope – one meal at a time.

The Uno Loco team (Francis, Jared, Haley and Laura) had a blast on site at the New Zealand International Business Awards last week. The NZIBA's are a celebration of extraordinary Kiwi businesses who have continued to showcase our nation's ingenuity and tenacity through their products overseas, in spite of all that's happening in the world at the moment.

Originally planned to be a gala dinner, this event was shifted to a free online broadcast with in-studio hosts Oriini Kaipara and Jesse Mulligan awarding winners virtually. The livestream went seamlessly and the graphics, animations and studio set gave the evening a very polished feel.

As we remain in the red alert level, we are seeing more of our clients choose to deliver their award evenings virtually. Whether this be run from a studio or fully virtually we can utilise professional hosts, interactive technology solutions and on screen graphics to elevate these broadcasts into something truly special.

For a great example, you can check out the NZIBAs at the link below. A big thank you to New Zealand Trade & Enterprise for having us work alongside you on this awesome event!

Last week we were finally able to deliver the Angel Association 2021 Summit (after 2 postponements!). Wellington blessed us with some sunshine, as we welcomed guests both in person and virtually to Ohariu Farm and Boomrock to meet fellow investors and to learn from fantastic speakers and panel discussions. This event was a great example of how hybrid events can be run safely utilising smaller groups and outdoor spaces.

It was such a treat to be on site at an event and to work with the lovely Angel Association NZ team again this year.

Remember that time we met Hillary Clinton?

While we're stuck in the world of virtual/hybrid events, we're reminiscing on some of the cool stuff we used to get up to. Back in 2018 we were honoured to work with The Growth Faculty on producing the NZ leg of "An Evening with Hillary Rodham Clinton". Events like this don't come round often! We worked with an onsite team of over 150 to deliver a sold out 3,000 guest show at Spark Arena, polished off with a standing ovation from the crowd.

Another awesome virtual event delivered with Countdown last week! We ran two back to back business update presentations - with over 1,000 attendees joining on the day.

With only three weeks turn around time, we were stoked to deliver a seamless event and receive very positive feedback from our client.

‘Thanks so much for your hard work yesterday - as per usual working with you and the team is a breeze!’ - Kalena Zivkovich, Marketing Manager - Events

02/02/2022

Two years in and it’s no secret that video meetings are getting a little dry. In alert level red, we have been working with our clients to spice up virtual events with full-screen graphics, video playback, lower-third graphics and interactive features. We have found that adding elements like these, as well as using studio broadcasts and limited live audiences, can keep people a lot more engaged and prevent the dreaded zoom fatigue!

If you have had your event plans changed due to the alert level get in touch to see how we can help! Contact [email protected]

Uno Loco can bring your virtual or hybrid event to life

Here we go again! Back into red. While this is disappointing for many industries, Uno Loco are all geared up to work remotely or onsite with strict measures in place.

We’ve spent the last couple of years immersing ourselves in live broadcasts, hybrid events and virtual experiences across all platforms and streaming services.

With the 100 person capacity limit, we are already working with clients to produce hybrid solutions with studio broadcasts, live audiences and the opportunity to connect in person and virtually.

We can’t wait to get back to events as usual but in the meantime, we’re excited to deliver all sorts of innovative virtual & broadcast projects. If you’re interested, please get in touch with [email protected]

That's a wrap! 2021 was a funny one but as always, we're grateful to our awesome clients, suppliers and staff for all the epic work we've done in the past year.

Recently we delivered the Chorus End of Year Broadcast. Usually, Chorus would host up to 1,000 staff from all over New Zealand for a night of celebrations, presentations and awards in Auckland. We were asked to adapt this event to fit in with COVID restrictions but in a way that still delivered the same epic experience and marked the 10th anniversary of Chorus becoming an independent organisation.

The event went amazingly well, with a broadcast that included superb entertainment from Jeremy Corbett, Che Fu and the Krates, high production value screen and content design from a central broadcast studio in Auckland, with two hybrid ‘studios’ located at the Christchurch and Wellington Chorus HQ’s. We loved being a part of this successful and memorable event and receiving positive feedback from a happy client!

"Amazing result guys. Thank you! We are getting great feedback already and it truly was a seamless and successful event." - Kelly Hawkins, Chorus

We had a blast last week delivering AIA's Remote Show; a fun spin on a traditional talkshow. Advisers tuned in nationwide to discuss results, insights and all things insurance.

While we would often rather gather together in person, lockdown has given us a valuable understanding of how successful broadcast events can be for delivering key information and ensuring people still feel connected.

Our good friends at Hyundai NZ asked Uno Loco to assist with the launch of their XCIENT Fuel Cell Truck, New Zealand's first hydrogen powered truck.

Due to COVID restrictions, we had to come up with a solution that enabled a small private audience to be physically at the launch, while also providing global access to the livestream of the event. Uno Loco have become specialists in this space, providing all the requirements for the launch on site at Hyundai including all the necessary equipment, links, accounts, graphics and 'know how' to successfully deliver the hybrid event across the globe.

The launch makes NZ one of only three countries in the world with this incredible technology. Minister Wood was there to mark this momentous occasion for Hyundai, which is a huge step towards their goal of zero emission transportation.

This week our team had the pleasure of venturing on farm with Fonterra, to do a live broadcast to one of Fonterra’s customers.

The live farm tour was broadcasted into MS Teams, as a window into the daily life of one of the Cooperatives Canterbury farms where milk is turned into Mozzarella.

Our roving reporter got to see and interact with the farmer, the milking shed, our tanker driver, the farm dog and of course lots of happy cows!

In a time where customers can not travel, this provided a truly unique experience that allowed Fonterra to showcase the power of NZ dairy to a global audience.
