Why should my company sponsor a Southern Cross Fireworks display?
The scale, visibility, and sponsor identification possibilities of our shows are unequaled in the world of festival advertising. Not just viewed by the crowd at the event, fireworks can be seen for kilometers. They’re a unique, massive theater entertaining thousands, and we are the masters in featuring corporate and sponsors’ logos. Because fireworks are wholesome, exciting, highly visible and usually free to the public, fireworks displays possess a unique ability to create a positive sponsor identification. The entertainment is often seen as a gift to the community, rather than a promotion or paid advertisement. Fireworks have a way of invoking positive feelings about the sponsoring firm that can lead to strong loyalty for products or services.
Aren’t fireworks complex and difficult to arrange?
No. After you confirm the booking, we do it all! Relevant licenses, permits, fees, site details and inspections, a complete fireworks program to suit your event, orchestrated by fully trained pyrotechnicians, with a thorough clean-up of the site afterwards. We notify relevant authorities and provide full public and product liability insurance for all our displays. You’ll have a memorable and carefree evening!
Can you provide a record of my event?
Yes. We’ve established a strategic partnership with the international communications agency Livesights to enable any client also to purchase specially-formatted video audio and stills coverage of their display to be featured on their own website or as a desktop show/screensaver that can be played on a computer screen or simply as a video. This cutting-edge service extends to multi-media coverage of the full event itself if required, including the services of international feature writers. Providing the material in digital format means it can be available to anyone with Internet access — a world away from a 30-second glimpse on the TV news.
