Quay to the Caribbean

Quay to the Caribbean was a Christmas activation like no other, one that took our guests on a journey over the high seas only to land shipwrecked on the tropical oasis none other than Quay to the Caribbean! The Activation was held in the heart of Perth city at Elizabeth Quay over a 3 week period in December. QTTC (Quay to the Caribbean) was designed to resemble tropical island of Caribbean inspired food, drinks, music and experiences.

As Ultimo are the event specialists it was our aim to ensure none our our guests would be left standing around with nothing to do, so we designed the event to include many interactive touch points throughout the night. The aim was for guest to spend the night exploring the site discovering new and exciting areas and activities. To accomplish this each Tipi was designed to be totally unique, one was the  Instaprint Tipi where guests could have their Instagram picture printed to take home. Another Tipi was the Captains lounge fully decked out by our friends at The Event Mill to resemble a real Captains of a ship’s headquarters. Lastly was the Tanqueray Gin Tipi – a whole Tipi dedicated to gin cocktails!

The Entertainment on the night included the likes of Captain Clint, a Perth entertainer who dresses as a Jack Sparrow from Pirates of the Caribbean who does magic and even throws fire. There were stilt walkers a silent disco, DJ’s who preformed from the custom made crows nest and we even had 8 piece band preform.
