Connecting the global cloud computing community
Imagination partnered with Creative Hire to orchestrate the highly anticipated AWS Summit at the ICC Sydney. As the annual flagship for AWS, this free event invites the global cloud computing community across more than 30 countries to connect, collaborate and educate. With over 4000 delegates from all industries and skill levels, the objective of the summit was to demonstrate how AWS can assist in implementing flexible and reliable cloud and technology solutions at scale.
Imagination’s creative prowess and event production expertise laid the foundation for a collaborative effort with Creative Hire, with the shared goal of taking the summit to new heights. Understanding the significance of event equipment and project management, Imagination teamed up with Creative Hire, a trusted partner known for their exceptional support in delivering top-tier resources for successful event execution.
In 2023, the event marked a triumphant return to pre-COVID times, captivating a huge in-person audience. A significant challenge arose in accommodating an increased number of delegates within a condensed one-day format, unlike the previous two-day structure. Creative Hire made flawless delivery a top priority across all aspects of the Summit, ensuring a seamless and exceptional experience for attendees, sponsors, and partners alike.

The partnership between Imagination and Creative Hire for the AWS Summit Sydney exemplified the power of collaboration between specialists in their respective fields. Overall, there was an overwhelmingly positive response from the AWS team and partnering sponsors.
By leveraging their expertise and working in tandem, the teams successfully delivered an exceptional exhibition experience that surpassed expectations.
“We greatly appreciate the efforts put into delivering an event of this size and nature, the level of detail from every member of the team was well received and showed in the results.
There are two strengths I’d like to point out that Creative Hire delivered that stand out to me, being able to listen to the creative design provided by Tess.
The other most important point is being accessible, I can not recall a time during production that we were unable to contact you, Clint you lead the team with an energy that remained strong from the beginning to the end”
