Angkor Wat – Legendary Event Site for A Very Special Event Experience

Angkor Wat – Legendary Event Site for A Very Special Event Experience

Surprisingly there have only been two major events ever staged within the legendary Angkor Wat site. A national event staged in 2002 with star tenor Jose Carreras – and eight years later with this memorable and awe inspiring corporate event produced by the FACTOR168 Creative Event Company.

In designing an entertainment program that would be powerful, impactful and yet sympathetic to the historical surroundings, it was felt that instead of another tenor, the headline performers for this event had to be more contemporary and in keeping with the feminine spirit of the Apsara.

Australian classical stars excelled in this role, with The 7 Sopranos and the electric strings trio Maske delivering a collection of world class performances that had this international audience enthralled, moved, and delighted.

Other highlights of the event included the Godfather of Asian Jazz – Jeremy Montierio in concert, along with carefully choreographed theatrical appearances by Khmer Knights, traditional drummers, beautiful Apsara dancers, and a heartfelt prosperity blessing delivered by the local brotherhood of Buddhist Monks.

Guests were also spoilt with a selection of local Khmer and international cuisine prepared by a host of special guest Chefs who worked alongside the fabulous hospitality team from the Raffles Grand Hotel D’Angkor.

Event production, event styling and signage, staging elements, massive ice carvings, transportation, and site facilities including an extensive power generator farm were provided by combination of local Cambodian vendors and specialist expertise drawn from the FACTOR168 Creative Event Company trusted network of partners based in Bangkok, Singapore, Hong Kong, Bali, Brisbane, and Sydney.

This very special event experience was produced by FACTOR168 Creative Event Company on behalf of one:fortyseven communications for a global information technology corporation with strong corporate social responsibility ties within Cambodia.

    yup yup, pretty impressive. I like how it is a good example of less is more and about maintaining the focus. In this case the actual temple itself and the program is culurally fitting and kinda evolves from one act to the next till they seem to merge with each other and the site. I’m gonna give it an 8.

    extra-ordinary event that I am immensely proud of. we had a great client in Scott Wilson from one:fortyseven, great partners in Rhapsody out of Singapore and the opportunity to work shoulder to shoulder with an old mate and huge FACTOR168 supporter Phil Davis (now GM of Norwest Productions – the guys behind the sound for a stack of Olympic Games and Touring Concerts, my production manager FiFi, and the talented ladies from Maske and 7 Sopranos. The Grand Raffles -venue for the welcome event and catering guys for the Gala were sensational. This event is up there with some of the more amazing events we have designed and delivered for sure!
