The frames contained images associated with the burlesque/Moulin Rouge theme, such as red lips, legs with fishnets and Parisian scenes. As the music built the images altered at a quicker and quicker pace, until at the crescendo fireworks exploded from the frames and can-can dancers appeared on stage to perform. With guests left astounded by the effects entrées were served. As people finished eating the red drapes changed to green and opened to reveal celebrity Tiffany Woods on stage who proceeded to perform a stunning burlesque routine. Lunch was then served with the wall projections reverting back to the ornate picture frames but this time displaying moving and constantly changing imagery inspired by IGT's Bluechip Neo games. This live art gallery continued throughout lunch when IGT MD Andrew Hely then took to the stage to thank guests for coming and introducing the new gaming machine. The drapes dramatically turned to blue (the same colour as the Bluechip Neo logo), and opened to the sound effects of electro static. Suddenly all sound and light were cut, immersing the room in dark silence! Matrix-style numbers and codes started to fill the walls, gradually changing into the gaming machine wheels, and over the loudspeaker a voice announced 'Introducing the Bluechip Neo'. Spotlights turned on to reveal an awe inspiring 3D sequence of three 12 ft high by 3ft wide projections of the Neo machines across the walls. Guests were taken on a virtual tour with images spinning and rotating to show the whole machine, zooming in on specific features and arrows pointing out each element with stylized text boxes reinforcing the different aspects. This was extremely dynamic, engaging and informative for the guests and a fantastically innovative way of showcasing the new machine. ABOVE: Zoe Naylor and Barry Humphries (aka Sir Les Patterson).
