AGB Events has revealed plans to expand and bring its “vision and talents to festivals and other iconic events and locations around the world”.
AGB Events was founded in 2006 by Anthony Bastic, who has spent decades in the entertainment and events industry, including as creative director for the Sydney 2000 Olympic and Paralympic Games and the recent Invictus Games Sydney 2018, he is also curator of Destination NSW’s annual Vivid Light Sydney.
Bastic commented: “We specialise in imagining, producing and delivering cutting edge creative and cultural event concepts. AGB Events has a long track record of developing unique content that engages audiences in superb spectacles and we plan to bring our extensive expertise and skills to organisations worldwide.
“Our strength is in storytelling in a way that resonates, excites and deepens understanding, whether that’s for governments, arts festivals, heritage sites and events or corporations – capturing imaginations in innovative ways with light and sound, creating digital stories for content from the present day to content that may be centuries old. We can do that on the largest scale imaginable, as we did recently for Parrtjima, or for the most intimate of gatherings.”
The AGB Events management team now includes event logistics professional Todd Severson, who is the company’s chief operating officer. He has a track record of ten Olympic Games, G8 and G20 meetings, the Commonwealth Games and an edition of the Sundance Film Festival. Severson also served for a four-year period as director of games services with the Rio 2016 Organising Committee for the Olympic and Paralympic Games.
AGB Events is also expanding their creative consultancy discipline. Bastic concluded: “We are working with a series of international clients to help them embed unique creative solutions in their cultural placemaking plans. Spanning major international events, cultural institutions, and urban precincts, this discipline area of AGB is fast becoming a major expansion area of our creative agency.”
