Leading audiovisual provider AVPartners has partnered with American mobile event app developer DoubleDutch to deliver the latest in event technology innovation to Australian shores.
Events supported by AVPartners can now leverage DoubleDutch’s social mobile apps to increase attendee engagement and create a platform for guests and event organisers to communicate with each other.
The exclusive partnership is helping break new ground in Australia by leveraging international MICE trends in digital, social and app technology.
DoubleDutch has built the first ever social mobile event app that allows users to check-in to activities, bookmark favourite events, and network with fellow guests. These features encourage attendees to engage in event content and provide a powerful source of social data for organisers to improve their events in real time. The app is initially available for events at hotels throughout Australia through AVPartners.
AVPartners Founding Partner Gary Hackett said, “The partnership with DoubleDutch is boosting our ability to deliver a highly connected, participatory and dynamic event experience for event delegates. It’s an ideal partnership.”
DoubleDutch CEO and co-founder Lawrence Coburn said, “The days when conferences were solely focused on the in-person experience are long gone. The modern conference delegate is not only technologically savvy and well connected, but they also expect a seamlessly integrated online and offline event experience.”
AVPartners is working closely with their partner venues across the country to deliver a highly tailored, localised and cutting edge app offering for their clients. They have already launched the app at Novotel Twin Waters Resort and will roll out the app to their remaining partner venues throughout the year.
Jubilee, the longest-running and most iconic show on the famed Las Vegas Strip, will reopen at Bally’s Las Vegas on Monday, March 17 after undergoing a major transformation. Tickets to the revitalised show are on sale now.
Donn Arden’s Jubilee first opened on July 30, 1981 and quickly became a staple in Las Vegas entertainment. To this day the unparalleled grand spectacle remains to be the last show of its kind, featuring the Strip’s only remaining authentic showgirls. While the best of the show’s main elements will be preserved as a nod to the original production, the choreography, staging and music will be refreshed for today’s audience.
Leading the charge in the modernisation of Jubilee is one of the world’s most celebrated creative directors and choreographers, Frank Gatson Jr. Gatson’s extensive background in the performing arts has led him to an impressive list of accomplishments working with top-notch celebrities and brands. With more than 30 years of experience under his belt, Gatson has provided direction for commercials for brands such as L’Oreal, American Express, Pepsi and Samsung, and has collaborated in several movies including “Living Out Loud”, the famous “Respect” number with Aretha Franklin in “Blues Brothers 2000” and characters in the Disney movie “Hercules”. Gatson has had the opportunity to choreograph and direct music videos, special appearances and tours for the world’s most celebrated artists, including Michael Jackson, J. Lo, Rihanna, Diana Ross, Vanessa Williams, En Vogue, Usher, Mariah Carey and The Band Perry. His dance routines have earned him a record six MTV Video Music Awards for Best Choreography, the most in the awards’ 30-year history.
Gatson’s professionalism, attention to detail and creative vision have been the keys to his success and are some of the many reasons why he has had a 15-year working relationship with R&B superstar, Beyoncé. Since the days of Destiny’s Child, Gatson has been by Beyoncé’s side, transforming her image and developing iconic moves like the hand gesture from “Single Ladies”. In 2012, Gatson was nominated for a Grammy for co-directing Beyoncé’s “I am… Tour,” which became the best-selling music DVD of 2010.
In anticipation of the show’s reopening, Gatson has assembled some of the industry’s most talented individuals to help him bring his vision into reality:
Lead Choreographer – Anthony Burrell
Anthony Burrell has danced alongside several artists, including Beyoncé, Katy Perry, Rihanna, Alicia Keys, Destiny’s Child, Mary J. Blige, Ke$ha, Brandy, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams, doing everything from choreographing their live tours to shaping their music videos. Burrell’s television appearances include “So You Think You Can Dance”, “Abby’s Ultimate Dance Competition”, “Dance Moms” and “Glee”. He has toured the world as a principal dancer with Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre, and also starred in the national Broadway tour of “Come Fly Away”.
Co-Choreographer – Chris Grant
Before Chris Grant turned 21, he had achieved goals and dreams that some could not even imagine. Not only was he personally chosen by Beyoncé as assistant choreographer for her riveting “I Am… Sasha Fierce” world tour, but was also handpicked by Michael Jackson for his much anticipated “This Is It” tour. Grant has worked with notable stars including Jennifer Lopez, Alex Gaudino, Keyshia Cole, Brandy and The Band Perry, and has also worked on high profile shows such as “Glastonbury”, “Good Morning America” and the “2011 MTV Video Music Awards”.
Co-Choreographer – Danielle Polanco
At the age of 17, Danielle Polanco booked her first professional job with Beyoncé – but that wouldn’t be her last. Polanco is best known for being the leading lady in Omarion’s video “Touch” and for portraying the role of Missy Serrano in the hit movie “Step Up 2: The Streets”. Polanco has also choreographed for Janet Jackson, J. Lo, Usher, Chris Brown, Eve and Estelle, and has appeared as a dancer in more than 20 music videos with top artists such as Lady Gaga, Ne-Yo, LL Cool J, Nelly, Amerie and Kat Deluna. She also performed in the smash hit revival of “West Side Story” on Broadway, in which she played the role of Consuela.
Music Creative Director – Kimberly Burse
With more than 20 years in the entertainment industry, Kimberly Burse knew that she would be involved with music since the early age of seven. Burse has worked for the industry’s most notable record labels including Motown Records, MCA, Sony and Music World Music with some of the industry’s leading recording artists including Destiny’s Child, Beyoncé, Jay Z, Mary J. Blige and Kelly Rowland.
Production and Lighting Designer – Justin Collie
With over 30 years of experience under his belt, Justin Collie is skilled in all aspects of stagecraft, from equipment set-up and design creation to programming and operating lighting control systems. Collie has worked with artists such as Prince, Bon Jovi, Beyoncé, Green Day, Maxwell and The Beastie Boys.

My, how time flies when you’re feeling Zen! This spring marks the one-year anniversary of the world’s first Nobu Hotel and the world’s largest Nobu Restaurant and Lounge Caesars Palace Las Vegas. To further mark the occasion, the crown-jewel of the property – the impressive 10,300 square foot Nobu Villa – will make its debut. The ultimate skytop villa, the Nobu Villa is luxurious and sumptuous yet relaxed and modern. The remarkable space offers an expansive 4,700 square-foot outdoor terrace overlooking the center of the Las Vegas Strip with sweeping views. Additional standout features include a private Nobu sushi bar, ultramodern media and game room, gym and massage room, private elevator and art gallery.
SECRET MENU ITEMS AT NOBU CAESARS PALACE ARE STEALTHY AND DELICIOUS
Shhh! Sometimes, the most delicious thing about knowing a secret is being able to share it. That certainly rings true with the secret menu items available at Nobu Restaurant and Lounge Caesars Palace. While it’s no secret that Nobu Caesars Palace is home to the only Nobu Teppan in the US and is the only Nobu in Las Vegas to feature brick oven dishes, what is hidden is the fact there are a number of items that are available that aren’t featured on the menu. Vegetarian and vegan sushi items are always available including avocado tartar, yuba tiradito style, okra dry miso, tofu new style and cucumber sunomono. From the kitchen, dishes including brick oven roasted baby vegetable, tofu toban, cabbage steak, heirloom tomato ceviche, and vegetable skewers are available anytime.
There are also a number of Nobu Signature items that can be prepared gluten free to accommodate any and all gluten sensitivities and intolerances, which include but are not limited to the Yellowtail Sashimi with Jalapeno, the New Style Sashimi, Alaskan Black Cod and Beef Tenderloin Toban-yaki to name a few.
THREE NEW HOKUSETSU SAKÉS STRAIGHT FROM SAKÉ ISLAND NOW AVAILABLE
Brewed during the coldest days of the year on Sado, the largest island in the Sea of Japan, superior, high-quality Hokusetsu saké is exclusively available at Nobu restaurants worldwide. Now, this award-winning brand introduces three new sakes available at Nobu Restaurant and Lounge Caesars Palace. Released with limited quantities, Daiginjo YK35 Shizuku is made from Yamada-nishiki rice – usually only used to make the sakes that are entered in competitions. After fermentation is complete, a dripping procedure is used instead of an ordinary procedure of pressing. This process is the reason why Daiginjo YK35 Shizuku delivers a delicate yet deep taste. Hokusetsu made Junmai Daiginjo Koshitanrei Hikari sake from a special type of sake rice called Koshi-Tanrei. This sake rice, or “sakamai” in Japanese, is harvested by farmers exclusive to Hokusetsu. This award-winning Hikari version has the highest quality among “Koshitanrei” brands. Hikari is “Genshu” which means it is undiluted. It has a powerful but elegant taste. The design of the bottle is also special and unique. The most exclusive sake, Daiginjo YK35 Shizuku Jukusei Koshu means aged in Japanese and is $3000. Daiginjo YK35-shizuku is aged for three years under low temperature in the Hoskusetsu brewery to make this version of sake. By waiting years to mature, taste becomes complex and creates more depth. When compared with fresh Daiginjo YK35-shizuku, there is a more calm fragrance but richer taste.

NOBU HOSPITALITY ANNOUNCES NOBU HOTEL MANILA AND NOBU HOTEL MIAMI
As the world’s first Nobu Hotel Caesars Palace Las Vegas approaches its first anniversary and the upcoming debut of its crown-jewel Nobu Villa this spring, Nobu Hospitality announces that the luxury hotel brand is further expanding marking the first Nobu Hotel in Asia and a second US Nobu Hotel in Miami. The masterful collaboration between Chef Nobu Matsuhisa, actor Robert De Niro and Hollywood film producer Meir Teper, Nobu Hospitality will open both the Nobu Hotel Manila and Nobu Hotel Riyadh in 2014 and have announced plans to open Nobu Miami.
“Opening the first-ever Nobu Hotel at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas serves as a great launch-pad for us given the Hotel’s already established name for service, style and as the go-to destination within Las Vegas,” said Nobu Hospitality CEO Trevor Horwell. “In approaching our first anniversary at the Nobu Hotel Caesars Palace, we are excited about the impending launch of the 10,300 sq.ft Nobu Villa which shall raise the bar yet again in luxury accommodation and as the ultimate entertainment venue in Las Vegas with its 4,700 outdoor terrace and spectacular view over Las Vegas, Our experience in creating, launching and offering the Nobu Hotel at Caesars Palace underscores the potential to globally expand our hospitality brand further and we are excited to bring this stylish experience to the Nobu Hotel Manila and beyond.”
WARM UP THIS SEASON WITH CHEF NOBU’S SIGNATURE RAMEN
Besides its extraordinary taste and multitude of flavors, Chef Nobu Matsuhisa firmly believes that Ramen is the one great dish that can soothe the soul and warm up the insides. Considered the ultimate comfort food and available at Nobu Caesars Palace Restaurant and Lounge, Chef Nobu’s interpretation of Ramen is unmatched and is certain to revitalize the soul. So much that the New Man Ramen is named by Chef Nobu himself:
“If you’re not feeling very well, and you eat my ramen, I’m certain that it will make you feel like a new man the next day,” says Chef Nobu.
To create this comforting and popular concoction, Nobu uses traditional Ramen noodles. The broth is cooked with a combination of chicken and pork for more than 24 hours and is finished with a miso tare base. The New Man Ramen is accompanied with menma (bamboo shoots), bean sprouts, corn, and a traditional Japanese soft boiled egg. To top it off, the soothing ramen includes pork belly that is prepared in a three step process; it’s cured, braised and then pressed so when it’s sliced, each delicious piece is the same size. Finished with cilantro, Serrano peppers, and chili threads, the New Man Ramen is also served with sesame seeds, dry miso, and fried garlic chips in Ryu (chili oil).
Available on the world’s only Nobu in-room dining menu, guests staying at the first-ever Nobu Hotel Caesars Palace Las Vegas can enjoy the New Man Ramen inside the comfort of their perfectly-appointed hotel room. The New Man Ramen is also available for lunch at the world’s largest Nobu Restaurant at Caesars Palace.

“Food & Wine showcases the breadth and depth of AC’s culinary offerings and brings our unique, outdoor wine festival to a national audience of foodies who might not have considered Atlantic City as a foodie destination,” said Liza Cartmell, Atlantic City Alliance president.
