Rio Tinto Groundbreaker Exhibit – Perth Royal Show 2016

Barrett Exhibition Group were commissioned by the Brand Agency to project manage, manufacture, print, install and remove a custom printed marquee and 4 x custom fitted out shipping containers as well as an interactive “spinning heads display” within a 1,750sqm area.

During the Royal Show over 35,000 people visited the Rio Tinto exhibition.

Designed as an educational and interactive exhibition, Royal Show patrons were able to engage with and learn about Rio Tinto’s history. The display had six different areas, each offering very different experiences.

They included Building our State, Growing Strong Bonds, Inspiring Future Minds, Respecting Our Lands, Kicking Big Goals and Working Stronger Together.

Key attractions included a Komatsu dump truck, which was so large it had to be constructed on site, a nature play area and an innovation zone with bicycle powered video simulation, 3D printing, robot trucks and virtual reality headsets.

Barrett Exhibition Group handled all logistics from set up to removal and liaised with the Agricultural Society to ensure that the Oval was returned in pristine condition after the Royal Show ended as well.
