The ci Solution


cievents created a guest experience that became the envy of all the attendees at the track.

With a world-class menu designed by Adam d’Sylva and a prime view of the start and finish line, cievents created a bespoke lounge combining modern luxury and a relaxed environment among the center of the formula one action.

McLaren Skydeck


cievents arranged a 3-day program of exclusive experiences including VIP pit tours, helicopter tours of the Albert Park circuit, customised McLaren gifts and bespoke transfer services.

Off-track guests were treated to a luxurious cocktail party at Mon Bijou’s exquisite penthouse space with panoramic views of Melbourne's skyline, and a guest appearance from Jensen Button. The 120 guests then came together for dinner at Melbourne's most awarded fine dining restaurant – Vue de Monde.

ci delivered a striking, unique and memorable experience within the required budget and with a very limited lead time.

The McLaren Skydeck Suite was the envy of its competitors and one of the best places to sit back, mingle and experience the Formula 1 Australian Grand Prix.
