If there is a brilliant way to see Vivid, it is certainly by taking a boat around the harbour.

I couldn’t believe the amount of people waiting for boats and special chartered Vivid cruises as we jumped onto one at King Street wharf in Sydney.

The whole thing certainly is a great investment into Sydney – especially in the winter when the city does tend to quiten down for a couple of months.

Leading marketing company Sensis really made its mark with its first major Sydney event partnership with the CEO Club Event as part of the Vivid Sydney 2017 Festival.

Over 200 guests, including myself and a few fellow media types,  were taken on a cruise of the harbour to take in the lighting activations.

That was before a cocktail event at the MCA, hosted by John Allan, Sensis CEO and James Ciuffetelli, Executive General Manager Sensis which featured a sensational performance from Guy Sebastian, marking his last performance before his new album is released.

The star studded guest list included: 

  •  Margaret Zhang – International model and stylist
  •  Adam Goodes and Natalie Croker – 2014 Australian of the Year and Sydney Swans legend
  •  Samuel Johnson – 2017 Gold Logie winner
  •  Kieran Jack and Charlotte Goodlet – Former Sydney Swans captain and his fiancé.
  •  Erin Holland – Former Miss World Australia 2013
  •  Michael Brown – Beauty expert and writer
  •  Lauren Vickers – International model
