On July 22-23, Kay Yasugi joined the team from Corporate Creatures for 2 days of puppet marketing madness at the Australian Business Events Expo 2009 (ABEE). The event was held at the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre in Darling Harbour amidst crowds of enthusiastic visitors. The Corporate Creatures team, led by master-puppeteer Gary Friedman, filmed puppet interviews with exhibitors, did demonstrations showing how the puppeteers operate the lip sync puppets using a TV monitor, and spoke with a myriad of business people about how this company of creative communication can cater for corporate events, skills training, presentations and marketing products and services. A great highlight at the expo was being awarded the ABEE “Best New Product of the Year”. The award was presented by Gwen O’Toole from “Spice Magazine“. Just another sign that puppetry is being recognised in the greater community as a unique and valuable tool for communication!
