"Christmas at the QVB is unlike any other – from its sheer scale and beauty, to the place it has in the hearts of people that come in to experience it each year. It truly creates magical moments. Behind the scenes, the hard work and dedication needed to get it ready for launch is nothing short of epic and the team at Chas Clarkson have it down to a fine art form.
Negotiating a heritage building, council restrictions and a 5 night bump is just the start of the process required to bring it to life. Navigating such a complex building is enough to make anyone nervous, however Chas rises to any challenge and is able to be agile, strategic and collaborative in their approach. The team bring a sense of positivity and determination to any task whilst also a consistent passion for the project that inspires those around them.
Their wealth of experience allows us to lean into their knowledge and trust in their capabilities – always delivering an iconic and stunning Christmas at the QVB."

"The City of Greater Dandenong was seeking Christmas decorations to make a striking impact in our new central civic square, which attracts around 20,000 visitors per week. Chas Clarkson was successful through a tender process, and recommended a 9 metre high led-lit Santa and Reindeer. The size, style and presence of the decoration provided a landmark attraction and great photo opportunities for residents and visitors to the centre, both day and night. Chas Clarkson staff were extremely professional through the whole process of liaison, installation, dismantle and storage. They provided peace of mind with their attention to detail, communication and customer service, all of which were well above my expectations."
