2017 Melbourne Cup

2017 Melbourne Cup
Mediatec Asia Pacific
Melbourne, Australia


The Melbourne Cup is Australia's most prestigious annual Thoroughbred horse race. It is a 3,200 metre race for three-year-olds and over, conducted by the Victoria Racing Club on the Flemington Racecourse in Melbourne, Victoria as part of the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival. It is the richest "two-mile" handicap in the world, and one of the richest turf races. The event starts at 3pm on the first Tuesday in November and is known locally as "the race that stops a nation".

For the 6th straight year Mediatec Asia Pacific supported the Spring Racing Carnival with 20 LED screens and structures of various sizes, setup strategically throughout the Flemington Racecourse site, giving the 308,608 racegoers an uninterrupted view of every race, highlight and presentation.

Check out some images and listen to Tom Hogan, Mediatec Asia Pacific’s Head of LED Display discuss the project we delivered for our clients at the Victorian Racing Club.
