Surf Life Saving Queensland

Surf Life Saving Queensland is the state’s peak beach safety and rescue authority and is one of the largest volunteer-based community service organisations in Australia. SLSQ have accepted Star Outdoor as its preferred Marquee and Outdoor Event Branding provider. We donate a number of sun protection and promotion products for use at SLSQ events throughout the year.

 

Results: 

Star Outdoor has been a proud partner of Surf Life Saving Queensland for nearly four years and, during that time, they have developed into a valued and vital supporter of our organisation. Star Outdoor supplies us with a wide range of products including marquees for our state-wide professional lifeguard service, and signage for our sporting and other beach-related events. Clubs also utilise their equipment across Queensland beaches as part of their weekend patrol services.  Any gear and equipment  we use on the beach must be of the highest-quality to withstand the long-term effects of salt, sand, sun and surf. Star Outdoor not only provide us with quality products but exceptional service as well.”

Tour de Cure

Star Outdoor has been a proud supporter of Tour de Cure since its inception. We have a personal understanding of how cancer affƒects individuals and families from all walks of life. Our MD, Mark Star, has participated in three Tour de Cures and cycled over 3,500km to help raise over $25,000,000 to help find a cure for cancer. Every year, Star Outdoor donates marquees and banners to help raise awareness and promote the fantastic work of this organisation.

 

Results: 

When Tour de Cure started out in 2007, Star Outdoor took an enormous leap of faith by backing us from the very beginning. Managing Director, Mark Star, came on our first Signature Tour from Brisbane to Sydney and kindly hosted our very first Signature Tour dinner. Since then, Star Outdoor’s high-quality marquees have protected the Tour de Cure family from the elements at our tours and events across Australia. Their feather banners, pop-up banners and fence mesh have helped to promote our brand, strengthen our relationships with our corporate partners, and raise awareness about cancer prevention. Star Outdoor’s colourful pop-up banners for our Be Fit, Be Healthy, Be Happy program take centre stage on our school visits. So far, they’ve helped to raise awareness about cancer prevention to more than 81,000 Australian school children. We cannot thank Star Outdoor enough for their unwavering support and generosity. With partners like Star Outdoor, we will cure cancer. 

 

Be Fit, Be Healthy, Be Happy Program:

“According to scientific research, 1 in 3 cancers are preventable by making simple lifestyle changes. On every tour we ride, we take our cancer awareness and prevention program – Be Fit, Be Healthy, Be Happy – to the local primary schools and communities we visit along the way. Our goal is to take this program to every school-aged child in Australia. We are so grateful to Star Outdoor for their marquees, feather banners and pop-up banners, which help us promote this life-changing program. Together we can cure cancer.”

Amazonia Specialties

Amazonia supplies sustainably-sourced superfood products, best known for its nutrient-rich Acai berry range. The business has seen phenomenal growth in a short timeframe, demonstrating just how well they have been able to build their brand and target a niche market.

 

Requirements:

Amazonia products are supplied to leading health food stores, independent supermarkets, vitamin shops and cafes all over Australia. To promote the Acai range, Amazonia commissioned Star Outdoor to produce bright purple Acai branded feather banners for each supplier reselling their products.

 

Solution:

Star Outdoor provides Feather Banners at every location selling Amazonia products. With strong branding reflected in its vivid purple colour, the feather banner acts as an easy indicator for passing traffic and has inevitably contributed to the company’s exponential brand recognition and growth over the past few years.

Amazonia is now among the most recognisable brands on the Australian health food scene, selling more than 40 tonnes of frozen Acai product under its signature purple flag each month. Whilst Feather Banners are their “flagship” outdoor branding solution; other products such as A-Frames, Wall Banners & Café Umbrellas also promote the brand with consistency which has provided a solid foundation to introduce a number of other superfood products to the range with great success.

 

Results: 

“Star outdoor provided high quality flags that has been a key part of our national marketing strategy for our superfood smoothie range. We often get comments like “your product is everywhere” which is a reflection of the prominence of our flags and its strong colour which draws awareness to our brand and our partner cafes.”
