Daniel Morcombe was abducted in 2003 while waiting for a bus and Australia rallied behind parents Bruce and Denise Morcombe as the search for answers and Daniel began. The Daniel Morcombe Foundation begun in 2005 and has gained momentum through it'd dedication to educating children, parents, teachers and communities on child safety.
Through liaising with the school, local council, Blask Photography for aerial and on ground imagery, SupaTurf, media, Shared Marketingand the Daniel Morcombe Foundation, the application of a 100 square metre (1076 square feet) image of Daniel Morcombe and the foundation's logo was created for a spectacular welcome to special guests, Bruce and Denise Morcombe.
The Daniel Morcombe Foundation image was applied two days before the scheduled visit to allow for weather contingencies with the presentation being completed from the initial robotic outlining through to the final painting taking just over 4 hours. It was the first time an image of Daniel had ever been replicated on the ground and was a special moment for all those involved on the day including the 650 students of the school, dressed in red, who surrounded the image to show their support.

Griffith University announces partnership for 2018 Commonwealth Games
It was a busy day on campus today at the Gold Coast campus of Griffith University with the announcement of their affiliation with the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games.
Special guest speaker Commonwealth Games Minister, Kate Jones praised the involvement of Griffith University who will not only be acting as a venue for some of the events, but will also be providing training facilities for the athletes who will be staying in the athletes village across the road from the University. The village is expected to hold up to 6000 officials and athletes.
The other big announcement was the offer of 250 internships which will be available to students throughout areas such as programming planning, physio, events organisation, sports management, human resources and business.
Griffith University will be beginning construction on an Olympic sized swimming pool for the Commonwealth Games which will remain after the games for the use of students.
GrassAds was privileged to be invited to create a memorable visual display on the athletics track for the VIP guests to see. The 2018 Commonwealth Games logo was proudly displayed by the side of the Griffith University logo which has been used in this format throughout the launch event.
The logo layed 95x35 meters in size and added a fantastic atmosphere and talking piece for the event. Every news station on the Gold Coast attended the event with all networks giving extensive coverage to the 3D logos on the sports field below. Click here to view the coverage from the Ten Network. The logos were converted to 3D through our software technology and were specifically tailored to the viewing platform of the Medical building 8 stories up where the event was held.

What a match! The Wallabies snatched a victory away in from the Springboks as the game went into overtime in front of a crowd of over 37,000 spectators at Suncorp Stadium on the weekend. The Wallabies weren't the only winners with the games sponsors scoring overtime coverage on the field both in the stadium and to the hundreds of thousands of viewers around the world watching the televised game.
With a total of 10 logos to be laid out and painted in the one day, it was great to see our licensee making good use of our autonomous robotic line-marking technology.
Barack Obama visits The University of Queensland
The 2014 G20 Summit was recently held in Brisbane, Australia and played host to the leaders from 20 of the worlds most powerful economies. Many of the leaders visited venues in and around the Brisbane area upon their visit but none was more watched and anticipated than President Barack Obama's visit to The University of Queensland (or UQ) where he made a speech to 12oo invited guests including high school and university students.
Now referred to as the 'Brisbane Speech', President Obama spoke of global issues and issues specific to Australia. The speech was well received with the President of the United States of America receiving several standing ovations. Obama further impressed the attendees with his generosity of time in meeting many of the guests after his speech had concluded.
The vice chancellor of the University of Queensland said it was an honour for the University to be the chosen venue for the Presidents only public engagement upon his G20 visit.
A Day at San Dimas
If you happened to be out for a game of golf this past week at the magnificent San Dimas Golf Course, in San Dimas California, you may have noticed a bit of extra activity on some of the fairways.
The GrassAds Robot was busy at work for a corporate golf day, getting some of the sponsors logos out on the course guaranteeing great exposure for the event. The process was fast and hassle free with the robot discreetly marking out the lines and only needing to dodge one or two golf balls.
The team at GrassAds has noticed a definate increase in inquiries over the past twelve months from business's wanting to make their mark and obtain more exposure for their corporate brand. Corporate golf days are also on the rise with business's and venues alike appreciating the need to impress their sponsors and by allowing them the opportunity to receive extra recognition on the day.
If you would like any more information on how GrassAds can work with you for your next corporate golf day please contact us today.

The 2014 World Cup Kicks Off in Brazil
On the 12th of June 2014, Soccer aka Football fans, around the world settled into their armchairs and watched the beginning of a month long tournament between 31 countries from around the world.
During the next four weeks, 64 matches will be played, dreams will be crushed and euphoria will be reached as teams battle it out to win the title of Winners of the FIFA World Cup.
Football (or Soccer as it's known in the USA and Australia), has one of the most passionate group o
f followers out of any other sporting code around the world and also some of the biggest sponsors. We can expect to see flashes of Nike, Adidas, Puma and any other sporting label who had a few million to throw around for sponsorship.
However, with the expected global audience expecting to exceed the last World Cup final of 715 million viewers, we think that their sponsorship money is pretty spent.
Making Sure Your Corporate Golf Day hits a Hole-in-One
Corporate Golf Days are days often filled with networking, selling your business, making new contacts, supporting a charity and then a bit of golf on the side.
If you are sponsoring a golf day or are the venue hosting the event, ensure that the sponsors don't get lost amongst the days busy schedule. The most effective branding is done where people are drawing their attention and on a golf day, the attention would be on the golf course.
With GrassAds robotic technology, there are no restrictions where company logos can be placed. A company logo can be placed on the Tee, on the greens, rolling slopes and even around the hole itself. We recently completed a number of logos for corporate sponsors at Anthem Country Club in Nevada.
So next corporate event, make sure your business isn't getting left behind and make a strong and lasting impression - which can be easily removed for the next golf event.
Remember, a lot of business deals are made and broken on the Golf Course!
