Matt Staunton

22 years international experience scoping, managing and producing major festival-style events of local, national and global importance, focussing on the sports, marketing and entertainment industries.

Matt has been a part of planning, building and producing some of Australia’s and the World’s biggest events, including working on concert and cultural performance experience on the Sydney Olympic Games, Salt Lake 2002 Winter Olympics, Beijing Olympic Games 2008, Melbourne 2006 Commonwealth Games and Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games.
Matt oversaw all logistics and production of the recent Brisbane 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games announcement celebration staging, responsible for site construction and operation. He has rigged on some of the biggest stages in Australia, ensuring that the theming / styling and production elements are delivered harmoniously, without impact to branding or experience. Matt is fully licenced for high risk, major construction, rigging at height and operating heavy machinery, and provides an added layer of logistical and construction knowledge, capability and expertise, in-house as part of SoldOut’s executive team.
Matt was also instrumental in the successful delivery of the first ever F45 National Playoffs event in Darling Harbour that was live broadcast on Fox Sports. This event required building a custom container gym on a float barge, as well as building two large format big screen on individual float barges – then transporting the 3x barges via tug boat, from Glebe in to Darling Harbour.
