The Show

Marriot Corporate General SessionThe Corporate General Session needed a design to light the entire room to create a 360° experience for the attendees. The low ceiling and fixed hanging points in the room called for an effective truss system as well. The set included a large main stage and a secondary thrust stage which needed to be lit with keeping the talent in mind and without affecting the large 15’ x 45’ projection backdrop used for I-Mag, PowerPoint, and video playback.

The Work

Marriot Corporate General SessionOver 200’ of black truss was used to optimize lighting positions for all three sides of stage thrust. (18) MAC700 Wash fixtures supplied deep color to light the venue and maintain the theme of the event. (12) Vari*Lite VL-3000 Spots were used to project patterns and color on set as well as to animate the room and excite the audience. A full conventional lighting system was used to provide an even stage wash which resulted in high quality image magnification. (6) PixelLine 110ec LED strip lights illuminated the drape on either side of video backdrop.

The Results

Marriot Corporate General SessionThis meeting included speeches from various leaders of the company and also included a dinner event and a “Dancing With The Stars” reenactment. From enhancing the meeting graphics with lights to flying in a mirror ball for “Dancing With The Stars”, this lighting system was flexible enough to handle anything the client wished. The color changing LED and intelligent lights themed the entire room in company colors from the first meeting to the final dinner and accentuated the message of the meeting making this show a success from start to finish.
