Finish Line once again choose the JW Marriott Indianapolis to
host their annual managers conference.
Having partnered with
Finish Line in the past, Markey’s knew the key to a successful event was
to be flexible and agile, able to adjust equipment needs for the various
meetings and events. The meeting entails a series of events with a mix of
sets, both large and small, and the ability to switch them for different
sessions and for different experiences as the scope of the meetings range from
educational to social.
Finish Line is in the
process of updating all of their North American stores with a fresh, bold,
modern look. The Markey’s creative team designed the general session room
with this in mind and incorporated several of the new store designs into the
set. One of those designs being the five vertical stripes flown
from the ceilings in the new stores. Markey’s carried this look into the
general session room by hanging 60 foot Pixel Par LED strip lighting. Having
only seen the proposed room design in renders and drawings, it was a great experience to see the Finish
Line Executive Committee wow’d with the finished product!
Other technical highlights
include a 15’x45’ center screen and (2) 11’x20’ outer screens using Barco HD
20K projectors. The high definition switching system included the
Watchout package and Barco FSN / Sony HXC-100 I-MAG package. Intelligent
lights were programmed and controlled via Jands lighting console.
The concert audio package supported national artists G-Eazy and French Montana.
