On February 16, 2012, the Junior Achievement Hall of Fame Dinner was held at the Indiana Roof Ballroom to commemorate business leaders in Indiana. This is an annual, black tie event that draws business and civic leaders from all over the state to celebrate the laureates’ induction into the Business Hall of Fame. This year’s honorees were Scott Dorsey, co-founder and CEO of ExactTarget, Jim Irsay, owner and CEO of the Indianapolis Colts, Cathy Langham, president of Langham Logistics and the late Jerry Throgmartin, chairman of the board of hhgregg.
Markey's is the in-house audiovisual provider for The Indiana Roof Ballroom, and our project team worked closely with the JA staff to be sure that the staging, lighting and sound were all appropriate for the elegant tone of the evening. A special concern was that since Junior Achievement participants (children) act as emcees, special care needed to be taken with the podium size – and a step was placed nearby for the smaller children to be able to reach the microphone.
