It may be getting close to the holiday season, but Markey's Rental & Staging is still traveling with customers for their signature events. The 43rd National Athletic Directors Conference was held at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, December 14-18, 2012, and Markey's provided support for two associations.
Our creative and technical team was responsible for stage design and audiovisual services for the National Federation of High Schools (NFHS) Citation Awards. The stage design used (3) 11' x 20' screens, with the center screen placed vertically. The backdrop was an LED drape that gave the illusion of a night sky with stars. Flanking the screens were 25' custom made columns uplit by Martin 410 LED lights, giving each a full shot of color. Four Christie HD 10K-Ms and four Christie Roadster HD 12Ks were used for all projection.
For the National Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association's (NIAAA's) Hall of Fame Dinner, a different look was needed. Two (2) 11' x 3' screens were set on either side of an 18' x 36' screen placed center stage. Pleated columns lit from above with Martin 410 LED lights gave depth and color to the stage design.
The entire event was produced, displayed, and recorded in High Definition.
Markey's Exposition Services provided product and services for the Expo Hall at this event, which held 220 exhibitors. An eye-catching entrance unit was also created that consisted of five monitors across the top, that could display one large graphic or five different ones. The Schedule of Events display had monitors on the side, rotating through a collection of sports photos for visual interest.
