The 2014 National Title I Conference was held February 2-5 at the San
Diego Convention Center in California, with 3,500 attendees. A show this
size required 3 semi-truckloads of audiovisual equipment shipped from our
national warehouse in Indianapolis, 16 Markey’s technicians, and another 16
local professionals to supplement our staff.
Markey’s stage design for the General Session
utilized our pleated columns, lit by Martin 410 LED lights. Martin Performance
moving lights further lit the stage, and Martin Stagebar II were used for
décor. JBL Vertec 4886 line arrays were flown for audio, and Christie 10k
and 14k lumen Roadster projectors provided the I-Mag and graphics. As an
added benefit for attendees, the Super Bowl was shown via another Christie 14k
lumen projector on a 15’ x 26.75’ screen.
Twelve breakout rooms were set for three days, with a
total of 144 sessions for the attendees.
Markey’s Exposition Services also
traveled to San Diego to provide the pipe and drape, carpet, and other expo
needs for the roughly 169
Markey’s Rental & Staging launched a new service
at this conference: lead retrieval and session tracking.
Exhibitors were able to use our
iPods with a Bartizan Connect iLead app pre-loaded. This allowed them to
scan visitors’ badges for data, and also gave the ability to add notes or edit
with the app. Leads were pushed to a website that exhibitors could access
at any time. Session tracking was used so that attendees could be
certified and accredited for the courses they attended.
Other services provided by Markey’s were Registration,
Digital Signage and Session Recording for web use.
