Celebrating Staff - Game Show Style

Markey’s recently provided audiovisual support for Centier’s 2016 Employee Meeting held at the Star Theater in Merrillville, Indiana.

To create an atmosphere of celebration at their annual meeting, Centier choose a fun and exciting Price Is Right theme. In addition to their custom built set / game pieces, Markey’s used stage lights, back lights, an audio system, a large screen and other supporting gear to make it feel like the actual game show.

Set-up posed a bit of a challenge given that the theater was not available until 6:00am and needed to be completely set and ready for rehearsals at 10am and a show start at noon. Markey’s rose to the challenge by providing an eleven member crew who successfully finished set up at 9:30am.
