Markeys Travels to Omaha for the 2014 ICAN Womens Leadership Conference

For the third year, Markey’s Rental & Staging has partnered with Institute for Career Advancement Needs (ICAN) and Turner Events and Marketing for the ICAN Women’s Leadership Conference held at the CenturyLink Center Omaha on April 9, 2014. New elements were added to the mix this year and included:  “Happy” movie community event held the evening prior to the conference, Men’s Forum and an eye-catching set design featuring 125’ of screens.  Over 2,100 ICAN attendees represented 251 companies from 16 states.

This year’s lineup of keynote speakers included:  Norah O’Donnell of CBS News and GoodThink CEO/Author Shawn Achor – programming united by the “Happiness:  Bending the Bottom Line” conference theme.    



The technology provided by Markey’s Rental & Staging at the 2014 ICAN Women’s Leadership Conference featured:   
  • Six (6) Christie 1920 x 1080 10,000 Lumen projectors, double-stacked, for the center screen
  • Two (2) Christie 1920 x 1080 14,000 Lumen projectors for the screens flanking the center screen
  • Two (2) Christie 1920 x 1080 14,000 Lumen projectors for the wall projection
  • Blended projection via Folsom Encore Presentation Switcher
  • Center screen dimensions:  15’ x 73’
  • Flanking screen dimensions:  15’ x 26.75’

When a screen this large served as the centerpiece to an event, the content was key.  The ICAN team and their graphics department developed the visuals that served as the foundation for this centerpiece, and the Markey’s Rental & Staging production team assisted in locating appropriate video content to support and augment the total experience. The production team, relying on years of field experience, then pulled all of the elements together to create a living, dynamic backdrop befitting of the annual ICAN Women’s Leadership Conference in the Peter Kiewit Grand Ballroom.
