Lanxess, a giant luxury vehicle plastics and polymers manufacturer, recently tasked us with turning all four of the Hilton’s hotel ballrooms into one very large presentation of people and graphics. One end of the area was turned into a huge stage, backdrop, and projection screen of the likes usually seen only in big city sports arenas.
Looking any direction but the stage, the view was dominated by gigantic graphics, ads, and infographics pertaining to the company, their products, and activities. The grand-format fabric printed graphics continued outside the ballrooms with more informationals, along with product pedestals. The corporate event went off without a hitch, with the stage set, graphics, and event planners making it all come together in a cohesive, and rather impressive form.
Looking at the main picture, you’ll see that the ballroom goes on past the stage (check the ceiling corners). Our company built this stage set for the event, along with producing all structures the graphics stretched across throughout the event.
I don’t want to get too much into describing the structures we made from scratch to support the rear projection screen and set, but suffice it to say they were no joke. It was height adjustable, covered in pulleys, aircraft cable, struts, supports, and bolts to keep everything safe and solid.
The staging also was custom, which you’ll see better angles of in the other images in this post. The large, angular side walls are created out of a slightly more monstrous version of the frames you see common in our structures and other corporate events design.
The ladders, lift, and employees are also ours. Would have been great to get a fully lit, without workers kind of shot, but we just didn’t end up having the time.
