Taking BIG corporate shows on the road
2012 - New Orleans
Some people just love making a big scene. We do too. So when the folks at Shock Theory contacted Solomon Group about providing creative and technical production services for a large-scale corporate event in New Orleans, we got busy creating a spectacle. Well, more than one, actually.
Over 12,000 visitors traveled from around the world in September to attend the 2012 Organo Gold International Convention in New Orleans. From the beginning, the event offered our team some unique challenges. The convention planned to host events at not one, but three of the city’s top venues: an opening celebration at Champions Square, a live concert at Hyatt Regency New Orleans, and two days of general sessions at the Smoothie King Center. And it all had to be created, managed and staged in less than two weeks.
Creating the large-scale environment for Organo’s arena event was the biggest task. Solomon Group’s work in the Smoothie King Center included a stage set with an LED video screen measuring nearly 2,000 square feet (almost half the size of a basketball court). Our team also provided a 6-camera, live HD production package including a 30-foot jib, 138 moving lights, as well as full audio production, truss rigging, scenic design services and fabrication.
2013 - 2016 - Traveling Nationally and Internationally
Our client was so thrilled with the quality of their 2012 International Convention in New Orleans, they chose Solomon Group as the company’s go-to production services partner moving forward. In January 2013, our next event for ORGANO was held at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas.
Since then, our team has logged thousands of miles traveling coast to coast to produce similar shows for ORGANO in Anaheim, CA, Atlanta, GA, New York, NY, Las Vegas, NV, San Diego, CA, San Antonio, TX, St. Louis, MO and Tampa, FL. We have also produced international shows for the brand in Rome, Italy and Lyon, France.
No matter where it happens to be, for us, a cavernous, empty space is just an enormous blank canvas waiting to be transformed, painted with light and filled with possibilities. And in just the past two years, Solomon Group’s talented artists have lent their signature brushstrokes to create exciting scenes for ORGANO wherever their audiences gather.
