We have been keeping busy this summer month! We’ve handled a few small-scale events, as well as some on the larger side. But regardless of size, our team treats every event with an equal amount of importance. July has been a month of gaming, pharmaceuticals, corporate, retail, and non-profit occasions! Keep reading to take a look through the various events that we have provided event technology for the past month.
Pokémon National Championships | July 3-5th | Indianapolis, IN
This event gathers Pokémon fans across the country to play games against one another. They have TCG tournaments for all ages- but more advanced players participate in Junior, Senior, and Master divisions. The winners gain points toward their own World Championship invitation! Reaction AV provides technology for Pokémon events throughout the year. For this specific championship, we provided the event technology for the main stage, demo, area, King of the Hill, and included all computers and audio! We can’t wait to see what the World Championships will hold for us in August!
Lucasfilm @ Comic-Con San Diego | July 9-12th | San Diego, CA
Reaction has worked with the world famous company Lucasfilm, on so many different events. It only made sense for Lucasfilm to reach out to us to provide the audio visual technology for their booth at Comic-Con! Comic-Con is a multi- genre entertainment and comic convention held annually in different cities through out the world with San Diego being the biggest and all independent. It includes panels, seminars, workshops, previews of upcoming feature films, and portfolio review sessions with top video game companies. Every big gaming company makes sure to secure their spot at this huge event! For Lucasfilm’s booth, Reaction AV provided an LED wall, rigging, lighting, and audio technology! Check out how great their booth looked:
Texas Pharmacy Association Annual Meeting | July 9- 12th | The Woodlands, TX
Texas Pharmacy Association is the leading advocate for Texas’ pharmacists and all other pharmacy professions. They focus on providing education for new innovations within healthcare, as well as empowering pharmacists to be effective healthcare providers. To achieve these goals, TPA hosts a series of annual meetings, expos, conventions, and seminars across the country. Reaction AV has been a longtime partner of TPA, providing them with audio visual solutions for the past 9 years. For this annual meeting, we produced event technology for a large general session, 15-20 breakout rooms, the Jeopardy Game Event, as well as offsite functions.
After this year’s event, we received this sweet comment from Lisa Goerlitz, who is the Director of Member Service, “I am very pleased (with the outcome of event)! Your team is phenomenal! See you next year!”
IAAP Annual Summit | July 25-29th | Louisville, KY
International Association of Administrative Professionals is a non-profit for office professionals. IAAP strives to be the premier network and resource for those in administrative positions across the country, ensuring that individuals working in these roles have the opportunity to connect, learn, lead and excel in their lives. Reaction AV is the official AV provider for IAAP and a member! The annual meeting is composed of general sessions, workshops, and seminars that attendees can gain new insight on cutting edge technology and skills, build lasting connections, and learn to lead with confidence. For this, we needed to provide event technology for the Leadership Boot Camp, Leadership Academy, Leadership Academy break out rooms, Photo Shoot Room, Technology Workshops, Snacks and Facts Rooms, Genius Bar/Learning Table, as well as the opening, foundation, and closing celebrations.
In the previous years, we have gotten great feedback from IAAP, including this testimonial from Tracy Orpin who is the Conference and Meetings Manager, “RAV has become part of the IAAP ‘Family’ as they have a Wonderful ‘can-do’ attitude which allows me to relax and know that the AV is in good hands. I have RAV as my AV company for every event I have throughout the year. In all of my contracts I negotiate and ensure there are no additional fees to bring in RAV, as I don’t want to have to work with anyone else. I know I can count on them to be responsible, work within or below my budget and always be there ‘ready’ whenever something unexpected arises on site at any of my events. They are courteous, helpful and a solid team. I love working with them. They are a planners dream team.”
Gen Con Indy | July 30th – August 2nd | Indianapolis, IN
Gen Con is the biggest tabletop gaming convention in North America. Attendees engage in a variety of tournaments and interactive game sessions. For over 45 years, Gen Con has been setting trends and breaking records. Reaction AV supports Gen Con’s entire event technology from the opening ceremony, badge registration, exhibit booths, various open game areas, breakout rooms, and the wrap party. Gen Con happened to be Reaction AV’s very first client and we have been providing for their events ever since! This year the event drew over 50,000 unique visitors.
We have been getting great feedback from Gen Con while working with them, including this comment from Peter D. Adkison the Founder of Gen Con, “Their prices are competitive, their service unparalleled, and their selection is extensive and if they don’t have it they’ll find it! Jeff and J are a dream to work with. ’nuff said!”
