In April, we provided technology and labor to over 20 events that took us from coast to coast! There was a lot of variety in this month’s events- we did gaming conventions, corporate conferences, racing and more! We are highlighting a few of them in this blog post. You can also view more of what we have done on our Facebook page.
AACR Annual Meeting | April 1-5 | Washington DC
The American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) is the oldest and largest scientific organization in the world. They are dedicated to preventing and curing cancer through research, education, communication and collaboration. Reaction Audio Visual has been an invaluable partner to the AACR for over eight years, providing them with professional event technology and production services for a handful of conferences, workshops, and annual meetings. For this AACR Annual Meeting, attendees were invited to stretch their boundaries, form collaborations, attend sessions outside their own areas of expertise, and learn how to apply exciting new concepts, tools, and techniques to their own research. Reaction AV provided event technology across four different hotels in five days to the different ballrooms, scenic sets, sessions and more! It was a busy week to say the least.
Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach | April 13-15 | Long Beach, CA
2017 marks our 9th year of working with The Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach! We first started working with the Grand Prix for their 2008 event because they had a major challenge; they wanted to move the technology they used in their executive suites on the track to HD. But their provider was only accommodating antiquated technology. We were able to offer them similar pricing to their current provider, yet upgrade all 250 monitors used on the track to HD. This provided a better picture in the suites of the live race as well as a better appearance too. The Grand Prix is the longest running major “street race” in North America. It is an open-wheel race held on a street circuit. The attendance for the weekend exceeds 200,000 people! It is known as the worlds fastest beach party as the track takes over a portion of downtown Long Beach for 3 days of racing! Reaction AV has been the official audio visual provider and sponsor for many years equipping the event with HD technology for the executive suites, supporting the exhibitors in the Lifestyle Expo, as well as providing for the concerts.
Star Wars Celebration | April 13-16 | Orlando, FL
Another year…another celebration! Star Wars Celebration is a fan gathering to celebrate the Star Wars franchise. It began in 1999 and still continues every year to this day. 2017’s celebration took place at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL. The convention celebrated the 40th Anniversary of Star Wars: A New Hope and the upcoming film, Star Wars: The Last Jedi. This was the first Star Wars Celebration that Harrison Ford attended. There was also a surprise appearance by George Lucas and John Williams with the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra, who performed parts of the soundtrack. Mark Hamill also held a special tribute to Carrie Fisher. Every year, the celebration showcases all aspects of the franchise. Reaction AV provided all the event technology solutions including all of the main stages (Galaxy, Celebration, Behind the Scenes, Collectors stage and more), the show office, the media room, the VIP lounge and we even live streamed the whole event! It was an incredible weekend!
