PHILADELPHIA — In early September, more than 500 attendees gathered at the Loews Hotel Philadelphia for the Beyond Sport Summit 2013, which featured notable figures in the sports industry, featuring former NBA Commissioner David Stern, NFL Philadelphia Owner Jeffrey Lurie, ESPN Sports Anchor Kevin Negandhi and more.
Due to high media exposure and the caliber of the speakers at the event, the client’s expectations were very high. PSAV provided staging, audio, lighting and video, including a custom-built hard set designed around the Beyond Sport brand, custom-printed sponsor signage, illuminated scenic cubes, 20 wireless microphones, 90 feet of truss, 8 LED movers. Although some last-minute challenges arose, the PSAV team handled them with a calm demeanor and overcame them all.
Throughout the event, the PSAV team received positive feedback from the client, who told them that everything was perfectly executed by an ‘awesome and most professional’ crew, and it was one of the best designed sets they ever had.
“In the same spirit of the Beyond Sport organization, our PSAV crew epitomized what teamwork truly means. From the sales phase to the load-out, everyone displayed the attitude it takes to win,” said PSAV Assistant Director of Event Technology Daniel Esteves. “We really hit this one out of the park (pun intended)!”
