The Importance of an 8x8 Stage

There were much larger events in Miami yesterday. There were stages that eclipsed this one in size exponentially. We'd just pulled hundreds of decks out of the stadium parking lot up the road from the previous weekend's ten-year mega-festival. But on THIS Monday, THIS stage was important.

The Fashion Show Runway Miracle in Detroit

(Made in Detroit, Michigan) It's not often that you cry in the events industry; corporate content specifically isn't that interesting and most entertainment events pull on the peak experience strings, not the ones that make you think about the world and how to make it better. It's also not too often that you find clients that actually inspire you to do better, or for that matter an employer who supports it with action. I was following up on a letter we received thanking us for a donation, on official letterhead. I saw fashion show runway. I saw nonprofit. I emailed her, and called her. I had to hear this story.

This event is a true example of Washington DC Full Event Production teamwork; our team here at PM1 rocked it. There was a change almost daily for Ryan Adams/CAD to deal with along with making sure gear was in the right city at the right time after every change was made.
