bb Blanc (www.bbblanc.com), a premier provider of audiovisual and entertainment experiences, has recently finished its audiovisual support for the 29th Annual Conference of the IATA Ground Handling Council (IGHC) at the Westin Harbour Castle in Toronto. The conference is one of the airline industry's premier events and a central point for sharing the latest intelligence and developments. The IGHC conference was organized by World Tek Events and U.S.-based event planner that engaged bb Blanc for audiovisual services.
"The conference featured a main room plenary, several 'breakout' rooms, and a trade show area, meaning there was quite a lot of ground to cover," recalls Nicholas Louza, account manager for bb Blanc. "Not only were Video Backdrops and Audio a key concern, the lighting arrangements were changed each day to provide many “different” looks as the conference progressed."
The Plenary session Video was supported by three screens blended with 5-14k HD Projectors to create multiple animations & background overlays with IMAG for more involved presentations. The Breakout room/Workshops incorporated multiple Power Point & Keynote presentations with Panel discussions and required both Video & Audio support, while the trade show area made use of six 75" monitors and audio feeds. Moving lighting fixtures and wall uplight treatments rounded out the effects.
“It has been the best AV and technical experience I’ve ever had in North America," remarked Jill Schafer from World Tek Events. "There was a great deal of diligence and investment by bb Blanc in this project, and they were extremely thorough with all of the logistics and were consummate professionals all around. It was a delight to interact with them the entire time."
The IGHC conference saw over 500 guests representing all aspects of the air travel industry, from airlines, ground services members, manufacturers, and operational solution providers. The conference ran from May 15 to 18.
