Annual Iowa Pork Congress was held at the
Iowa Events Center on January 22-23, 2014.
For two decades, Markey’s has
partnered with the Iowa Pork Producers Association to supply all the audiovisual
equipment and professional expertise for
this event, which promotes one of the primary industries in Iowa.
Markey’s provided basic breakout
gear and support for the educational seminars during the event, as well as the
Iowa Pork Producers Council annual meeting. For the Awards Gala and
Reception, we provided microphones and two video 9’ x 12’ projection screens, and
rigged the stage lighting, the pipe and drape and multiple Coemar colored
Over the course of the Congress,
Markey’s was pleased to provide 15 desktop and laptop computers, along with technical
support, for several internet cafes and private meetings. Markey’s also did
pre-production work, recording voice announcements detailing seminar schedules
and sponsor information. These were set up to play automatically at
pre-determined times throughout the event.
Markey’s has had a long
relationship supplying audiovisual support to the World Pork Expo as well, which
is the premier international pork event held in Des Moines at the
fairgrounds each summer.
