For the second year, The Iowa Bankers Association Annual
Convention was held September 15-17, 2013 in the Community Choice Credit Union
Convention Center of the Iowa Events Center.
This year’s theme was “Be a Superhero in Your Community,” and Markey’s, the preferred in-house audiovisual provider, was charged with carrying out that theme.
The convention consisted of a General Session, breakfast,
luncheon, breakout sessions and an Exhibitor Lounge. Prior to the event, Markey’s audio pre-production
work included voice-over recording of cues for various sessions and for
presenter announcements, as well as the preparation of Super Hero-themed
Through tasteful use of lighting, gobos, sound elements and
the client’s banners, we were able to hit the target and help create an
environment which would be both fun and celebratory, while also challenging the
attendees to “Be a Super Hero in Your Community.” Lighting included:
- (2) Martin
MAC 250 Moving Head Lights w/ custom glass gobos - for Superhero searchlights!
- (24) Coemar
& Chauvet uplights to illuminate wood paneling behind stage & alcove
- Arri 2K
& Source 4 Ellipsoidal lights for stage wash & banners
The video elements included HD graphic content that was
generated by the customer, and Markey’s staff complemented this using a Sony
HXC-100 HD camera for Image Magnification and Christie HD8k projectors to
maintain the detail of the graphics on the 21’ x 11.5’ house screen.
To further promote a
team feeling to the conference, multiple audio feeds from Markey’s mix were
used in conjunction with the house audio routing system to send different audio
elements to different parts of the building, so that all 350 attendees were
able to stay well connected with all the proceedings as the conference
