The Technology Association of Iowa held its Annual Conference
and “Prometheus Awards” on April 9, 2014, in the meeting rooms, Grand Ballroom
and HyVee Hall B in the Community Choice Credit Union Convention Center. This event draws a crowd of 700 attendees,
all there to celebrate what some call “The Oscars of Iowa’s high tech industry.”
The event brings leaders from technology, business, education and government
together to recognize the year's technology achievements and to celebrate Iowa
innovation. As a part sponsor of the
event, Markey's worked with meeting
planner In Any Event as
well as media production company Applied Art & Technology to maintain a
high level of excellence throughout, while working within the event budget.
The Prometheus Awards audiovisual equipment included 90’
downstage truss with (10) Arri 2K wash lights, (4) Source 4 ellipsoidals for the
podium and the torches. Twelve cyc lights
were utilized for illuminating the dark wood behind stage. Markey’s rigged Christie HD12K projectors for
the event, and Applied Art & Technology provided the camera work and video
The Torchlite Lounge was set up in the lobby, where Markey’s
used a Martin “Fire Light” and Source 4 ellipsoidals with a “torchlight” GOBO
to give the illusion of flames above the DJ.
Markey’s also provided all the projector packages, wireless
mics, mixers and laptop computers for the breakout rooms, the training session
and the general session.
