Markey's Helps Celebrate Iowa's Best in Technology


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 switching.


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.
