About The Project

Pampered Chef has been around for more than three decades, and their independent consultants are extremely loyal. They come to the Summer Convention eager to learn what’s new, reconnect with other members and recognize the achievements of their teams.

Our job was to produce a show that sparked the imagination of attendees, showcased new products, and provided an event highlighted by celebration and recognition. We designed and fabricated a unique, multi-level set, created several media pieces, and produced dynamic content for three days of general session.

Challenges

Whereas previous shows were held in a traditional theater space, here we were confronted with a large exhibit hall space. Create a staging concept to make recognition components of the show both seamless and memorable.

Solution

We built out the stage and created a dynamic scenic solution to distract from an otherwise underwhelming room. We brought the experience to life with scenic video panels, a panoramic screen, and illuminating stairs. For awards night, we provided structures and traffic patterns that ensured efficiency and also allowed a special experience for all award recipients.

We can’t thank you enough. We are thrilled with process and outcome of our Summer Conference and so appreciate the hard work, skilled management and creative vision you brought to it. You are simply the best. Thank you so much for all that you—and the entire team— does.
