Amway India Gala Dinner
Transforming a Desert Dream into Reality
An expectant audience of 4,500 convened at the Lisaili Fort for Amway India’s gala dinner celebration. With the client being the largest MICE group from India, the pressure was on to deliver a truly memortable and incredible event experience.
Line of business: Direct Selling Company
We Delivered: Technical Execution
We were tasked with the delivery and design of the show’s technical specification from concept to completion. The desert setting came with a unique set of challenges including the event location, a vast site made up of mostly soft sand. The client also had very specific design needs for the gala dinner, wishing to keep visible technical equipment to a minimum.
The site of the gala dinner was accurately 3D mapped using a drone to provide an immersive virtual version of the multifaceted event in its initial planning stages. Practical and architectural lighting beautifully lit the 2,000 m² area while minimising the visibility of the structures and fixtures. A projection mapping onto the surface of the fort structure and an LED wall added extra wow-factor. To maintain the aesthetic of the space, audio equipment was integrated into the set without compromising the audio performance or the set design.
A spectacular lighting design provided dynamic aerial effects as well as creating the perfect party atmosphere on stage and in the audience spaces. The vast rig featured Clay Paky Super Sharpy, Sharpy 2 and Alpha Spot 1500 HPE fixtures as well as Chauvet Colorado LED Battens and LED PARs to name a just a few.
A whopping 96 ROE MC-9H 9mm LED panels created the impressive screen on stage with all video content running from 2 Green Hippo V4 Taiga media servers.
Six Christie Roadster 20k HD projectors were used to create the impressive video mapping onto the fort structure.
The high-quality audio set-up featured ground stacked line array D&B J series PA, J Subs behind the fort to provide low end and Y point source to deliver an immersive surround sound experience. All audio was controlled through a Digico SD9 desk.
