Energy Tower Press Gala

Western Audio Works provided sound, and video for the Energy Tower Press event in Centenial Plaza in downtown Midland, TX on April 4, 2013. It was such a fun event to be a part of. The main focal part of the event was a video depicting the architectural design this new building will bring to Midlands skyline. This 58 story high rise will take the place of the former Midland County Courthouse and will include a underground parking structure, convention center, performing arts center, hotel, shops, apartments, and office spaces. Perhaps the two new features that will be a hit for Midland and offer a never before scene view is the Sky Loby and the Sky Bar.

On request from William Meyer President of Energy Related Properties, Western Audio Works complied a DVD including the video and related press materials, and burn 300 copies in short notice, This disc was included in the press kit that was handed out during the event.

The video was projected on a 24x 13.5ft Draper Stage Screen, With a Sharp 4700 lumen projector. The press event drew reporters from all over the Permian Basin area with press kits being released Nationwide.  

The Whirlwind Press Mite was deployed for TV and Radio feeds. This little box provided to be a valuable tool, allowing the press to plug in and receive high quality audio from one mic on the podium.

Jacqui Sutton and the Frontier Jazz Orchestra provided the music during the reception after the press event. They where a great band to work with and brought a lot to the event to make the atmosphere conducive for business discussions and talk about the tower.

It was also a great pleasure to work with Reed Boyd from Boyd's Events. Reed provided the uplighting, and some of the powered speakers needed to cover the entire area.  

I would also like to thank Shellie Alvarado from You're Invited by Shellie for contacting us to provide the technical production for this event.
