EMEA HERBALIFE EXTRAVAGANZA 2016

FORUM KARLIN, PRAGUE

THE BRIEF

Well-known for their large stadium-sized events, global nutrition and weight management company Herbalife returned to Prague this September for their EMEA Herbalife Extravaganza 2016.

Chosen by agency Taylor Bennett Partners to provide full technical production Hawthorn helped deliver a dramatic ‘Fire and Ice’ themed celebration for 2,400 guests.
 

THE EXECUTION

Guests were met with a light sculpture designed to represent the collision of the fire and ice elements, created using 400 individually controlled 400mm square RGBW LED cubes.

18 Clay Paky Sharpys and 18 Sharpy Washes lit the central stage, complementing the sculpture without obscuring it. Elsewhere and in the VIP area we used two curved trusses, each featuring 7 Martin Viper Profiles.

For video we used 10mm GLUX LED – providing high resolution and great off-axis viewing. In total, 84 sections of video were used, including two photo opportunity walls. For audio, we provided a d&b system consisting of four hangs of six V Tops, twelve V Subs and eight Q Series Tops, all run from D80 amplifiers and controlled using a Yamaha CL5 digital mixing console.

The monitor board was a Yamaha QL1 while the band used Sennhesier G3 IEM and Martin Audio wedges. The two desks were connected via Dante and shared two Rio3224D and Rio1608 for inputs and outs.
