Due to the green focus of the event, SportsMark Creative Services took the initiative to utilize recycled and repurposed materials, such as bio-fiber wheat products and post-consumer laminates for the stage, stage backdrop, bar, and in much of the furniture used during the event. A bio-diesel generator produced all energy for the three-day event, including the use of a low voltage LED lighting system.
SportsMark’s elegant, but natural looking materials, design, and customized decor accentuated the environmental tone of the conference, enabling it to be comfortable and eco-friendly without compromise. All production and décor elements from the event were re-used or donated, resulting in near 0% post-program waste.
SportsMark managed all aspects of corporate event planning, creative design, decor and production, financial management, staffing, transportation, and overall onsite event management.
The conference was considered hugely successful on all levels: planning, design, execution, content, attendance, location, service, staffing and, most importantly, the facilitation of meaningful dialogue. Conference organizers and attendees indicated that the content and discussions were the “best ever” since the event’s inception two years ago, and they appreciated the environmentally friendly, yet elegant, design of the set and hospitality area. In fact, the client has already awarded SportsMark the assignment for producing and managing next year’s conference.
