Partner Summit 2016
Corporate Events Management and Production
Today’s digital security threats are more sophisticated and complex than ever. At the same time, computing advancements are opening up new possibilities for exploring, connecting, sharing, and building a better world. Intel Security focuses on security solutions that mitigate today’s risks and anticipate tomorrow’s. These solutions not only defend against attacks, but also enable us to explore the digital world without fear.
Intel Security is on a mission to make security integrated and ubiquitous. And with the broadest security portfolio, they’re well on their way. But they can’t do it alone. They count on their partners to deliver the solutions they passionately create.
Partner Summit, produced by Executive Visions, is an annual event designed to celebrate and strengthen the channel partner ecosystem. The event is attended by solution providers (reseller partners) and developer partners, who integrate or embed Intel Security’s technologies and deliver complementary technologies.
With the theme of “Ascend”, this crucially important live experience endeavored to build momentum, motivate partners to invest in Intel Security and accelerate the adoption of its technology. The event offered a platform to engage with executive leadership, gain a deeper understanding of corporate strategy, confirm the commitment to help partners build sustainable business models, and position Intel Security as the leader in the security market.
The three-day event at the Waldorf Astoria in Boca Raton featured a full schedule of general sessions, breakout tracks, entertainment and social gatherings. EVI provided a full complement of event production services including top to bottom project management, complete staging and technical, creative services and onsite show producing for general sessions and awards show.
One of the feature creative elements was a dynamic show opener featuring a live drummer and DJ housed inside an onstage “human boom box”. The 3-D projection mapped box was constructed as an integrated piece of the main set. The performers jammed out a pre-show mash-up synced to an explosion of visual graphics mapped onto the boom box surface, creating great energy and enthusiasm leading up to the show open. The performance was custom designed to support the “Ascend” event theme and serve as a springboard for the head of channel sales to launch the meeting. The mapped graphics continued during the general session as visual support for keynote presentations and panel discussions.
The set shifted to a different look and feel for Day Two, supporting “transformation” as one of the event sub themes. Contemporary, 3-D set pieces were incorporated into the structure, providing focal points for EVI lighting designers to create unique looks for each moment of the show.
The Partner Summit production is part of EVI’s year-round involvement as a long-term strategic event production partner with Intel Security.
