Freeman Audio Visual Canada is proud to announce that it has won the Canadian Event Perspective Award in the category of Best Audio Visual Design for an Event for production of the 2015 Winter Cities Shake-Up. The award was presented by the Canadian Special Events Media Group.

The inaugural Winter Cities Shake-Up, held in Edmonton in January 2015, served as a gathering of urban planners and designers, entrepreneurs and business people, artists, cultural and community organizers, and people who live in winter cities and want to take advantage of all winter has to offer. The conference featured three days of presentations from internationally-renowned experts and rising stars in winter design, winter business and winter fun. Given its focus, the Winter Cities Shake-Up needed a differentiator from other conferences.

“The City of Edmonton’s approach to winter was aiming to be different,” said Doug Hawtin, Account Executive with Freeman Audio Visual Canada. “The goal was to embrace how winter can feel and show new ways of looking at something that has been lived through a million times before.”

There were a number of major innovative technical aspects to Winter Cities Shake-Up that garnered industry and social media attention. Among them was the curved 132’W x 21’H Peroni projection screen which has been widely touted as the first if its kind in Canada. The second creative technical aspect was the life-size snow globe in the centre of the stage.

“As our audio visual partner, Freeman Audio Visual understood what we were doing from the start and helped us enhance the experience, which aligned with the way that we were aiming to change the perception of winter for our delegates,” said Rebecca Swanson, Director of Communications, BUKSA Strategic Conference Services. “They came to BUKSA Strategic Conference Services with an idea, which was to create a screen that encompassed the room. This was something that had never been done in Canada, and we were keen to be the first to try it. It surpassed our expectations.”

Freeman audiovisuel Canada est fière d’annoncer qu’elle a remporté le prix Canadian Event Perspective dans la catégorie « Best Audio Visual Design for an Event » (Meilleure conception audiovisuelle pour un évènement) pour la réalisation du Winter Cities Shake Up 2015.

L’évènement Winter Cities Shake Up se devait de se distinguer des autres conférences, puisque par sa nature, la vision de l’hiver de la ville d’Edmonton se voulait différente. Le but était de s’ouvrir aux diverses sensations de l’hiver et d’illustrer une image renouvelée de ce que nous avons vécu un million de fois. Freeman audiovisuel a su retenir l’attention de l’industrie et des médias sociaux en utilisant, entre autres, deux aspects techniques particulièrement novateurs. Le premier aspect comportait un écran de projection incurvé de marque Peroni d’une largeur de 40 mètres et d’une hauteur de 6,5 m, écran largement reconnu comme étant le tout premier du genre au Canada. Le second aspect technique innovant fut le globe immense au centre de la scène représentant une boule à neige géante : https://youtu.be/EIgu36AqLxQ
