AVEX also produced a high end fundraiser at a private residence. The “Big Game Big Give” event featured multiple sponsors, vendors, creative professionals all working together to produce an “outdoor” event like no other. The bar was incredibly high in terms of technical execution as our traditional indoor methods would need to adapt.

Custom sponsored ice bars with sponsor logo walls were installed and lit by our expert lighting technicians.
Event the cars parked in the parking lot were lit with theatrical style lighting, as was the residence behind.
Moving inside the home revealed a feast for the senses. Dramatic lighting effects, music, and video were ever-present throughout the home. Here is a view of the living room, complete with an impressive set of 3 chandeliers. Side note, the DJ, who’s music was pumped into every room in the house, outdoors and in the tent, was located on a balcony in the living room.
Close Circuit TV system

The closed circuit TVs in the living room were hung from the existing marble railing. Special care was needed to ensure the TVs were hung both safely and securely as well as not scratching or marring the finish of the marble.
Every inch of the interior of the home was covered in lighting, creating a truly immersive experience.

Heading to the tent
A view of the fully draped and lit hallway from the home to the tent. It was about 3 degrees Fahrenheit outside but a sunny 70 degrees inside the tent at all times.
The bulk of the event centered around a 40’X200’ tent which included a large sound system for live performances, theatrical lighting treatments on the ceiling and walls, and dynamic lighting system for the dance floor. In addition, double sided TVs were rigged all along the tent so that everyone could see sponsor messaging and IMAG onstage at all times. All rigging was wrapped in white fabric to create a incredibly neat and tidy effect.
LED GoBo lighting was focused on the ceiling to give the tent a more festive and exciting look.
Another look at the lighting design in action. Overall the event was a massive undertaking because of the nature of tent rigging. We had to think creatively to solve spacial requirement issues, proper distribution of rigging weight, and production of the live event its’ self. With very little rehearsal time, we were expected to keep the show moving forward at all times.
