For the 2014 National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA) Annual Meeting, PRG worked closely with the association, who welcomed 8,000 attendees to the event. Taking place in Nashville, TN at the city’s brand new Music City Convention Center, PRG fully supported the General Session for 6,000 people with lighting, audio, video, scenic, and staging as well as the labor and creative support for the session. We provided content capture and live streaming services for all of the general session meetings as well as full translation services.
The stage in the general session was 60’ wide x 24’ deep x 4’ high and was outfitted with a 100’ wide projection screen as well as audio line arrays, and video image magnification screens for the large audience area.
For the last night, the PRG team transformed the general session space to handle a Martina McBride concert for all of the attendees. The creative team designed a full concert lighting and audio package to meet the artist’s technical rider and was incorporated into the general session system for a quick and easy transition between the two very different events in the one space.
In addition to the main general session space, PRG fully equipped and supported an overflow room for 500 attendees for the general session, 12 breakout rooms, five forum session rooms, two ballroom luncheons, and a large board of directors meeting.
The larger meeting consisted of three concurrent conventions over eight days – NRECA, National Rural Utilities Cooperative Finance Corporation, and Touchstone Energy. PRG provided full support for all aspects of the larger meeting—educational and technical session support, including presentation management services—multiple presenter support, digital signage, and mobile app.
