52 000 visitors - 12 000 more than last year! - 400 exhibitors and 300 speakers! That was the Online Marketing Rockstars (OMR) Festival 2019 and that rocked again!
But not only the number of marketing enthusiasts has increased, also the technical volume has increased considerably! A total of 613 tons of material were installed, and that in just 4 days!
PRG provided a 360-degree service this year, in addition to rigging, lighting and video technology, the team also installed the complete audio technology, the scenic elements and deco. 62 truckloads of equipment, packed in over 3,000 cases, were delivered to the Hamburg exhibition venue, unloaded and then installed in six exhibition halls. A stringent logistics system developed over the years led to a smooth process.
But before the first lamp could be installed and the first video screen was set up, a whole of 328,000 meters of cable had to be laid. More than 1,000 motors were used to install the trusses, lamps, loudspeakers and screens in the hall roofs.
A total of 6,621 lighting fixtures were installed for the various areas of the festival. These not only illuminated the exhibitor stands and conference stages, but also created a party atmosphere - in addition to the many lectures and masterclasses, the after-party was also exuberant! Scooter, Casper & Marteria, Trettmann, Dendemann and Oli P. brilliantly entertained the visitors.
And the whole of the PRG team was on the starting blocks, because this year's OMR Festival was the biggest so far. A total of 581 square meters of LED walls were installed and around 1,200 square meters of projection were set up. In addition to that, whether you believe it or not, 649 loudspeakers were part of this great event.
PRG audio-expert André Aspelmeier explains among other things which challenges had to be mastered at the OMR Festival 2019.
But how can an event service provider master such a mammoth project, with such an enormous amount of technology and in such a short time frame?
Christian Unger, PRG Account Manager, has a clear opinion on this: "The OMR Festival is a very special project for us because of its enormous size. This results in big challenges: one is the delivery and implementation of the whole amount of equipment, perfectly coordinated logistics and in addition the necessary manpower. I would like to take this opportunity to thank our whole team, who made the whole thing possible and thus realized a perfect OMR Festival 2019!"
