HOTEL JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort & Spa
EVENT PURPOSE Annual meeting and gala
The blank canvas of the resort’s lawn meant a lot of custom building – five stages, a large lighted tent, lighting trusses – that was required to do the circus theme justice.
Contortionists, aerial and pole acrobats, balancing acts, a ringmaster – there was never a break in the action thanks to this event’s five stages.
While the performers captivated the audience, the illuminated Ferris wheel we erected on the lawn brought out the circus- and carnival-loving kid in everyone.
“Tip: If you’re building a large outdoor event on a budget, go big: Skip the small, expensive decor pieces in favor of high-impact focal pieces that really support your theme.”
