Case Study | Facebook Infra
DISCERNING CLIENT. “WOW” FACTOR DESIGN. FAST-PACED PRODUCTION. NO MISSTEPS.
AVT Productions has worked with Facebook since 2010, and each year we produce 20-30 events for Facebook and Instagram (owned by Facebook). For example, we have managed event production for Facebook during their annual offsite, 1,500-person, internal Infra Summit, where Facebook’s top engineers come together to share ideas and discuss technology trends.
The show’s size and budget increase every year, with the number of attendees growing from 800 to 1,500. We worked with them both inside and outside the ballroom, providing thematic and scenic design in the lounge and tradeshow areas that tied into the company’s brand and the event theme.
We’re a trusted partner that excels at designing and producing event experiences on time and on budget for organizations like Facebook that host large, world-class events. We develop creative production solutions that make our clients’ lives easier, consistently meet their high expectations, and keep their audiences entertained.
Innovation Through Exploration
In 2014, the Infra Summit theme was Innovation through Exploration, and our team built a 170-foot-wide custom projection stage and provided seamless animation loops transporting attendees into deep space.
In 2015, we built a truss tunnel, then installed plasma screens on the walls and ceiling and built custom video animation that changed as attendees went through the tunnel and entered the general session room. We also flew a drone through the Expo area, through the tunnel, and into each of the main rooms, while capturing the flight on the video.
In addition, we storyboarded then created an opening video where deep-space asteroids flew through the air and converged to form an Infrabot that then became the center backdrop behind the presenters.
At all times we provide the solid event production that Facebook demands.
Thank you all for making our Infra Summit a huge success. I was ecstatic with how everything came together, and I appreciate all the hard work you all put into this. The entire team was blown away with the entire event.
