A globally renowned event and brand development company based in New York, New York, contacted Mahaffey Fabric Structures needing two structures for a client’s upcoming corporate event. The customer was looking for a large, prestigious space to showcase their client’s innovation over the past 100 years. Mahaffey was able to meet their needs by providing two clearspan structures – one with white fabric tops and walls, the other with clear tops and walls – complete with double glass doors, enhanced lighting options, raised flooring and carpet.
How We Helped
The client has always been on the cutting edge of modern technology, so it was imperative that the event be representative of that. The purpose of this project was to create a state-of-the-art event space for our customer’s client. The customer requested two separate structures – one to house a VIP dining and cocktail area, the other set up as a presentation facility. The end client was going to have over 1,300 VIPs in attendance, and the objective was to provide spectacular venues to showcase the client’s innovative and storied history. It was requested that the presentation area be set up theater-style, complete with custom graphics on the exterior, blackout fabric for the audiovisual component, and an enhanced lighting system. The client also requested that the attendees’ views be unobstructed, so even the double peak tent was not an option due to center poles.
We supplied them with two clearspan structures:
- 50’ x 115’
- 132’ x 150’
The prominence of this company made it unique. The event took place in June, and the client wanted the VIP area to be covered completely with clear fabric to add an uber-lounge feel. A clear structure was also requested in order for guests to see the corporate headquarters behind it.
Results and Future Plans
The customer was exceedingly pleased with the finished product – a 15m x 35m (50’ x 115’) clear top structure and a 40m x 45m (132’ x 150’) clearspan fabric structure. The careful planning, forward thinking, and made-to-order solutions resulted in a successful event that drew rave reviews from attendees. They were able to enjoy two days and nights of meetings, meals, and modern technology in a beautifully transformed locale. The 25,000+ square feet of structures was so well received that the customer has contacted us to provide two more structures this fall.
