DIRTT Connext

A multi-site event complete with a 40 foot wide virtual reality projection experience we delivered for DIRTT.

About The DIRTT Connext Event

DIRTT is revolutionizing the construction industry. And the industry needs a good revolution. The material waste, energy use, and carbon footprint of constructing buildings are just some of the things that make it an industry in deep need of a reset. Simply recycling and using less intensive materials won’t cut it. We need to change the entire approach. The result: Doing It Right This Time. DIRTT walks our own talk. Each of us, in every part of the company, constantly searches for and implements better ways to deliver sustainable construction projects. We keep an eye on ways to minimize our own waste and energy use during production.

In 2015 and 2016 DIRTT engaged with SPL to provide lighting, sound, and video production for DIRTT Connext, an annual sales conference in Chicago. It was a multi-venue event over several days.

The Challenge

With events spanning multiple venues over several days, we had to be prepared for the unexpected and be flexible to last minute changes.  Our experienced team handled things with skill and composure.

Our Solution

DIRTT promotes a fun and upbeat corporate atmosphere.  We met their level of excitement with both our design approaches and personnel, creating an enjoyable and professional experience for all parties.

The Results

The result to date has been two successful years of conferences.  We value our professional relationships, and work hard to grow them into long term partnerships.
