We love working with local organizations and giving back to our community anyway we can. We look forward to working on many more US Speedskating events.

In The Event, a Utah based event production team, has worked closely with the US Speedskating organization on several events held in 2013. Known for their modular LED event décor pieces, In The Event produced a modern design concept for a recent US Speedskating Board of Directors meeting held in downtown Salt Lake City, Utah. The In The Event team also provided sponsorship for an athlete lunch hosted at the Olympic Oval training facility in Kearns, Utah.

For the recently held Board of Directors Meeting, In The Event provided décor for a cocktail reception, awards dinner and an after party. In The Event transformed the general meeting room for the reception and awards dinner, creating an entirely new space that was ideal for honoring award recipients. The awards dinner recognized board alumni. Creating high impact in transitioning the room from meeting space to a celebratory installation, In The Event utilized white draping throughout the entire room. The draping coupled with LED lighting allowed In The Event to seamlessly set the tone for the evening with cool shades of blue and white, conveying an ice theme.

To further enhance the ambiance, vignettes complete with chrome mannequins clothed in US Speedskating uniforms were placed around the room, sitting atop LED platforms. Finishing the look, beaded curtains were used as a backdrop for the vignettes. The stage tied into the design with an LED dance floor and a podium featuring the US Speedskating logo. To present the awards, there was a stepped platform mimicking the Olympic awards presentation set up. The stage was also set with the US flag and US Speedskating flags. The tables were set with floor length navy pin tuck linens with a white shimmer table runner, complete with a monochromatic array of white flowers placed in alternating mirrored and clear glass vases. LED high boys, bars and coffee tables we’re also used at the reception and awards dinner.

Prior to the Board of Director’s meeting, In The Event teamed up with Main Event Catering to sponsor a US Speedskating athlete lunch and meet-and-greet held at the Olympic Oval training facility. In The Event’s modular LED furniture was provided at this event, creating a branded LED bar and a wall tower. In The Event also assembled floral centerpieces for the lunch. “We love working with local organizations and giving back to our community anyway we can. We look forward to working on many more US Speedskating events,” says Robert LaSpina, In The Event Co-Founder and Vice President.
